We have been Thomson cruisers for many years and our 2nd on this ship.Firstly we must say the organisation from airport to ship is a far better way than previous years where as soon as you check in luggage you don't see it till it arrives ... Read more

We chose this cruise mainly because it was child-free. Apart from a bit of a wait to embark onto the Celebration, everything went smoothly. Sulkhan, our cabin steward, had everything prepared and was more than happy to show me how to work ... Read more

Chose this cruise as I was interested in visiting Croatia, also Venice. This was the first cruise we have been on, and was not sure if cruising is really for us, but we decided to giv it a try. Departure from Gatwick went very well, ... Read more

Have cruised with Thomson before (Baltic on Spirit) and found it to be excellent value for money. Ships may be a bit older but they are very comfortable and the cabins have all had plenty of room. Had an outside deluxe this time which ... Read more

This was our first cruise, reading DFGstocktons ? review would put some people off, please ignore that review, Thomsons could not be blamed for the rain, and if all inclusive you still had 103 drinks to choose from. We thought everything ... Read more

The main reason for choosing this cruise was the visit to Venice (and the added benefit of it being adult only). Everything happened exactly as planned - luggage handed over at Newcastle airport appeared outside the cabin within a couple ... Read more

This was our 2nd cruise but the first time on the Celebration. The ship itself is a bit old but is in relatively good order and is spotlessly clean throughout, our last cruise ship was the Island Escapes so this was much, much better. ... Read more

This was our 6th cruise on the Celebration and will probably be our last. It was definitely our worst! On the day of embarkation the weather in Dubrovnik was heavy and constant rain which resulted in most passengers baggage being fairly ... Read more

Our first cruise (previously done a mini cruise to Egypt) and have to say what a wonderful time we had. Our itinerary was slightly different as we flew to Dubrovnik and home from Malaga but covered every port we wished to visit. Its ... Read more

Having already cruised on the Thompsom Majesty last year we were expecting another great experience on the Celebration but unfortunately some much of the cruise was a disappointment. There were some good parts like the quality of service ... Read more

Just returned from the Adriatic Affair on The Celebration. First of all I would give the ship and its crew 100% for everything. The service, cleanliness, food, etc were all up to the mark. The Show Team were better than most TV so called ... Read more

We thoroughly enjoyed our week on board Thomson Celebration and loved the itinerary. I chose this cruise mainly because it included Venice but we were also delighted with Croatia, especially Rovinj and Split. Undoubtedly the ship is ... Read more

We only booked a week as this was our first cruise - it certainly won't be our last! We had a suite on deck 8. From the check in at the airport to our return, the Thomson efficiency couldn't be faulted and was totally stress free! ... Read more

I was a little worried about booking onto the Celebration, having been more used to the larger P&O Ventura. However, the smaller ship and the whole first-time Thomson experience exceeded my expectations. We had a balcony cabin on ... Read more

This was a cruise around the Adriatic with excellent ports stops. Most easily walkable if you were not doing ships excursions. The Celebration is very popular with the UK market but I found it to be way way out of date. Its a very old ... Read more
