Ship Facts: Thomson Celebration Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Thomson Celebration Deck Plans
great ports of call
We have just returned from "Portraits of the Past" on the Celebration. Firstly we had a problem with our cabin (long story so wont elaborate) and after talking to reception clerk, Chatty, she eventually managed to find us an alternative cabin which suited us just fine. Cabins on deck 7 appear to have been made over a little ... new curtains and bedding and the bathroom was new. Other than that the decor all around the ship is just the same as it has been for the past few years even though it is now operating as a Premium holiday. The base for a kettle had been installed in cabins so any future cruisers will find tea and coffee making facilities in their room.

I had a birthday whilst on board, unfortunately it was on a sea day. Weather was glorious and everyone headed for the decks, consequently every sunbed on the ship was taken. I had a wonderful birthday looking at the sun and sea through the lounge window!!! It seems to me that when the ship is full a tariff could be introduced whereby guests "buy" a bed and are given a token for a set time ... 4 hrs ... and when the time has elapsed, providing tokens are returned the deposit is refunded. This would stop people reserving beds and give everyone a fair chance.

All in all though it was a good cruise. The shore excursions were very interesting - some pretty tiring and not for the faint hearted (Jerusalem and Bethlehem). Food was good, staff and service excellent. Already looking for our next Thomson cruise.
