This was our 6th cruise on the Celebration and will probably be our last. It was definitely our worst! On the day of embarkation the weather in Dubrovnik was heavy and constant rain which resulted in most passengers baggage being fairly ... Read more

Worst cruise ever been on. Service was dreadful, if you were lucky enough to find a wine waiter,you had to wait ages for drinks. Gave up on occasions and queued at the bars along with others who had the same idea. One of our party ... Read more

This was our first cruise and possibly our last!! We booked well over 12 months before going because wanted a cabin with a balcony, which paid an extra £600 for. I had read some reviews before going and was a little worried. When ... Read more

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

We chose this cruise as Thomson had always been pretty good. WHAT ON EARTH HAS HAPPENED TO THEM? For a start the food was absolutely abismal. Horrible overcooked vegetables, terrible meat dishes which were sometimes unrecognizable as ... Read more

An old and noisy ship. Very down market. Cheap cruise and that's what you get for sure. Never again. Thomson staff at airport on way back were notable by their absence. Foreign cleaners and others were very helpful, but not highly ... 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

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
