Another Good Thomson Experience

Sail Date: July 2014
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Embarkation: Corfu

Having been on the Celebration just two weeks before hand I was looking forward to comparing the two ships and experiences.

We had deck 3 outside superior room, beds had not been arranged as a double, however our friends room had and seeing how this affected space in the room we decided to keep ours separate...blissful nights sleep :)

Standard of cleanliness and room service was very good, lovely two ladies Jessica and Irene looked after us, always had a chat and a laugh with them.

The ship is easier to find your way around than the celebration, but I think I preferred the celebration more, especially after its refurb, I missed the excellent coffee and cake lounge.

Restaurants were very good, although the Seven Sea's one was prone to a lot of vibration when at sea.

For the first time on a cruise we decided to pay for a session in the extra restaurant (Le Bistro on Majesty), £20 a head, oh wow it was absolutely worth it and will do More this every time I cruise from now on.

There are plenty of bars on the ship - TIP if you are on the promenade and don't want to wait for the deck servers, just walk through the SPA on same deck to Flame 52 BAR only discovered this on last two days, always empty and get served very quickly.

Entertainment - caught a couple of shows and the comedian Buster who was also a good singer.

Good standard as usual, however the show lounge is very low especially compared to the Celebration/Spirit, and was a little claustrophobic and of course restricted some of the dance moves.

The Itinery we did was Adriatic Explorer and was very good, Venice, Dubrovnik and Kotor (Montenegro) were the highlights - in Kotor we woke up to find the ship docked in this tiny port surrounded by mountains and you think how the hell did we get here!! (benefit of smaller Thomson vessels?)

Summary

Overall a great cruise, good ship, great food, brilliant staff (although the Philippian's were always very cheerful the eastern European bar servers tended not to be) .

Would be happy to sale on the Majesty again, but the Celebration definitely pips it. Less
