I travelled around Italy , for my 60th birthday on 12th of October 2015, on the Majesty cruise ship, with 4 friends, what a birthday holiday I had, its my first crusie & hopefully not my last.1 complaint & its not the captains fault , the weather it was not on our side am afraid. Other than that we had a fanfastic time, nothing was to much trouble all staff was so friendly , our cabin crew who I must give a mention was Tatiani & Esti, was just lovey girls , I woke up on my birthday to find a lovely message on our door asking me to have a lovely birthday & balloons were on my door, it made me feel so special.we had our evening meals in the restaurant with all staff very friendly , they always made us feel welcome & asked us how our day was, food was excellent , many nights the waiters would sing &get everyone singing along .The shows on a evenings are a must all dance troupe were fabulous singers & dancers & got everyone involved with singing & clapping.. My birthday night was in the bistro which we paid £19.99 pp , the food was lovely & staff just a lovely, at the end of my meal a waiter came with a birthday cake & another waiter played a guitar & had everyone sing happy birthday to me..one very happy lady. We didn't like being bombard with photographer, s all the time & it cost a fortune to buy them although we did get some as I want to have them as a momentum. Sadly the weather wasn't on our side & saw very little sun, Venice was just wonderfull & hope to go back. Ive read a review from someone whos been on the same cruise ( same time as us) & mentioned that there was loud music & could be heard in the cabin I can honestly say we never heard a thing.. Hats off to all the crew for making our holiday a very happy one.. keep up the good work & hope to see you all soon... Read Less

We have just returned after a fantastic cruise on the Thomson Majrsty. We chose the Hellenic cruise with ports of call including Mykonos, Athens and Crete. We were very apprehensive after reading less than glowing reviews of the Majesty. We need not have worried, yes the ship is a little tired and the cabin basic, BUT it was more than adequate for our needs. We did not book a cruise to spend all our time in the cabin. Our cabin stewards Kristina and Jamie looked after us and kept the cabin spik and span. We ate in the seven seas restaurant where the food and service were very good. We chose to share different tables each night and as a result met some fantastic people . I recommend doing this as made for an enjoyable and often hilarious dining experience . Special praise is reserved for the team of Stacy, Sarah and Adam in the Royal Fireworks lounge, the quizes and game shows made for a highly entertaining week, anybody who saw Mr and Mrs or the sports challenge will know what I'm talking about!!! The team here really made our cruise. We chose not to book any excursions as we like to do our own thing. I really enjoyed all the ports of call, except Kusadsi,Turkey. The constant hassle in the bazaars was off putting and made me feel uncomfortable . Mykonos and Chania, Crete are really pretty and Athens is really worth a visit. Don't let the negative reviews put you off,it's not 5* luxury but does have a wonderful team of staff who can't do enough for you and are incredibly welcoming . Read Less

Myself and my Husband (52 & 58yrs) have just returned from an amazing Cruise around the Greek Islands and Turkey. This is the first time we have cruised and couldn't have chosen a better cruise ship to start us off. The start was not too good as we arrived 3 and a half hours late due to the plane being delayed and this meant that we arrived after the ship was supposed to depart. We were disappointed that Thomsons did not give any information about what would happen regarding this and did not tell us that the Ship would wait for us. On arrival at the airport the travel to the ship was seamless, we were met by a rep who tagged our cases and gave us our cabin and boarding passes, we loaded our cases onto the coach and the next time we saw them they were outside our cabin. Yes the ship was a little tired in places but there was everything we needed on board. We were in an outside cabin on deck 3, the cabin was adequate, it had tea making facilities a small shower, hairdryer and a TV with limited channels - but who watches TV on a cruise?. Helen our cabin stewardess was great, really friendly and did an excellent job. The food was amazing, we dined mainly in the seven seas restaurant in the evening but also used the Piazzo San Marco buffet for breakfast and afternoon tea. We did 1 excursion to Ancient Delos from Mykonos and to be honest we wouldn't do organised excursions again. It was very nice but we could have done the same trip on our own for half of the price. There were 2 ports which were disappointing these were Athens and Kalamata. The Acropolis was great in Athens but apart from that there was not much to do. We got the yellow tour bus from outside the port a couple of minutes walk. With a bit of a haggle we got this for 15 Euros, this took us to the Acropolis, about 25min drive and then following this we re-boarded the bus for a tour of Athens this took about 2 hrs due to heavy traffic, so give plenty of time for this. Kusadasi is great for Genuine Fake goods but be ready for haggling and don't be pressurised into buying from the first shop you go into. The entertainment that was put on surprised us,we went to most of the shows in the Jubilee lounge and they were really professional, from a Queen tribute show to songs by Lloyd Webber and Rice. There was also a guest UK comedian act which was hilarious. The entertainments director was great and made sure everyone knew what was going on, on a daily basis. We also frequented the Piano bar in the Royal Observatory. We didn't buy the drinks package but when on board we did buy a wine package for £72, which was well worth it, you would have to go some to drink £400 worth of drinks between 2 people in a week. Our total bill for drinks including the wine package was £120 and we didn't go without. On the last day we paid for a cabin for the day as we weren't leaving until 18.15pm, this was well worth the £35. The trip from the Ship to the airport was again seamless and we were only let down once again by the airline as we were delayed on the way back as well. All in all a brilliant cruise with a 5 star service, nothing was too much trouble for the staff and we will certainly be cruising again with Thomsons Read Less

