July 25, 2021 Live From Majestic Princess Alaska sailing


Recommended Posts

Right now 428 of us watching - lol. I did notice what looked like a drape or covering of some type over the balconies on the forward facing cabins. If anyone is in one of those cabins, could you tell me what that might be?

Still hoping someone can report on how formal night looked.  What percentage of men wore tuxes or wore a jacket and tie or just wore a nice short and slacks.

One table had a gentleman in an orange futbol jersey, with the women in dresses. The table next to them had full tuxes. From what I saw around the ship I think formal night was maybe 50/50. 
 

Sweet Soul Music was really good and a lot of fun.

I know you can get specialty coffee at the international cafe, is there a place on the lido deck for coffee.? No coffee and cones on the majestic. Thanks for the help and enjoy your vacay!

I haven't been on Majestic, but on Regal and Royal they have specialty coffee in a section of the buffet.

OK, curious to know how it was on your cruise. Especially, since we will be on there Aug 01-08. Here are my main questions:

1) Is there dancing in the piazza and Explorers Lounge?
2) Since it’s a fully vaccinated cruise, are masks required?
3) What is the buffet like?

4) Are masks required in the Alaskan ports.

They often do that for front cabins in bad weather and during maneuvers. Safety and visibility protection for the bridge.

Are reading any of the posts here?  These have all been discussed.

We do have that here, yes. For what it is worth I’ve had much faster service ordering a latte in the app and having it brought to me, versus standing in line to order at the cafe.

Thanks everyone for your posts, I appreciate you taking the time to answer questions.

 

Question:  What time were you able to get off the ship in Juneau?  Also, which deck did you disembark from?  Thanks.

No guarantee which deck you will get off on.  It all depends on the tides.  We've been on a ship and gotten of on one deck and later in the day the gangway was switched to board on a different deck.  Tides in Alaska can shift quite dramatically over the course of a day.

I’m enjoying seeing your ship in Juneau on the live webcam. Missing posts from @HaveDogWillTravelbut I sincerely hope you are having a fabulous cruise. I also hope you have a good room steward as we are 2 doors down in cabin R730 when we sail in a few weeks.

There seem to be some learning opportunities with getting off the ship in port. We have been sitting in the theater waiting for our tour to get off the ship. They took two groups about 15 minutes ago off deck 6, and then nobody else. I can only assume there are issues with the port authorities and the number of folks that can exit.

You may not know, but I assume others who are not on PCL excursions were able to get off like normal?

I hope I am missing something regarding a dance music venue. On the Royal Princess and Regal Princess there is a "Club 6" adjacent to the casino for DJ music, a bar and dancing.  Where the Club 6 is located on the other ships, the Majestic deck plan shows "VIP Gaming" and "Private Gaming," and I cannot find an alternative to Club 6.  The Princess Patters posted on this thread show "10:30 Onward   All Requests Express with DJ Sakary" in the Hollywood Conservatory.  Has anyone experienced this and can describe what it is like?  Is there a dance floor in the conservatory? Thank you.

Thank you for your response.  Sorry, I guess I should of mentioned that we are doing an independent tour and that is why I was curious as to what time you got off the ship.  Hope your tour is fabulous.

One word of warning about linking your reservations... Princess has stated something to the effect that if somebody tests positive for Covid or develops symptoms, they AND THEIR ENTIRE PARTY OR CLOSE CONTACTS  will be subject to refused boarding and or quarantine.  That COULD put you in jeopardy if your booking has been linked to theirs!

 

Wow!  Definitely something for some folks to think about before doing this.

We can make reservations for the show times in the theater, but not an actual seat number.image.thumb.png.59570534a96e2f103659aa724526d86f.png
 

How far in advance were you able to book the shows on the app?

 

Thanks for sharing your experience on these boards. We'll be there Aug 22nd

Any word on whether or no they will do the "Ultimate Ship Tour"?

I believe that's mentioned in the frequently asked questions on the princess site that unfortunately due to covid they will not be doing those tours behind the scenes
