Into the Spirit

Sail Date: July 2011
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Embarkation: Other

Having been on the Thompson Spirit before - when the ash cloud hit and after receiving outstanding service when the flight home we decided to go on the same ship again and can honestly say we were not disappointed. Thomson Spirit is not the newest or most modern of ships but what it lacks in this area it makes up for in service. The service in the Compass Rose was great with the staff being amongst the friendliest you can find. The food as always was served hot and the choice amazing in all of the eating places.

The shows performed by the cruise team were mainly good but the most outstanding was "Africa" which received a standing ovation, and the visiting comedian was so funny.

Drinks are reasonably priced with a good choice.Some of the trips were a little expensive but the ports that we visited made it really easy to book your own trips or just get on a bus or walk round the towns. All in all for the money that the cruise cost it was certainly value for money Less

Not bad size, very clean and towels and linen spotless.Quiet area to the front of the ship. Shower cubicle a little small but always clean.

Corfu town was where we departed from and the transfer to the ship was good, we did not have time to expore much so just had a walk round the town

Dont get chance to look in the shops due to being harassed by the staff standing outside. Shops were lovely but did not even stop to look


Lovely town, prices a little more expensive than in other towns but lovely to stroll round
