The answer is generally yes. Thomson prices are fairly competitive and they offer an all inclusive upgrade so there is no 15% on drinks bills. If you want a drink in the cabin before going to dinner then enjoy but if you are like a small minority who fill soft drinks bottles with alcohol and drink it during the evening in the bars then please be aware that most of your fellow cruisers will notice this and comment on it.

We have recently been on the Thompson Spirit sailing from Palma. I found out from another passenger that you could take alcohol on board so I went back ashore to the terminal and bought brandy (my favourite tipple) but I needn’t have bothered as the following day whilst looking in the small ships shop that I could buy it at a cheaper price. We have cruised many times & I always declined considering Thompson cruises but my wife found the cruise at the last minute. We had a suite although the decor needs a little modernisation it was spotless, the staff throughout were very friendly and their smiles were genuine not the standard paid for sneer that you encounter on some cruise lines. The food was exhalant and the bar prices very low compared with other cruise lines (red wine from £10 a bottle). Smoking is outside only and cigarettes can also be bought on board in 200 cartons or 20’s in a couple of the bars. Have a great trip.

Two nights on Indy..

By Alison Ranaldi

Last week I spent two nights on the newly revamped Independence of the Seas.We sailed from Southampton in glorious sunshine to Le Havre and back. This was my third time on board this ever-popular ship and I was keen to see the changes to her after a big refit. We had a balcony cabin on deck 9 which had everything we needed for a comfortable break. I’m not generally a fan of mini-cruises. They offer an excellent way for someone like myself to see the ships but I do not think they are a g...

Royal Princess

By Emily Watts

Emily Watts's blog

 Last week I was lucky enough to experience Royal Princess which was also my first time on a Princess ship. It was everything I expected and more. as soon as we got on board I was impressed with the decor and the grandness, it really is a beautiful ship. Our cabin was located on Baja deck B215 which had a balcony and for two sharing it is very spacious. Princess prides themselves on the beds and it was probably one of the most comfortable ones I have ever slept on. After embarkation, we...
