Ship past its sell by date

Marella Spirit Cruise Review by Wendywoo26

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Nov 2016
  • Destination: Canary Islands

The Thomson Spirit is a very tired ship? Although the crew worked tireless to make you feel welcome and the entertainment was good? there is not a lot more to praise?

The ships décor is tired and the cabins outdated and in poor condition? Reminds you of a car ferry? The food on offer is only average, and not that well cooked ?

The ship is noisy and vibrates badly? docking in the early morning shakes you awake even if the noise doesn't wake you up? Uncomfortable in poor sea conditions.

The public spaces are poor, the swimming pool had litter in it when we embarked, sun loungers past their sell by date, as is the deck furniture?

This was my first cruise on Thomson and probably my last?

Thomson need to withdraw it and get a newer ship! Thomson will be letting themselves down retaining this ship. It's had it's time move on?

In a nut shell, I have sailed on better car ferries!
