Pharaohs & the Promised Land/Delights of the Promised Lands: Thomson Majesty Cruise Review by Bigbum & Shortarse

Pharaohs & the Promised Land/Delights of the Promised Lands
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Other than the niggles mentioned the good points were exceptionally pleasing. We ate in most of the eateries but not the a la carte. All produced excellent food and the selection was varied, the service was also excellent. Queues could form at the buffet which was double sided, although we only saw one side used at anytime.
Entertainment was varied and plentiful and on a 7 day cruise impossible to sample everything on offer. However, the showtime shows in the Jubilee lounge, which included covers of Queen, Michael Jackson and Moulin Rouge were outstanding, as were Muzzik Unlimited who performed before the main
entertainment every evening.
The shore excursions that we went on were good and well organised and no more expensive than other cruise lines. The bonus with Thomson cruises is that the gratuities are included in the price of the cruise.
Overall the Thomson Majesty is blessed with a great number of cheeful staff and the open plan dining arrangements meant we were able to meet many interesting fellow passengers.
Summing up, we had a lovely cruise marred by the lengthy time it took to cure the problem with the cabin.
Would we cruise with Thomson again? Probably not, our experience of other cruise lines is there are better and cheaper ones available.

Cabin review: 453
Standard outside cabins are the smallest we have seen and this one was the smelliest (453). Some fittings need upgrading.
Rough Relaunch But Got Better
One of the best .
