Full Review:

Having cruised before with Thomson, we knew what to expect and the expectations were as just as high as on the previous cruise. The service levels from all the staff were fantastic, nothing was too much trouble, no matter how big or small the request.
The entertainment was good but we found that the Broadway Show Team were not as good as last years Team.

The Compass Rose staff excelled in everything that they did, 1st class service and always with a smile, from Leroy the Maitre De to Mido and Ayman our Waiters for the duration of our cruise. The singing waiters were a bonus whilst we dined.

The ports of call were very interesting apart from Casablanca, which to be honest, is just a dump and Thomson need to think again before putting this port of call on their itinary.
The Bar staff were great and once you had placed your order with them, they remembered what you were drinking for the rest of the evening.

The Cabins on Deck 2 were very spacious with the added bonus of a Double bed.
The facilities were good if you needed to use them but if you just wanted a day relaxing and chilling out on the Lido deck listening to the excellent Top Men band or partaking in the daily quiz, then that was up to you.

Cruise Positives:
The cruise was excellent value for money and the friendliness of everyone on board was a refreshing change.

Cruise Negatives:
The smallness of the swimming pools and as stated, Casablanca.
