We didn't know what to expect from thomson cruises. Overall it was value for money. The cabin on deck 4 was not huge but adequate twin beds. The en suite is really in bad need of refurbishment like most of the ship. Everything works and the cabin crew kept it clean. The cabin was an inside cabin. As we don't spend much time in the cabin it was ok. The food in restaurants were ok. The decor of the self service areas could do with a face lift. The waiter service restaurants were good like the waiters good service and very friendly. If you didn't like the menu they tried to give a alternative. The dress code is relaxed shame really. The drinks package have lots of conditions. Unless included don't bother. The shows were great the entertainment were exceptional. The resident band were also excellent. We enjoyed every show. The Ship would benefit from stabilizers as it rocked all week even in calm waters, I suffer from motion sickness. The ports were nothing to shout about a long walk to most destination. The Thomsons trips we felt are expensive we only did one in Morocco mainly to keep safe. We did enjoy the trip cost over £30 each. It was easy disembarkation in port. Payment on board we used credit card but incurred a charge again this should be scrapped. The safe in cabin was extra on weekly basis. This could be included. At the end of the cruise little information given of where to wait for the transfer coach to airport. We got a good price for the cruise and felt it fair. If we had paid the full amount we would have not been satisfied. Many other travellers were disappointed either of cabin or paid to much for the cruise. Read Less

Having been on the Celebration just two weeks before hand I was looking forward to comparing the two ships and experiences. We had deck 3 outside superior room, beds had not been arranged as a double, however our friends room had and seeing how this affected space in the room we decided to keep ours separate...blissful nights sleep :) Standard of cleanliness and room service was very good, lovely two ladies Jessica and Irene looked after us, always had a chat and a laugh with them. The ship is easier to find your way around than the celebration, but I think I preferred the celebration more, especially after its refurb, I missed the excellent coffee and cake lounge. Restaurants were very good, although the Seven Sea's one was prone to a lot of vibration when at sea. For the first time on a cruise we decided to pay for a session in the extra restaurant (Le Bistro on Majesty), £20 a head, oh wow it was absolutely worth it and will do this every time I cruise from now on. There are plenty of bars on the ship - TIP if you are on the promenade and don't want to wait for the deck servers, just walk through the SPA on same deck to Flame 52 BAR only discovered this on last two days, always empty and get served very quickly. Entertainment - caught a couple of shows and the comedian Buster who was also a good singer. Good standard as usual, however the show lounge is very low especially compared to the Celebration/Spirit, and was a little claustrophobic and of course restricted some of the dance moves. The Itinery we did was Adriatic Explorer and was very good, Venice, Dubrovnik and Kotor (Montenegro) were the highlights - in Kotor we woke up to find the ship docked in this tiny port surrounded by mountains and you think how the hell did we get here!! (benefit of smaller Thomson vessels?) Summary Overall a great cruise, good ship, great food, brilliant staff (although the Philippian's were always very cheerful the eastern European bar servers tended not to be) . Would be happy to sale on the Majesty again, but the Celebration definitely pips it.   Read Less

Okay - The Pro's:-  The ship was very clean. Cabins were cleaned thoroughly, twice a day and the crew were often to be seen washing windows, mopping down decks and painting etc... so no complaints there. They don't charge a fortune for drinks and even though you're not supposed to bring any booze on board, they are not that 'strict' about it - unlike some of the posher cruise lines which can be a bit anal about the whole 'bringing drinks on board' scenario and treat you like a naughty school child if you are caught! Everything's fairly laid back - there's only one formal night on a one-week cruise. Cons: The entertainment, although fairly good quality, did get a bit a bit 'High de High' at times, especially around the pool deck area, which can get VERY crowded (not enough sunbeds)- with tons of idiots lying around and trying to fry themselves to a crisp! What is it about some people that think that getting burnt looks good? We built up really good tans just from strolling round the ship AND we didn't burn. There is no need to lie prone in full sunshine for hours on end. On the subject of sunbeds - people aren't supposed to leave them for more than 45 minutes at a time, but we found that some were staying away for HOURS. We got fed up and chucked a few towels to the side and managed to 'claim' some sunbeds, as we got fed up with people hogging them all day long! (yes it was US! :) The ship didn't stay long enough in some of the ports. A lot of excursions were rushed and took place during the hottest part of the day - not good. We met some lovely people, but as per usual, came across the usual smattering of Cruise Bores - You know the type: If you do an excursion - they've done a BETTER one! If you do an excursion - they like to brag about how they 'Did it on their Own'. Their holiday was better. Their holiday was cheaper. They've been on 500 cruises to your 2.... Their children are rocket scientists, doctors and brain surgeons and so on and so on. We were lucky and for most of the cruise we struck lucky and ended up on tables with normal people, but there were a few who I could have done without..This is the downside to cruising. I'm a sociable person, but sometimes I just want a quiet romantic meal with my husband after a long day of sightseeing - Not always possible on a cruise. Having said ALL THAT ! It's still great to wake up in a different place each morning.   Read Less
