A CRUISE AND A COOL BEER!

Sail Date: August 2011
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Embarkation: Barcelona

lots of support at the airports due to walking difficulties.
checking in on board very easy and arrange your ship's account.
we upgraded to PREMIER cabin on deck 8,lovely cabin with lots of space( it seems to be the smokers deck and sit in front of you window,a bit annoying)
the crew aboard the ship was very friendly and always ready to help.
food very good,ALWAYS HOT,and you have a choice of restaurants.
the shows where very good,we liked them but OK not every body's choice.
the drinks on board are pub prices,hence much better then any Thomson Gold Hotel,they charge you twice as much but we still like the Thomson Gold Hotels.
we did not go ashore in Tangiers and Casablanca,too hot but Gibraltar was nice and not far from the docks.
we had a walk in Almeria & Cartagena but very hot hence short walks.
IMPORTANT: ONCE YOU HAVE HAD YOUR BILL THE DAY BEFORE DEPARTURE YOU CAN NOT GET ANY DRINKS,ONLY WATER TEA AND COFFEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
OTHERWISE WE HAD More FUN,MET A LOT OF NICE PEOPLE AND ENJOYED THE CRUISE.
WILL DO IT ALLOVER AGAIN ONE DAY!! Less
