A bit like a care home but there were some good points

Review for Black Watch to Europe - Western Mediterranean

A bit like a care home especially the lounge areas. A lot of elderly people with their carers on board and ambulance often waiting at the dockside. Some good points and some bad. It certainly would not suit everyone this ship or the type of people. This review in 3 sections. 1. the Good 2. The Bad and 3. Some other general observations GOOD: Classic elegant salons Small ship - easy to get ...

We're on the Celebrity Infinity right now. Just pulling into Vigo where I will post this. We're in Aqua class, eating in Blu. Those of you concerned about the quality of the ship, shouldn't be. The ship is fine, with constant maintenance. The staff are consistently helpfull and friendly. The food is excellent with only a few exceptions. We were offered half price dining in SS United States, the ...

This was our second voyage on Infinity (we have also sailed on Eclipse - far superior in our opinion). We have also sailed with Carnival, Princess, RCL and P&O. We were very unhappy on first Infinity cruise (July 2014, Iceland and Fjords)- ship- tired and in need of TLC, crew - apathetic, food - repetitive, mediocre and tepid). Entertainment - poor. We were offered an upgrade to Concierge on our ...

Entertainment was excellent cannot praise the entertainment team enough,every ...

We arrived in Harwich at the same time as the world and his wife. I am expecting to have a hip replacement so was very wary about standing a long time in the very long queue. A girl noticed I was having to use a stick and she invited me to sit inside. Whereupon my husband & I by-passed an equally long queue inside the building and were taken to a priority desk and were seen straightaway. I so ...

This was our first Thomson cruise and having previously cruised with Royal Caribbean and P&O, the ship looked disappointingly small and lacks the WOW factor!! But it is over 30 years old. Also we feel that we got a good price for our 15 days at sea. We had booked an inside cabin to be allocated on arrival - we have done this before with other cruise lines and always had a lovely double bedded ...

Just back from 15 nights Med Explorer. weather fantastic the whole time .....makes a big difference . Embarkation at Harwich was tiresome simply due to the number of passengers all arriving at the same time ....long cues ...wait of about an hour...unless you are in a suite or de luxe cabin when you get priority boarding......straight on ...great Food was first class in Lido self service ...

This was the 2nd time we have sailed on the spirit . There were 4 of us. The cabin on floor 9 was good and kept immaculately clean. The food in the Lido self service was excellent and the staff were friendly and efficient ..all the time .We ate in this area every other night ......but could have been just as happy going in every night..Which might have been the case if we had travelled as a ...

What a fantastic cruise. I cannot praise the Thomson Spirit and its crew highly enough. My wife and I love this ship and just wish we could afford to sail in her every year. Every member of the crew we came into contact with could not do enough for you and one even remembered us by name from 3 years ago. My wife walks with a stick so handling a tray of food and walking to a table usually means me ...

Mediterranean Odyssey on the Spirit - Disappointing

Previously sailed with Thomson on the celebration in February 2013 (Red Sea) and loved it so much we booked this cruise. We choose it because of the ports we would visit are some of the smaller ports, and this being our first long cruise being a young couple, we thought it represented an excellent chance to see places we might not see on larger ships. There were several issues leading upto the ...
