- Our party consisted of the ages 13,18,50, 56,77 and 85 - We had all cruised 5 times before with Thomson ,twice before on this ship -We were all disappointed with the tired looking ship ,the shower was looking tatty,the refit has not extended to the cabins -Two nights of entertainment were repeated the shows were excellent but we were only onboard for 7 nights so can't understand how this happened! -The drinks we find reasonable -at normal pub prices -The ship was very crowded it is very hard to find a sunbed on the day at sea -This ship struggled with the rough seas most days on the Atlantic -being a converted ferry .I think it should be kept for the Med or Red sea routes only. -We have always loved our Thomson cruises ,we love the shows and the food but there will have to be some improvements made before we go again

- Our party consisted of the ages 13,18,50, 56,77 and 85



- We had all cruised 5 times before with Thomson ,twice before on this ship



-We were all disappointed with the tired looking ship ,the shower was looking tatty,the refit has not extended to the cabins



-Two nights of entertainment were repeated the shows were excellent but we were only onboard for 7 nights so can't understand how this happened!



-The drinks we find reasonable -at normal pub prices



-The ship was very crowded it is very hard to find a sunbed on the day at sea



-This ship struggled with the rough seas most days on the Atlantic -being a converted ferry .I think it should be kept for the Med or Red sea routes only.



-We have always loved our Thomson cruises ,we love the shows and the food but there will have to be some improvements made before we go again

Cabin Review

Cabin
Cabin in need of refurbishment- looks old fashioned- we could hear the singers in the pub -we were on deck 7.The shower needed a makeover.
O n the plus side we enjoyed the
the up to date films shown and our steward was excellent.
