The Majestic Princess is very new to the fleet having arrived last year, and she is aimed at the Chinese market and those who wish to explore Asia. Another Royal Class ship, she will look and feel very familiar to lovers of the Britannia, Royal or Regal, but look a little different, a year newer and maybe more grand with its own t’ai chi master. Her ‘movies under the stars’ screen is said to be the biggest at sea. As a Royal Class ship, she carries 3,560 guests, the Britannia experiment with the missing middle staircase has not been included as the stairs are there.
The pool configuration at the top is far more creative and decorative. This ship can be found in the waters of Australia, New Zealand, Asia and the South Pacific and has the Chinese name “Sheng Shì Gong Zhu Hao” on the hull. The name was chosen by Carnival Corporation’s Chinese employees and translates as “Grand World” or “Grand Spirit”.
The World Fresh Marketplace is the free buffet and there is ample free dining, but there are more premium payment restaurants onboard this new ship. It is worth taking a look as this is a ship to dine out in.
