Big mistake

My previously booked NCL cruise out of Portugal was cancelled and I was hoping to replace it with similar cruise in the same time block and saw this low-priced alternative but it was a big mistake. Terrible communication, never told me what was needed or even tickets, unable to reach MSC by phone or login in on website. Never told me port of Casablanca cancelled or that could not leave ship at ...

Having sailed with MSC numerous times on several different MSC ships, our group were looking forward to our 9 night cruise. Embarkation at Malaga a nightmare. Having obtained our PCR certificates, our luggage was put onto the ship without anyone bothering to check that we had the necessary paperwork. As it was a requirement by MSC to have the PCR test 72 hours prior to boarding, you would have ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 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 ...

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 ...
