Thomson Celebration Cabins
There are four main cabin types. Insides and standard outsides are a pretty tiny 147 to 177 square feet; deluxe outside cabins are 208 square feet, and suites range from 279 to 294 square feet. There are no balcony cabins onboard Thomson Celebration.
My cabin was a deluxe outside cabin on Deck 7, mid ship. Deluxe cabins have picture windows and baths (while standard cabins have porthole windows and showers). It was decked out with oak walls and light furnishings, the decor theme of all the cabins. I was particularly impressed with the amount of drawer space. The bathroom was basic, but featured a shower and a bath. A hair dryer was located in one of the drawers. Interestingly, for a British line, one thing was missing – tea-and-coffee-making facilities. However, there was a mini-bar stacked with soft drinks and spirits. Safety deposit boxes are available for £6 per cabin.
There are televisions in the cabins, and though they're not of the flat-screen variety, they showed various films and programmes. And, for those who like to stay in the know, Sky News and CNN are constantly playing. Plug sockets are Continental and U.S. -- so be sure to bring your adapters.
Passengers who reside in suites are eligible for extra perks, such as express port check-in, complimentary pressing service during the first 24 hours onboard, free in-cabin Continental breakfast and the assistance of a concierge to make reservations. Suites feature separate lounge areas with sofa beds, mini-bars, bathrooms with baths and king-size beds.
Thomson Celebration also caters to singles. There are seven single inside cabins and eight single outside cabins. Deck 7 also has cabins adapted for wheelchair users, which at a glance seemed spacious and well-fitted.
Self-service laundry rooms are located on Decks 1, 2, 6 and 7.
Cabin 003 was large and comfortable. The one and only downside it that it has a connecting door to cabin 001 which meant that you could hear noises from them unlike having solid walls which cuts out noises.
Please note this was an adult only cruise great
Ship was being "up-graded" while we were aboard hence wires in cabin for flat screen tv not fitted.
Cabin was better than expected very like a modern hotel room better furniture.

Cabin 200. GReat size with great view. Air con is weak. But my parents in 208 was great. Maybe because we were at the front of ship?! Toilet flushing problems occured on several occasions.
