I must admit, I never fancied a cruise but went with my in-laws, (this was their 7th cruise),it was brilliant, you wake up in a morning, somewhere different, we went to Barcelona, Toulon, Sardinia, Naples, (pompei was amazing), and perlemo. We cruised on Thomson Destiny. You can have a cooked breakfast until 11.30, so if you want to have a lie in you can, then lunch is at twelve until 3.30, also there was a seperate bbq on the go if you just wanted a quick bite if you had been off the ship on a trip. If that isn't enough 3.30 until 6pm you can have snacks and cakes and a cup of coffee or tea, then it all starts again until 2am with your evening meal, with a choice of waiter service in the dining room,(they can't do enough for you), or you can go to the buffet in a different dining area. The staff were fantastic, the entertainment was top class, the cabin wasn't bad I thought, (inside) but I am only 5ft so it maybe was easier for me than my husband. If we would change anything we would upgrade to a larger cabin, but to put it in perspective the cabin was like a caravan, but as we only slept and showered in there it wasn't too bad in my opinion.
If anyone reading this has any reservations, DON'T!! You will love it.
You can sunbathe all day, or you can go to the gym, join in all of the activities that are going on, literally, whatever floats your boat!!
If you do book, have a good one,I will be doing it again next year.
