We have just had the most enjoyable holiday on the thompson destiny ship. the staff are all very friendly very helpfull and always smiling. The itinery was good but we went to british virgin isle twice which really once you have been you dont want to go again, but maybe this was because it was a back to back itinery.The shows were really good very entertaing.The choice of food was excellent you was spoiled for choice where to eat and what to eat.The staff work very long hours and housekeeping… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/10/2010

saw some bad reviews but tried to ignore them about this ship. we didnt originally book this cruise but thompson cancelled and this was an alternative. Found this to be a commom theme when talking with other passengers!! Cabin was ok and quite roomy. Food was varied, tasty but often cold even in the ONE restaurant! The alternative buffet restaurant on the top deck left you open to the elements. And of course in october the med wheather can be awful and was for our week. If you you dont like… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/05/2010

Cruise itself was very mediocre. Tiny cabins ,open deck Lido area,poor daytime entertainment. Main problem was that I was ill with gastroenteritis and became extremely ill on the final day and was declared not fit to fly for which I had to pay £137. We were then forcefully advised to go to the private medical centre which Thomson had links with and told all local hospitals would be very poor. As I have cancer my insurance did not cover private but the ship rep kept insisting and arranged a… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/08/2009

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… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/07/2008 by rebekah14lis (1 review written)

This was our first ever cruise and we thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. Our daughter loved everything about it, especially the girls in the KidsZone Club. She was in the Tribe Club and this was very well run. From the moment you stepped on board the Destiny you were treated so well. The staff always have a friendly smile and "hello" for you. The Entertainments Team were amazing and the shows they put on during the cruise were fabulous. Well done to one and all. The food is 24/7 and of good… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/05/2008 by AnneEllis2 (1 review written)

It was our first cruise and I would do it again, only next time won't go ashore in Morocco. For the money we paid which was not a lot it was excellent value. From the very start we were treated very well, very friendly crew & staff.
The food was good and available 24 7. The pools are not that big but served there purpose. Plenty of sunbeds, excellent entertainment, small but comfy rooms we were on deck 3, outside cabin. I was expecting the drinks to be expensive on board but they were very… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/04/2008 by Helen Sharp (1 review written)

Avoid shopping trip in Morocco paid £36 for 2 of us and was told we would spend 1hr in carpet shop. Then we were taken to a market place which was filthy and got hassled so much we were glad to get back on the bus. The guide was very poor and said nothing on the way back he obviously knew every one were disgusted. Having complained all I got was a letter saying this would be passed on to the port tour agents sadly nobody else took the trouble to voice their complaint. This trip was 4.4.o8 to… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/10/2007 by Sharon Garrard (1 review written)

Thompson Destiny was our first cruise and really had a nice time. Sky Bar was a really nice place to chill out and have a pre dinner cocktail. Staff and service 100% Food in Seven Seas very good. Food in Lido above average as well as the other bars. Drinks package great and you get named brands too but you only get Stella as a draft lager. Canned drinks £1 and cocktails around 2.85 if you are not on the drinks package… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/09/2007 by a2bcentral (1 review written)

Overall a good cruise for first time, although I thought it was a bit expensive when you consider you can book a much better ship for the same price or a little more. Never met any bad staff, getting off and on ship very well organised, ship very clean, clipper bar staff the best, also casino staff very friendly, another good point is that 95% of people are British… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/06/2007 by P Luke (1 review written)

I read several reviews which stated the Christmas cruise was below standard, & I heard some regular cruisers complaining about the decorations not being elaborate enough,& the Christmas crackers were not up to standard. In my opinion those are very minor things to complain about.
We thoroughly enjoyed it & so did the people we became friends with. Thomson offered everyone £75 off another cruise & with that & a free drinks package as an incentive. We have booked a weeks stay in Majorca with the… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/02/2007 by Wayne and Jac (1 review written)

We didn't do any organised trips, we prefer to do our own thing. Not a lot of guests enjoyed Morocco, I did just for the culture, Madeira was pretty nice, we went up in the cable car in Funchal and came down in the traditional wooden basket carts. The carts were a very good experience, these guys are masters at doing this, really skillful, just watch for cars coming up the hill. They only take you half way down, then you are supposed to get a taxi, more money, we decided to walk, they warned us… Read Full Review
