Great itinerary for classical sites & ports of call. Nightly stage show was extremely entertaining despite many complaints we heard by many other travellers that there was little variety. Long queues at the buffets was a bit of a nuisance and the food on offer was pretty mediocre but the cruise was mostly spoiled by the freedom smokers enjoyed that contaminated many communal areas including the promenade deck. Those who choose to smoke should be isolated to an area whereby other travellers are not exposed to their unsocial habit. Smoke free areas were consequently congested. Outside cabin was roomy and the steward was hardworking and attentive but the bedding and towels were in need of replacement - all a bit grey due to age and over use. Admittedly the ship is more than 30 years old - perhaps it's time she were retired from the fleet. Not sure that I would travel with Thomson cruises again unless they tighten their smoking policy.
