Disappointing 6th cruise
Destination: Canary Islands
Embarkation: Madeira (Funchal)
- We had all cruised 5 times before with Thomson ,twice before on this ship
-We were all disappointed with the tired looking ship ,the shower was looking tatty,the refit has not extended to the cabins
-Two nights of entertainment were repeated the shows were excellent but we were only onboard for 7 nights so can't understand how this happened!
-The drinks we find reasonable -at normal pub prices
-The ship was very crowded it is very hard to find a sunbed on the day at sea
-This ship struggled with the rough seas most days on the Atlantic -being a converted ferry .I think it should be kept for the Med or Red sea routes only.
-We have always loved our Thomson cruises ,we love the shows and the food but there will have to be some improvements made before we go again Less
Cabin review: IN
Cabin in need of refurbishment- looks old fashioned- we could hear the singers in the pub -we were on deck 7.The shower needed a makeover. O n the plus side we enjoyed the the up to date films shown and our steward was excellent.
