You will feel movement occasionally. depends on the weather & if you are traversing somewhere like the Bay of Biscay & the sixe of the ship (bigger the better in my experience). Most of the time it is hardly noticable. If you do not take travel sickness pills with you, the Guest Relations staff will be only too happy to provide you with one or two (one, taken at the time, will invariably cure you & set you straight for the rest of your cruise).

I have been on Legend several times and the answer to your question is that if you hit rough weather even with the stabilisers out there will be pitching and rolling. Some areas of the world are more prone to rough weather but it is a fact of life that any stretch of water can play up. My advice is that you try to get a cabin amidships where the least movement can be experienced and should you not feel well ask for some sea-sickness tablets which most ships provide free of charge. If then you still feel unwell ask for an injection for which they will charge but after a rest period are apparently very effective. I'm lucky and have never missed a breakfast yet even though I have been in Force 10 gales. Good luck, Neil Down.

It is highly unlikely that you will feel much if any movement. If you do feel sick the ship's shop sells exellent pills under the brand name of Bonine (they are the best product I have ever used). I am an appallingly seasick traveller on cross channel ferries etc but have never had a problem even in rough seas on a modern cruise shi.

Thomson Cruise A whole new...

By Brad Smith

Having worked for Thomson for nearly a decade before coming to, I saw the company change dramatically over the years. From the airline purchasing brand new Dreamliner planes from Boeing, to the introduction of exclusive properties to cater for every type of holiday maker.Whilst working there I saw a few minor changes to the cruise side of the business, but nothing dramatic. The ships were always old and small, but customers loved them none the less. Well, that’s changed con...

Looking For School Holiday Cruises?

By Amy Ginder

Amy Ginder's blog

This time of year we have a lot of calls asking for late availability for the school holidays. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but it is very late in the day. Most cruise lines have filled all of their 3 and 4 berth cabins and those that have space will charge you astronomical prices.So what do you do if you are looking to cruise in the school holidays? The answer is book early! Book now for 2018, if you leave it to nearer the time not only will the prices climb but you are unlikely to ge...

 Thomson Cruises have made some changes in recent years and things are really working for them, in the last 5 years they have seen an increase in passenger numbers of 40%, with 20% being in the last year alone.They have always been looked down upon by a lot of customers, although unjustly so as their reviews have always been good. But with older ships and less of the pomp and ceremony of other lines they have been viewed as being at the lower end of the market.In 2016, they made a major ...
