Fabulous adriatic cruise in a noisy old ship!

Sail Date: August 2011
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Embarkation: Edinburgh

The posts of call are tremendous this being the main reason that we booked Thomson's. Kotor is really nice and I am surprised that Thomson are not visiting next year its really special.

Food not to my taste if you like meat & two repetitive veg this is for you. Far too many roasts and stodgy puddings! Staff excellent and could not fault.

Cabin VERY NOISY, located beside the entrance to the engine room smells of diesel. Not my idea of luxury. Avoid the rooms to the Aft as you need ear defenders in to sleep......... The Thomson fleet are very old ships and past their sell by date. Beware if you are near the medical centre as the vibration and noise of the engines might seriously damage your holiday. I am a light sleeper and have never encountered anything like it on a cruise. Have cruised with other lines. Found the beds to be comfortable but the towels in the bathroom I would not use for dusters. They are thread bare.

This is not a cheap cruise but the More value for money is seriously woeful compared to other cruise line. Fortunately for Thomson most cruisers do not try other cruise line so have no idea what they are missing. Less

Cabin review: Thomson Spirit 555

Cabin 555 at the aft of Thomson Spirit is to be avoided as its extremely noisy.
