Ship Facts: Thomson Celebration Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Thomson Celebration Deck Plans
Holy Land & Aegean - Turkey Israel Greece Cyprus

Generally speaking excellent value. Nice clean cabin, well kept by steward, tea and coffee making facilities and fridge (make sure you take decent teabags, unless you like Liptons!). We paid extra for the drinks package, which was well worth it. It includes all alcoholic drinks but some branded ones such as Baileys, but you do get a discount on those.

Having been on cruises before with P&O, Fred Olsen, Royal Caribbean, there is quite a big difference. This cruise was much more relaxed (one formal night a week, which we didn't join in with), and more basic surroundings, although some may prefer something a little more upmarket. Different types on this cruise (think bare chested men with heavy gold necklaces and tattoos) and next time I would avoid half term - mainly because of parents who think it's ok to let their children run wild. P&O is the best in my opinion but this was a different sort of experience.It was a fun, enjoyable and relaxing cruise and much more casual than others I have been on but this has its merits - it depends what you want.

Could highly recommend day trips to Nazareth and Jerusalem. All ports great choices.

We preferred the food in the buffet (unlike P&O) and if you timed it right (dinner after the show rather then before) then the buffet was fairly quiet.

Certainly extremely good value and I would go with Thomson again - avoiding half term or school holidays of course
