Ida & Neil Down - Answered a Question by mcguire (18 Sep 07 16:41)

Mr. McGuire, Thank you for the acknowledgement but I'm afraid I am going to disappoint you. The only time I have seen Thompson cruise ships has been when we have been in the same port as them. I must admit to a preference these days to the more modern ships and Thompson ships are not that new....sorry....Neil Dow.

Yoiu're more than welcome, Mr McGuire I have been to the Canaries but unfortunately only to St Cruz de Tenerife, a port which I do not like a lot. The time after next we are going to the Azores and this will be new for us. Madeira we love and my suggestion for there is to get the ship's bus to town go on to the funicular and go up to the gardens at Monte. Good sailing.....Ida and Neil Dow.

Thompsons ships may not be that new but having sailed on the Emerald last year old ship yes but what a ship when we went through a storm on our way to Croatia.Very stabilised. The Thompson Destiny out of all the other ships I have sailed on P&O Carnival Royal Caribbean etc Thompson still have that special touch,not glitzy but fantastic time you will have!!!

Still my favourite cruise to date.I am booke...

After an amazing trip to Lapland and a fantastic Christmas with the family our festivities were cut short as I was taken into hospital just after Christmas. Unfortunately I had to spend nine days there and have emergency operation on New Years day! As you can imagine this was not how I planned to see in the new year but as we all know these things happen and I am very grateful to have been very well looked after and now recovered.I was very well looked after by our amazing NHS, I know they ge...

What No Kisses On My Pillow?!!

By Lily Canderton

Lily Canderton's blog

10 years ago a tradition of the nightly turn down service on ships was a Chocolate Kiss on your pillow but this now seems to be a thing of the past according to a recently returned cruise passengerI hear all the time from passengers that ‘standards are not what they used to be’ with less and less being included and more and more being an added payable extra – Are cruise lines cutting corners just too much?Even the Berlitz Guide author commented that standards are slipping in...