This was our 3rd cruise having previously been on Island Escape and Thomson Celebration. We booked this Hellenic Cruise as we were particularly interested in the ports it visited. Mykonos - me being a mad Shirley Valentine fan, Kusadasi in Turkey, Athens, Chania in Crete and more. Check in - transfer to the ship everything was efficiently operated as always. Plus our bags arrived at our cabin before we even got there - brillinat. We were on the lower deck 2/3 and even though small (like a caravan bedroom) it was just big enough for the 2 of us to manage. Lovely to have a kettle and coffee etc provided. We had a slight problem with the bathroom facilities - but it was dealt with instantly it was reported. Big big shout out to the best cabin steward ever - El Sayed. Such a lovely guy who truly takes pride in his job and goes out of his way to make your stay enjoyable. The food on board was first class in all restaurants - but we must point out that the best meal we have ever been served anywhere in the world was in La Bistro - highly recommended and well worth the small additional fee. Personally we were very disappointed with the entertainmt in the main Jubilee Lounge - more so due to the extremely poor sound system which was awful. Also felt considering it is the larger entertainment room - there was little or no atmosphere. We loved the entertainment in the Firework Lounge - more fun, seeing people enjoying themselves, good music etc. Also the young guy on the piano was exceptional on the upper deck Already looking at returning next year but would love to be on the deck where Sayed is for sure.

On reading some of the bad reviews about the Thomson Majesty, I was very worried that I had made a mistake in booking this cruise. We arrived at Corfu Airport mid morning and the transfer to the ship was very quick. On boarding I couldn't have been more surprised to see a spotlessly Clean ship, maybe not the most modern and she is showing some signs of wear but she has a charm of her own. Our cabin on deck 4 was spacious, had comfortable beds and good storage. For the first time we had an inside plus cabin and the only drawback was not knowing what time of day it was. Peter and Dewi our Cabin Stewards did a very good job in looking after the cabin and couldn't be faulted. The excellent staff in the Seven Seas Restaurant especially Geny and Ricky our Waiters and Anthony the wine Waiter looked after us well and made certain we had a table for two the whole week. Food on the whole was very good. We did opt for Fillet Steak on a couple of occasions and paid a supplement. The Entertainment Team were the best we have seen. All shows were excellent with lovely costumes. Singing and Dancing was to a very high standard and the "Africa" show was outstanding. We only did 2 excursions with Thomson - Unknown Walking Tour of Venice and Durres City Tour. Was very disappointed with the Venice Tour. We arrived in Venice in thick fog and was an hour late in leaving the ship for the tour. It was very rushed and some people (including ourselves) found it very difficult to keep up with the guide. It should have been a four hour trip but we were back on the Ship in just over 3 and a quarter hours.We did complain to Thomson and were pleased to get a part refund. The other ports - Ravenna, Rijeka and Dubrovnik we did by ourselves. Rijeka and Dubrovnik were our favourites. We didn't use the Sun Deck as it was too busy. We preferred the promenade deck to sunbathe but as other reviewers have stated some sun loungers had towels left on them for hours at a time without anyone using them. We had a very enjoyable time and found every member of staff polite and very friendly. I will say that we did meet a couple who had a cabin on Deck 8 and had a drain and toilet problem and were not happy with the Cruise at all. We would certainly Cruise again on the Majesty and would recommend to our friends and family. Read Less

Second time on the majesty, 4th time on a thomson cruise. Staff are extremely friendly - some even remembering us from different boats. Special mentions to JD, Alvin, Gabriel and Alfred - great members of the Thomson Majesty team. Most of the ports were very good destinations apart from a few where there was not much to do - my favourite was Venice, even though it was my 3rd time visiting there. Also Ladies beach in Kusadasi is amazing too. Didn't go on any excursions as they were quite dear and would rather do my own thing. I was on deck 4 in the middle, it was a decent sized cabin (just big enough for the 3 of us) however I feel as if the ladder for the bunkbed was extremely unstable. Good housekeeping. The gym was tiny and not well equipped - was quite disappointed with it as I take my fitness seriously. Entertainment was good however I believe the show team could be much better - many singers were pitchy and at times hard to understand. Always looked forward to the nights onboard as Frame 52 is an excellent place to have a dance and meet new people, especially for the teenagers/ young adults. Drinks package was well worth it as we were constantly being offered drinks and refills, as I said all the staff was extremely friendly. I did find the Seven Seas restaurant to be understaffed, causing a lot of pressure on the waiters so Thomson really need to hire more people as I spent most of my dinners feeling sorry for the waiters who were extremely overworked. Food was decent and plentiful - large portions in the restaurants. Whilst the ship is outdated and at times shabby, if you look past the decor then you really will have a fantastic time. Read Less

First cruise, absolutely loved it. Yes, we had no benchmark but given some of the nitpicking on some of these reviews we found hardly anything to complain about. The ship looks immaculate, regularly cleaned inside and out and by God don't housekeeping do a great job with the cabins and common areas, all with a smile on their faces and a cheery hello every time. We were on deck 4 and were pleasantly surprised at the size of the outside plus cabin which was certainly big enough for two and had loads of storage for a two week cruise. Yes the bathroom is a little pokey but is absolutely fine and fit for purpose, unless perhaps you are 18 stone plus. We only ate dinner in the Seven Seas. So enjoyable was the whole experience every time we dined there - brilliant waiters and wine waiters - there was absolutely no need to go anywhere else. Not only is their service first class but their memories are wonderful which adds that extra something else in terms of the whole experience. Listen carefully to Maitre d' Leroy Brown, the formidable, yet lovable Jamaican, he always refers to dining in the Seven Seas as a dining "experience". And it is. The Spice Boys singing during dinner was something to behold. Wonderful entertainment. The breakfast buffets on deck 10 were both excellent. I didn't note any evidence of cold foot (unless it was meant to be of course!), and the choice impressive. The egg/omelette stand was excellent and popular. Swimming pools were OK, not big and if I had a gripe it would be the frequent appearance in the adult pool of small children with arm bands on in there creating havoc. Disappointingly no officer on board seemed to take issue with the parents on many of the occasions I saw them wander by and take no action. Of course there were also the usual crowd of folk disappearing from their sunbeds for hours on end with a towel reserving their place. Ports of call were the main reason for this cruise - all excellent, bar Crotone which was a bit of an odd one, I would particularly highlight Dubrovnik's Old Town walls and the cable car. Split is lovely, of course Rome & Venice are fantastic. Trapani and the hill top town of Erice were a pleasant surprise. All in all it couldn't really be faulted - the entertainment was good, food plentiful and readily available. In summary, a great holiday and very pleased with everything the Majesty had to offer.

