Ship Facts: Thomson Celebration Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Thomson Celebration Deck Plans
Canary cruise (Celebration)

Platinum upgrade means that in cabin 105 when the bed is as a double you have to crawl over the bed or climb over the sofa arm. The 3 seater sofa is too big for the cabin the old 2 seater would have worked better.

As usual the whole ship was kept clean, self service was allowed so no hint of illness. Food was fine in both Meridian and Lido..

The show team were a little weaker than others we have seen.

The extras were pushed a lot. The couple in front of us were offered the drinks package 5 times during the boarding process. The wine packages were pushed in the Lido. Bar staff kept asking if I wanted a brandy with my coffee, I wondered if they had to have so many dockets signed in one day. There was the offer of premium seats in Broadway £9.95 with a glass of sparking wine, £25.00 if booked with a meal in the a la carte Mistrals. £9.95 for a sirloin steak. £13.95 for steak under the stars - it was too windy for many to risk this treat. £59.00 for a behiind the scenes tour and tea with the captain.

The sun bed saving issue has now migrated to the show louhge where I witnessed a 60+ temper tantrum when one guy tried to save seats and another disputed the appropriacy of this. On no ones side but for 50 minutes of your life and a 5 yard move to another table was it worth the aggro, it did not make for pleasant viewing. One of the bar staff defused it very well.

We enjoyed the cruise, we will go again with Thomson but the push for extras is now very obvious.
