This was our first experience of Thomson (TUI) cruises, but we have cruised with other lines for many years, especially Royal Caribbean, Celebrity, and NCL. The reason for choosing this cruise was that the itinerary looked more ... Read more

May I start by saying that I was caring for a lady with learning disabilities and who was deaf along with my co-worker. We have travelled with her for the last ten years to various destinations but this was the first cruise she had ... Read more

Fabulous 2 weeks on Tui Discovery. Rebooked for January 2017 to the Caribbean. Done many cruises with Thomson but this ship is definitely more upmarket. The only downside was there were not enough bar staff and wine waiters are ... 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

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 sailed on the Discovery from 2nd July to 16th July 2016. This was two cruise itineraries back to back – Mediterranean Secrets and Highlights of the Mediterranean. We booked a deluxe balcony cabin on deck 7 midships and took the ... Read more

Having been on seven cruises with Thomson's this was the first one on the Majesty. As usual the crew were first class, as were the entertainers and guest comedian. We paid extra to be on deck six in a double cabin which was good value for ... Read more

As regular Thomson cruisers we were really looking forward to sailing on the Discovery. The ship is very impressive and our extra inside cabin on deck 7 was really spacious with plenty of hanging and lots of drawers, the only drawback ... Read more

The following opinions are my own, if you want to know how this ship suits you personally, then book a cruise on it. We booked this holiday as we normally sail on larger ships and thought that this re-vamped mid size ship might suit ... Read more

First impression of Tui Discovery is impressive , loving new paint design. Embarkation at Palma a little frantic. We had priority boarding but there was only 2 desks and 1 of them was busy with a passenger who lost their boarding card so ... Read more

The itinerary for Highlights of the Med was the reason for choosing this cruise. We arrived at the port shortly after 2 p.m. and it took around 30 minutes to get to the front of the queue to board the ship. We went to check out the cabin, ... Read more

I have cruised with Thomson many times in the past and decided to try the Discovery as it is new to Thomson. Actually it is not Thomson but the first trial of a new concept with little evidence of Thomson branding. For seasoned Thomson ... Read more

Everybody kept saying that Thomson's had a new cruise ship and that we should try it! I won't ever listen to them again ! What a disappointment! When you spend £5000 you expect a good holiday, at least 4 star. Our cabin was great, ... Read more

Overall very enjoyable cruise with the exception of the restaurant and bars. The island restaurant was very well run with a limited strange variety of choices, not a british menu unless you like bread and butter pudding and pork every ... Read more

This was our first cruise and, I must say, that after reading some of the reviews, I went on this holiday with some trepidation! Why did I listen to the moaners?!!! The Majesty is a delight - coming on a bit, but aren't we all?!! All the ... Read more

Having enjoyed 3 Thomson cruises over the years immensely, we booked with one of the other companies and sailed with them on one of the multi story ships. It was with huge relief that we returned this year to the Thomson family. It did not ... Read more

We had sailed on this ship when she was RCI's "Splendour of the Seas", and it was perfect. We booked a week in the Med on Discovery, knowing that it was only the second week of operation in her new colours, and with fingers ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we have always cruised with thomsons and also the itinerary was one which we wanted. Tui seems to be a bit of a poor relation to Thomson cruises. Although the ship is newer than the other fleet it lacks the ... Read more

I felt I had to redress the balance after reading the other reviews so far. If you are going on this ship look forward to it. We had an excellent holiday. We have only been on one other cruise which was Thomson Celebration which we loved. ... Read more
