Never again!

Sail Date: May 2013
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Embarkation: Other

Looked forward to this cruise, had cruised with Thompson before and thought they were pretty good, travelled on the Spirit, Celebration and the Calypso (which they no longer have). All previous cruises had been very good.

Arrived in Corfu, picked up cases, large queue (about 30 minutes waiting) to get onto the couches to take us to the cruise terminal. After we boarded the ship we were shown to our cabin, suitcases outside the door (good). Opened the door and we were aghast, you could not swing a cat in the cabin! We mistakenly thought being on deck eight we would have a decent cabin, all other cruises we have been on, the higher up the ship the better the cabin. Not in this case!

We had asked for a double bed, which we got but it was hard up under the window, you could not walk around the bed, therefore, my husband (who has had two hip replacements) would have to sleep on the outside, I would have to sleep on the inside and climb over him if I needed to go to the More bathroom. There was no storage space for our suitcases, as they would not fit under the bed, one wardrobe with limited hanging space, and very few drawers for clothing, as the safe took up space in the unit. The bathroom had nowhere to put your toiletries and the grout in the shower area was mouldy!

The 24 hour cafe (you couldn't call it a restaurant) was cramped not enough tables and chairs, the food was horrible cold or lukewarm. Don't eat there!

The four seasons and the seven seas restaurants were very nice, waiters were very good in fact most of the staff on board were friendly and hard working, this was the saving grace for Thomson Cruises.

On disembarking at Corfu at 09:00 hrs we arrived at the airport at 09:20 we then queued for three and half hours, total chaos would be an understatement, Thompson had been paid for the holiday and no longer cared about the customer.

The overall cost of this cruise compared to more upmarket cruise lines was expensive would not travel on this ship again or from Corfu airport Less

Cabin review: Thomson Majesty 867

Cabin number 867 - We had asked for a double bed, which we got but it was hard up under the window, you could not walk around the bed, therefore, my husband (who has had two hip replacements) would have to sleep on the outside, I would have to sleep on the inside and climb over him if I needed to go to the bathroom. There was no storage space for our suitcases, as they would not fit under the bed, one wardrobe with limited hanging space, and very few drawers for clothing, as the safe took up space in the unit. The bathroom had nowhere to put your toiletries and the grout in the shower area was mouldy!
