Brilliant entertainment!!!!

Sail Date: February 2011
Destination: Middle East
Embarkation: Safaga
Landing at Sharm, we knew it was a mad airport but a Thomson rep was waiting and we bypassed all the long queues to get our cases and walked straight onto a coach. Embarkment was easy and well organised, from landing to walking onto ship it took about just over an hour! The celebration is old and small compared to the large new ship we went on last year BUT she has the fun factor. All members of staff were excellent, the entertainment in the theatre was west end everyday! Josh, Holly, Kane and Mab kept us busy throughtout the day with quiz's and games.
First stop Jordan, a shuttle bus takes you down the town, drops you in a random place but a long leisurely walk back to the town is worth it. All excursions are well organised by Thomson.
The meridian restaurant was excellent, waiters were incredible and the food was amazing. he lido restaurant was fine bit same as daily as i am a veggi BUT they did offer to cook me something veggie every day if i liked (spoilt or what). More
Yes she does have a strange vibrating noise , nothing too loud just a faint rumble but with a ship her age thats to be expected??
Cabins were good size, the whole ship needs a revamp really as bit dated. Not much going on for the teenagers but we liked the fact we could dance the night away in Liberties together (something the larger ships dont allow).
Disembarkment was again simple, we didnt leave the ship till 3.45pm so spent the day relaxing till our flight. Would recommened this ship as its incredibly friendly with lots of decent entertainment. Less
