we chose this cruise as we wanted to see some carribean islands that we have not visited before This was our second cruise we have also been on this ship previously approx 10 years ago around the canaries .This was actually our honeymoon and we informed thomson of this when booking..We booked only the one week.
We flew form manchester...flight out was delayed slightly by approx an hour so seemed very long The flight back was also delayed but only slightly and was much shorter.Both the flight crew and entertainment were good both ways .Food was ok and drinks were offered regularly at no cost.Great transfer from plane to ship short and efficient.Only problem was delayed baggage ...the baggage coming onto the ship seemed disorganised and chaotic we got one bag after approx 2 hours but had to go to dinner in our daytime clothes as our other suitcase did not turn up till later that evening
The service on board was fantastic most of the time.Our cabin steward,Aldrin was brilliant friendly and efficient nothing too much trouble he made us feel well looked after. The waiting staff were always friendly and happy to help but particularly in the lido restaurant they seemed short staffed and it was difficult to get a drink unless you had the water which was taken self service We loved how they came round with drinks trolley when we were sunbathing on deck.The reception were also friendly and helpful particularly one of the lady receptionists (whose name we never got )
very clean and well maintained,lovely bathroom but very noisy at night when the ship was sailing
