Sail Date: Nov 2017
Cabin:

We normally cruise with Fred Olsen and have also been with P&O, so thought we would try a different cruise line. As the Discovery2 is new to Thomson and the iternary was what we were looking for.

We sailed from Santa Cruz perfect for us as we live in Tenerife. The ship is large but not too large we prefer the small to mid size ships. Embarkation was painless as we arrived early before all the flights arrived from the UK. Our cabin was ready on deck seven we chose a balcony cabin. The cabin was very nice, plenty of storage, good size nice balcony and the bathroom was a decent size, however the only problem for us was the bed was too hard.

The food was fine not five star but hot served by very friendly staff. The only downside for us which we knew before we booked was there is no formal nights. There was one night which was (dress to empress) and a lot of people did make an effort, others did not, still in shorts and t-shirt.

Good size plenty of storage bed too hard. Good size bathroom.

Port Reviews

Madeira (Funchal)

There were no coaches to take passengers to the town. This was not very good as it was a long walk. OK for us but there were a lot of passengers with difficulties.

This was all so the case in Lanzarote that was a fifty minute walk, not good.
