Having sailed numerous times with NCL, MSC, RCI and P&O I was more than happy with my recent cruise with Marella especially after reading some of the reviews. Flight, transfer and embarkation to our cabin was the best I have ever encountered, all well planned and trouble free. The ship is smaller than the others I have sailed on but every facility is available. The food was amazing, we ...

So here is my review of my first ever cruise on the Thomson Celebration (Mediterranean Sunrise). Obviously I have nothing to compare it with as I have never sailed before, but I have stayed in dozens of hotels worldwide so I will try to be as honest as I can. Sorry it is so long, there’s so much to say, but I have subtitled each section for ease of reference. * Outbound Flight – We flew early ...

The cabin ...

I went on the 'Holy Lands' cruise, March - April 2013. It was fantastically good value and had the most wonderful time! I loved being on the ship, arriving at an exotic port at dawn, a days fabulous sightseeing,all extremely well and comfortably organised. The best local restaurants booked for us at lunchtime, top-flight lecturers informing us on what we were seeing and about the countries we ...

After getting off the plane we collected the cases carrying them to the waiting coaches, then at the port had to drag them in the dark from passport control down steps to the ship ourselves. As we arrived late in the evening we had missed the sit down meal and the show.The cabin had a blocked toilet and smelt of sewage, deep mould in the shower which was a tray and shower curtain next to toilet.We ...

First time solo traveller sailing around Red Sea, Egypt

I booked the holiday as I wanted to see Egypt and thought staying on a cruise ship would be safer - it was!! The room - I was surprised that the bed was a double and the room was very spacious. Loads of storage space, flat screen tele and of course shower room. The only critisim I have is that the shower area was a little tired. However the room was fantastic. I opted for a port hole and ...

The ports of call are not attractive and I do not recommend this as a first cruise, we were very disappointed that it was not easy to get off the ship and explore on our own. This is a cruise for people who plan to get off the ship on Thomson Excursions to Luxor and Cairo and not a itinerary for those who want to try out cruising for the first time just to be on the ship for the ...

first off,i'm not a "cruiser" but can't resist an itinerary which takes you to places you might not otherwise go to and thomsons do some cracking itineraries with the minimum of seadays.they also provide a complete package; flights, transfers,gratuities and all-inclusive so that you know what you're letting yourself in for cost wise and can relax. the price? well, they use older ships with ...

Thomson Celebration. Red sea. Jan'.10. Flight from B'ham. On Time. Cramped seats, poor meal, should use larger aircraft, to my mind 6 hours odd is longhaul. Embarkation: Smooth, Good. Ship, General: Showing it's age in places but spotless throughout and kept that way at all times. There is some vibration mainly towards stern in area of Lido. It was no problem to us. Crew: Excellent from cabin ...
