This was a last minute booking for us so we didn't get to do a lot of research. We've cruised many times with larger cruise lines mostly American and family oriented. I am going to go over the first impressions first which weren't great ... Read more

We wanted to try the transatlantic after 7 previous Thomson cruises. After booking the itinerary was changed - these things happen. We were informed we owed £37.84 (we did not) oh it was a computer glitch! The flight was fine. ... Read more

We had a brilliant time; Flight to Jamaica was delayed slightly, boarding the ship delayed due to RTA. Went to Honduras and Mexico, it was amazing to wake up at these paradise locations. We did a number of excursions, visit to see and ... Read more

We had a lovely week in Montego Bay in the Riu palace, would defiantly give that a 5 star rating. We were advised by Thomson rep to stay at hotel first as we would be disappointed with hotel after the cruise, this I might add was ... Read more

We chose Thomson's as we thought as first timers we could rely on them to meet our expectations and the Caribbean Mayan Treasures cruise sounded interesting and we should have good weather. Our journey from the airport in Montego Bay to ... Read more

Firstly I will say, as I have travelled on NCL ships I was comparing. The first night I was so deflated at being on such an old ship. It really is run down and dated. Although the cabins are modern and comfortable. The 2nd day, ... Read more
