Absolutely brilliant!!!!!!!!!!!!!! All the staff were very friendly and cheerful.Food was excellent and the rooms were kept spotless.As i only went full board i deposited £400.00 towards my onboard account to cover the cost of mine and my daughters drinks .Drinks are near enough the same price as they are here so it doesn't cost a fortune.Thought i would have to try and remember what i spent but every time i used my card they issue you with when you board it shows the balance of your… Read Full Review

First of all, many,many thanks to Stacey at Thomson shops Portobello High street Edinburgh. Stacey kept us informed, gave us good advice on the best cruises and keanest prices, thanks Stacey we will be back.
The flight was great and comfortable from Glasgow to La Romana, we were on board the Thomson Destiny within 40 mins of landing.
The cruise was fantastic, I defy anyone who cannot find food that they can eat!! It was varied and of very high quality. In the seven seas restaurant the service… Read Full Review

This was our first cruise and we loved it. Yes the ship may be a bit faded, but the staff, the food and the atmosphere more than make up for it. Whilst the cabins are not the smartest, they are perfectly adequate and are kept immaculately tidy and clean by the cabin staff, who are excellent. We spent no time at all in the cabins - why would you?
The waiters in the Seven Seas Restaurant are fantastic, so helpful and friendly. They sing, do magic tricks and generally do everyting they can… Read Full Review

This was our first cruise and i'm so glad that we picked Thomson Destiny as our ship to go to the Caribbean. In our group there was my mum and my auntie(44)my cousin(27)his fiance(21)my brother(13) and myself(16) as you can see a large age range.
We had seperate inside cabins on deck 2 and we were placed next door to eachother, the cabins were small but practical and kept clean by the lovely cleaning staff who were friendly and said hello everytime they saw us. We also had the delight of… Read Full Review

This is our third cruise, but had been warned not to expect luxury, so we wern't disappointed. Cabins are small, but not too much of a problem. Staff very helpful and pleasant. Met some lovely people on board, did our own trips which we really enjoyed. Our only complaint is the inconsideration of some passengers, who would use 2 seats to sunbathe, whilst others could not find one! Maybe the staff should address this, but overall enjoyed out time away… Read Full Review

Just returned from 2 weeks cruising the Caribbean on Thompson Destiny. Excellent value for money, especially if you have the all inclusive package. All drinks are branded names, no problems with getting served. Fantastic staff always cheerful and extremly helpful. Great entertainment, well done to the entertainment staff.
We didn't do any of the Thomson excursions, at every port there were local excursions at a fraction of the cost of Thompsons.
Yes the cabins are small but provide good… Read Full Review

Very impressed with the whole cruise.Great value for money.Happy crew,happy ship.Excellent food at whatever time you wished to eat.Hygiene standards excellent.Have never before been on a cruise where there were no complaints from staff about either salary or hours worked.Destinations were all different and interesting.
The only criticism we heard was the size of the cabins,but really you spent so little time in the cabin that as long as you kept it tidy it was fine.Well done Thomsons… Read Full Review

This was our first cruise on Thomson Destiny's Coral Islands and Caribbean gems cruise and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We travelled round the Carribean on the Destiny for two week 22/02/09 - 8/03/09.
The ship is old as people have stated but they have attempted to modernise areas of it. We have nothing to compare it to and thought the whole ambiance was great.
The Restaurant food was excellent and the staff couldn't do enough for you, which makes such a difference. Service with a smile… Read Full Review

Had a wonderful cruise around the Caribbean on the Destiny 1 -7th March and then a weeks stay at the Palladium in Bavaro Dominican Republic - returned home Monday16th. We have stayed at this hotel three times before and knew we would have a brilliant time, although the entertainment is not as good as on the Destiny - in the Caribbean the entertainment is very different. We have returned home very relaxed. We cannot wait to book the next one - with Thomson of course!… Read Full Review

The Thomson Destiny, Coral Islands and Caribbean gems cruise just exceeded all our expectations. As a group of seven, five of us had cruised before, with two novices! It was great not having to go into the airport in the Dominican as we walked round the side and all boarded coaches (no arrival or departure tax is payable for cruise passengers) There was a delay as the coaches were staggered and with no one to explain why, it seemed to me like some people were getting irriated. However this was… Read Full Review

The staff were great, efficient and courteous. The entertainment staff were the best we have seen, this was our 4th cruise. Congratulations Thomson they made our 6 days transatlantic crossing enjoyable as there was certainly enough to keep us occupied. Everything about our holiday was really memorable and we loved all the ports of call but the "icing on the cake" was our last stop Catalina Island when they really exceeded any expectations - the organisation was brilliant although we believe… Read Full Review

I loved the Thomson Destiny ship. The staff were great, the food was great and the children had the best holiday ever. Love the smoking policy, same as the UK. No bad points. We have just rebooked to go back on this ship. we loved ever bit of it. Last cruise with this ship was on the MED, now we are on the Carribean cruise, we are very excited to go back… Read Full Review

Thomson if you read this do yourself a favour and dump Dominica Republic as the airport cannot handle the amount of people arriving and departing from your cruise the Destiny it was murder all 5 flights delayed because of lack of staff ,and no reps from Thomsons anywhere at the airport. This was so badly organised, we few back to Gatwick 2 hrs delay still refueling plane as we were boarding and only food on board for 100 people… Read Full Review

Tropical Atlantic cruise on the destiny. First time on this ship. Maybe their biggest, but no where near as nice as the celebration. Staff are much better on the celebration. some on the destiny never smiled. Cabins are small, storage is useless, no where to hang a dress neatly. Thomson have always provided one smoking bar. Now only outside smoking is allowed. The outdoor bar shut at 4pm while we were at sea 6 days. Bad weather and wind made getting a smoke a Artic affair. Once in Carribean it… Read Full Review
