Full Review:

Get the impression this boat is slowly being phased out. Everything about it is drab and tired looking, you can only paint over rust so many times!!! This also applies to the staff, with a few exceptions, what ever happened to the happy smiling crew who used to be on Destiny?? Why is it this ship visits Tortola every week?? not so good on a 2 week cruise when there are many other better islands to visit. Is it because of berthing charges I wonder!! Also why does this ship play second fiddle to all other cruise ships?? ie berthing in container docks or anchored off because berths in the cruise liner docks are full with other cruise liners. I and my wife have had some memorable cruises on both this ship and other Thomson ships but quite honestly this last cruise we felt Thomson were tightening the purse strings and it really showed. Sadly it was more like Butlins holiday camp at sea than a 4 star cruise.
