Holy Land & Aegean - Turkey Israel Greece Cyprus: Thomson Celebration Cruise Review by SussexMay
Overall Member Rating
Holy Land & Aegean - Turkey Israel Greece Cyprus
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Having been on cruises before with P&O, Fred Olsen, Royal Caribbean, there is quite a big difference. This cruise was much more relaxed (one formal night a week, which we didn't join in with), and more basic surroundings, although some may prefer something a little more upmarket. Different types on this cruise (think bare chested men with heavy gold necklaces and tattoos) and next time I would avoid half term - mainly because of parents who think it's ok to let their children run wild. P&O is the best in my opinion but this was a different sort of experience.It was a fun, enjoyable and relaxing cruise and much more More casual than others I have been on but this has its merits - it depends what you want.
Could highly recommend day trips to Nazareth and Jerusalem. All ports great choices.
We preferred the food in the buffet (unlike P&O) and if you timed it right (dinner after the show rather then before) then the buffet was fairly quiet.
Certainly extremely good value and I would go with Thomson again - avoiding half term or school holidays of course Less
