We flew Gatwick/San Juan last year with Thomson (Princess Cruises) and they were excellent. Food and all drinks were included. We have flown transatlantic on scheduled flights and Thomson beat these hands down. I only wish we were with them again when we take our next cruise to the Caribbean in March. The only downside is, because it is a charter flight, you are unable to choose your seats prior to departure, so my advise is check in early. Enjoy your flight and your cruise.

We had excellent Thomson flights back from Barbados to Gatwick in october...Plenty of legroom (I'm quite tall) comfortable leather seats with TV in back of seat in front. Good food and drink was included (but we were P and O cruise) certainly the Premium upgrade would not have been worth it in our case, our service and comfort could not have been improved! A point to note is that our plane actually had the First Choice logo painted on it but was operated by Thomson as Tui now own First Choice....

You will notice the difference when you land in Barbados. No queues for immigration, in fact you don't even enter the terminal building. Straight off the plane and into a bus/minibus on the tarmac and then to the ship. Your luggage will follow and be delivered to your cabin so will arrive sometime after you. Bear this in mind when packing your handbaggage. However considerably better than the queues at US immigration .

Legroom on Thomson long-haul is 33 inches compared with 31 inches on scheduled airlines, so no need to upgrade to premium really.

We've sailed twice with Princess and both times flew with Thomsonfly. The flight was perfectly fine. There was no problem with the seats and legroom. We even try to fly Thomson when we holiday in Madeira each summer as they are so reliable.
