Ship Facts: Thomson Celebration Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Thomson Celebration Deck Plans
NICE MIXTURE OF DESTINATIONS ON THE CELEBRATION
As with all our previous cruises, this was an excellent holiday. It was our second time of cruising with Thomson but the first on the Thomson Celebration. The itinerary, which is always our main criterion when deciding on a cruise, was a really good mixture of the religious, historical and more laid back holiday resort places.

The flight took place from Doncaster Airport (our first time of using the airport) - the car park is handily right next to the terminal. There were no problems upon arrival at Paphos Airport or with the coach transfer to Limassol. Apart from the lack of opportunity to actually wander round Limassol and the slightly disappointing weather, everything else was first class on this cruise.

The places visited were interesting. The food on the ship was excellent. The entertainment was really good and varied, and included two first-class comedians. The waiters were polite and friendly. As it was an old ship, there was a more-or-less constant slight vibration which you could feel and of course the decor wasn't up to the standards of newer ships - but these were minor points compared with everything that was good about the cruise.

Places visited at towards the end of the cruise were Didim (pleasant enough to wander around), Rhodes Town (where an excursion to Felimeros is worthwhile, as there are good views from there, and where a pleasant walk around the moat of the Old Town can be undertaken) and Marmaris (where you walk past the marina, along the prom and into the Old Town).

There were no problems with disembarkation and we were allowed back on the ship for lunch after visiting Marmaris. The trip to the airport was in the afternoon.
