Full Review:

Embarkation / disembarkation an absolute dream , quick efficient well done team. Overall ship not luxury but adequate for the itinerary and level of passenger. The overall service was good and staff went out of their way to please. The entertainment was beyond approach and Richard the cruise director should get a pat on the back . The bars were efficient but far too many mix ups with wrong cards being presented back to customers , I personally witnessed at least 10 occasions. The ports of call were mixed
arrived Warnemunde late so no Berlin. This could easily be avoided by changing things around to make this port the last instead of the first. The weather was unkind to us throughout , no fault of Thomson but depressing. The excursions as ever ere over priced , a simple city tour at each stop and a trip to the winter palace in ST Petersburg set my wife and I back almost 750. Save the worst till last the food on this trip was poor by Thomson standards , appalling menu construction (several days with a roast joint and no potato or veg to accompany )lots and lots of indian or Asian food ( I hope you like curries )
Of the many cruises taken with Thomson this was the worst overall a 6 out of ten for this cruise.

Cruise Positives:
Entertainment kept our spirits up.

Cruise Negatives:
