Ship Facts: Thomson Celebration Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Thomson Celebration Deck Plans
Thompson Red Sea Magic
Wife & I had a flight time from Birmingham at a very civilised 11:40 on Thursday 12 April 2012. Arrival at Sharm El Sheik was 20 min early after a reasonably comfortable 5.5 hour flight.

Immigration into Egypt was the usual nightmare followed by an easy and comfortable transfer to the ship, Thompson Celebration.

First impression of the ship was "small", however the cabin was more than adequate and very clean with the usual "Cruise News", plan of the ship and general information.

Dining was free-sitting in the main dining room which means that you don't have to sit with the same people every evening, which can be a good thing. The self service restaurant was to a much better standard than we have previously experienced on cruises and was also a pleasant dining experience. The food at both restaurants was excellent throughout the cruise. Having taken the "All Inclusive" drinks Package, we were impressed by the quality and quantity of drinks provided.

Activities on-board were OK during the day for those not on excursions and evening entertainment was very good for all tastes and ages, with the usual "Show", quizzes and discos.

There is a children's club, however, we had no children with us so have no clue as to its suitability.

We had no intention of taking any of the excursions and were not disappointed by the entertainment provided during the day, which was adequate for what we wanted and no-one from the entertainment team were "pushy" about taking part. If you said no they thanked you and moved on, which makes a pleasant change.

Disembarkation was very efficient and totally painless.

Overall we both enjoyed our holiday and agree that our overall opinion of the week is - OUTSTANDING!
