Great places, shame about Thomson
"We chose this cruise itinerary because of the ports of call and have been on about 10 cruises with Thomson so was really looking forward to it. The ports of call did not disappoint but I feel that Thomson did. We..."Read More

Having cruised with Marella (Thomson) since 2011 we were looking forward to another excellent cruise. We did the same repositioning cruise last year, the only problem then was a squeaking from a ship structure which had broken loose and squeaked to the movement of the ship, we were in the same cabin this year and it had been fixed. The cabin staff were excellent and helpful as usual, in fact ...

Cheap last minute cruise, have been Thomson 4 times before The ship is old but spotless. Cabin on level 1 unremitting noise and vibration, awful even with earmuffs. Avoid rear half of the boat and lower levels. Cabin itself fine, if old fashioned. other: excellent - service on ship, smiles, genuine warmth, organisation on plane transfer embarking and disembarking, price, bar price, tip ...

We were very pleased with our experience on this cruise. It was a last minute break and we only paid £2500 for a deluxe cabin sailing on 20th December for 7 nights, flying from Manchester. Its true that you get what you pay for, this cruise was very good value so our expectations were realistic. The staff were excellent and it is a very friendly ship. The food was great, well cooked and ...

This is the third or fourth time we have been on the Celebration over the past 4 yrs I believe. I feel a bit sorry to say that in all ways this ship has gone down in my estimation and is like a frail old lady. This not to say that we did not enjoy our 2 weeks cruise because we did, but knowing this ship for a good few years it is a bit sad, so see her being dragged round the Med when all she ...

This was our first non-Disney cruise so we were not sure what to expect with regard to the differences between TUI and Disney. Overall we really enjoyed the experience both on the ship and at the ports of call. The Good... The staff on board were all excellent and friendly. This ranged from service staff in the restaurants, the cabin stewards and the entertainment team... not a bad ...

Chose this cruise as provided opportunity to visit new destinations, 3rd cruise with Thomson/Tui/Marrella, and standards of food and drinks have dropped each time. Service and cleanlinesscontinues be of a good standard, although cabins are in need of upgrade. Had the AI package, but didn`t take the upgrade offered at £50 pp, spirits served were LIDL/ALDI own brand standard unless you ...

Liked the itineray of this cruise, and it turned out to be OK. Trip to Etna dissapointing as 4 hrs in Bus without being able to see anything due to weather. Option of cancellation/ altered itineray would have been helpful. Nothing much to see at Ignomemitsa, Greek mainland, ? why does it stop there. Kotor in Montenegro is beautiful, and sail in is stunning Staff very friendly, and ...
