Red Sea Magic on Thomson Celebration
Destination: Middle East
However that said I must say this is the most noisiest ship I have been on; and whether in the bar or the Broadway lounge or wherever, there was constant noise and vibration - definitely a case of the ship showing its age. The pools/jacuzzis were of little or no use being so small; and it was often impossible to get a sunbed on deck (especially sea days)- something again I have never experienced on board. The cost of drinks (approx £3.50 or more were exorbitant).. certainly a good deal dearer than P & O and often seemed to be 'watered down'. The staterooms were okay - although showed their More age, and again were very noisy (the walls being so paper thin you could actually hear what was being said in the cabin next door!- again something never experienced before). The bathroom was definitely in need of a refurb. The hand towels were very very poor and quite frankly not fit for purpose - being small, hard, grey coloured and 'well past their sell by date'. (Indeed I have never encountered such poor quality linen when on board ship) - luckily I took my own!
The staff and service were good, BUT I personally felt this to be what can only be described as a 'BUDGET' holiday - but with top dollar prices (as witness the cost of drinks etc). The cost of trips were again exorbitant (approx £600 for myself and husband for 3 trips - again costing far more than on other lines. Would I go Thomson again - NO. Too pricey by half - for what is effectively a very budget type holiday! Less
Cabin review: 406
Small, in need of refurb, noisy, bathroom facilities poor - linen poor. Beds again more like cots than bed and not the most comfortable.
