What have I let myself in for!

Sail Date: August 2011
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Embarkation: Athens (Piraeus)
Thomson Celebration ship - Aegean Adventure cruise

Day 1, flight from bristol left a 7am, to marmaris, 3hr 50m arrived in dalaman, directed through the airport and straight onto a coach, boy it was hot, had researched the trip before going, had 2 bottles of water off the plane, need them. Coach journey to Marmaris was about 1hr 30, very hot little air conditioning, bags off the coach and into registration, left bags with cabin tags on and boarded the ship, (bags will arrive in cabin later on) all i can say this was very slick, no hassle, on arrival of the ship, hand wash on entry, and everywhere you went on or off the ship hand wash every meal, very clean, because we arrived early we got to go around the ship, and spotted level 10 top of the ship is the best place to sun bathe, very clean and all the staff were very polite,

bad points of the cruise, bit outdated especially the shower,

good points clean and very tidy,

happy staff always trying to More help

cost of drinks - just like the local pub

food - no matter where you went to eat plenty and good quality

tons to do during the day if you want no nagging from staff

show - professional done - just like the west end

no nagging about the trip - your choice

information while on the trips was brillant they knew there stuff

sun bed plenty though day at sea they were a limited

cinema, internet, quiet corners, casino, shops, tv, eu sockets

for your ipod and chargers

all i can say is that you arrive on ship and your encased in a little bubble and all the worries are lost, i am a convert and looking forward to the next cruise and on the same ship it was a truly a "celebration" holiday Less

Port and Shore Excursions

scary, not much there except the acropolis police everywhere on motorbikes

nice and easy, 20 mins walk to the centre plenty of shops for your genuine fakes, not much of a beach
