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

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

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

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
