we have just returned of the thomson spirit cruise to the pharaohs and promised land,we had a great time.this is our first cruise so nothing to compare with, the cruise liner spirit is a lovely ship with loads to do everyday of the cruise,
the food is first class plenty of variety,you can either dine self cater from a very well presented buffet,or you can be waited on in the restaurant in the compass rose.we decided to eat from the buffet and was highly satisfied.the food is 24 hour and as many drinks of coffee or tea you can get.
you can book the trips on the ship, however we and friends of ours decided to go it alone by taxis.there was plenty of taxis waiting on the port side however better getting the shuttle bus provided by thomson to the centre then haggle the prices for your trips .the taxis we had was ok the driver very helpful he took us were ever we wanted to go also giving us all the knowlege about the places that we visited. thomson said it was not safe for us to go alone, we never encounted any trouble at all,in fact quite the opposite,all the places we visited- we was made to feel very welcome.oh and this was less than half the price and we saw alot more and was not rushed we told the driver how much time we wanted at each place,
