After sailing previously with other cruise-lines I was told about Thomson/TUI cruises and how good they were so I thought I'd risk it and take a chance on the Discovery owing to the itinerary. Boy was I in for a pleasant surprise as the ... Read more

It's interesting to observe that some people seem to aim to find as many faults as possible right from the off with a holiday. We saw it as we boarded the TUI Discovery: a couple were unimpressed with the (moderate) queue to board - though ... Read more

Travelled with a friend. Expected big things with all the hype about Tui being 'more upmarket'. Basically its like a floating 3* all inclusive - the room was ok - no frills - plenty of storage space. The room staff were excellent - ... Read more

We read the reviews on this website re: this ship, just before our cruise started, with some concern, so much so that we had very low expectations. We were pleasantly surprised to find that we had nothing to worry about. We really enjoyed ... Read more

I chose this cruise to mark my retirement. We had looked at a number of other cruises but saw this as a late booking and liked the look of the itinerary. We booked a Junior Suite (8060) on the port side so we would have the sun on our ... Read more

This was our 1st cruise with Thompsons and having read the reviews were slightly apprehensive. All staff were cheerful and extremely helpful. The cabin, although small with an outside window was spotlessly clean, with fresh towels daily. I ... Read more

We choose this cruise because we wanted to take our family away to celebrate my birthday and it had to be in half term because of our 8 year old grandson. I have got to say we were awestruck from the time we boarded until we left. We ... Read more
