We have been Thomson cruisers for many years and our 2nd on this ship.Firstly we must say the organisation from airport to ship is a far better way than previous years where as soon as you check in luggage you don't see it till it arrives ... Read more

We chose this cruise mainly because it was child-free. Apart from a bit of a wait to embark onto the Celebration, everything went smoothly. Sulkhan, our cabin steward, had everything prepared and was more than happy to show me how to work ... Read more

Have cruised with Thomson before (Baltic on Spirit) and found it to be excellent value for money. Ships may be a bit older but they are very comfortable and the cabins have all had plenty of room. Had an outside deluxe this time which ... Read more

This was our first cruise, reading DFGstocktons ? review would put some people off, please ignore that review, Thomsons could not be blamed for the rain, and if all inclusive you still had 103 drinks to choose from. We thought everything ... Read more

The main reason for choosing this cruise was the visit to Venice (and the added benefit of it being adult only). Everything happened exactly as planned - luggage handed over at Newcastle airport appeared outside the cabin within a couple ... Read more

This was our 2nd cruise but the first time on the Celebration. The ship itself is a bit old but is in relatively good order and is spotlessly clean throughout, our last cruise ship was the Island Escapes so this was much, much better. ... Read more

We had a lovely week in Montego Bay in the Riu palace, would defiantly give that a 5 star rating. We were advised by Thomson rep to stay at hotel first as we would be disappointed with hotel after the cruise, this I might add was ... Read more
