Full Review:

we were in a party of eight with four of them(inc mum) having cruised with thomson for the past 3 years so myself and partner(chrissy) had a fantastic insight into what to expect and despite of the weather we were not let down.we had two weeks of exceptional service(we all agree that ALL staff helped make this cruise)and considering the range of food/the amount of passengers to feed and the availability, food was fresh and 5star quality.some of the ports were poor but if you hop on a train/bus/taxi you can see why these ports were on the itinary(excursions are available but we prefered to go where we wanted to go).we experienced some poor weather but that wasnt an issue as the entertainment crew(hats off to kain & jayne) and rallied round to ensure we were entertained(go fully inclusive cos we had a few drinks to many when the rain fell).talking of drinks,the waiter/ess always ensured you had one(especialy on the sun deck and how do they manage to know your names from your first meet to the last).
entertainment was excellent(if you could manage to get a seat in the cancan lounge)and the tv spin-offs shows were hilarious.the highlight of caberet evenings was where we all got an invite to the head of entertainments top table(KAIN&JAYNE)for a meal to die for, then onto vip seats for the show,fantastic!!!!!!!

Cruise Positives:
first experience of a cruise and already considering the greek islands nxt year.myself and my chrissy were concerned about sea-sickness but with the ships stabalizers(had talked to captain)we experienced none,so if its your first cruise and want plenty of

Cruise Negatives:
cabins were small, we had outside deck 5,but hey you only sleep there and 1hr to get ready??????,also some very ignorant passengers,by the way,there wre even official complaints to crew about the weather, unbelievable!!!!!
