This was our second cruise and was chosen for the destinations not the ship. We have previously sailed on the Dream. The Celebration, we thought, was just as nice. Check in at Glasgow was great and we next saw our cases in our cabin ... Read more

This was our first ever cruise so we were both quite excited when we came on board. We had booked a suite but we were rather underwhelmed at first sight - not the luxurious experience we thought it might be. There was plenty of space, a ... Read more

My wife and I have cruised before, many time on Ocean Village and we were looking for a reasonably priced cruise with informality. This ship and the cruise proved to fit both these. We took no part in the formal nights, nor did we eat in ... Read more

The Thomson Celebration is a well equipped ship. It is not the newest Ship in the world but with the right itinerary it is perfect for the cruiser on a tight budget. Overall the ship is in a good maintained condition but it is a bit ... Read more

My husband and I had a phenomenal time on Thomson's 'Celebration' cruise- exceeded all expectations- we were so happy that this was our first sea cruise, too! This ship is a small cruise ship yet it is perfectly formed- dwarfed by all ... Read more

Just a quick review.. The ship may be small but she has bags of character and so much prettier than the larger ships that really do resemble a block of flats! Facilities may not be of the same standard either but what we did have were ... Read more

We have just returned from a lovely holiday in the Caribbean aboard Thomson Celebration. We flew out on the Dreamliner and enjoyed the flight. The extra legroom and wider seats really make a difference, after a long flight we still felt ... Read more

Our biggest complaint was with reference to the food onboard. This is the only ship amongst a number of cruises we have taken where we have not wanted to eat! We are not fussy eaters but we really DID NOT enjoy the food offered on this ... Read more
