Review summary

 

We loved this new ship and is design. The ports of call were great and the tour guides were knowledgeable. Our main dining room and waiters were the best of our previous 13 cruises.

 

Our only problem was that our United cruise agent was provided false information by Princess cruises sales and we then ended up with a 293 person lifeboat with a two foot tower for the crew driver to see out of directly in front of our balcony door. This was a total shock and totally unacceptable. Majestic Princess guest services didn't seem to care as it was a princess cruises sales problem. No alternative room became available during this 28 day cruise even thou many individuals got off at the different port visited and Princess cruises did not even have the courtesy to advise us that they were sorry that nothing became available. Although this cruise now gives us Platinum states I am not sure we can feel comfortable using Princess again.

Our room attendant and main dining room waiters were some of the best with continued outstanding service. Because of our room problem I was totally unhappy with the ship's guest services in resolving the problem even though it was Princess sales that provided false and misleading information to our travel agent.

Our United cruise agent was provided false and mis-leading information by Princess cruises sales when we booked our cruise and we then ended up with a 293 person lifeboat with a two foot tower for the crew driver to see out of directly in front of our balcony door. This was a total shock and totally unacceptable. Majestic Princess guest services didn't seem to care as it was a princess cruises sales problem. No alternative room became available during this 28 day cruise even thou many individuals got off at the different port visited and Princess cruises did not even have the courtesy to advise us that they were sorry that nothing became available. Although this cruise now gives us Platinum states I am not sure we can feel comfortable using Princess again even though we loved this ship, food and most all employees except customer services because of their attitude even though the fault was Princess cruises sales since this was a new ship and they apparently didn't have all the necessary information on room schematics and necessary visas. Our cabin attendant was outstanding and always available.

Ship tip

This is a new ship and apparently Princess cruise sales were not aware of changes in room schematics which were not yet on line. Also Princess did not tell us until a few weeks before the cruise we needed a visa for India.
