Sail Date: Sep 2016

Family suite was the pull on this occasion , coupled with the itinerary. I have cruised with Thomson on umpteen occasions over the last decade on all its ships (8 times on Island Escape) + & never had cause to complain - this time one or two grumbles.

The smoking restriction has congregated far too many smokers in one area with insufficient seating - Thomson is a budget line & as such captures a large market of smokers - if they wish to continue with a resticted policy they need to plan and accommodate that fact! Banning balcony smoking whilst reducing smoking deck areas doesn't fit and causes friction!

Dinner in the main restaurant & Glasshouse excellent, food in 'Islands' invariably lukewarm & not acceptable!
