"Coming from Canada, the Sydney NYE celebration and fireworks was part of our bucket list. Being able to do this and celebrate my wife's birthday on this cruise was the best experience! The Majestic is a beautiful ship, the food was very good, the onboard entertainment was terrific, and the crew were courteous and professional. I could not be happier with this experience. It will be remembered for a very long time and bring a smile to our faces."
