So I like reviews to be short sweet and straight to the point. Here goes we book on a Thompson cruise with a trip on the TUI Discovery. We booked quite late so missed the drinks package. First point of note the day excursions off the ship sell out fast. We tried to book 2 trips both sold out within the first 2 days. The thai restaurant is a must again places went fast its worth the £20 extra. On sea days sadly the british culture of putting your towel out on a sun bed at daft o clock in the morning is still in evidence . To the credit of Thompson the staff were removing towels that had been on beds for more that 1 hour. Our cabin 3056 was very clean thanks Maria nice size window shower was a little tight but good water pressure. We had a great comfy double bed the cabin had plenty storage space for our clothes. The food was of a good standard with in my opinion a good choice in fresh fruit and hot and cold meals. We went to the self service breakfast buffet each day I must say that set me up for the day. The evening meals were a toss up between the Italian restaurant and the Alacarte restaurant The entertainment was ok as I have watched much better on other Thompsons Ships again this is my opinion. I was a little disappointed at the cost of the Thompson day trips a bike ride was £35 each 2 hour trip to train ride cost us £156.00. Would I use Thompson Holidays again yes would I do this itinerary of islands again No
