This was our first cruise, and it was the best time we have had together in a long time! The service, food, friendly staff, internet service so we could share our trip with friends and family each day, activities and the shows were outstanding. We loved it!
We were never on the ship during the day because we were on excursions, but when we were on the ship and we wanted to lay out in the sun, we had problems finding chairs and towels. When we did find chairs, we couldn't find a place to lay out. We chose the Jewels of the Mediterranean cruise and the excursions were great, but a tad overpriced for some. For those prices it would have been nice to see more than we did.
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 the other ships as well. One thing is for sure, we will choose Thompson.
