Having experienced a lovely holiday on the Majesty in 2015, we decided to add a weeks cruise onto a hotel holiday for the first week in January.
Sadly standards have slipped in all areas of the ship and it was altogether a very disappointing experience. eg, holes in pillowcases and bedding, discoloured bathroom towels, cold unappetising food, distinct lack of interest from some of the crew, cold cabins and public areas
The Thomson entertainment team produced a good show most evenings - however, we had seen the shows before in 2015!
As an earlier reviewer has mentioned it was more like a floating holiday camp and every morning when the cruise direct Taylor McCullogh started his briefing I expected Hi de Hi!!! I would compare it to a working mens club environment.
There was no heating/airconditioning for the outside cabins on the 8th floor and the cabins were very cold at night.
We followed several other cruise ships and each time the Majesty was berthed in the dock furtherest distance from the shore - obviously the cheapest berth.
The Majesty is due to be retired from the Thomson fleet in the autumn - it should be retired now before the reputation of Thomson cruising is tarnished further.
