This proved a very interesting trip around the Dalmation coast and then a second week visiting the Greek Islands. The destinations were magical, sailing in and out of Venice should be on everyone's bucket list but nearly every port had ... Read more

I chose this cruise purely for the destinations - Venice, Slovenia, Croatia and Montenegro. The locations did not disappoint and were utterly beautiful. The cruise itself was ideal - not too crowded but plenty going on. The Thomsons ... Read more

OK the ship is not brand new but you know that when you book, however it is excellently maintained, spotlessly clean. The staff could not be more helpful and polite especially the ones who keep the cabins in tip top order. The whole ... Read more

This was our first cruise and we chose it for the itinerary it covered and also the short duration. This cruise is not bad value for the money you have paid especially if you have the free drinks package included. The food choice is good ... Read more

This was our first cruise. We chose Thomson as it looked good value for money. We were also told that they were less formal than some of the other cruise lines. We chose a short cruise around the Aegean Sea. Initially this included ... Read more

I chose this cruise for its itinerary. Venice was wonderful and the Adriatic ports were oh so beautiful. The ship itself was old and dated and through the day the public lounges were SO cold. To the point of wearing a jacket! When ... Read more

We approached this cruise with some trepidation. We had done the Bay of Biscay a couple of times in rough weather on the big car ferries so no problem there. But we had not used Thomson flights or holidays for some ten years following a ... Read more

Arriving at Montego Bay was by a beautiful low inflight over the water to land at the airport. The paperwork for transit via Jamaica to the ship took some time and the terminal was hot and sweaty - until the coaches showed up and started ... Read more
