This was our 1st time cruising and definitely wont be our last. We booked this cruise as we wanted something special as we were celebrating our silver wedding, the crew certainly made it special for us an anniversary we shall never forget. 10/10 for Restaurants, bars, shops, entertainment and everyone involved with the spirit . We met a lot of lovely people and will be booking for next year. Good luck to the spirit (read more)

Overall I think that Thomson are a great company to cruise with and they really do look after you. The atmosphere on the ship was buzzing every day and night and it didn't take very long to meet some interesting and friendly people (not to mention the captain).
Things that I was worried about before the holiday:
Airport Transfer - The coach that takes you to the ship from the airport is fully air conditioned and comfortable, a great relief after our exhausting journey (especially if you... (read more)

Our Jewels of the Med cruise was wonderful. Our deluxe outside cabin was big and comfortable. The staff were really lovely. The shows were West End quality. The food was very nice. The excursions were very good and cheaper than we had expected. Although the buffet at the Lido restaurant was very nice, half the food on offer was the same every day. We loved our first Thomson cruise so much we have already booked another one for next year! (read more)

What a fantastic experience and one we shall certainly repeat. Can't thank the crew enough we were treated like royalty from the minute we arrived. The staff are particularly helpful and polite and the whole ship was immaculate. The freedom to do as we like and eat when we like was great and the entertainment was first class, far better than we expected. (read more)

All excursions were good except that in Agadir
We were in Agadir a couple of years ago with Suncruises and enjoyed the experience so much so we recommended this to the rest of our family - but the quality had gone down - great pity. (read more)

We had a lovely family holiday (kids aged 4 and 5). Almost treated like 5 star guests. First port, Palermo in Sicily is easily the worst, dirty and being Sunday mostly closed! Next year this cruise goes to North Africa instead (Tunis I think). Excursions much cheaper at the port, or easy by local transport. Kid Zone rep's brilliant. Entertainment team fantastic loads of staff always cleaning the whole ship. Travelling overnight was great, soft vibration sent us all to sleep, woke up in new... (read more)

This was my first cruise, and the Med Renaissance is a great itinerary.
I didn't go on the excursions, but I found out that the local trasport is really cheap - a return train fare from Civitavecchia to Rome is only 9 Euros and a tour bus is 13 Euros, yet plenty of passengers paid 80 pounds for a the Thomson coach trip and came back exhausted.
The holiday as a whole is great value, and it was great to wander through Corsica and the South of France.
However, the day at sea was terrible,... (read more)

The Thomson Spirit Idyllic Iberia Mediterranean cruise was out third cruise in a large family group (10+). We'd been on My Travel branded ships (Sunbird and Carousel) previously, so we had a reasonably good idea of what to expect. Unfortunately, this cruise didn't quite come up to scratch for a number of reasons.
The ship is smaller with (allegedly) fewer passengers than either of our previous cruises, but at times it did seem a little crowded, especially during the day at sea when... (read more)

The whole Thomson cruise experience was excellent. The Idyllic Iberia, Med Renaissance was our second cruise and our first with Thomson, and it won't be our last. The drinks package was great value for money. The staff were so friendly and very helpful. The food was excellent, with plenty of choice for the 2 week stay (never had the same menu twice). The shows by the Thomson show team were always lively and very energetic. Well done team.
The only bad point was our cabin (301) don't book it... (read more)

The Mediterranean Thomson Cruise was our first time cruising, and we really enjoyed ourselves. The food was available 24 hours, and we had exactly what we wanted. The entertainment was during the day and at night. We really enjoyed some of the shows that were put on.
The cabins were comfortable and kept very clean. If you want to go to sleep and wake up the next day somewhere else, it's the best way to travel, and you don't feel sea sick at all.
There is lots to do, or not do... (read more)
