For anyone who cruised this ship for the first time, do not be put off cruising this is nothing like other lines and even Thomson Dream is better for food. The Majesty isn't as old as the Dream 25 years almost; but the organisation of it ... Read more

Ok, so we've been on a couple of cruises before (around the Aegean and Red Sea) and this was our 3rd time on the Celebration (have also been on the Majesty). We know what to expect on a Thomson cruise and we weren't disappointed. Some ... Read more

I believe in looking for the positive otherwise you will have a miserable holiday and what is the point of that. Admittedly we decided early on that we wouldn't be returning to this particular ship as we did not like the design of deck ... Read more

This was our 1st time on a Thomson ship but a Canadian company was offering a package including air, cruise, transfers & no tipping so we decided to try it as the ports were very appealing. We flew into Montego Bay with their ... Read more

JOURNEY: very easy to check in online few days before and then just drop off bags-and not see them again until we got on board the ship-this was great and took away all the stress of travelling -The dream liner is a fab plane and a very ... Read more

After returning for a 7 day cruise on the Thomson Majesty I'm ready for some tasty food. Most of the meals were bland, vegetables were in short supply and there was little variety. The buffet restaurant was far too small and conjested. The ... Read more

I was just reading the comments from other people and felt I must add my thoughts. Yes the Celebration is an old ship but she was spotless and very stable on the Ocean. The staff were excellent and so friendly. The show team were really ... Read more

Pre curise booking was a nightmare - so many errors - had to go into travel shop three times and was still not sorted by the time we left re flights. Seating on aircraft very compact - upgrade if you can but avoid seats right next to the ... Read more

Having read some previous reviews, our expectations were not too high. We chose the cruise because of the itinerary. Have to say, there was very little to find fault with. We had had a week in a hotel in Jamaica first, were picked up ... Read more

My wife and I cruised on Thomson Majesty in January 2013, just after her last refit, and fully enjoyed it. But what a difference now. The Majesty has grown old in such a short time, and in my opinion needs updating and modernising. We ... Read more
