What a nightmare.

Sail Date: April 2011
Destination: Middle East
Embarkation: Safaga

One of the worst cruises by far. Firstly thompson flights are far to small for the lenght of the flight. Most we boarded the ship, we realised what a low budget cruise this was. After several days people were going down with the norvo virus. Why do people think it is alright to enter the dinning room without washing there hand. So disgusting. we even saw people leaving the toilets with out washing there hands. Surely they should realise how quickly these viruses can spread. we spoke to several people who had contacted this v irus. The food was ok, but nothing special. The best night was when we paid to go into the Al la carte resturant. Food was great.

We also spoke to a few people who had got the virus, but these didnt think it was worth reporting. How selfish can some people be. I'm sure this virus will be on that ship for a very long time.

The hassle in most of the ports really got on your nerves. Its such a shame because this ship has alot of very good staff, More nothing was ever to much trouble. Personally I dont think we will ever be booking a Thompson cruise again. This is definately a low budget cruise. Princess and Roayal carribean are quite a lot dearer but worth every penny. Less

Cabin review: Thomson Spirit 709

This cabin was the best on any ship that we had previously cruised on. The cabin was off the main corridor, this meant there were only 2 cabins here. God what a large size cabin. We were so pleased. This was possibly the best part of the cruise. Would recommend this cabin 709 deck 2. Our cabin steward called Maria was so very helpful, always went that extra mile to make sure everything was just right. Thanks again Maria.
