Contrary to some of the negative reviews we had a very good experience aboard The Majesty. The check in procedure at the port was a bit tiresome with a long queue. Once you got to the desk everything was fine. After identifying cases ... Read more

Our second Thompson cruise, and I am very surprised by some of the reviews, this was not a 5star hotel, but we did not pay for a 5 star hotel. Registration was efficient, cabin was very small but we could have paid for a bigger one, meals ... Read more

The cruise was on average what you would expect. The food, drink, entertainment, and ship was nothing more than what you would expect on a cruise at the expense paid. If this was the worst than I would have marked higher. A few staff ... Read more

We chose this cruise having travelled once before about 8 years ago on a thomson cruise. We knew the standards (and ceilings) were lower than the larger cruise lines we have been on, but also that the entertainment more than made up for it ... Read more
