We chose this cruise because we have always cruised with thomsons and also the itinerary was one which we wanted. Tui seems to be a bit of a poor relation to Thomson cruises. Although the ship is newer than the other fleet it lacks the ... Read more

This was our second Thomson cruise having been on the Majesty earlier this year. Despite being an older and smaller ship, the Thomson Spirit was a fantastic choice and I can see why people return to her year after year. Embarkation at ... Read more
