Contrary to some of the negative reviews we had a very good experience aboard The Majesty. The check in procedure at the port was a bit tiresome with a long queue. Once you got to the desk everything was fine. After identifying cases ... Read more

Our second Thompson cruise, and I am very surprised by some of the reviews, this was not a 5star hotel, but we did not pay for a 5 star hotel. Registration was efficient, cabin was very small but we could have paid for a bigger one, meals ... Read more

The cruise was on average what you would expect. The food, drink, entertainment, and ship was nothing more than what you would expect on a cruise at the expense paid. If this was the worst than I would have marked higher. A few staff ... Read more
