Weighing in at 40,876 tons and carrying 1,462 passengers per cruise, the Thomson Majesty is far from the smallest vessel in the line's fleet. But she's not the largest either, and you'll find intimacy and comfort in the most unexpected of places.
All cabins are either inside or oceanview. There are no balconies. Accommodation is also very snug, with the majority of cabins measuring under 120 square feet. Junior suites provide a little extra seating as well as a walk-in wardrobe and 130 extra square feet added onto the standard. You'll also find a fully-stocked minibar and a tub-shower combo in the bathroom.
By default, you will receive no choice in the cabin you get. However, if you want to make a request, there will be a £39 reservation fee. Once past the accommodation, a cruise aboard the Thomson Majesty is a rather pleasant experience, made all the more so by the lively itineraries provided by the line and also the plethora of amenities and public rooms. Big-ticket entertainment options help to keep those sea-days entertaining as well. For a ship that's showing her age, the Majesty is actually doing remarkably well.
Food is provided across a total of five restaurants, which certainly allows you a bit of choice during your ocean voyage.
The all-open-seating main dining rooms are Seven Seas and the smaller Four Seasons - both have stylish decor if nothing particularly groundbreaking on the menu.
Other establishments consist of the poolside grill and buffet venue, both of which are viable lunch options or child-friendly dinner options.
Finally, the for-fee Le Bistro is excellent for those who want to make the evening go with a bit of a bang, offering excellent French dining and a sparkling selection of dishes.
A bedazzling array of activities that will keep anyone entertained on board. This is where the Majesty really comes into her own, with a septet of bars and lounges, production shows and performances hosted in the Jubilee Lounge, quizzes and cabaret acts and live music, as well as a small casino.