I have just returned from this cruise with my parents and 2 younger brothers and just wanted to write a review to describe how absolutely brilliant it was!!! I read a lot of negative reviews before going and it worried me a lot as my whole family were so excited and this was our first cruise. Corfu is a lovely place and the flight there/check in to the cruise was all very smooth and pleasant. Our bags were waiting for us at our cabin doors and our cabin, an outside plus on deck 3, was a lovely room. I'd definitely recommend getting a plus cabin as the regular ones are quite small (my dad and brother had this) but they are still workable. Deck 3 was nice and quiet and out the way but still just a short lift ride to all the bars/restaurants. The food and drinks were absolutely amazing all week and we couldn't stop eating and drinking! We've had some bad experiences with all inclusives in the past but this was far superior. For breakfast we used the buffets and egg/pancake station and the buffet again for lunch which was all fresh and very tasty. We dined in both of the waiter service restaurants on an evening and the food and waiters were excellent, the little show in the seven seas that the waiters perform is worth a watch!! The cocktails are all really nice as is this lager. We had the drinks package and found this good value for how much we drank! My youngest brother went to the kids club everyday 3-4.30 and 7-9 which gave us a nice break and he absolutely loved it, they kept the kids thoroughly entertained. Aside from this he played constantly in the pool which was very safe and there was lots of children to play with. All the staff are so lovely and friendly, the cleaners are so attentive and see to the rooms twice a day. Everyone was always smiley and friendly! The entertainment team are brilliant and keep you entertained all day long with quizzes, games, shows ect. The only 1 complaint we could make, as minor as it is, was selfish people claiming sun beds and going offshore!!! This was very annoying, sometimes we watched sun beds left unattended for up to 4 hours!!! But this happens in every single resort and we still managed to get a seat near the pool everyday! We didn't do any of the excursions off shore, we had a walk around some places but we enjoyed the boat too much and didn't want to leave, this was more of a relaxing holiday for us. As for cruising, this was an amazing first cruise and we could all barely fault it!!! We will definitely be returning. Majority of the negative reviews are people used to a more formal affair which we wouldn't have enjoyed!! So take no notice and go with an open mind because this is an amazing holiday :) Read Less

