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

Having never cruised before unsure what to expect but from the staff at EMA to embarking the ship in Palma could not have wished for more. Having boarded we certainly were not expecting the simplicity and quality we received. We were ... 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

After cruising with Royal Caribbean last year, we wanted something a little quieter this time but taking a similar route around the Mediterranean. The TUI Discovery was recommended by our travel agent as she has recently been acquired ... Read more

We've just returned from a week on Thomson Dream and had a wonderful time. I feel sorry for people who have had bad experiences, but we found the whole trip well organised, and yes we have cruised before. The Thomson staff were well ... 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

My husband booked this trip as a surprise birthday and wow, what a wonderful time we had. The old lady was charismatic and a joy to sail in plus our two cabin stewards Randy and Bert couldn't be more charming and helpful. Apart from some ... Read more

This was our first cruse and certainly won't be our last. Yes the ship is old but very clean and well maintained. We were on deck 1 with a outside cabin and must say it was very comfortable and larger that I expected. The housekeeping was ... Read more

Brilliant cruise for a first time cruise! We didn't explore Palma on our first day as we was mainly on the sun deck but wish we would have. Embarking and disembarking the ship was easy every day as it was as simple as finding the gangway ... Read more

This was actually an ADRIATIC cruise, which we booked because we wanted to see the Adriatic Coast, and especially Croatia, but didn't want to spend a week at the destinations. We were blown away by the incredible value of a Thomson ... Read more
