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

We only booked a week as this was our first cruise - it certainly won't be our last! We had a suite on deck 8. From the check in at the airport to our return, the Thomson efficiency couldn't be faulted and was totally stress free! ... Read more

Just got back from a 2 week cruise on Thomson Majesty, our second this year. I really do find it hard to believe that people are shocked to find out that the ship is quite old and that the cabins are quite small. Surely when reading the ... Read more

The Majesty cruise ship was the biggest let down to me. I have been on the Spirit and the Celebration which were both fabulous. The crew in general seemed to be an unhappy lot. Some were pleasant but some just couldn't be bothered. The ... Read more
