Umm know the feeling. After Ocean Village favourite of all for standards, cabins, food, and staff, then onto PO Ventura a lovely ship in it's first month of sailing - Med, and recently Fjords, and since twice Majesty but did not like Celebration too small, so returning on Majesty Colourful Coasts again next week. You have to try like you mention you get what you pay for, as long as the sun shines around the Canaries then it's worth it. Will be good to see the staff again they were oh so friendly and remembered your name when they served you with a drink. Good service with a smile. Thomson do have the right idea. If only they could get some modern cast off ships RCL would be good, with out the price tag and tips. !

You may also wish to know that at some point Thomson are also getting mein shiffe 1 and 2 (ex celebrity cruise ships) transferred from TUI cruises at some point in the future but no dates have been set as yet for those .
Like yourself, have sailed many times with other large cruise lines (20 ) but we have sailed with Thomson at least 7 times now and are, very nearly, more than satisfied. Been on Majesty twice in an outside plus (628) it makes all the difference and the staff are wonderful. Real value for money. On the Dream (2nd time) in June and expectations are high as usual!
