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

We were initially worried about going on this cruise ship after so many negative reviews. We need not have worried. All the staff all around the ship were very good, helpful and cheerful. The inside cabin that we had was absolutely ... Read more

This was our 4th Thomson Cruise and I would agree with other reviewers that this new ship is not as good as Majesty or Dream yet, but once the initial teething problems are sorted and the inexperienced members of staff get up to speed it ... Read more

Well what a disappointment after all the hype and marketing, this was our first cruise and in some aspects it was a nice experience, however a lot of things were not right and they were unable to rectify the problems whilst at sea which we ... Read more

Overall this cruise war everything I expected on a Thomson Cruise. Good food, excellent entertainment and very friendly staff. One of the drawbacks was the machinery noise as we were entering port. I was in a single inside cabin on deck 3 ... Read more

This was our second cruise within a month, the first being on P and O Azura, so it was hard not to make comparisons, with the caveat that they were different type of cruise on different size ships. The flight out from Bristol was fine ... Read more

What a great cruise, 5 star staff , all willing to help. As has been said by many before this is not a new ship, but it does have character. We stayed in 924, the so called NOISY ROOM, never heard a thing. Extremely clean and clean towels ... Read more

My wife and I joined the ship at Palma de Majorca . To start with the long lines of guests waiting to be let on board was frustrating ( it was must simpler on Royal Caribbean) when we arrived on board we found that our cabin on deck 9 ... Read more

This was our 4th cruise with Thomson, all on different ships. But this Thomson Dream cruise was both excellent and horrible. We would never sail with this ship again, and we are having serious second thoughts about cruising with Thomson ... Read more

The Thompson Dream cruise liner is a very dated vessel and will be taken out of the fleet next year not before time. They seemed to be more paint than steel in the structure of the ship, but it was adequate for what we needed we had two ... Read more

This ship needs scrapping. It was our first cruise and honestly it has probably put us off for life. The ship is tired to the point that even a complete overhaul would be too expensive to save it. Our cabin was possibly (from what we heard ... Read more
