Basic no frills cruising : Thomson Spirit Cruise Review by broadsword
Overall Member Rating
Basic no frills cruising
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Entertainment is very British with the usual brash double entondre humour on board English comedian called Buster. If you closed your eyes you would swear you were listening to Lenny Hendry!! The all singing and More dancing company were just fantastic and if I recall they performed 6 completely different multi change, high energy routines on this seven day cruise! This was on top of their other entertainment help outs over the week.
The food in both the Compass Rose restaurant and the 24hr bun fight Lido Buffet eatery were again very British fare with "Home from Home" food with emphasis on quantity rather than quality.The did have a cover charge restaurant called Sirocco`s A La Carte which we never tried mainly because of the Â£19 surcharge!!A bit over the top for Thomson when you consider the bigger cruise companies charge on average $20
To sum up, if you are older single cruiser or a couple, and is your first or second cruise, not looking for glitz, like an array of bars and public lounges with food that is only acceptable with fantastic show times then this is the cruise for you. Less
Cabin review: 89d
Cabin located on deck 8 was spacious with plenty of cupboard and drawer space. Toilet was of a decent area and had a bath but the water poured that slow we never used it!The cabin was directly below a sports court and could on accasions have loud excessive bouncing ball noise.
