We thought we would cruise on this ship again as it had been upgraded to Platinum we had a 7 day cruise around the Canary Islands, we had a Balcony Cabin which were newly created the balcony is a nice addition.

From here nearly everything goes down hill ,Ship is old and tired, the food is disappointingly of poor quality , I had hoped that since our last cruise on this ship and since it has been upgraded to Platinum the food would have improved I have had better food in Hospital !! I certainly expect as good as I get at home or better , but it was neither, you cannot compare this ship to P&O nor RCI apart from that one other good aspect was the passengers were mostly very friendly until some of them ask what you think of the ship and when you say it's a tired old ship , the food is not very good etc . we had a few disagreeable comments made to us ,however that's life , after the cruise we stayed in Teneriffe and the hotel Thomson booked for us was very good in all aspects

Thomson Celebration - never again