We traveled on the Thomson Majesty 17th-24th July 2015, on the itinerary ‘Adriatic Charms’. Firstly I must point out, this review is long, however especially useful for anyone matching my criteria of being a first time cruiser, with an 8 month old baby, who gets travel sick (not on here!) and also vegetarian! For a long time I was put off cruising because of worries of sea sickness (I have travel sickness), viruses, and other scare stories. However my wife persuaded me to eventually go ahead and try, so we did. We are a young-ish couple (early thirties/late twenties) and also had an 8 month old baby, which we thought would be an issue (but wasn’t). Instead of splashing out thousands of pounds on a fancy cruise (no offense to Thomson) we thought we would try this one because of the worst case scenario I would be sick and not enjoy it. After a week on board, I never felt ill at all, and couldn’t feel the ship moving unless outside, where you could just about feel it at times (even though very gentle). We arrived at Corfu airport and promptly met by Thomson reps who gave us some initial info on our cruise along with the keys for our cabin, and luggage tags for our bags. The bags and cases were then put on our coach, where we then drove to the ship (about 15 mins drive only). Thankfully during our stay, I had asked Thomson to help reserve front seats on the coaches we would take (as we planned to take trips every day of our cruise), and this was done on all but one of the trips which was very good, as sitting near the front helps prevent me feeling ill. Anyway, once we arrived at the cruise terminal, everything continued smoothly, and once through security you go through a small duty free area where we stocked up on very cheap drinking water, knowing that once on board bottled water would be expensive. We bought a big pack of six 2 litre bottles for about 2 Euros! Bargain, so I recommend you do this especially if you have a fridge in your cabin. By the way, we booked an Outside Plus room which was much bigger than I thought (726). We arrived at our cabin to find out luggage was already there for us, and a cot in the room for our baby that we requested (although when I rang to book this, they had automatically done this because they knew we were booking a baby too – which was no extra cost). We had previously read reviews that there was issues with ‘fumes’ in this room, but we never had a problem. The ship itself is great, and I cannot understand why a lot of people complain about the condition etc of it, because we found no issues really at all. I can only suggest there are some very very picky people who may well be used to spending big money on the more ‘posh’ ships! I myself am far from a snob, but even I have stayed in 5 star hotels and resorts in the past, and cannot complain at all about this ship especially with the cost you’re paying. Anyway then, our cabin was a reasonable size as I said, and the window was much bigger than I thought it would be too, and this one didn’t have a restricted view which was great - just have to accept that on deck 7 there are people walking around a lot, but they can’t see into the room as long as you don’t turn the light on as they are darkened windows. We had a fridge as well as tea/coffee facilities which I understand are not included in some of the other cabins, so you need to check that. The beds were 2 singles, but someone quickly adapted them into a double for us which was great. Yes the bathroom is small, but adequate for most people I’m sure. Was a little tricky to give our baby a shower, but it worked out okay for us. I am a vegetarian, and can find this a problem at a lot of hotels and resorts, but there was an abundance of food suitable for me at all the restaurants and snack bars, and never found food to be cold as some have suggested. In fact the food was constantly being replaced with new hot supplies. Absolutely loads of food for all meals. Since we were travelling with a baby, we didn’t do anything in the evenings such as entertainment etc, so I cannot comment on this at all. Our entertainment was spent trying to get our baby to sleep!! As I mentioned earlier, we took trips every day we were at port (6 out of 7 days as one was spent at sea). I will go into some details now on each trip in case you are planning any. Now I know some of the trips may seem expensive, but it’s a real shame I think when you go on a cruise visiting all these countries and you just stay on the ship, as many people seem to do. I thoroughly recommend you taking trips, or at the very least explore some of the ports on your own (some easier than others). Port 1 - Italy, Ravenna – we actually took the exciting chance to visit an extra country whilst at this port, we did the trip to San Marino! It’s a 1hr30 coach trip to get there, but well worth it. The views from this small country (mostly situated on a mountain!) are amazing, and a very interesting culture all of their own. Lots of interesting things to see here, with plenty of small cute shops and restaurants too. You only spend about 2 hours here, because of the time it takes to get there and back, however this is enough time really as you get an hour or so with a guide, followed by some free time to explore. Port 2 – Italy,Venice – there isn’t much to say about Venice, you kind of get what you get expect here. However we found it slightly disappointing due to so many tourists (it was height of summer I know) packing the streets. Also we didn’t realise that since there are so many bridges connecting all the small ‘islands’, we spent what seemed like hours in the heat lifting our buggy up and down bridges as they are all steps with no ramps. Not an issue for most people, however expect to do a lot of walking here. We took the ‘full day with gondola’ trip, but we found it slightly disappointing that the time spent on the gondola was only about 20 mins! But anyway, it was worth the experience. You arrive in Venice via a boat which you board directly from the cruise ship, and you return to the ship the same way. You can also walk from the ship, but it’s a long walk into the centre I understand (30-45 mins I think). Port 3 – Croatia,Rijeka – one of our favourite places here. We did the trip ‘Opatija & Kastav’, which takes you to 2 places. This was a great trip, starting in Opatija which is a beach resort area, with really nice water and scenery, you get a small guided tour and then some free time. Then on to the next stop Kastav which is up a hill (small mountain even), this place there are great views of Opatija and other country side around. Again a small tour here followed by some free time. We really liked this trip, seeing 2 places with the whole trip being only 4 hours. It then allowed us to have some time in Rijeka too. Please note, since Croatia isn’t part of the EU, Euros are not widely used, but it’s easy enough to take local currency out from cash machines. We found Croatia as a whole to be very cheap, so you do not need to take loads of money. For example, a large ice cream cone was about 70 pence! Port 4 – Croatia,Dubrovnik – again lovely part of Croatia, full of history. We did the ‘City Walk & Cable Car’ trip. A short drive to the starting point, which is the base of the cable car station. There was a long queue here in heat of about 37 degrees which wasn’t great especially with a baby (but we managed in shade). Once at the top of the mountain, there are fantastic views of the old city below, especially if you go on a clear day. There is small shop and big restaurant up here, though you don’t get a lot of time up there. When you go down again, you have a small walking tour of the old town, followed by an hour or so of free time to explore the old town. There is plenty to see here, and lots of shops and restaurants. Really lovely place. Port 5 – Albania,Durres – perhaps an odd stop, however it’s a good chance to see what is really a developing country still. If you’re aware of the troubles here in the past, it’s good to see how things are rebuilding. We didn’t spend any time in Durres itself, as we did the ‘Historical Albania’ trip which takes you to both Kruja (a very old town up in the mountains) and the capital itself, Tirana. Kruja was very interesting, and again great views from up high. Once finished here, you go on to Tirana which was a little disappointing due to the disorganisation of tour guide, so it was all a bit rushed as you go round a museum. We then had lunch (included) which was quite nice, but I don’t think Albania is a great place for vegetarians (potatoes and vegetables I was given!). Be careful when you’re offered a drink though at the restaurant! We assumed it was included, but at the end we were given a bill! I think it’s a shame really we were not informed of this before we were offered a drink. We asked for any dietary needs near the start of the tour, so they ring the restaurant ahead of time to organise this, but if you don’t get asked you should ask early just in case). Still, it was a good opportunity to various parts of Albania. Again Albania doesn’t highly accept Euros, so you can take cash out of cash machines. Again quite cheap here, so you don’t need much cash anyway, only for souvenirs and drinks. Port 6 – Corfu – we arrived back where we started, after a great cruise. We found out during the cruise that once we arrive at Corfu we would need to vacate rooms by about 9.30. This was much earlier than we thought, especially when we had a baby and that we were not due to leave for the airport until 12.45. We were told that it would be possible to hire a cabin for a few hours though. Given the choice of that, or the chance to do one more trip (Bella Vista), we chose the latter since being told we would have enough time to do the 4 hour trip (8.30-12.30). Knowing we didn’t have much time, and the assurance we were given that we would be back in time, we did this. Just to mention, prior to this, you have to pack all your luggage and leave outside your cabin by midnight the previous night (i.e. Thursday night, 12am Friday). This means you need to have everything you need for the next day. You can access your luggage though in an area outside the cruise ship if needed before leaving for the airport. Anyway, so back to our trip, the Bella Vista trip was again great with fantastic views and an additional boat ride into some caves which was okay (and only about 8 euros each I think). You visit 2 other places on this short trip, however on the way back we realised how close we were to missing our deadline. When I asked the tour guide if we will be back by 12.45 she told me unlikely! I then began to worry as I explained we are supposed to leave on our coach at that time. Luckily she called ahead, and Thomson confirmed that they wouldn’t leave before we got there, and besides the coach was running late anyway. We were not that late back in the end, but felt a little rushed to get off one coach, collect our luggage, and get on to another coach. It was only 10 mins late, but felt more. We then took the 15 min drive back to the airport and continued on home. The airport though is quite small, only a few shops and small place to get food, was also quite hot there especially as it was packed. Anyway can’t help the airport. Overall then, great holiday, and would highly recommend the Thomson Majesty, and can definitely recommend this particular itinerary. It’s funny how I went from worrying about cruises, to now wanting to cruise again ASAP! The ‘cruise bug’ is real ! Read Less

