Italian Flavours

Sail Date: May 2013
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Embarkation: Other
We chose this cruise for the itinerary and having cruised with Thompson before (Celebration) did not check out the ship first. We booked last year but many people on board had only booked last minute and paid vastly reduced prices.

The cabins are astoundingly small, only one person is able to stand at any one time, we have previously booked deluxe cabins and mistakenly assumed by booking deck 9 all cabins would be the same, not in this case, two very tiny single beds, separated by a chest of drawers, my husband is 6ft 2ins tall and found the beds too small, no bath, just a small wet room, the hair dryer is of no use if you want to blow dry your hair, take your own.

This ship is far too small for the amount of passengers it carries, there are always ques at the restaurants, if you wanted to eat from the buffet, there is nowhere to sit.

The Majesty is kept very clean and all staff are pleasant and helpful, the food is acceptable although not always that hot More and not of the same standard as P&O.

We had the all inclusive drinks package; however, this does not include water, I could drink gin and tonic or a cocktail but not water?? there is water and tea/coffee available at the buffet station 24 hours.

All in all we had a very good cruise even with all the small niggles but I'm not sure I would travel on the Majesty again. Less

Great location but the size of a cupboard, no noise
