This is going to a bit different but I feel it should be written.

We booked a week on the Majesty a few days ago in a balcony cabin. At the time of booking I made it clear that we wanted a full unrestricted view and were told we had it. I read comments on a Facebook page and I read things that when people arrived they had life boats in front of their windows. I got in touch with Thomson's who told me I had a clear view. For three days of me ringing and fighting telling them my concern in the end I had a phone call telling me my cabin had a boat in front of it. If I had not kept on at them and took their word I would have been so upset on arrival for my cruise.

Don't take Thomson's word for it if you book a Cabin with a unrestricted view make sure that is what you are going to get. We cancelled with a full refund but very upset we have lost our holiday.

Having read the reviews before my first cruise I was a little unsure what to expect but I will never read them again. I had a fantastic week on Majesty. Of course it is not a new ship but the cleanliness was amazing even to cleaning the outside of the ship each morning and I even saw a crew member way up high cleaning the funnels!

Cabin staff were excellent and the food was very good There was so much choice. I really don't know why people complain.

All the crew were so polite and friendly. Nadin in the coffee bar even got me the recipe for the delicious cinnamon biscuits which are all made on board! I enjoyed the band, singers and dancers each evening - very professional. There is so much to do on board even if you never left the ship for the excursions.

My only criticism is that it was a little rough for two nights and I don't know if extra could be done to make the ship a little more stable.

Thank you Thomson Majesty I had a wonderful time and for the people who complain I would gently suggest that they cruise next time on the much larger ships they were so fond of telling us about!

This was the first time we have sailed with Thomsons normally we sail with P&O and this was our 10th cruise. The Thomson Majesty is a medium size ship as regards super liners goes. 40,000 tons 1100 passengers.

Our cabin was small just manageable, there was no tea making facilities, the safe was £15 for the week, no fridge & no toiletries. The bed was OK, the wardrobe was small for two people but the toilet & shower were OK.

You had a 2 choices of where you had breakfast up on deck 10 for a buffet, not a great deal of room when attending the buffet area and some of the food was not has hot has it should have been. We decided to use the restaurant on a morning but you were told where to sit, tables of 6 or 8, again a bit of a scramble around the food area at 9-10am and not much room to manoeuvre. The food was good and a good selection. Evening meals were the same in the restaurants, you were directed to a table of 4/6/8 which on an evening is very sociable in comparison to breakfast when some times you aren't in the mood to make conversation. The food in the restaurants are plate served and was not to bad overall. There were times you were waiting to be served after you had ordered, in general service was good.

The ship overall? I was never settled on this ship all week. On the top deck there was no bar only sun loungers, the bars were next deck down, the majority of table & chairs were under cover, not to good when the sun is shining. There is no atrium on the ship just a reception area, no wow factor here then but more importantly a spectacular atrium becomes a meeting place on an evening and a people watching area before dinner. The bars were OK but in general lacked atmosphere. Theatres were nice and the shops served some very good deals.

A special mention must be made about the staff on the Thomson Majesty they were superb, left staff on P&O ships way behind.

Thomsons lease this ship from Louis Cruises it's over 20 years old but still has very nice furnishings, would we cruise on her again and with Thomson the answer is no.

My first experience on a cruise ship was one of the best feelings in the world, the sheer quality of everything provided from the food, service, excursions and amenities.

I would also like to comment on how cruise ships are miss lead to only appeal to older people, however I think this is wrong, it appeals to young, middle aged and old. I.e Kids club, shows (like comedians, strictly come dancing, Mo Town etc.), bingo, shopping, karaoke, piano bar etc and I myself a young adult really enjoyed everything.

I traveled with my gran and grandad and where where in a three birth cabin on deck 6 and there was more than enough room for cases, clothing and all the other things that go with it. The majesty just oozes luxury for the normal traveler, something I have never experienced before on any holiday.

I traveled on the Aegean itinerary and visited Santorini, Bodrum, Kusadasi, Athens and Kataklon (Olympia) and all excursions were really good two I went on was the Panoramic Athens and Olympic (Highly Recommended). I cannot emphasize enough how good this ship was.
