Ship Facts: Thomson Majesty Review (by Cruise Critic!)
Thomson Majesty Adriatic Explorer & Pearls of the Aegean
Having read both bad & good reviews regarding Thomson Majesty I decided to have an open mind & draw my own conclusions.

On arrival at the ship it appeared relatively well maintained with regards to its age, externally inevitable corrosion covered in white paint, internally showing signs of use, but was clean. Crew members were on hand to welcome you & show you to your cabin, which made you feel welcome.

Emergency procedures & life jacket instruction was carried out prior to leaving port.

My cabin deck 6 outside plus was twin berth with two single beds & working air conditioning, had plenty space for two people, but was slightly limited for wardrobe space for two weeks, would be OK for one week, there was plenty of drawers which were on the small side. The toilet/shower was small and adequate, no dancing with the shower curtain was required, one big plus was a fridge for keeping your drinks cool. The cabins were cleaned twice a day plus bed turn down in the evening by two house keepers Alla and Sara who did an excellent job keeping the cabin clean & replacing used towels, it was also good to return to your cabin following a night out to find a towel sculpture on your bed and a sweet on your pillow.

The two main restaurants were the Seven Seas and the Four Seasons, both had buffet & waiter service at breakfast, lunch was waiter service in Seven Seas only, evening dinner was waiter service only in both restaurants, the same menu was served in both as they shared the same galley.

The standard of food was good, but was never exceptional, what you normally receive at 3 to 4 star hotel, but was served at a slightly lower temperature than we do here at home, but was never cold other than baked Alaska or ice cream, the menu appears to run in seven day cycles as the second week was the same as the first. I used the Seven Seas for evening dinner on most evenings, going early to miss the busy time from 7.30 on when guests often had to wait to get a table. I kept to the same two waiters Emad and Hady who made each meal a pleasure, and no request was two much bother to please you. A special thanks to them for their attentiveness over the two week cruise.

Other venues for food were the Cafe Royal Buffet which was open 24 hours and had various buffet menus daily which were dependant on what time of day.

The Piazza San Marco Pool Grill open from just before lunch to early evening serving burgers sausages and various other buffet foods.

There was also A Le Ca rte Dining Le Bistro on which I cannot comment as I never used it.

The main entertainment location was the Jubilee Lounge which is only suitable for cabaret acts and small group entertainments, any one looking for west end type entertainment would be sadly disappointed, there is also a lot of support columns in the lounge to restrict a good view of the stage.

The Royal Fireworks Lounge had small stage for small band or singers and a small dance floor, this lounge was also used for bingo and other Butlin type entertainment, but was also used by the resident entertainment band and singers.

The Rendezvous entertainment was pianist who played three spots each evening.

The Royal Observatory entertainment was classical violin & piano music three spot each evening.

Finally the Polo Lounge entertainment was mostly classical music, but was also used by the resident entertainment band and singers.

The alcohol selection was good and prices were reasonable, booking early and getting the free all inclusive is a must if you are a drinker, the full purchase price of £199.00 per week per person is approx 100 drinks at bar prices for house selections.

Over all I felt Thomsons are offering a very good value for money cruise in a not to glitzy setting, with reasonable food and entertainment backed up by excellent crew members who are pleasant, approachable always has a smile, and go out of of their way to make your cruise a memorable happy one.