After traveling onboard the Island Escape ship in 2014, I had a good understanding of what made a good cruise. I can tell you right off the bat; the Thomson Majesty excels on every level. We embarked the ship on the 17th of July 2015 to do the Adriatic Charms route around the Mediterranean, which consisted of going to Greece, Italy, Croatia and Albania. My first impression of the ship was a relatively good one. The exterior of the ship is very athstetically pleasing, featuring an all white paint job with splashes of red and blue on the main funnel. We entered ship via the gangway to a very well presented floor considering it was only the second deck. The 3 main stairwells (Forward, Middle and Aft) run right through the ships 9 accessible decks, the exemptions being the 1st and 11th deck (11th is accessible using the side stairs) as do the elevators. Our cabin was located on the Biscayne Deck (Deck 4) and was a major step upwards in comparison to the Island Escape's more tight and crammed cabins. The cabin gave us enough room for the 3 of us to move around without bumping into each other thanks to the single beds on each side with bunks on top. There was plenty of lighting which was needed as we opted out of a window cabin and also holstered your basic toilet facilities. The only downside to the cabin was the TV and lack of plug sockets in the room. The TV's signal seemed to be shakey when at sea (which was expected) but was not much different when docked and the ports. However, it is bearable with a bit of patience. From what we saw, there was only 1 plug socket to be found (which can be used using a English to European adapter) and was frustrating when trying to charge multiple devices. You can find the main Reception on the Atlantic Deck (Deck 5) which has helpful staff that can offer assistance when needed as it is open for 24 hour service. You can also find 3 restaurants in this deck: The Seven Seas, The smaller, but by no means worse Four Seasons And the A La Carte, Le Bistro. (£19.95 per-person) The food in the ship is brilliant. A different menu for each day and a kids menu for the younger ones. The service is exceptional from all the staff working in the restaurants and they have their talents outside of the kitchen too! Deck 5 also has the Rendezvous bar (coolest place on the ship by far), coffee bar, games room, shopping facilities and the Secondary Entertainment area: Royal Fireworks, which hosts trivia, bingo and karaoke nights. The main entertainment area is found one deck up on the Majesty Deck (Deck 6) and is called the Jubilee Lounge. The entertainment team perform a different show every night with the exception of 1 where a special guest takes the stage. The resident band 'Muzzik Unlimited' perform nightly before the shows and also after in my favourite bar, the 'Polo Club'. Be sure to say Hi to Muji and Stacey from me if you see them around! Live entertainment from bands can be seen here and is a great place to capture good photos from the windows. Directly off from the Polo Club is the 'Monte Carlo Casino' where you can access the many slot and poker tables it has to offer. If you are looking to lie in the heat but not catch the sun, the Promenade Deck (Deck 7) is the place to be. Sunbeds can be acquired from the deck to chill out and relax without being caught in the sun. The disco 'Frame 52' can be found here too, with live DJ's on every night whom take requests from the guests. Deck 8 & 9 (Viking & Norway) are mainly reserved for Cabins, but an Observatory and kids club can be found on the Ninth. The 2 pools and jacuzzis can be found on the Sun Deck (Deck 10) as well as the Topsiders Bar and 2 breakfast/lunch restaurants: Piazza San Marco and Cafe Royale. Both provide a buffet for you to pick and choose from the many food options that they have. Deck 11 (Sky Deck) is for those looking for a tan as it is exposed to all the sun has to offer. Just be sure not to stay up for too long as the funnel exposes diesel out into the open air. Overall, it's amazing. The staff onboard cannot do enough for you and always have a friendly smile. They become more like friends as you continue your holiday and all take the time to say 'Hi!' As you walk past. Do not let the reviews online discourage you from booking the cruise! They do not represent what the ship has to offer at all and should not be taken seriously if you are a fan of the Thomson Cruises. It's not Royal Caribbean style quality, but it's not shabby either. As a teenager, it was perfect. I could not have asked for anything more from the staff, facilities or ship! Would defiantly recommend, and hope to be cruising around with her next year! Read Less

