We must be kindred spirits. The answer is not as easy as you imagine. For example we sailed on the Artemis[P and O] expecting to have to suffer fixed sittings and tables.To our delight they have an informal buffet till 6p.m You could theoretically have breakfast,Lunch and dinner there.Even better they opened one side of the area at 7 p.m til 9 p.m and had an amazing choice of buffet meals for 2 weeks with tables to ourselves.On 2 nights they had Chinese nights which did require reservation but this was no problem. A great ship and the informality and tables to ourselves made the trip a joy. My enquiries have revealed that Thompson spirit and probably all Thompson ships are run on similar lines.

My husband and i have recently returned from a cruise on Symphony of the Seas to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary and without a doubt it was one of the best cruises we have done. We arrived in Barcelona on 27th April and had one night at the Onix Liceo Hotel which is centrally located about half way down Las Ramblas on a side street, and is a great location for a pre cruise stay if you are looking for something central.We took a taxi to the port the following morning where the check i...
