I have done many cruises but not Thomson but many royal caribbean but my good friend always does Thomson and I cannot understand why. You have everything on royal new ships, great food, lots to do - Americans really know how to treat you well. what are their ratings on their berlitz guide.

If you have not cruised before you will be happy enough, especially if you are highly social and like a drink (which is heavily promoted at all venues). As an experienced Cunard passenger I found the absence of quiet space and the holiday camp atmosphere distracting which is not to say that the crew dont try to keep you happy - it is the additional Thomson entertainment staff who like to keep things going.

I have travelled with Airtours & thomsons cruises a number of times one of these ended up on holidays from hell, we were never offered any compensation for not visiting any ports for five days and our lives were in danger in a force 16 at sea. I have cruised with thomsons since but have just been on the Royal carribean Navigaitor of the Seas for 11 nts in the Baltic, returning 16th June 2007. I will never go on a Thompsons cruise again, the whole cruise was far superior my advice is dont waist your money with thomsons and go on a real cruise with Royal Carribean.

Hi, we have been on princess/rci etc many times. we went on the island escape and a my travel ship(cant remember that name). these ships are hiddeous compared to rci. i hope you have not yet booked. the best comparison i can give you is they are the difference between booking the ritz(rci/princess) and booking butlins (thomson). Sorry to sound so glum but i would not recomend these ships. we are a family of 4 , kids are now 10/12, they were 8/10 when we went on island cruises. we have since been back on the voyager a few times and are booked for the freedom at christmas.if you are choosing thomson for money reasons then go on ''. its an american site and because of the weak dollar you can get a really reasonable deal with rci although you will have to get your own flights. i use this site and pay for the cruises in dollars, which saves a lot of money. good luck!

Hi Fulton We have cruised on some nice ships, and we had a week on Thomson Celebration last year and as you can guess Thomson is not in the same legue as Celeb's P&O Hal etc, but for what we paid it was very good value, and about 70% dressed for dinner, the food was good with lots of choice and in some areas it was better than the Arcadia and we enjoyed it.