Hellenic Classics Cruise 26th June, Well i had intended to put a review of our trip as we traveled but we had such a great trip that time just ran away with us. Anyway here goes, Check in at Birmingham was busy but moved fairly quickly and we were through to the departure lounge in 30 mins. Boarding was called an hour before take off and was well organised at the gate, we took off 10 mins late. We had extra legroom seats that were even a lot more room than Monarch Extra leg room, while friends in row 24 said that they also had loads of leg room without paying the £50 each extra. Nice smooth flight of 2 hours 50 mins and we were in Corfu, short coach ride to the terminal to collect the cases and on the transfer bus in under 20 mins, again very well organised. Short 15 min ride to the port to check in and have our pictures taken along with CC details and we were on board in no time at all. We had a quick wander around top deck and 15 minutes later our cases were outside our cabin. We had cabin 836 an outside plus that i had checked with the Thomson shop that had a clear view that we paid £42 extra for and was not dissapointed as we had 2 large windows and an uniterupted view. The cabin itself had clearly seen better days with the furniture quite old and worn but everything was very clean and worked well. The beds were spotless and comfortable and the shower was the best i have had on any of our 6 cruises, never short of hot water even at peak times. Our friends had a standard outside cabin 850 and that was quite small compared to ours and did not have a fridge however we were hardly in the cabins for it to make that much difference. Yes the boat is now 23 years old but it was well looked after with the maintenance crew constantly cleaning or painting different areas every day, it is certainly not a rust bucket as i saw more rusty bad areas on the Carnival Sunshine 2 years ago and that had just come from a multi Million refit. There were 2 areas of concern for me and that was around the main pool and Jacuzzis where the tiling was in desperate need of a refurb, then the other issue was the soot from the chimneys at the rear of the boat. This needs sorting somehow as the top aft deck was unable to be used as everything there got covered in soot, the sunbeds in that area were in a terrible state and looked disgusting. That apart we had a great week, mostly it was a very friendly happy crew just with a few exceptions that were Eastern Europeans that clearly had no people skills. We had the drinks package free when we booked and made full use of it every day and overall was well impressed with the bar and waiter, waitress service. There were plenty of places around the boat where you could get a quiet drink away from the crowds if you wanted to. Read Less

I booked this cruise with Thomson Cruises from June 5th - June 12th 2015 and thoroughly enjoyed it. The ship was immaculate and infection control was in place at the toilet areas by using anti-bacterial gel provided. Hand gel was compulsory before entering restaurants and administered by ship staff. The food was fantastic and in abundance from morning to night. The cabin was adequate and cleaned frequently throughout the day. Sleep quality was good and the bed comfortable. The ship staff were efficient, polite and very friendly. Entertainment was very good and enjoyable, but you had to be early before the shows, to get a seat. The cruise itinerary of ports of call were excellent and plenty of time was allowed to go ashore sight-seeing. The cruise itself was very smooth and not once did I find the ship sway or move suddenly. In fact, I did not feel the ship docking whilst still in bed early morning. The only thing I found was that no cash was taken on-board at the bars and I had to open an account in sterling linked to my bank card. Not a problem but I had taken euros in cash and a cashpassport card loaded with euros. However, I was able to spend the euros on shore and what I did not spend, transferred them back again to my bank account to cover the bill on board ship. You could open a cash account in euros which was converted into sterling and a cash account in sterling by placing a deposit of £200.00 which you would have to top-up if spending over £200.00. So it was far easier to open an account by bank card and then you were billed in three separate payments throughout the cruise. To sum up, an excellent experience and cruise. Highly recommended !!

Hi My friend and i ecently got back from a brilliant cruise on Thomson Majesty on 22nd May 2015. We flew out from East midlands airport to Corfu. The transport from Corfu airport to the ship took about fifteen minutes and was faultless. Seeing the ship for the first time was wonderful. A great whiteness against a clear blue sky... Perfect! Once on boarding the ship, i realised that it had had some use. It was what i would expect from a three star hotel in England. But what it lacked in newness, it more than made up for in atmosphere. The staff couldn't have been nicer and more helpful. Always on hand and neatly dressed. J D, one of the barmen/magician kept us entertained while pouring drinks. High, always served us with a smile, while filling our wine glass. Ry, was always on hand to bring us a fresh drink. And Emma, a young dancer, sponsored me for a charity event in aid of the Sheffield Children's Hospital !!! The life on board was relaxed and easy-going, with plenty of entertainment to keep you occupied through the day. The shows in the evenning were brilliant. Richard, the entertainments manager, must take a lot of credit. The ports of call were all well choosen and well worth a visit. However, Kalamata was a little dissapointing. I met some wonderful people on the cruise, who all seemed to share my view. Thanks to all those who contributed. PS Richard. Up the Owls !!! Read Less

Me and my husband did the Adriatic Explorer cruise a couple of years and enjoyed it so much we decided to do it again. We were not disappointed as everything was fabulous and we had a brilliant week - flight, embarkation all went very smoothly. Cabin - 462 - was rather small, next time we'd go for an outside plus on same deck, it was kept immaculately clean, no bad smells as others have reported. In the evenings we ate in either the Seven Seas or Four Seasons restaurants, preferred the smaller Four Seasons overall. Captains night was great, can't understand the number of people who say they don't like it, it's one of the highlights! Variety of food was fantastic, surely anyone complaining must be very fussy as something for every taste. The entertainment team are brilliant, putting on a different fabulous show every night, best were Africa and the West End Shows but all were great. Loved Kirsty the pianist in Rendezvous Bar, and late night dancing in Frame 52. I could go on and on. If anyone reads these reviews before deciding on their first Thomsons cruise please ignore the negative ones. This was our 5th Thomsons cruise and certainly not our last, looking forward to the new Discovery. Oh, quick word about excursions, we're not keen on coach tours but did a great boat tour in Dubrovnik and a bike tour in Split. All the ports in this cruise were lovely, Kotor was amazing, and Venice, so easy to just go ashore and do your own thing. Read Less

We were very apprehensive of our 2 week cruise after all the negative reviews on this site. We couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised. Our cabin was perfectly adequate with fresh towels and cleaned twice a day. The cabin stewards were always on hand to help with any problems or assistance. The food was absolutely fantastic with variety and service second to none. We enjoyed waking up every morning to discover a new island and contrary to what the previous reviewer said there was only 1 time that a small charge for the shuttle bus into the island was required. Walking into the other towns was not a problem at all and was certainly of no distance! I cannot rate the friendliness and service of the staff other than excellent . Please take any negative reviews with a pinch of salt and enjoy your cruising experience and holiday. Highly recommended. Read Less

