Ship Facts: Thomson Majesty Review (by Cruise Critic!)
Italian Flavours

Okay - The Pro's:-  The ship was very clean. Cabins were cleaned thoroughly, twice a day and the crew were often to be seen washing windows, mopping down decks and painting etc... so no complaints there.

They don't charge a fortune for drinks and even though you're not supposed to bring any booze on board, they are not that 'strict' about it - unlike some of the posher cruise lines which can be a bit anal about the whole 'bringing drinks on board' scenario and treat you like a naughty school child if you are caught!

Everything's fairly laid back - there's only one formal night on a one-week cruise.

Cons:

The entertainment, although fairly good quality, did get a bit a bit 'High de High' at times, especially around the pool deck area, which can get VERY crowded (not enough sunbeds)- with tons of idiots lying around and trying to fry themselves to a crisp!

What is it about some people that think that getting burnt looks good? We built up really good tans just from strolling round the ship AND we didn't burn. There is no need to lie prone in full sunshine for hours on end.

On the subject of sunbeds - people aren't supposed to leave them for more than 45 minutes at a time, but we found that some were staying away for HOURS.

We got fed up and chucked a few towels to the side and managed to 'claim' some sunbeds, as we got fed up with people hogging them all day long! (yes it was US! :)

The ship didn't stay long enough in some of the ports. A lot of excursions were rushed and took place during the hottest part of the day - not good.

We met some lovely people, but as per usual, came across the usual smattering of Cruise Bores - You know the type:

If you do an excursion - they've done a BETTER one!

If you do an excursion - they like to brag about how they 'Did it on their Own'.

Their holiday was better.

Their holiday was cheaper.

They've been on 500 cruises to your 2....

Their children are rocket scientists, doctors and brain surgeons

and so on and so on.

We were lucky and for most of the cruise we struck lucky and ended up on tables with normal people, but there were a few who I could have done without..This is the downside to cruising.

I'm a sociable person, but sometimes I just want a quiet romantic meal with my husband after a long day of sightseeing - Not always possible on a cruise.

Having said ALL THAT ! It's still great to wake up in a different place each morning.
