Expensive and nasty.

We paid £1,000 a head including Thomson charter flight. We had to pay extra for: • A double bed • Room service including breakfast • Transportation at ports away from their entrances Mainstream cruise lines would not dream of charging for these basics. Ryanair you are being out cheapened! The itinerary had to be reversed for good reason [a public holiday in Jerusalem]. This would have been known for some time but the first time passengers were notified was on arrival on the vessel. This caused a great deal of problems for those that had made independent tour arrangements. Such inconvenience could have been avoided by a simple courtesy of advising customers sooner. Clearly good manners are beyond Thomson.
