Review summary

Was a lovely 13 night cruise on the Majestic Princess, largest princess ship in the fleet. It was a cruise to New Zealand weather was cold and wet most of the time, still had a few sunny days other than that still had an enjoyable time. The ship was lovely in its self, good entertainment, food and seating.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Cabin was small but cosy and very clean, bed comfortable but high off the ground was a little hard for me to get into. Shower room tiny but practicable good shower. We had a balcony also on starboard side.

Ship tip

Learn the map you are given on the ship. Because it is quite easy to get lost especially if your travelling with a lot of people. And always wash your hands.

Ports of call

Bay Of Islands, New Zealand

Did not get off here weather was not good at all very wet and cold and you had to go ashore by tender boat and it was rough.

Auckland, New Zealand

5 out of 5
Auckland is just like any other big city always plenty to do. We got off ship and got a ferry to Devonport which was lovely had great fish and chips there and the was a good souvenir shop there too and not too dear.

Tauranga, New Zealand

5 out of 5
Love this place so easy to get around, you can do a tour if you like or just a short walk into town, walk around Mt Manganui which takes an hour and a half. The choice is yours.

Wellington, New Zealand

5 out of 5
A lovely sunny day on arrival with a slight breeze.

Akaroa, New Zealand

5 out of 5
Did a tour at Akaroa even though it was very wet and cold. The hills are beautiful with sheep and cows scattered on them. Our tour was to little river a quaint little place with its old buildings.

Port Chalmers (Dunedin), New Zealand

5 out of 5
Port Chalmers is a lovely spot and very interesting with Scottish history. We did not disembark this time as we have been there before.
