Ok, so we've been on a couple of cruises before (around the Aegean and Red Sea) and this was our 3rd time on the Celebration (have also been on the Majesty). We know what to expect on a Thomson cruise and we weren't disappointed. Some ... Read more

JOURNEY: very easy to check in online few days before and then just drop off bags-and not see them again until we got on board the ship-this was great and took away all the stress of travelling -The dream liner is a fab plane and a very ... Read more

This was our first cruise and first time to the Careibran. As other reviews state the Celebration is a little faded, but saying that it was lovely to be on a 'proper ship' and the fact that it was small meant that it was very friendly. All ... Read more

Saying goodbye to your luggage at Birmingham is the start to our holiday as you wont see them again until you enter your cabin on the "Celebration" in beautiful Barbados. As first time cruisers we chose this particular trip as ... Read more

We went for our honeymoon. We arrived in the embarkation area to be greeted by a miserable girl who never once smiled and told us we had to register a debit card with her or deposit £200 on board at Reception as this was their ... Read more

After reading a lot of negative reveiws we where apprehensive on going on The Celebration. It didn't have the wow factor as we approached the dock in Barbados. All the other ships dwarfed it. But as soon as we started going through ... Read more

This was our first cruise and I was a little apprehensive but there was absolutely no need. Thomson could not have looked after you better. Yes the décor is a little dated and could do with a refurb but it still has a certain ... Read more

The ship looked the part when we joined it at Corfu, painted and shiney. Bags reached our rooms before us and common areas seemed good and clean. Staff were excellent throughout. Arriving with 20 kilos x 2 bags of clothes for 7 nights of ... Read more

Thompson should take a long look at how its disappointing attitude lets down the extremely hard working crew in all areas of this ship. The ship shows its age in all areas from hatches on deck that are clearly rusted shut and painted ... Read more

This was our first cruise with Thomson's but definitely not the last one. The flight and transfer from Dalaman to Marmaris was well organised, as was the checking in on to the ship. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the food ... Read more
