We were unsure what to expect for our first cruise but the experience with Thomson was fantastic from start to finish (except the flight home)! We travelled as a couple (25 and 26 years old) and were unsure what to expect as we knew ... Read more

This was our first ever cruise. Most people always recommended cruises, apart from the people we spoke to on this ship who would also never go on the Majesty again. We know next year this ship will be finishing but if you want luxury, good ... Read more

We chose this cruise by sheer chance, having tussled for weeks with different options for a celebratory holiday for our 40th Anniversary. We were not to regret the choice. While the destinations varied in the degree of interest which ... Read more

SHORT VERSION Thomson Spirit is an old ship but with a fantastic crew, great food and offers very good value – including an “all inclusive” option which includes house wines, some beers and standard spirits. All prices ... Read more

We chose this cruise itinerary because of the ports of call and have been on about 10 cruises with Thomson so was really looking forward to it. The ports of call did not disappoint but I feel that Thomson did. We had noticed a change ... Read more

Recommended by a close friend, decided to choose Thomson mainly because of price, and flight from a local airport. The ship 'Celebration' clearly wasn't 5-star, but that didn't matter, the crew & customer service was excellent. As this ... Read more

This was our first time on a cruise, and was a little nervous as I have Crohn's disease and suffer with sea sickness. We booked this as a package 7 night cruise with 7 night stay. We got married the day before and booked a blessing ... Read more
