Hi Thanks for your reply I am not saying I did'nt enjoy my cruise I have been on Destany at least 6 times. I had no problem with staff or food and as usual the entertainment was great. I hope they will do is carpet where it's frayed out side the dinning room also the deck in some places is rotting.The steamer chairs have been replaced so how about the sun beds. it all needs a general update. If it went for a 3 week refit thay wasted their money.

We did the Colourful Coasts cruise departing the boat on 30th November at Tenerife. Had agreat time. We understood that the Destiny was sailing that day to Marseille for a 3 week refurbishment so she should be llooking better now.

Returned from the destiny after week cruising over xmas, very very disappointed. Glorified ferry comes to mind and "butlins on sea" very poor service from staff with a "robotic" approach and the food certainly did not meet the standads of previous cruise on Carnival miracle. As for the cabins well, so glad it was only a week. Ship definatly needs considerable improvement to get it to acceptable standard for the price of a cruise.

It's Thomson so you get what you pay for - all the ships are 'old' and are bound to be tired. Would not fancy the crossing over to the Caribbean on one (they probably fly you over) but went over on P&O Aurora, 22 nights there and back and never felt the ship move... Thats the difference!

How Much?

By Gail Ryan

How Much?Last week, out of the blue, I woke up on Friday morning with horrendous back pain.I tried to brave it out, taking pain killers and clamping a hot water bottle to my back! but nothing was working. I am not one for going to see my Doctor, in fact, before my visit on Friday, I had not been in over 2 years, so imagine my shock when I was given my prescription and my Daughter went to the Chemist to get it filled – 25.00!!I admit, I was vaguely aware that the costs of medicines had ...

Riviera Drinks Packages & S...

By Jill Johnson

Jill Johnson's blog

I along with a lot of people like to enjoy myself when on holiday and fab news (I think ) for all of their 2018 cruises with Riviera they will be offering drinks packages and cleverly planned too. With most River Cruise Lines drinks are included with Lunch & Dinner as standard, if you are a drinker or not and include Wine, Beer & Soft Drinks. However often my clients will tell me they dont drink or one of the party drinks and the other one doesn’t so this is false econom...

I love to get feedback from my clients good or bad, this also gives me an insight to what people have experienced especially if I have not been to that part of the world before. Mrs J & Mr M T have recently returned from a fantastic South American trip sailing on the Crown Princess. They emailed me as they travelled which was fab and have also sent me photos – thanks to them we can share this amazing trip! Busy on arrival at Buenos Aires port but as platinum members we went strai...
