We have been lucky to have sailed on approx 15 previous cruises, including Thomson but sadly the standard of food and service we experienced on the Majesty was very average. To start with a few positives the entertainers on board were ... Read more

Embarked on 20th December 2014.Every aspect of the cruise appeared to be cost cutting. Called at 5 ports and Thomson did not supply one shuttle bus service. Majority of the passengers were elderly and each port was a long walk into the ... Read more

We were really looking forward to a Christmas Cruise around the Canary Islands. Whilst we have cruised on numerous occasions, this has been with P&O and Celebrity and I really didn't think there could be that much difference between ... Read more

Pre-booking cabins 16 months ahead for a 50th anniversary for 4 cabins should be easy to keep. Not on this one. Not only was cabin type changed so was location, to the most forward cabins on board. These we would NEVER have agreed to. No ... Read more
