“The Mediterranean Thomson Cruise was our first time...”

Written on: 10/07/2006 by deisel (1 review written)

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 depending… Read Full Review

Our Family is going on this cruise on 18th August as we didn't fancy a hot beach in Turkey or Greece this year. Any last minute information you can give me would be greatly appreciated. Kids are only 4 and 5.5 years. What to wear, which trips to book (Pompeii is a definate, but should we book trip at £44 x 4 or hire a taxi to take us there?), what is the cost of the all inclusive drinks package (arm band I presume!), is it worth it? We have spent a small fortune for 7 days and would dearly like advice before we go. Many Thanks, Mark.

“We first went on-board the Thomson Spirit...”

Written on: 20/05/2006 by dizzyfizzy1 (32 reviews written)

We first went on-board the Thomson Spirit Mediterranean cruise in June 2003 for our honeymoon. We did a cruise and stay (7 nights Thomson Spirit cruise and 7 nights at 4 star hotel in Majorca). The staff on-board were very friendly and helpful, and they really know how to look after you. The entertainment on-board is 5 star. Some of the shows are West End quality, and the on-board comedians were very funny, and also clean.

We enjoyed the 7 night cruise so much that the Hotel stay was an… Read Full Review

“This was our first cruise with Thomson, and overall...”

Written on: 04/04/2006 by ukbyron (1 review written)

This was our first cruise with Thomson, and overall the experience was excellent. We were very disappointed with the ports of call, as they were generally commercial ports (apart from Sharm) with nothing worthwhile to see - more like Immingham Docks. At Sagafa the ship moored next to a ship being loaded with grain, and the noise and dust was unbearable. I would therefore only consider this cruise if you intend going on the organised excursions to Petra, Cairo, Luxor and the Pyramids etc… Read Full Review

Hi
<br/>
<br/>1. Sorry haven&#039;t cruised the med in October but I guess it should be warm - perhaps cool at night though with the shortening days.
<br/>2. There were wheelchair users on our cruise who seemed to be getting around OK. There are plenty of lifts between the various decks.
<br/>3. The shops on board weren&#039;t great - selling mainly gift items - they were closed whenever we were in port which meant they tended to open late at night !
<br/>Hope that helps.

“We have just returned from our first Thomson cruise,...”

Written on: 11/03/2006 by Sally Jones 1951 (1 review written)

We have just returned from our first Thomson cruise, and it certainly won't be our last.
The whole holiday was wonderful. The staff were fantastic. We especially liked the fact that they could spend time chatting to you, and weren't hurrying you out of the restaurant. We enjoyed sitting with different people every night, at a time we chose, and always had good food and wine. We mainly had breakfast and lunch in the Lido self service but Dinner in the Compass Rose. Although we didn't try… Read Full Review

Can I say we were disappointed with the Thomson reps at the Rey Don Jaimie in telling everyone at the end of the week about their flights at the farewell meeting - there was no mention what those going on the cruise should do and when we asked why he told us we could read it in our itinery - then he said we forgot!

Written on: 03/10/2005 by jmbrady (1 review written)

Overall, the Jewels of the Mediterranean Thomson Cruise was wonderful. It was like a hotel on water. We mainly ate at the Lido because we weren't able to eat lunch until late due to our excursions. So it was nice to have a place open like the Lido. The staff were so friendly, and willing to help out anytime with anything. We loved the shows each night, and the talent of the singers/dancers was outstanding. We would love to go on another cruise with the Spirit, but would also like to try… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/09/2005 by MJB (1 review written)

We were a family group of four and had a very good holiday aboard the Spirit on our first ever cruise. Apart from the few bad points I feel the cruise itself was good value for money. Unfortunately a small minority of passengers did lack decorum. The pool area and Lido deck is where most of them seem to hang out. It attracted those who were happy to talk loudly, in competition with the music, while ignoring their children, who bombed the pool all day and saturated those unfortunate enough to… Read Full Review

There are VERY FEW drinks not included in all inclusive package. Drinks are not expensive and the Lido is outside with smokers section. Apart from that the review is excellent and factual.

Thank you for your review. Drinks prices are harldy ever included in the cruise price. Royal Caribbean is worse as they add a 15% surcharge to all drinks served in the bar. a survery conducted by http://www.cruise.co.uk also found that Royal Caribbean cruise lines charge the highest prices for drinks, so if you like a drink dont cruise with Royal Caribbean.

Med -Fortunate Isles
If your looking for an inexpensive cruise which is good value-this is one of them.
Most excursions were good.
We had a deluxe outside cabin, would have only described it as adequate.
Lots to do, good beauty salon… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/10/2004 by Cato (1 review written)

Overall like most holidays you have a few niggles but even with these would have to say an excellent cruise, stayed our first week at the Bonaire in Cala Bona, week 2 spent on the spirit, cabins more spacious than the Sunbird which was our previous cruise. The all inclusive drinks system is much better in that one card is all that is required to order as many drinks as you want, also ordered cans to take off in ports of call. Entertainment is excellent with an all British cast, 24 hour food… Read Full Review

Overall Spirit is a really friendly ship with good entertainment and some excellent ports of call (Can recommend at Naples for 22 euro return Ferry trip to Capri - In La Spezzia try the local railway card running to the 5 villages in the rocks called Cinque Terre - about 5 euros per person + For those having Sete on the itinerary I recommend you stay onboard - the place was littered with dog droppings everywhere - the French must love their dogs but they haven't heard of pooperscooping)

Thomson Cruises, Spirit - Our first cruise and certainly not our last. 24 hour food !!! A great way to see places and decide if you want to return for longer.
Watch for the organised tours, if you are able-bodied it is better/cheaper to tour the cities yourself (true of all holidays). We have already booked another trip… Read Full Review

Thomson Cruises, Spirit - From boarding we felt extremly welcome. As first timers we were a bit apprehensive, but this was quashed by the staff. Be whatever or whoever you want, do whatever you want, see the Med to whatever extent you feel. This was simply the best experience of my life so far. Would do it all again NOW!!!… Read Full Review
