Air conditioning system is very noisy and you can't turn it off. I'm a good sleeper but still had to put ear plugs in.
The vibration from the engines is horrendous. Even on deck 9. You constantly feel it in bed and when the ship docks it nearly shakes you out of bed.
Very noisy with bars above and below the rooms. Not such a problem for us as it stops at midnight but could be for some people.
Waiter service is intermittent. Good in some bars, none existent in others.
We were part of a company of 3 couples and as I said overall it was an OK introduction to cruising. We enjoyed the holiday mainly because of our friends, not so much the ship. Value for money?? not sure, I don't think so. We have been booked for well over a year due to planning 6 peoples work commitments so we paid top dollar and I don't think it was worth what we paid. Book any Thompson cruise early enough and you can get all inclusive. Less
