This was our first cruise and what an experience. Such a friendly ship, the staff and crew could not do enough for us from the cabin stewards to the waiters in the restuarant and Bar. The food was excellent and you must try the food in Mistrals, excellent and well worth the extra £19 you pay. The entertainment was top class, a different show by the show team every night such a talented bunch of individuals. Working so hard to ensure we all enjoyed ourselves, the only exception was the Cruise Director, the only time you saw him was for the applause at the end of the, which was a shame as friends had told us that the Cruise Directors w. The alternative entertainment in liberties was refreshing and so funny the guys up there did not fail to entertain us and make us laugh. Emma the entertainment host made sure that we were always enjoying ourselves and got us up to dance at every opportunity. Mr and Mrs was great fun. We would have liked to have expressed our thanks to the Cruise Director, but he was never anywhere to be seen apart from the applause at the end of the shows but never available to speak to. The Trips were expensive so we only did the two Petra and the Pyramids but i would not have missed them, a once in a lifetime visit. I will certainly travel with Thompsons again

Excellent Cruise Experience
