Brilliant surprise

Sail Date: January 2011
Destination: Canary Islands
Embarkation: Tenerife

First time ever holiday with Thomson - usually organise ourselves - but needed a hassle free holiday at short notice - so made last minute on line booking - but confirmed details on phone with Thomson.

We flew to tenerife from exeter and are lucky to have a local airport within a 1 hour drive. As usual- easy check in and then easy transfer from airport to Thomson Spirit. What a pleasant surprise to see a ship that looked like a liner - not a multi storey car ferry. I believe it wasa liner originally.

our cabin was spacious - unlike the boxes on Cunard Queen Victoria and we had a proper bathroom with bath. No plumbing problems or nasty smells. Very comfortable - could hardly feel the ship move or dock. Quiet. Just what we needed.

The staff are really professional, efficient & friendly. I am chairman of a large Tourism association and know a bit about the holiday business and I can say the high level of staff training shines through. Thank you in More particular to Clifford & Joven & Nadya. Lovely people - so polite and made us feel special.

The food in Compass Rose always presented well - tasty and at the right temperature.

What really made our holiday was the outstanding performances of the show team every night. The girl singers, Natalie, Jessica and Hannah - made the performers on British TV look terrible. they are so good and the costumes amazing. they are led well by old Ross - who can sing a bit himself.

Well Thomson - much better than we expected and will be happy to join you again - soon we hope. I can reccomend because this is a very well organised Company - everything went like Clockwork. Thank you. Less

Cabin review: 89d076

Cabin 076. Deck *. Deluxe Cabin. Spacious- quiet. No balcony - as Spirit has no balconies - but was fine - could see from the large window - although there is a lifeboat there. Kept beautifully clean and tidy.

Port and Shore Excursions


Madeira. Sophisticated place nice to visit.
