Yes you're right, Sailaway. My TA has just rung me to tell me that as of May - Majesty is taking over from the Destiny!!! So Majesty's not an increase in the fleet but a direct replacement for Destiny. That's going to cause a few logistical problems methinks!!!
sounds as though the entertainment isn't quite on the same footing though. More Concerto based shows with not so much/not the same showteam type productions!!!! Not sure about all of that but it could be a real mistake if they are changing this well known and well received element to the Thomson product. It will be very interesting to learn more about all of this. Anyone heard anything else??
Let's hope the early sailings aren't beset with problems!!!!
Got a feeling this could go terribly wrong!
I wouldn't be surprised if one of the main reasons for the swap is that Destiny fits in so many passengers that they're not filling them up. From what I've read about Majesty, I think I'd be really annoyed if I had booked for this season, and be told only two months before that we were having a ship change. Majesty has got awful reviews! Think I would prefer to go on Destiny. Be a shame if Majesty goes down badly as Adriatic Explorer is such a good itinerary. On a positive though, will help me decide what to do for next years itineraries.
So is this bye bye Thomson Destiny for good then? Island Escape is still for sale so it doesn't seem to replacing those itineraries. I know that the charter for Majesty is slightly odd in terms of its time-length, but it does look like this is it for Thomson Destiny. Last cruise will then be 16th April, Colourful Coasts from Funchal.
