We have flown Premium Economy with Thompson several times and have been satisfied on each occasion. The last time was in March. The food was excellent and also the service. The seats are comfortable and plenty of leg room. If you are reserving seats and want a windows please be aware that seat 7 A does not have a windows.
Me and my partner have just returned from 2 weeks in the Caribbean on the Azura and it was just amazing! I have cruised a little before but it was his 1st time and he loved everything about it! from start to finish the service was fantastic throughout, the food was delicious and couldn't complain about anything.
When we got on-board we went on to find our cabin which was at the back of the ship on Riviera deck, cabin R703 (partially shaded), I was a little sceptical but had nothing to worry about at all. the cabin was very nice- the décor could be a little more updated, the balcony was lovely and it meant when we did have rain showers we could still sit out and enjoy the hot weather and not get wet!
The food throughout the cruise was faultless. we ate most evenings in the main dining room and had a table for 2. they gave us the pager and told us it may be about 30 minutes waiting time, however 5 minutes later and it started beeping. even though it is plated meals in the dining room the food was very tasty and plenty to eat and had a lot of different choices on the menu. One evening we dined in Sindhu, we paid £15pp on the cruise personaliser and It was the best meal I have ever eaten! the service was fantastic and I would definitely eat in there again the beach house was also really nice food, big portions and cost £7.50pp.
The ports of call we visited were Barbados, Antigua (rain all day so was a wash out), Amber cove, St Kitts, Tortola, St Lucia, St Maarten, Martinique and Grenada. My boyfriend absolutely loved St Maarten, we visited Maho beach (the airport beach) in the morning and got there around 8.30am and stayed till around midday. we saw a lot of planes coming in and also one take off which left everyone running after their towels and even someone rolling into the sea! Barbados was lovely we went to the boatyard which for $20pp got you a sunbed, a free drink and a 30minute snorkel with the turtles- the sea here was so calm and clear blue- it was a perfect start to our holiday Tortola was absolutely beautiful we visited Cane garden bay for about $8pp in a taxi/truck from the port. the scenery is beautiful and is a day to remember. the only port we didn't really enjoy was Martinique (it was more like a French city).
Overall, we both had the most amazing holiday and one we will remember and cant wait to look at booking a future cruise!
