Having reluctantly returned home from Celebration yesterday, my review is: Flights and transfers to/from ship = excellent. As part of his, seamless luggage transfers too after leaving them at Manchester to the ship, and vice versa. Room on ... Read more

Brilliant cruise for a first time cruise! We didn't explore Palma on our first day as we was mainly on the sun deck but wish we would have. Embarking and disembarking the ship was easy every day as it was as simple as finding the gangway ... Read more

We joined the ship at Corfu and due to flight times arrived at about 11.00 pm. All the ship's crew are welcoming, polite and friendly and embarkation was easy. On a sea day get up early, have breakfast and grab a lounger otherwise you ... Read more

First time cruise family consisting of parents and two teens. We wanted to see places we had never seen before so for us it was more about the destinations than the boat. We did the Adriatic Explorer and Hellenic Classic cruises. I have ... Read more

We chose Thomson cruises because we were going on holiday with the family (6 Adults and 3 Children). The price was a big factor in our choice and looking for a cruise that would be more child friendly. My partner & i have been on quite ... Read more

Staff were almost all lovely, especially those that we interacted with often. Good range of bars and evening shows were quality. Pools are small and poolside space limited at peak times, as expected.I didn't enjoy the Lido dining as it ... Read more

Where to begin? We arrived at the terminal in Palma de Majorca to board the ship around 10.30am having started our journey at 2am so we were very very tired. We went to the desk to collect our envelope with the cabin keys which couldn't be ... Read more

Some teething problems I think. We were in a suite so had priory book in, but when we got to the coach for the transfer to the ship, they waited an hour thinking more people were to come, who didn't arrive. Only when everyone got bad ... Read more

This was our first family cruise and we chose Thomson Majesty. Upon arrival we thought the cabins were a bit smaller than preferred, but this isn't a great issue as barely any time is spent in the cabin anyway. In hindsight we would book a ... Read more

With Thomson you can't go wrong - if you want the high class QE2 end of cruising then fine, go with Cunard or whoever but with Thomson you get a very good packaged holiday on a ship. The crew (Eastern Europeans or Eastern Asians) could ... Read more

A ship with no fun. It is a floating 4 star hotel, nothing more. Staff are friendly but have too much to do to socialise. Food was excellent and plenty of it, the choice of food was excellent but if you did not want to share a dinner ... Read more
