Burnett is right- when last on Thomson (2008) the policy was okay to use their beach towels ashore, they are usually adequate but return them to your cabin for steward to exchange for fresh ones. We've never seen anyone think of taking white towels- that's not fair! You'll really love the Caribbean- try snorkelling, but consider buying gear locally due to weight restrictions.

You are given yellow towels in your cabin for swimming in the ship's pools. They are changed daily if you use them. It is possible to take them ashore, but you will be charged if you lose them. Why not buy a new one locally?

We Have just retured and had a fantastic time, we packed 6 beach towels and never used one of them. Everyone on the ship took the free pool towels to the beach and this are changes each day for you. Hope you have a great time the beaches at Antigua and Barbados were fabulous.

I agree with you, when on the beach, you could spot thomsons for their bright orange towels. I must admit to being a bit surprised about this as it is a practise that is normally frowned upon, but it was perfectly acceptable on Destiny, irrespective of how many mohitas had been consumed the previous night.

14 Years Old..Thinking about U...

By Ella Chapman

My head is spinning thinking about Universities for my 14 Year old son.Its far too early in my opinion to be thinking that far ahead.

Some Universities do require a Modern Language at GCSE Level, which my son is not keen to do.However, my concern is that my son will not be attending University for 5 years, what if he changes his mind with what he...

Two Night Taster

Recently my parents celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary, which happened to fall 2 days before Christmas. Up until a day before their anniversary I was stuck on what to get them. The only thing I knew that they would both really love is a cruise, as they are yet to experience a cruise and my mum has been wanting to do this for years. My dad is ex Royal Navy, so he was keen too, especially to see what sea would be like as a guest rather than working and also a bit more glamour than the sh...
