Ship Facts: Thomson Celebration Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Thomson Celebration Deck Plans
Good old ship

Just got home after a week on board this ship. We have sailed with P and O on a previous trip so our first impressions were not good. The ship is not the massive I personal floating hotel but more a mid range hotel with character . In places she does look tired and the continuous vibration ( she has long propellor shafts unlike modern ships which do not, ) which is disconcerting but after day two we were used to it. The constant cleaning and hand Gels was good to see but always having wet hand rails wasn't always what I wanted.

The food was good throughout the seven day stay.

Cabins were fine

Sea sickness, poor weather and not getting into certain ports due to weather, are not the fault of the ship or holiday. It is a smallish ship so if you do suffer from sea sickness try to get a cabin near centre of the ship as there is less movement there. We ended up using the ships own pills which worked fine for us.

Now the good points.

It was nice not to be the youngest people on board which meant that there was a more party type atmosphere on board.

The dress code is not formal at all , I did wear a shirt at night but this was not enforced. This is a personal thing.

The crew were fantastic and couldn't do enough for you. Always smiling, even with a boat load of moaning Brits on board. Our cabin was made up during the day and then again when we were out at night. Fantastic. A fellow passenger described them as mear cat, as when you opened your door a head would pop out to see if all was well.

The entertainment was far better than the P and O cruise, and the house band were brilliant.
