Ship Facts: Thomson Celebration Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Thomson Celebration Deck Plans
Not magic star dust in Safaga.
We have been on Celebration several times and did this Red Sea cruise about 2 years ago. Overall the ship met our expectations and the entertainment, especially the shows, were of a high quality. We also enjoyed the comedian. Food is varied and of a good standard and staff go out of their way to be pleasant and helpful.

As we had done the excursions on our last trip we stayed on board to sun bathe and chill out. Thank goodness for the library as I read ten books but opening times could be more flexible( only 1 hour in the morning and the same late afternoon).

The cabin was ample for our needs with plenty of storage space. The shower area could do with a revamp and a door instead of a curtain would be an improvement. I think the hairdryer was updated as it dried my hair quickly.

We knew that the Egypt ports would be boring as nowhere to go if on trips but parked next to a cement factory in Safaga caused everything and everyone to be covered in a film of dust. Not good for breathing in! A trip to El Gouna would have been a good option as we didn`t want to see Hugharda.

There was a problem with cocktails in the Broadway Lounge (no alcohol one night, no salt twice but in the Horizons bar everything was perfect.

I was concerned that a young child 3 or 4 years old seemed to be allowed to roam without supervision near the deep pool and in the theatre. All other children were well behaved and supervised but this poor child could have drowned or tripped a dancer. This must have been noticed by staff who needed to be proactive in addressing the parent`s behaviour.

Overall a pleasant break for winter sun and good value.
