I have cruised with Thomson many times before but never on the Majesty, we arrived in Corfu boarded the coach and arrived at check in, the temperature was in the high 30s at midday and the queue was long with only a little shade, to be fair a crew member was keeping us topped up with water but we spent a long time in the sun waiting to check in.

Our cabin on deck 4 (inside)1463 was small to say the least, more like a cupboard, very little space to put anything nothing like the Celebration or Spirit cabins, we did try to get an upgrade but the ship was full, the staff however were very helpful as always. As we (2 Ladies ) were only going to sleep in the cabin we made the best of it, but seems such a shame.

The Cruise itself is amazing fantastic places to visit, the weather was also amazing high30's to40. The dining experience was not up to the usual Thomson experience, the buffet on deck 10 was a real let down we ate in the Four Seasons waiter restaurant, apart from one waiter Leo all the others appeared to be at the start of training, not quite sure what to do or when to do it. The food however was excellent. Our cabin was looked after very well, always clean and a different "towel animal " every day. We also had a bottle of sparkling wine left in our cabin as a thank you for cruising with us again ( I think it may have been more likely because we complained about the cabin size.)

The shows were very good and Paul made a good job as Cruise Director, having seen him work his way up to this position over the years. All in all a great holiday, but something realy needs to be done about the cabin sizes to get me to go on the Majesty again.