Had yet another fantastic cruise on this lovely ship - it's our 3rd time on here and we are looking forward to the next one! The weather was warm with some very warm days and we had very little rain to speak of. Sea slightly more choppy than we are used to (we usually go in summer and on the Med) but nothing we couldn't deal with! As always the entertainment was 1st class - top quality Broadway style shows every evening, or the choice of game shows, quizzes, quiet piano music, entertainment from resident band Red Syndicate, karaoke- something for everyone. I struggle to believe that some of the people who have written bad reviews could have been on the same ship. Can't fault Thomson or the Thomson Majesty. Cabin crew, entertainment team, waiters, bar staff couldn't do enough for everyone to ensure that we all had a perfect holiday. The food was good too, plenty of it and plenty of choice. Well done Thomson. Read Less

My first ever cruise took in the Canary islands and Agadir in Morocco. The Thompson Majesty was a very impressive sight at the quayside in Tenerife towering over us. The arrival and booking in process was professional and friendly. Our suite which had a balcony was lovely and clean,roomy and well presented. We found all the ships staff, mainly East European, very helpful, considerate and yes professional again. The food during the cruise was of an exceptional standard, tasty and well presented in the restaurants and filling with a large choice from the buffets during the day. Drinks and wine, we were on the drinks package, were very enjoyable, the red wine was especially nice. We had enough time in each of our 5 stops to get off and explore. What amazed me was the attention to detail paid to hygiene, tidiness and politeness. Will certainly consider cruising again with Thompson, a wonderful experience. Read Less

We did a two week cruise on Thomson Celebration in Feb 2014 - see jorjababygirl review - so a one week cruise on Thomson Majesty this year was planned simply for a winter break. We were again a bit concerned with some of the negative reviews and we can confrim that many of the points are valid, like soot all over the decks and I had a top cleaned by the ship at no cost due to marks.Yes there is mould on the shower tiles and there are bits of scrapes here and there and we could be picky about the buffet area on deck 10 which is too small to cope. But also the staff are great, the Thomson arrangements are good and overall what you get for the price is tremendous value - all inclusive food and drinks package, choice of entertainment, no tips or other charges (except for the safe) and a plus outside cabin for £850pp in my book is value. I measure this against having done 25 previous cruises with P&O, Princess, RCCL and others also 2 Nile boat trips. If you want bigger and better it is available but not at that price. Read Less

Having just returned from a 7 night cruise with Thomsons Majesty around the Canary Islands,Morocco and Madeira, I felt that I just had to write a review! Okay, where to start?! As a family of serial cruisers over the past 15 years, we have enjoyed some fabulous memories and experiences on many of the Worlds finest Liners and so I guess we can assume to be fairly knowledgeable on cruising rateability. I am writing from the perspective of a family with young children,teens and couples as over the years we have covered all dynamics as a group. We are ,I guess fairly middle class UK people and are proffessional company directors. This is my first review, so here goes. I booked the Thomson Majesty for the first time as the itinery and cost was the high selling point being half term. I had read so many reviews after I booked that I was concerned as nearly all seemed to be rather negative and damning. I went with an open mind and a sort of "oh well, if the food and ship is that bad, I shall treat it as a water taxi to the ports and lose a pound or two!" I was surprised to see how different this ship was to the likes of Cunard and Oasis and the Seven Seas but having noted that she is a few years old, there was a great effort to revamp and customise most of the public spaces and all was maintained beatutifully and spotlessly clean. The pool deck which features 2 small pools and 2 hot tubs as well as the 2 bars and seating areas was very clean and plain but nevertheless functional albeit,no recreational pool for kids. Our room was a suite,room 903 on deck 9. Very spacious and evident that the attendants try very hard to make it as comfortable and appealing as possible,but in truth,this is the only area that I was disapointed in as it needs total refurbishment but it was comfortable enough. My praise kicks in highly for the Buffet area Piazza San Marco where we ate most evenings as it was the best eatery casual style I have ever experienced! The food was freshly cooked,expertly offered up and the service was fantastic. I compared this eatery to Windjammer on RCI and have to say that Thomsons do a finer job and all on proper china plates and not those awful plastic plates in WJ. I also rate the cost of the drinks and alcohol, all more reasonable than other ships. Another endearing thing I noticed were the platters of food that were offered in the bars and theatre and entertainment areas, another plus for Thomsons. The service was exceptional. We did two tours with them and they were fantastic value for money. In fact the whole booking procedure from booking on line to flying with their aircraft,the transport to and from ship,the priority boarding etc etc was better than I have experienced with RCI and we are Diamond Plus with that particular brand! The entertainment was superb and well executed and I feel that the talent I saw on that ship will some day be big household names! It was refreshing to see mostly British entertainers who "got us" and we "got them"! Another exceptional feature was afternoon tea which RCI do very badly, but this ship did exceedingly well. So, I know I am going on a bit, but I feel full praise for Thomsons Majesty for giving me and my family and friends a superb week and sure enough,we will try their other ships out too.

