Although I have never been in a Butlins camp before, I have seen TV footage and this cruise seemed to match it. On a positive note, the ship was clean and we upgraded to an outside cabin which was impressively large for such a small ... Read more

Afer using cruisecritic forums and trip advisor for months ahead, there were no real surprises. Embarkation and disembarkation quick and efficiently handled by Thomson. The ship, Celebration, was as most people say - dated and in ... Read more

Just returned from our first ever Thomson Cruise. How did it compare to previous cruise ships? Well firstly, and as expected, it wasn't as plush or as large as say P & O, or Princess Lines, but although a lot smaller than other cruise ... Read more

After getting off the plane we collected the cases carrying them to the waiting coaches, then at the port had to drag them in the dark from passport control down steps to the ship ourselves. As we arrived late in the evening we had missed ... Read more

I booked the holiday as I wanted to see Egypt and thought staying on a cruise ship would be safer - it was!! The room - I was surprised that the bed was a double and the room was very spacious. Loads of storage space, flat screen ... Read more

This was our seventh time on a cruise ship and it more than met our expectations. We chose the Celebration on a nostalgic whim having sailed across the Atlantic seven years ago on the same ship when she was called the Nordam and was ... Read more

The ports of call are not attractive and I do not recommend this as a first cruise, we were very disappointed that it was not easy to get off the ship and explore on our own. This is a cruise for people who plan to get off the ship on ... Read more

Thomson Celebration. Red sea. Jan'.10. Flight from B'ham. On Time. Cramped seats, poor meal, should use larger aircraft, to my mind 6 hours odd is longhaul. Embarkation: Smooth, Good. Ship, General: Showing it's age in places but spotless ... Read more

My fiance booked this cruise by chance - we needed a holiday - he'd just come into some compensation, so we thought we'd try something new. We chose the red sea as I am a bit of a sun worshipper and wanted somewhere still hot around the ... Read more
