Ship Facts: Thomson Celebration Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Thomson Celebration Deck Plans
Lovely destinations...but beware deck 1 outside cabins
We sailed from Marmaris Turkey in September 2011, on the Thomson Celebration. The destinations were fantastic, the highlight was Jerusalem and Bethleham. Well worth the money on the Thomson trip. It was very well organised and the tour guide was well informed.

We booked late and had a cabin on deck 1/2. We like an outside cabin, so we paid £84 for an outside. What a waste of money as the cabin we were allocated on deck 1 was right on the water line, and as we sailed along most of the time it was below water. So we saw nothing out of it.

When we were in dock we faced a brick wall (the quay). It was about 3 inches from our porthole and we had to have our light on all the time. We felt we had been deceived as this is not pointed out on the website or in the brochure.

Our shower in the cabin needed re-grouting. Also the water machines in the Lido restaurant had been taken away, and you have to ask for water. There is very little fresh fruit available.

Some evenings it took two hours for us to have our dinner in the restaurant as the sevice was so slow, due to there not being enough staff.

We thought that Thomsons had been having a costcutting excercise since we cruised with them last year.

I still think that Thomsons is good value for money, if you can get a deal, but I think they need to be careful with all the competition on the high sea!!
