First experience of Tui cruise. Only really one small but important niggle.

Our reason for booking this Tui cruise was that we booked late and needed a disabled cabin, Tui were the only cruise line that could accommodate this at such short notice. We are not “seasoned” cruisers, this was only our fourth cruise in total and we have only sailed with P&O previously. We were nervous reading the reviews but have to say from the outset that we did enjoy our seven nights ...

Thought we would try Discovery 2 as it is an ex Royal Caribbean ship. They had great crew, seemed really happy, which is always a bonus. Plenty of time in the ports of call. The only thing we didn't like was the casino as this is always a fun part of a cruise. In this case it was far too small with only one crowded roulette table and dull electronic slot machines. Other than that we had a ...

I have been on several cruises. and this one was ok .. but that pretty much sums it up . it was ok...the ship itself although old . is still a beautiful ship.easy to navigate. plenty of restaurants .plenty or bars . they do get quite crowded though and it becomes impossible to find a seat . food was average we ate in the buffet mostly . but did go to the pizza and hot stone restaurant too. snack ...

Been on Thomson cruises previously and enjoyed the experience the Discovery 2 was to us different value from other Thomson Cruises the ship was clean beds comfortable but most times around the ship was loud music which although i do enjoy music was not at all necessary all of the time.Having previously enjoyed thomsons there seemed to be a bit of a sea change on board discovery2 although it was ...

We were originally booked to travel to Florida but as a result of damage etc and the hurricanes prevailing at that time we decided to cancel and were offered the chance to rebook so decided on a cruise and stay as always fancied this type of holiday. We had cruised many times before, only once though with Thomson on the Majesty which we hadn't particularly enjoyed at the time but had heard of ...

Having been on this ship before when she was Legend of the Seas (Royal Caribbean), I was interested to see what the changes were. It was like night and day! In the main restaurant the meals were not of a good standard and service was not good. We often had to ask for things like black pepper and tea and coffee. I got the impression that they were just rushing everyone to get out as soon as ...

We have cruised with Thomson before, last year on the Discovery 1, we chose Discovery 2 because the itinerys were what we were looking for. We like the all inclusive element with Thomson, not that we are big drinkers but it's good to know there is no bill at the end. We were in cabin 6010 which is a balcony cabin. Not a deluxe cabin but plenty of room. Plenty of wardrobe space with shelving in the ...

Went as first part of cruise and stay - second week in the excellent Yaramar, Fuengirola. Chose the cruise mainly because of itinerary, had never been to San Remo and especially keen to visit Valencia and Cartagena. Good flight ontime out of Manchester, very quick and easy coach transfer to port, unbelievably quick and efficient check-in meant we virtually walked straight onto the ship and were ...

We did a cruise only and met the ship in Malaga. They took our bags from us and we were on board within 5 minutes, very fast & efficient boarding. Our inside cabin had plenty of room and you couldn't hear any noise from anyone next door. The ship was fantastic. You would not have known it was older. Thomson had done a good job turning it into their own style. The best bit about Thomson is ...
