What to expect during your cruise?
What to Expect...
First off, you can expect to have a great time as you travel along the Intracoastal Waterway!
The Intracoastal Waterway is protected from the elements, so your ride will be smooth and comfortable, even on a breezy day.
Board the MAJESTIC PRINCESS after checking in with the crew member at the gangway. Once on board, you’ll have time to explore the MAJESTIC PRINCESS prior to departure and take advantage of our fully stocked service bar.
You may sit outside on the spacious sundeck and enjoy a relaxing drink, or retreat to the climate-controlled lower level for a spectacular meal.
What to Bring...
Bring a light jacket or sweater, as it can sometimes be cooler on the water than on land. Wear comfortable shoes, as you will be exploring the boat thoroughly during your cruise.
The sun is usually more intense on the water than on land, so be sure to include sunscreen, sunglasses and a hat.
You’ll want to remember every minute of your adventure, so remember to bring a camera to capture images of Florida as well as the million-dollar homes and yachts along the way.

Can I make reservations by phone and pay at the ship?
I do not have a credit card. Can I make a reservation?

Where or how do we pick up our tickets?
No tickets will be issued or sent unless you've purchased public cruise tickets on Zerve.
Upon arrival at the MAJESTIC PRINCESS, introduce yourself to our crew member and provide your photo ID - or if you got your tickets on Zerve you may present those.
If my party is unable to make it or we miss the ship,
will we receive a refund?
We are sorry, but all unused tickets are non-refundable.
Do I pay gratuity or is it included in the ticket price?
Gratuity is not included in the price of admission. Our onboard wait staff are paid the typical minimum restaurant wages. Therefore, a gratuity of 15 – 20% is customary for services rendered.
Is there a sharing charge if I purchase only one entrée and share it with someone?
Yes, a $5 sharing charge will be added to your bill if two people share one entrée.
Is there an automatic gratuity charge added to the check?

Is the MAJESTIC PRINCESS handicap accessible?

What should I wear?
For evening cruises, appropriate attire is casual to dressy. Men traditionally wear sport shirts, slacks and sport coats, with or without ties. Women wear dresses or nice pants. We do not recommend T-shirts, jeans, shorts, or sneakers in the evening. Afternoon cruises are more relaxed, so casual attire is fine.
Will I get seasick?
In an emergency, could someone reach me while the ship is
away from the dock?
Yes, cell phones will work while we are sailing. If you do not have a cell phone you can be reached onboard by calling (561) 254-0424 for emergencies only.
