Majestic Princess Review

Review of Majestic Princess

The 2017-built 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 (2021) and Discovery Princess (2022). From the same class is also the P&O UK ship Britannia (2015).

The vessel (IMO number 9614141) is currently UK-flagged (MMSI 232002990) and registered in Southampton.

History - construction and ownership

Princess Cruises is a USA-based passenger shipping company headquartered in Beverly Hills CA. A former subsidiary of P&O Princess Cruises (1977-founded), in 2003, the company merged with Carnival Corporation - the world's largest cruise shipowner. Among Princess Cruise Lines Ltd's 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 3560-passenger ship Majestic Princess is among the largest liners. 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 Civitavecchia-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).

Majestic Princess has new venues created specifically for China's cruising market.

Decks and Cabins

Majestic Princess staterooms (1780 total, in 38 categories) include 350 Suites, 1088 Balcony and 342 Inside cabins, in 38 categories. The ship has no Oceanview cabins. Most outside accommodations (1438) have private step-out balconies. The ship also has 36 wheelchair-accessible cabins. The largest are the Balcony Suites (470 ft2 / 44 m2 plus 210 ft2 / 20 m2 terrace).

The boat has 18 decks, of which 15 are passenger-accessible and 8 with cabins.

Itineraries

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 ports in Japan and China. Following the Taiwan-based program, the liner returned to Shanghai, and then was deployed in Australia (September 2018 through March 2019).

For winter season 2024-2025, the ship was slated to debut in the Caribbean (14-day roundtrips from Fort Lauderdale Florida USA/Jan-Feb 2025). Prior to the Caribbean deployment (Dec 2024-Jan 2025) were scheduled several voyages around South America - leaving from Los Angeles, visiting ports in Mexico, Panama, Peru, Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil, and ending in Port Everglades/Fort Lauderdale.

Princess Cruises Royal-Class ship design

Majestic Princess' Asian itinerary program (from homeport Shanghai) started on July 11, 2017. In 2018, the liner had scheduled two 14-day "Grand Asia" itineraries between Shanghai and Singapore. Both cruises visit ports in Korea, Japan, Thailand and Vietnam, with longer port times. The first "Grand Asia" cruise departs from Shanghai on February 25, 2018. The 2nd "Grand Asia" voyage leaves from Singapore on March 11, 2018.

Managed by Costa Asia, Majestic Princess passengers of Chinese origin were able to use their Alipay accounts to pay for onboard services and products. The 2017-signed partnership between Carnival Corporation and Ant Financial Services Group (subsidiary of Alibaba/China's biggest online trading company) enables Chinese cruise passengers on all Carnival Corp ships in Asia to use the Alipay mobile payment platform for onboard services and products (shopping, tours/excursions, food, drinks, etc). These expenditures are added to the passenger's cabin folio, then cleared via his/her Alipay account on a nightly basis.

Inaugural itineraries 2017

In October 2015 was officially announced, that the Princess Majestic ship would be deployed in Asia. After its launch in 2017, the ship operated a series of Spring 2017 Mediterranean cruises, then was repositioned from Europe to Asia via Suez Canal. The cruise ship was based in China for year-round roundtrip itineraries from homeport Shanghai, China. During summer the ship operates on roundtrip Australia-New Zealand and South Pacific Islands cruises from homeport Sydney AU, with Australia-Asia relocation cruises.

Majestic Princess cruise itineraries include ports in Japan (Yokohama, Nagasaki, Kobe) and South Korea (Busan) and Hong Kong (China). In January 2017, the vessel successfully completed sea trials off Italy's coast.

The "Inaugural Cruise" (maiden voyage) started on April 4, 2017. The 5-night Adriatic Sea itinerary left out of Venice to Civitavecchia-Rome. The ship operates on 7-, 14-, 21- and 28-night long Mediterranean Sea itineraries departing from the ports of Barcelona Spain, Piraeus (Athens) Greece and Rome Italy, before the relocation to Asia through Suez Canal.

  • April 4 ("Inaugural Cruise") - the 5-day Maiden Voyage is a round-trip out of Rome (port Civitavecchia) visiting Kotor (Montenegro) and Corfu (Greece).
  • The ship's 2017 cruises in Europe (between April 9 and May 14, 2017) were available for booking on December 3, 2015.
  • The other two largest Princess ships Royal and Regal were also deployed in Europe in 2017, respectively, in the Mediterranean Sea (Royal) and Baltic Sea (Regal).

Fun fact is that this Princess ship has a namesake - the 2013-launched "Majestic MAERSK". The vessel is among the world's largest container ships (capacity 18,340 containers) and operated by MAERSK Line.
