We chose this cruise itinerary because of the ports of call and have been on about 10 cruises with Thomson so was really looking forward to it. The ports of call did not disappoint but I feel that Thomson did. We had noticed a change ... Read more

I wanted to take my mobility challenged 83yr old dad on a cruise. I needed cabins close together and he needed a walk in shower and a balcony. I needed assistance from plane to ship and back. I wanted a range of easy excursions and good ... Read more

We sailed on the Thomson Celebration from September 29 - October 5 on the Eastern Mediterranean trip. It was our first-ever cruise so we were pretty green and did not have anything to compare it with. First impressions were good, ... Read more

Our flight to Dubrovnik was good and on arrival we were transferred quickly to the ship. Check in on board was fairly smooth but it was a bit annoying having a photographer line you up for photographs when you have just come off a flight. ... Read more

Recommended by a close friend, decided to choose Thomson mainly because of price, and flight from a local airport. The ship 'Celebration' clearly wasn't 5-star, but that didn't matter, the crew & customer service was excellent. As this ... Read more

We knew that we would like to visit Greece again and it was the travel agent who suggested Croatia. It was beautiful and cannot wait to go back. The celebration was a beautiful lady ship staff could not help you enough and were very ... Read more

We chose this cruise because my partner had been on this ship with Thomsons before and really liked it. Embarkation went ok apart from being asked to fill in a health questionnaire on the bus but none of us knew what they were talking ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it went to all the places that we wanted to visit. A real bonus not having to deal with luggage, so efficient. Embarkation was smooth and very friendly. Our cabin was very clean and our steward was very helpful ... Read more

Excellent cruise from start to finish, easy check in, we had an inside cabin on deck 3 which was fine, kept spotlessly clean. Great choice of food, tended to eat in the Meridian restaurant most evenings but tried the Kora La one evening ... Read more

We chose this cruise purely because of the itinerary. It had some of the destinations that we had never visited before. The Croatian destinations were brilliant and well worth a return. However the Celebration failed to live up to the ... Read more

The Cruise was meant to be a 5 star cruise. What a joke. The room had light fittings that did not work, the shower flooded, the "entertainment" was totally rubbish - the only thing funny about the comedian was leaving the ... Read more

We booked as a last minute decision because the itinerary looked interesting. Outbound all good and arrived in our cabin about 2 hours before our luggage which we dropped at airport. Ship is tired. Engine vibrates the whole ship all ... Read more

We have been on many Thomson's cruises, but this was are first cruise on the Celebration. Lovely to leave your cases in uk and then they turn up outside your cabin. Yes, the ship is a little dated, but defiantly value for money. The ... Read more

We chose a cruise-stay holiday as our honeymoon, travelling on the Thomson Celebration 'Grecian Legends' cruise, then spending a week on Kalamota Island - we had the time of our lives. Neither of us had ever been on a cruise before and so ... Read more

First time cruisers for anniversary. Ship a bit dated but service superb. Food very good and destinations varied and interesting. Entertainment first class. Balcony cabin a must as some appear to be a bit claustrophobic. Do NOT pay the all ... Read more

This was the first time we had ever done a cruise and loved it. I have read the reviews on here and i'm sorry but i've never read so many people twist on about small things. If you want perfection go and stay in a 5* plus hotel ... Read more

This was our first cruise and we chose Thomson for its varied destinations that were on our 'bucket list' and many of the places didn't disappoint. Venice, Dubrovnik and Kotor were our highlights. We flew out to Dubrovnik from ... Read more

Having reluctantly returned home from Celebration yesterday, my review is: Flights and transfers to/from ship = excellent. As part of his, seamless luggage transfers too after leaving them at Manchester to the ship, and vice versa. Room on ... Read more

Loved the itinerary and overall have always loved Thomson ships but this was the first time on The Celebration and in our opinion it was not up to the standard of The dream and even the old Destiny fared better. The staff are amazing ... Read more
