We have just returned from a weeks cruise on Thomson destiny on the Mediterranean renaissance cruise and did not enjoy it as we had not 1 nights solid sleep due to the intrusive engine noise and vibration .The crew ( very friendly ) and food and cleanliness was excellent as was the condition of the cabin ,the ship seems to centre all of its service on the seven seas restaurant ,and the rest looked after themselves .I never saw 1 photographer in or on the other areas except were diners in the 7 seas dining area were ( not that I am vain ). We spent most nights listening to the engines and feel parts of the cabin furniture rattle about and could even ring the fitter to tell him that the engine was misfiring and this accompanied by the vibration spoilt the whole tour ,we have done over 4 cruises and found this to be the worst and would not return . We walked around different blocks of cabins and found the noise + vibes worse in other areas so we it could not have been isolated and the smell of fuel often carried around the lower floors ,we stayed on deck 2 midship and this should not affect the quality of your holiday as my money is a good as the next man . The smell of fuel often blew around deck 7+8 on the starboard at certain times and we will pass on our feelings and comments to the local Thomas Cook agent.
