Embarkation at Limassol, Cyprus was late but hassle free. Compulsory muster at 9.30pm - just managed to finish Dinner in time.
This cruise was round the Greek islands- Cyprus, Crete, Mainland, Mykanos, Kusadasi )Turkey), Rhodes, Cyprus.
Our cabin was a no frills inside one very close to the lifts and stairs and very easy to get round the ship from.
Food was delicious, especially in the Compass Rose and we had different dining companions every night which we thoroughly enjoyed.
Breakfast and lunch was mainly in the buffet and although there was the odd time when it was very busy and difficult to find a table those times were rare . Worst day was the last one as the Compass Rose was closed for lunch.
It was a really lovely cruise in terms of service, food, friendliness, chill factor and entertainment. The whole crew work very hard to make sure you are happy and relaxed.
There were plenty of sunbeds to go round although some days were a little too breezy to go on them.
The on board shows were very good and there were some excellent singers and dancers but it did become a little predictable as the week wore on. Our favourite evening haunt after the shows was the Horizons bar on deck 9 with New Dimensions who will play requests. We didn't go in High Spirits so can't comment. Raffles was a good late afternoon haunt for happy hour. This was our second cruise with Thomson - first one was on the Destiny last year. This was even better.
Yes there is a vibration and it can be a little noisy but these are minor problems. Everyone I spoke to felt the same way- a lovely relaxed and friendly cruise.
