Dont let them put you off the cabins were great, the food was great tea & coffee in the lido was ok but the ship was fantastic along with the very good service from a friendly crew.

Take a travel kettle - we did, saves a lot of bother especially if you want to drink tea/coffee in your cabin any time day or night. Rough seas are not condusive to carrying cups of liquid from deck to cabin!

Yes there was tea making facilities when I went on Thomsons Destiny. Had tiny cabin shared with friend and we had kettle and cups etc the usual. Lovely in morning nice cup of tea or coffee. What does "this level of cruising" mean written by Richard Okill, so now cruising has "classes" how sad? cruising is fun its for everyone thats why there are many different types of accomodation/prices and yes when "slumming it in windowless cabin" you get lovely tea facilities and Richard should hang head in shame..

As you will see above, no tea and coffeemaking services avaiable but you can get room service, approx £1.50 plus a small tip, buffet a long way to go for your early tea, we found it a very good service, most ships do not do tea and coffee in staterooms now due to health and safet.

No, sadly there is barely enough room for a kettle in the cabin!! It is freely available in the Lido thoug.

Single Supplements Not The Fau...

Freddie Moser's blog

After having my head bitten off yet again this week for simply doing my job, I thought it was high time to set the record straight about prices and supplements for single travels and inform people of the role of the agent, i.e me.In the cruise industry we have many guests in the higher age range, down to the relaxing nature of a cruise, the luxury element, and a lot of the time, because the non-retired can’t afford the time or the money during their work schedule to take in a cruise.Nat...

Gemma Coles's blog

Well it is finally time for my holiday. I am off to Poole in Dorset tomorrow to stop at Rockley Park for 11 days. I am really looking forward to a break and spending some time with my husband. We have had a busy year so far and as I am heavily pregnant with our first baby due in August we haven’t been away at all yet this year. It has been so hot the last few days with the heatwave we had and now the weather is turning and the forecast isn’t great for our time away. I wouldn&...
