First time cruises, but had a great time, ship nice and clean even though people from week before were still on board, we boarded in limassol at lunchtime, lunch was ready when arrived on board this also gave us time to look around the ship
Before everybody came on board, cabins compact but everything you needed was there. Facilities were good,sauna gym, live shows were excellent a was all the entertainment on board. Food, so much of it and what a variety.
Thomson tours quite expensive, went to Jerusalem/Bethlehem would not recommend this tour, so much rushing around and really did'nt get to see a lot, would get a taxi from outside port and negotiate a price, taxi drivers also act as tour guides so they are good. Staff fantastic most are Philipinos and cannot do enough for you, we tipped well at the end even though we did'nt have to, they deserved it.
