We plumped for a caribbean cruise as our first cruise because of the price. We booked it 4 weeks before going and got a great bargain.
We flew on the Dreamliner from Manchester and found it to be comfortable and quicker than normal planes. The check in for the cruise was well organised in Barbados.
Our cabin was on the inside on deck 5 and although small, we found it comfortable, and we were well looked after by Gun Gun our steward.
The food was fine for us, we usually had dinner in the Lido and breakfast in Sirens.
We didnt have a drinks package and found the prices reasonable, our favourite Bahama Mamas!
The islands we visited were diverse, my favourite been St Maartens.
The staff were extremely friendly and i couldnt fault them.
The entertainment was good, we tried to vary our evenings and always enjoyed ourselves.
I enjoyed reading the Cruise News before bed each night and thought the communication from the thomsons team to be good.
I cant really fault anything as we really enjoyed ourselves.
