Thompson Majesty - Canary Islands

Sail Date: March 2013
Destination: Canary Islands
Embarkation: Other
Arriving at the docks inTenerife I was disappointed in the new "flagship" of the Thomson fleet, nice coat of white paint but most of the NCL names still visible. I was thinking its possible that a ship with the NCL, Costa, P&O, or Cunard logos was where I should be.
My first look around, at our upgraded outside cabin, with frayed curtains, grey sheets and broken Ice bucket is not up to our usual standard or the buffet style 1 st. Meal that words fail me on.
Can I endure 7 days of this ? I eat much better at home and I have come for something special.
So there is a " speciality restaurant" at 19 p.p. extra, so I'll book this a few nights and in two ports, Madeira and Gran Canaria we are there until 22.00, we can eat ashore.
I went to reception to book this feast before it got too busy, only to be told we are not going to Madeira but 3 nights in Gran Canaria then back to Tenerife as the weather forecast is not too good. So I will be able to eat in a descent More restaurant even more! ( most other cruise ships either changed their itinerary around or used a bit of imagination ) we were given a massive 25 compensation.
So no Madeira the one place we wanted. The Aida Sol was on a similar itinerary to us and reversed its route going to Madeira at the end of the week, when the weather was calmer, Still they say you get what you pay for.......
Let me finish with some positives about this cruise, um...oh I've only been back a few days ... Less

Cabin review: 750

Very small outside on the lifeboat deck 7. Had reflecting windows on outside most people on jogging deck outside smoking, drinking, talking or picking spots or noses in our window. The water in sink and shower was rusty on occasion. We did not take Cat so we could not swing it anyway. There was enough cupboard space for my 2 shirts but not for her 2 cases.

Port and Shore Excursions

Some nice Restaurants especially the one built in the pier at the eastern end that specialises in Fish

More restaurants

It's warmer than Tilbury and the 910 bus goes to a nice beach
