Our very first cruise about 16 years ago was on thomson breeze and since then we have sailed with many cruise lines ( p&o,ncl,rccl,celebrity) about 14 cruises.but hadn't sailed with thomson since. So when we saw this 5 night mini cruise that was visiting some places we hadn't been too we decided to book.

We went with an opened mind knowing that the ship was old (about 28 years old) all the ships we have sailed are all under 8 years old.

We were pleasantly surprised the food was as good if not better than other lines.(well presented and hot)

Cabin Review

Cabin Outside plus

quite a large cabin with picture window. Double bed against side wall ( not under window) plenty of storage space. Sitting area with couch and table. Bathroom with small bath and over bath shower,

Mini fridge,tea coffee facilities.

Not far from lifts and stairs.

Port Reviews


Lots to do in barcelona. But this time we choose to walk around the marina to the chair lift station which took you over the top of the ship.

Cartagena (Spain)

Never been here before .we managed to get an evening and a full day here due to ship not docking in valencia . We spent the evening looking at the lovely shops on the Main Street then ate out there and had a few drinks as well. The following day visited the museums and had lunch and a few more drinks out. Lovely marina which offers boat trips


Been here a few times before. This time we walked to the chair lift station and took the chairlift to the top were the apes are. The views up there are amazing and the apes make it even better.

After we visited the new ocean marine area that has lots of bars and resteraunts very nice and modern area.
