Let me start by saying that this was my first cruise so maybe the points that I did not enjoy are standard on these kinds of holiday. If you are 60+, then you will likely enjoy this cruise. We went on the TUI Discovery 2 primarily to ... Read more

This was our go at cruising and we loved pretty well every minute of it. From the moment we arrived at Manchester Airport TUI seemed to be in complete control of every detail. Our only slight complaint was the queueing to get on the ship ... Read more

We went on the cruise to celebrate my sisters 60th birthday. She booked the cruise for the destinations and the fact that it was all inclusive helped. We booked into Manchester Airport the night before and paid for the fast track so ... Read more

This was our first cruise. We chose Thomson as it looked good value for money. We were also told that they were less formal than some of the other cruise lines. We chose a short cruise around the Aegean Sea. Initially this included ... Read more
