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.
Many thanks for replying-hope you enjoy your next trip.
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.
