Thomson Spirit has an excellent variety of very good quality food available all the time. The Lido is the buffet restaurant and always has food available from breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner, late night buffet and then....food during the night! Lots of variety and they have theme nights too like Mexican or Indian.But...why not try the Compass Rose restaurant just once- not too formal but waiter service and the waiters are brilliant and...they entertain you during dinner. Also there is a poolside grill serving the usual- pizza, burger, hotdogs, but also does chilli, jacket potato etc- quite nice. Then once a week there is an on deck BBQ which is delicious! Then in the Chef's corner, outside the Lido there is always a particular dish available during lunchtime- in other words...food is excellent and be prepared to put on weight! Enjoy your cruise!

Thanks for your helpful reply. Sounds ideal.I may try the Compass but I do generally prefer flexibility. Nrver been on Thompsons but reviews seem positive so we have booked 2 next year.

Forget to mention that if you do want to go to Compass Rose it is not set times- you can go anytime and the Maitre D is excellent at keeping queues down- if there are only 2 of you he will also get you a table for 2 if you dont want to share. We have just come back from Med cruise on the Spirit for the 4th time and had an excellent time so I am sure you will too.

I would say that the place is most famous for the Casino and also the Grand Prix. The main districts are all wit...

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...

Its Launch time again

By Lee Johnson

Lee Johnson's blog

I have been in the cruise industry now for around 16 years and one thing that I always remember is the excitement over P&O Launch. Normally P&O would release their programme for the coming year in March / April time (May at one time I recall). The new Programme or brochure would normally be for Sailings April to end of March (so this launch following the traditional path would normally be April 18 to March 19 for instance).BUT there has been a dramatic change to them whereby they ac...
