Went on the thomson celebration 10th oct 11. Everything fantastic.Had a outside double room on deck 3 , and it was very comfortable spacious indeed. We ate in the lido self service restaurant , which was superb , and loads of choice. Also had breakfast and dinner in the waiter restaurant the Meridian, even more superb [egg benidic ,sirloin steaks the best ever].Went to the mistral restaurant 1 evening, 7 courses plus bread rolls and a palate cleanser [sorbet].this was outstanding meal to be had.highly recommend.The entertainment was good,day and evening.Plenty of sunbeds.
All the staff on board where fantastic, very welcoming and friendly.Our cabin steward "Andi" brilliant.
We were not impressed with the ports of call . But we just enjoyed the time on the ship instead.But i suppose that goes with the area we went to , leaving marmaris to antalya,larnaca,haifa,port said,port alexandria back to marmaris.
The standard of cleanliness is extremely high,and constantly sanitising our hands. Which i feel is needed when there is 1250 passengers and 24 hr food available.
Overall it was a fantastic 1st time cruise, overwhelmed at times.The staff made us feel so special.Cannot wait to try another one..
The only negative i do have is the engine shuddering and vibration noise.No matter where you are on the ship you feel and hear it.Even in the night and it does disturb your sleep.so this would be the only thing that would stop us returning to this ship. Which is such a shame as would love to book a return visit on her .
