Sail Date: Nov 2016

We chose this transatlantic cruise as we enjoy sea days and this cruise had 6 sea days between Malaga and St. Kitts, and because we wanted to try Thomson cruises.

We chose an outside plus cabin on deck 6 which was large and very comfortable. Also well positioned to reach other areas of the ship. We were a little concerned that we would miss having a balcony, but as the ship is relatively small and we could easily get to an outside deck area this wasn't a problem for us.

During the 6 consecutive sea days there were some class activities for passengers to in. These were the choir, watercolour painting classes and a murder mystery drama class which was a first time activity for Thomson cruises. I participated in the choir and my husband signed up for the painting and drama classes. There was a minimal charge for the choir and painting classes but not for the drama group. We both enjoyed these groups and the people we met through participating in them. The choir put on a performance before both theatre shows on the last formal night, which was well attended and enjoyed by all involved. The murder mystery group presented their play in one of the show lounges and the audience were invited to give their ideas on "whodunit". This was revealed in a short performance after the lunch time break on the last sea day.

Cabin Review

Cabin Outside Plus

Spacious, comfortable, bed against wall not window. Plenty of drawer and hanging space.
