A ship with no fun. It is a floating 4 star hotel, nothing more. Staff are friendly but have too much to do to socialise. Food was excellent and plenty of it, the choice of food was excellent but if you did not want to share a dinner ... Read more

The itinerary for Highlights of the Med was the reason for choosing this cruise. We arrived at the port shortly after 2 p.m. and it took around 30 minutes to get to the front of the queue to board the ship. We went to check out the cabin, ... Read more

Worst cruise ever been on. Service was dreadful, if you were lucky enough to find a wine waiter,you had to wait ages for drinks. Gave up on occasions and queued at the bars along with others who had the same idea. One of our party ... Read more

We chose this cruise as Thomson had always been pretty good. WHAT ON EARTH HAS HAPPENED TO THEM? For a start the food was absolutely abismal. Horrible overcooked vegetables, terrible meat dishes which were sometimes unrecognizable as ... Read more

An old and noisy ship. Very down market. Cheap cruise and that's what you get for sure. Never again. Thomson staff at airport on way back were notable by their absence. Foreign cleaners and others were very helpful, but not highly ... Read more
