Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Apr 2017
  • Destination: the Eastern Mediterranean

Cabin ok but we booked a sea-view we could see a lifeboat hull! Food average, too little choice for non-meat eaters, the service was good to ok outside restaurant, sporadic inside. Pools are minuscule and the jacuzzi was out of order all trip.

Excursions not good value, the Alanya tour was a waste of time, best to do DIY, Same with Athens a taxi to the centre was 20 euros we saved around £100 and did everything. The entertainment was of a very amateur standard, I left the Blues brother tribute 10 mins into it, not good.

Costly drinks of reasonable standard. DO NOT get the drinks package at £199 each, a rip off, there are cheaper packages available on the first day of the cruise (they don't they you that when you book!)

The staff work their socks off and were generally excellent but slow service in the lido (busy),

Wouldn't use Thompson again...........
