Ship Facts: Thomson Celebration Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Thomson Celebration Deck Plans
Thomsons? Very Poor now for your bucks!

This was our 12th Thomson Cruise and our fifth on the Celebration. Our cabin was on deck 4 outside had good wardrobe and drawer space and newly tiled bathroom and new carpet. The cabin boy was as good as ever and was very pleasant. We did pre book our cabin so knew exactly where we would be on the ship. The Platinum upgrade was not really noticed, as said been on this ship before.

Embarkation and disembarkation went smoothly but the airport journey was 1 1/2 house each way.

We mostly ate in the Meridian restaurant for breakfast and diner. Service was fairly good with an average choice off the menu but a steak is now 9.99 extra?? The quality of the food was quite good but no where near as good as other years The waiters were good and were friendly.

The main gripe was the AI and the service in the bars. It seems they have cut back on what's All-inclusive and also the staff. When you went into any bar it took 15-20min to be acknowledged and the same to get a drink. A big let down now. Water seems to be on ration and having to wait upto 20mins to get it. Water water everywhere but not a drop to drink,, only 40dg outside? The staff use to be very sociable and you got served within 5mins but not now, what's going on Thomsons?

The ports of call were good Istanbul, Mytilene, Piraeus, Mykonos and Kusadasi we did our own thing in ports.

We went to most of the shows in the Broadway and most were good and the crew show was brilliant. The comedian's jokes who we had seen before was good, Buster he was quite good with the banter with the audience and his stories. The entertainment team appeared to be going through the motions and seemed to be samey every day.

Not Platinum No way and not the Thomson Cruise that we had had been use to in the past. So a let down with our expectations from past Thomson Cruises.
