Have you not bothered to see what you are getting for your money BEFORE you booked? The Thomson cruises brochure will tell you exactly what you can expect, and have some photos! Happy cruising.

I have been on this ship but I was unable to look in the cabin and the photos dont do credit .

How do you know. If you have been and seen it in the flesh why ask .

I still cannot come to terms with the fact that you booked the most expensive cabin on the ship without knowing what you were getting, especially in comparison with other ships. It doesn't even have a balcony, but here goes! The Presidential Suite of the Thomson Spirit which is on Eagle Deck is Small by comparison to suites aboard many other ships, and measures 464 sq. ft (43.1 sq. meters). It is located on the port side of the uppermost accommodation deck. There is a king-sized bed, walk-in closet, wet bar, study and dining areas, television, VCR, and stereo system. The bathroom includes a whirlpool tub, double sink unit, and a separate powder room. I hope this goes someway to making you feel a little more justified in your blind booking. I presume that you must have been offered a very good deal so, happy cruising.

In reply to your comments we have sailed on the Spirit before but could not have a look in the cabin but I was told it is 1st class luxury. we will be celebrating our golden wedding on the days on board and we do love sailing on the Spirit.

You dont need a balcony to have luxury as we know been on over 22 cruises most with balconies which you cant use if the weather is inclement anyway !

Fancy a Movie Night in or Away?

By Haydn Jones

There is nothing my family love more than cuddling up of a Sunday night , curtains closed, eating microwave popcorn and watching a movie. Its become a Sunday night tradition in our house. Although there is something my two boys love slightly more – movies under the stars on a cruise. We often end up missing the shows and evening entertainment, because for them this is the perfect treat. Sun loungers, blankets, hot chocolate and even pop corn and pizza bought to you whilst watching a fil...

He Cannot Be Serious...

Anthony Burke's blog

Well the day has come and gone. As you know from my previous blog the big day has come and gone. And Im officially 40! Do I feel any different? Not at the moment but lets see if this whole ‘life begins’ is true…..On a more serious note I couldnt believe the news I read that disgraced ‘Captain Coward’ Francesco Schettino made a statement saying after arrival at his jail cell – he would cope with jail and start by going back to being a ‘ship boy’ ...
