Firstly, thanks to Cheznandy, we have followed your posts down to Australia, taking lots of notes for our trip to New Zealand. The Majestic Princess is a beautiful new ship and we are enjoying cruising once again.
A few observations we have made so far:
We registered on the first day for the Ultimate Ship Tour $175 aud/pp only to be told that they now use a ballot system and that we are not guaranteed a spot. Not first in, best dressed as in previous cruises.
Laundry for Elites on this cruise is a 2 day turn around.
We have a fantastic cabin steward who has been with the Majestic since day one and is always up for a chat and laugh.
The International cafe is always busy. Seating is limited with everyone overflowing into the Vines wine bar.
There is no designated walking/track like the Royal and Regal. We walk around deck 18, walking through the sports/basket ball court.
Great to see the colour carpets coding for hallways, blue for port (left)side and red for starboard (right) side. Always helpful when leaving the lifts to find your side of the ship!
Whilst loving the Princess luxury beds (very comfortable), the beautiful Piazza and the little things that make Princess our preferred cruising choice, we still prefer the layout of the Diamond and Sapphire Princess ships.
Must away for now AFL about to start on MUTS.
Go EAGLES !!!
