Better, but still a few niggles.

Additional details

Sail Date: Apr 2017

This was our seventh Transatlantic crossing, the fourth with Thomson, sorry, TUI! and about our 25th cruise in total.

Previously we've crossed on Celebration, lovely little ship! I shall be sorry to see it go, Azura (P&O) and Adventure of the Seas (RCL).

Flight was great. Travelled Dreamliner Premium Club which is worth every penny of the additional charge. Transfer was OK by Barbados standards but they don't have big comfy buses and its only 30/40 minutes so no big deal. Embarkation was swift and possibly helped by the fact we were in a Junior Suite with priority boarding.

Cabin Review

Cabin Junior suite

Nice spacious cabin in a good central location. Some of the furniture displayed evidence of the age of the ship. The TV cabinet didn't close properly and was misaligned. All it needed was a technician with a screwdriver but it was never repaired. Bedside furniture was quite badly marked but over all, cabin was clean and comfortable. Nice balcony with comfy chairs and a sun bed. No major issues.
