There are three restaurants on board. The Compass Rose is open for breakfast, lunch and formal dinners. The Lido is a self-service buffet offering al fresco dining. Guests can enjoy some fine cuisine by booking a night in the Sorocco Restaurant. For a snack or light lunch on deck then visit the Terrace Grill and enjoy a pizza or some barbecue. 

Thomson Spirit has six bars and lounges on board offering a range of relaxing experiences. The Lido Bar allows passengers to drink next to the pool. Raffles is a sophisticated piano bar often frequented for pre-dinner drinks. For those who want to take the party late into the night the High Spirits Bar acts as the ship’s nightclub.


The Broadway Show lounge is the main auditorium. Here guests can enjoy stylish top entertainment including West End-style shows and comedy while the High Spirits Bar acts as a music venue. Guests can place some bets in the Raffles Casino or just relax and enjoy a new movie in the cinema.


The sports deck provides opportunities to exercise with a basketball court, small football pitch and ping pong table. For a little pampering then there are a range of treatments available in the spa or for some quiet contemplation guests can retreat to the card and reading room.
