Additional details

Sail Date: Oct 2015
Cabin: Oceanview

we set sail on the Tapas & Tagine cruise from Palma 6 October 2015.

All the travel arrangements were well arranged by Thomsons. The ship itself is quite dated and does need updating but was always clean and tidy. The cabin (9500) was adequate and reasonably comfortable. The housekeeping staff did a fine job every day.

The food was varied, well presented and tasty. We went to all 3 restaurants over the week. The Beachcomber is self service and is available all day. The island ? Restaurant requires you to be seated and given drinks by waiters but is still self service but you get table clothes etc. the third restaurant, for which you need to book and also pay an extra cover charges well worth it. The food is delicious and is all served by excellent waiters/waitresses who would do any restaurant proud.

Cabin Review


Cabin OV

Our cabin was right at the front of the boat. It was adequate in size but would have befitted from a little more space and somewhere to sit. The beds were reasonably comfy. The bathroom was ok, the shower powerful enough to wash your hair easily.
