Ship Facts: Thomson Spirit Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Thomson Spirit Deck Plans
Thomson Spirit Pharoahs and Holy Land Cruise
My wife and I went on the Pharaohs and Holy Land Cruise on the Thomson Spirit in April 2012

The Itinerary included Antalya in Turkey, Alexandria, Port Said in Egypt and Ashdod in Israel

Having travelled on The Thomson Spirit twice last year we didn't hesitate to book this cruise on the Spirit again

The Itinerary included Ashdod for Jerusalem and Bethlehem and this excursion was by far the best trip we have had in 6 years of cruising all around the World

A little expensive, '£ 85 each but well worth it, the excursion came with a guide who was very informative and well educated.

The food in the Compass Rose restaurant was excellent once again and the service in there was equally good, the waiters ensured we had the same table each night and we were greeted by first names each night

The entertainment was outstanding, West End type theatre shows in the Broadway Show lounge and themed Game shows in The High Spirits Bar

The Resident Band, Rhythm of Three was very entertaining and Lauren and Lee were very good and confident game show hosts

The Room Service as always was excellent and the rooms cleaned and made up twice each day

I couldn't possibly find any negative comments about the Cruise and recommend this ship to anyone, whether new to cruising or cruise regulars

The friendliness of the staff was of the highest order, quite a few staff recognised us from last year and some even remembered our names

Finally the drinks were very reasonably priced, '£ 3.50 for a pint of draught lager and '£ 2.10 for a latte

Don't expect a five star ship but DO expect a five star service