We booked another cruise on this ship having had an absolutely brilliant time last May cruising the Adriatic. It did not disappoint again. Cannot understand all the negative comments especially someone who only ate bread!! Food was great, staff were brilliant and the entertainment was superb, much better than on more expensive ships according to many guests we talked to. The ship might not be the most modern, but very friendly and all the guests we met were very happy. I saw another comment somewhere that suggested all the guests were over 80 - what utter rubbish. There was a nice mix of people, though not many children. You need to take very negative comments with a pinch of salt as there are hundreds of happy cruisers who don't leave comments. So go and enjoy yourselves on a very good priced holiday.   Read Less

This was our first cruise, selected almost accidentally. I was slightly nervous about it, having read previous reviews which were not particularly complimentary. I must say that we were pleasantly surprised - the Majesty is not a huge ship, which we quite liked as it was reasonably easy to find our way around and we soon discovered where our favourite bar was! Some areas could have done with a bit of refurbishment but everywhere was kept spotlessly clean and I was particularly impressed by the hand sanitisation process before entering the ship or any of its restaurant areas - also that all handrails were wiped with disinfectant regularly throughout the day. The staff are incredibly well trained and scrupulously polite and helpful - and, my goodness, do they work hard! Our cabin was spacious with more storage space than we needed - but we had upgraded to a larger outside one. We ate once in Le Bistro (the a la carte) restaurant, which was excellent and well worth the £20 surcharge. The food in the remaining restaurants was variable in quality, although always hot and plentiful. I particularly liked the 'egg station' where you could order a freshly made omelette or eggs benedict. The range of items for breakfast was quite incredible. My only real gripe was the coffee available from the machines - which was vile! (We had purchased a drinks package so drank coffee freshly prepared at the various bars) The entertainment team worked tirelessly to keep everyone amused and their late evening show would rival some we have seen in the West End - particularly the final evening when they performed a selection from well known musicals. We were lucky enough to see the comedian, Carl Schofield - an act not to be missed if you have the opportunity. Unfortunately, we hit very bad weather on the evening before our day at sea, which persisted throughout the remainder of the cruise - I know many of the passengers were unwell, as were some crew members. Safety was, however, never in doubt. We enjoyed the excursions we booked and feel they were well described on the website. We did feel that the Fantasia show in Agadir wasn't particularly impressive however. Read Less

This was our first cruise. In our opinion, we found the Majesty immaculately clean,the decks looked like they had been scrubbed with a toothbrush! All of the staff were amazing. Who ever is in charge of recruitment and training at Thomson, is doing a superb job! Many a uk based company should take a leaf out of their book. Nothing was too much trouble for them, and it was always service with a smile, and politeness. The food was excellent, there is no way anyone should go hungry, it is available 24/7. In a range of different eating establishments, although we didn't try the restaurant that you pay a supplement for (we thought that a bit cheeky The entertainment was superb, and the young team were full of energy, and fun, and professionalism, and the staff night and comedian were excellent. How ever those young women carry those trays laden with drinks like they do, I'll never know, and to get all the boarding cards back to their rightful owners,is amazing. (Uk staff take note) Wasn't to keen on having to sit with strangers every night (tables for 2 needed) as the conversation went the same way......(is it your first cruise, we ve done loads, where are you from, what do you do?) and this can get a bit wareing after a time. The drinks package was expensive, but turned out to be well worth the extra. On the whole we enjoyed the cruise, but not sure if it's the right holiday for us (yet) The Majesty is a bit like myself......getting on a bit, but with a bit of help in the mornings with a bit of lippy and powder, can still look like a fine figure of a woman!   Read Less

Went on a 7 night cruise around the Canary Islands in Feb,,,, The Majesty is a very friendly ship with lots to keep you occupied any time of the day or night,, food was tasty, hot, and there was always lots of delicious dishes to choose from,,, we paid extra for the drinks package, I think this is a good idea if you like wine with your meal, drinks while in the bars and theaters, and any other beverages throughout the day and evening,, We were on deck 7, outside cabin, which was excellent, we had a large window flat screen T.V, and plenty of space for storage.. The entertainment crew did an excellent job of keeping everyone busy, with lots of quizzes etc,, There are two theaters with excellent shows on for all tastes,, singers and groups playing music throughout the day and evening, at different venues of the ship,, so always something to do while on board,, although you won't be spending that much day time on the ship as there are so many fabulous places to visit while on shore,,, In Madeira, you will be able to walk from the ship to the lovely town area via the very picturesque promenade, along the way you will pass the statue of the great Renaldo who was born there, he also has a museum run by his cousin, that's if you are interested in soccer. !!!!! , La Gomera was also very pretty, with quaint shops and places of interest to visit,,, all in all, a fantastic week was had by us both,, off next on the Island Escape,, will keep you updated on that one soon,,,, Happy Cruising...x Read Less

As other contributors to Tripadvisor will be aware, reviews of hotels, attractions and cruises can often vary between awful and marvellous and it makes you wonder if these polarised opinions can possibly be of the same holiday. My wife and I have just returned from a seven night cruise of the Canary Islands on Thomson Majesty. We have cruised with a number of cruise lines including Royal Caribbean, Costa and NCL and we were a bit apprehensive about Thomson Majesty after reading some of the less positive reviews. I can honestly say that our cruise with Thomson Majesty was one of the best cruises we have been on. The food was of excellent quality, both in the restaurants and the buffet and, although the variety wasn't as extensive as some of the bigger cruise lines, it was more than adequate. The entertainment was provided by the ship's own show staff and was just as good as some of the shows we have seen on bigger cruise lines. The singers and dancers put 100% enthusiasm into all their shows. Our cabin was 804 and was one of the ones that were converted to a balcony cabin last year. The cabin was more spacious than I thought it would be and it was located right behind the bridge. Prior to going, I looked at the plans of the ship and was a bit concerned that our balcony would be next to an outside staircase and that we'd have people passing by our balcony on a regular basis, however this staircase has been roped off and it's only for emergency use. The cabin was very quiet being near the front of the ship. I heard other people mention that the inside lower cabins were a bit stuffy. The staff on the ship could not have been more pleasant and our cabin staff, Zornitsa and Ivan were so friendly. We would definitely cruise with Thomson Majesty again. Read Less
