    Hi, my husband and myself have never been on a Thomsons Cruise, but after reading your review I think we might give it a try. We have cruised with Air Tours (many years ago) we were on the Seawing and the Caroussel Ships but sadly Air Tours no longer do cruises. The last cruise we were on was P&O Ventura and we didn't enjoy it at all. Just too many people on board. We have also cruised with Celebrity and Royal Caribbean, like yourself I am not a cruise snob and I think Thomsons sounds very much like Air Tours ships used to be. Especially when you say the staff are so friendly and helpful. Thank you for your review it has been very helpful.

      Hi folks. I think you will appreciate a Thomson cruise if you have been on Seawing and Carousel. The on-board culture is similar. The ships are all old and a bit worn but the staff are brilliant. We too have been on some big American ships, but keep coming back to Thomson. Doing Scandinavia on the Spirit from North Shields and Greek Isles on Destiny (which we affectionately call Dysentery) in 2012.

      Thanks for letting me know, I've been saying that to husband about Thomson Cruises, I've spoken to a few people and it does sound similar to Air Tours. Thanks again for the tip..

    I am glad you enjoyed your cruise. I am booked on the Celebration next year and after reading some reviews was wondering if I had made the right choice. After reading your review I feel much happier and will now look forward to it.

  • Weems, Rotherham - Commented on this review

    Do not consider this cruise unless you are very fit, as you will be told not to go on the Jerusalem and Bethlehem trip and will be expected to take a very second rate tour called Panoramic Jerusalem. This will give you very poor options for the second day in Jerusalem. If you go on the Tel Aviv tour you may well not get the published itinarary and Thomsons do not want to know about it afterwards.

      Just wondering, is the Jerusalem and Bethlehem cruise the best then. What did you do for currency in each port.

    Japanese night out , with a surprise!

    By Teresa Esberger

    Miyako Teppanyaki , never though you would see me here? What a fabulous experience we were giving by the lovely team @ Silverseas cruises this week. Whenever there is a get together us homeworkers flock to it, especially if its close to home like Birmingham , 15 minutes on the train and off we went with several of the other crew from head office on Tuesday this week.  Its a great atmosphere to go with a group of friends and the chefs were really entertaining. Starter is small but enough ...
