Yes, there are gels/shampoos. You will have a great time - The ship used to be the Airtours "Sunbird" and when she was sold to Thomson's was renamed "Destiny". Sailed on her as both! Many, if not most, of the "Sunbird" crew have stayed with her and the atmosphere they creat, especially in the Dining Room, is fantastic. Only downside for us was hard beds! Mervyn .

Thank you for your answer, We have only done P & O and NCL in the past, I understand the cabins are quite small, we're not worried about that, i have prebooked ours,an outside midships on deck 3. I believe there is 1 formal night on a 7 night cruise, do most people get dressed up? [ I have taken onboard your comment about hard beds, maybe request a matress topper].

Hi sailed on the Destiny three times and also the Emerald twice. People do get dressed up especially when I was aboard this August I found alot more gents in Black Tie! Nine people in our party all ladies waring smart cocktail dresses. But my husband always likes to ware a casual suit with shirt and tie. My 19 year old daughter wore her prom dress and looked great! Its a cheeper way of cruising and your right about the rooms but you are not in them for long. We love Thomson cruising I hope you enjoy it too.
