Disappointing!

Chose this cruise because we enjoyed our Caribbean cruise on Discovery last year. Our main grumbles were with the poor quality restaurant food and the shambolic service in the Latitude. The food presentation was ...

Brilliant cruise

12th cruise, first time on a TUI ship. Excellent itinerary. Had to wait on the runway for 95 mins as the plane wings had to be de-iced. No drinks were offered, a very poor show. Overall the cruise was fantastic ...

Don't think Thompson can do a Caribbean Cruise

Flights delayed going and returning to Gatwick. We paid premium seating but did not even sit with each other there or back. Cabin on 8th deck with balcony didn't have the usual wow factor. Cabin stewards were ...

Thomson has lost its magic!

We have been cruising with Thomson once or twice a year for the last 17 years but since TUI has taken over standards have gone down-hill. Food was not up to cruising standards and service was very poor- not ...

If you have not done this, you should. Don't let ADA scare you, but explore it!

We were on the Wind Star, 4-masted sailing yacht . While this is a ship that only holds about 150 guests, it seems like they have about 1 for 1 on the crew. The ship is well taken care of in all regards. The food ...

Myself and most others on the holiday became increasingly annoyed by the moaners who were determined to make their negative comments known at every opportunity. Most of us were having a great time and could not ...
