I travelled with my wife two children aged 8 and 10, and mother and father-in law for a week on Thomson Celebration. We flew to Paphos and then transfered to the port of Limassol.The organisation was good and we were soon on the ship enjoying the food.
THe ship is a little old but is very clean and well maintained. The staff are excellent especially the waiters and room staff for whom nothing is to much trouble.
Our children enjoyed the Kidzone and made new friends. They could not wait to go to the next session and were really disapointed when they missed out due to us going on trips.
The shows are of a good standard and varied. I personally did not like the UK comedian whose entire show was built around the theme of being drunk- a little to low brow for my liking but others certainly enjoyed him.
My only negative comments are that the food did not seem as varied as we had tasted on the Spirit last year. Don't get me wrong its still good but not as good.Also there were a few problems with the toilet packing up.But these were soon fixed.
The ports other than Alanya(Turkey) are all industrial. You can't really go far if you get off. You either take a trip or sit in the port watching ships load and unload.
Overall we had a great time and would think about going back sometime to visit some of the places we missed out on.
