Majestic Princess

Our Ship Review

Since joining her Royal-class sisters Royal Princess and Regal Princess in 2017, Majestic Princess has reigned over several corners of the Pacific, initially offering itineraries in Asia (she was designed for the Chinese market and sailed there and Australia and New Zealand after her debut) and is scheduled to cruise the Pacific Coast and Alaska through Spring 2022. Touches of Asian influence remain in the décor and in a restaurant lineup certain to satisfy cruisers who love Chinese cuisine, from dim sum to elevated Cantonese. From the glittering Piazza—the social heart of this 3,560-passenger ship—to the Lotus Spa with its soothing Enclave thermal suite, Majestic Princess offers a less-frenetic ambience than most mega-ships. Plus, accommodations are in six basic categories—Suite, Club Class, Mini-Suite, Deluxe Balcony, Balcony and Interior—so booking is fairly straight-forward.

What We Love

The Ship’s Culinary Chops: From something as simple as flavorful soups and stir-fry at Chopsticks Noodle Bar to a multi-course wine-paired dinner at Chef’s Table Lumiere, Majestic Princess offers well-executed culinary options for all tastes and appetites. There are three traditional dining rooms (Symphony, Concerto, and Allegro), but this ship also has six specialty restaurants, including modern French menus in Bistro Sur La Mer by Michelin-starred chef Emmanuel Renaut and a Yao Family Wines Winemaker’s Dinner featuring five courses paired with Napa Valley wines produced by NBA Hall of Famer Yao Ming. And yes, you can enjoy a yummy made-to-order pizza at Alfredo’s at no extra charge.

Al Fresco Bars: When cruising in warmer climates, nothing beats cocktails at an outdoor bar—and Majestic Princess has two terrific ones on its Lido Deck: the SeaView Bar, set over glass panels for daring views of the waves 128 feet below, and the Wake View Bar, located aft and featuring comfy seating to enjoy the sunset or sail away.

Hollywood Pool Club: Even when the weather doesn’t cooperate, passengers can enjoy a swim or a hot tub soak in this glamorous, glass-domed pool area lined with topiaries and featuring a sophisticated and inviting bar.

Best Known For

Movies Under the Stars: Grab some popcorn, claim a chaise and settle in around the Lido Deck Pool to enjoy a night at the movies. This Princess signature offering features everything from recent big-screen releases to classic favorites—and even live sporting events such as World Series and NFL Playoff games.

Chocolate Journeys: Decadent chocolate dessert creations by chef and chocolatier Norman Love are on select menus in the main dining rooms as well as in Crown Grill and the Chef’s Table experience.

Who It's Best For

Families with Creative Tweens and Teens: There’s a focus on discovery and performance onboard Princess’s Royal-Class ships, which make them great for families of tweens and teens interested in science, music, and culture. Princess has partnered with the Discovery Network and Animal Planet to bring adventure learning aboard every cruise. Other family activities include a night of self-expression in a Sing on the Sea karaoke suite or audience participation during a Princess Live! onboard television show (which airs in staterooms). Sports Central also offers basketball courts, a jogging track, and mini golf.

Couples Who Prefer Old-School Cruising: Princess isn’t as cutting-edge as its mega-ship competitors—Crooners, it’s piano bar, has a retro Sinatra-era vibe—so it’s rooted in a more traditional view of cruising that offers relaxation, entertainment, and social engagement.

Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

It’s a Big Ship Without Big Thrills: Sorry, adrenaline junkies—there’s not a single waterslide or zip line aboard this ship (there is a laser shooting range tucked away in Sports Central). And we bet that some of you, who love to relax without a constant soundtrack of screams, may actually find this appealing.
