Full Review:

Food was magnificent mainly, plenty of choice. The cabin was clean and comfortable. Bars were reasonably priced and service very good. Most of the staff were very friendly, some, especially the officers and those dressed in white who are supposed to be in charge were mainly miserable and ignorant. The entertainment was mixed, thanks to the rubish resident band we had a few early nights. The shows were pretty good but how can Thomson select singers who can't sing in tune? The games shows were very amateurish and cheesy - contestants were cronies who sucked up to the Cruise Director perhaps one of the reasons one guy took part in 3 of the games when there were hundereds of other potential contestants. Good variety of trips but like all Thomson trips they were expensive and could have been done independently at a fraction of the cost.

Cruise Positives:
Weather, Food, Variety of things to do when the boat had docked

Cruise Negatives:
Entertainment was not to the same standard that it was last year and certainly not what I would expect for a holiday costing in the region of 1800 for the two of us. I will not return
