Review summary

Overall our cruise was fantastic , some of the trips were a bit rushed and not enough time at location . The ship is fantastic and the staff onboard are the best I've seen on a ship. I would definitely go with Thomson again !

The embarkation was so smooth and seemless , no luggage to carry on board was a great help . The staff were very helpful and happy to help .

The cabin was lovely! Plenty of storage space a nice comfy bed and a hot shower .

Ship tip

She's an old ship so don't expect the odd problem , but once it's reported , it's sorted ! If you smoke be prepared to go up on deck , or at the area at the stern .
