From start to finish, this was an amazing cruise! When we arrived in Las Palmas we were greeted with a warm welcome and a nice cold fresh orange juice. Check in was speedy and simple. The Spirit is a small very friendly ship but has all the amazing staff and entertainment that you could possibly want. We had an outside cabin on deck 2. We were pleasantly surprised at how spacious the cabin was. It had everything you needed in it. we had cabin number 672 which was fairly central so movement and noise was minimal. The cabins were cleaned twice a day with fresh towels and nightly chocolate on pillows and blankets turned down. The food was wonderful......available almost 24/7. Full cooked English, continental, fresh omelettes etc etc. The lido restaurant served lunch, afternoon tea and cakes and evening meal with so much choice and was always hot. The Compass Rose restaurant was waiter service with a choice of menu and 4 course. The staff here were so wonderful and always there for you and anything you wanted. The wine waiters were always there to fill up your glasses. Our waiters were Ezz, Ehab and Samsung!! They were awesome and so so friendly. The entertainments team were amazing!! So professional and delivered top quality entertainment every night. Music, Dancing and singing.....just as you would find and hear in a west end show!!! They were so young but so professional. The ship was very homely as it was a smaller ship and a little tired but it did not bother us at all........the staff and quality of service certainly made up for it. We could not fault this cruise and would defiantly cruise on it again........just to see all the staff again!! Would thoroughly recommend it to anyone!! Thank you to everyone on the Thomson Spirit who made out cruise 100% enjoyable.
