The Thomson Spirit surpassed our expectations

Sail Date: July 2011
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Embarkation: Other
The staff were so helpful. They could not do enough for you. The ship was clean and the facilities were superb. I would recommend the wine package that you are offered on your first evening down at the Compass Rose restaurant - really good value for money.

The horse riding in Turkey is a must, a real experience. We had never ridden a horse before, let alone swim on one in the sea. It was amazing fun and good value for the money.

Also the bike riding to Athens was great too. The guide was good and made the journey enjoyable. It was a different way to see and experience the sites of Athens, and you do not have to be an experienced cyclist to take part.

The entertainment on board was very good. We found there to be plenty of variety. The play, which the entertainment team put on when we were at sea all day, was also very entertaining.

It was my husbands 50th and as soon as the restaurant staff knew this they went out of their way to make our evening More special.

We had a great holiday and even our 15 year old daughter didn't want to come home. We definitely want to do another cruise and we would certainly travel with Thomson again. The Thomson Spirit had a real family feel to it.

It may be one of the smaller cruise ships on the seas but what it lacks in size it more than makes up for in hospitality, and friendliness. Less

Cabin review: 34o503

Our cabin was more than large enough for 3 people. We had more than enough storage. It was very clean and well looked after by the stewards. It was quite enough and near enough to all of the facilities.
