Review of Majestic Princess

Launched in 2017, Majestic Princess cruise ship is the 3rd Royal-class vessel in the Princess Cruises fleet, together with the fleet mates Royal Princess (2013), Regal Princess (2014), Sky Princess (2019), Enchanted Princess (2020) and Discovery Princess (2021). One more vessel of the same class will be constructed for Princess, with a scheduled launch in 2022. From the same class is also the P&O UK ship Britannia (2015).

History - construction and ownership

Princess Cruises is a US cruise company headquartered in Beverly Hills CA. A former subsidiary of P&O Princess Cruises (founded 1977), in 2003, the company merged with Carnival Corporation - world's largest passenger shipping company. Among Princess Cruises assets is the Caribbean private island resort Princess Cays (on Bahamas Eleuthera Island's southern end), located approx 80 km (50 mi) from Nassau.

Majestic Princess cruise ship

The 143,000-ton, 3,560-passenger Majestic Princess is among the largest cruise ships sailing the seas. The liner carries the Chinese name - Sheng Shigrave; Gong Zhu Hao on its hull, chosen by Carnival Corporation's Chinese employees. It is translated as “Grand World” (or “Grand Spirit”).

Signature features of sister-ships Regal and Royal include multiple dining venues; cantilevered SkyWalk; multi-story atrium; outdoor cinema Movies Under the Stars; adults-only Sanctuary complex. Tai Chi at sea, ballroom dancing, Chinese satellite TV channels and subtitled Hollywood movies are among the Chinese experiences of “Princess Class”, rolled out to the local cruise market.

Princess Cruises announced on February 8, 2016, on Chinese New Year, that its first cruise ship designed and built specifically for the China market, Majestic Princess (盛世公主号), is also the fleet's first vessel with the company's new livery design.

Also on February 8, 2016, the new ship reached a significant construction milestone when Majestic Princess “floated out” in its building dock at Fincantieri shipyard in Monfalcone, Italy. The ship met the ocean for the first time and the occasion was marked by a traditional ceremony.

Majestic Princess was scheduled for delivery on April 4, 2017, in Rome. The ship (homeported in Shanghai China) offers many of the same special features as Regal Princess and Royal Princess. Among those are a multistory atrium serving as a social hub; a top-deck glass-bottomed over-the-ocean SeaWalk (extending 28ft beyond the ship's edge), Princess Live! (interactive studio), Chef’s Table Lumiere (private dining room).

The 3560-guest Majestic Princess ship has new venues created specifically for China's cruising market.

Cruise itinerary program

Majestic Princess itinerary program was initially based on year-round Asian cruises - from China to Japan and South Korea, with roundtrip departures from homeport Shanghai China. Following the Coronavirus crisis in 2020, for season 2021-2022 Majestic Princess cruises along the US West Coast (California) and Mexico Riviera with 7-day roundtrip itineraries from homeport Los Angeles.

In 2018, the ship had scheduled two 14-day Grand Asia cruises between Shanghai and Singapore. Available to both Chinese and international cruise tourists, these 2018 itineraries visit South Korea, Vietnam, Thailand and Japan, including a late-night visit to Hong Kong. The first cruise departs Shanghai on February 25, the second departs Singapore on March 11.

During season 2018-2019 (September 2018 through March 2019), the ship was homeported in Sydney NSW Australia. This made it the ever-largest Princess vessel to operate on the Australia-New Zealand market. After the Australian deployment, the ship returned to China. During the inaugural Australian season, Majestic Princess had scheduled a total of 16 itineraries to South Pacific Island destinations (Fiji, NZ, Tasmania), plus 2 repositioning cruises - southbound (Shanghai to Sydney) and northbound (Sydney to Hong Kong).

In 2018 (April through July), the ship was homeported in Keelung Taiwan for 3-4-night roundtrips - short-breaks and longer itineraries (to Japan and China). Following the Taiwan-based program, the liner returned to Shanghai, then was deployed in Australia (September 2018 through March 2019).


Most Majestic Princess staterooms are 220-230-sq.foot balcony rooms (1088). All outside staterooms (about 80% of all) have balconies, and many of them appeal to families with kids. There are a total of 1780 staterooms in 38 categories. 36 are the wheelchair accessible rooms. The largest aboard Majestic Princess is the Balcony Suite (440 ft2). The ship has no Oceanview cabins.
