My wife and I have cruised with Thomson 8 times and have always enjoyed them. We decided to 'splash out' and book a balcony cabin on the Discovery. After reading some of the reviews about kids running wild, not getting drinks at the bar, ... Read more

There were three generations travelling from 6 to 75, Thomsons offer something for every generation in a relaxed atmosphere with lots of choices. This was our second Thomsons cruise and we couldn't fault it. If you would enjoy a ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the destinations which were all great , you cannot visit so many places in 14 days , in addition the weather was excellent , so from that point of view no problem , The ship though is a logistical nightmare on ... Read more

The poor reviews that I read were totally unfounded. Boarding was professional and not too time consuming. Orion restaurant had great service and excellent food at any of the three meals served daily. Tides bar for an evening drink had two ... Read more

First time cruisers for anniversary. Ship a bit dated but service superb. Food very good and destinations varied and interesting. Entertainment first class. Balcony cabin a must as some appear to be a bit claustrophobic. Do NOT pay the all ... Read more

This was our first cruise and we chose Thomson for its varied destinations that were on our 'bucket list' and many of the places didn't disappoint. Venice, Dubrovnik and Kotor were our highlights. We flew out to Dubrovnik from ... 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

Loved the itinerary and overall have always loved Thomson ships but this was the first time on The Celebration and in our opinion it was not up to the standard of The dream and even the old Destiny fared better. The staff are amazing ... Read more

Fabulous 2 weeks on Tui Discovery. Rebooked for January 2017 to the Caribbean. Done many cruises with Thomson but this ship is definitely more upmarket. The only downside was there were not enough bar staff and wine waiters are ... Read more

Where to begin? We arrived at the terminal in Palma de Majorca to board the ship around 10.30am having started our journey at 2am so we were very very tired. We went to the desk to collect our envelope with the cabin keys which couldn't be ... Read more

A ship with no fun. It is a floating 4 star hotel, nothing more. Staff are friendly but have too much to do to socialise. Food was excellent and plenty of it, the choice of food was excellent but if you did not want to share a dinner ... 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

As regular Thomson cruisers we were really looking forward to sailing on the Discovery. The ship is very impressive and our extra inside cabin on deck 7 was really spacious with plenty of hanging and lots of drawers, the only drawback ... Read more

The itinerary for Highlights of the Med was the reason for choosing this cruise. We arrived at the port shortly after 2 p.m. and it took around 30 minutes to get to the front of the queue to board the ship. We went to check out the cabin, ... Read more

There were four of us in our party all 70+. We choose this cruise due to the fact that we had been on the Celebration several times before and also for the itinerary, (and the sun of course)!! We received a fantastic welcome from staff ... Read more

This was our first cruise and, I must say, that after reading some of the reviews, I went on this holiday with some trepidation! Why did I listen to the moaners?!!! The Majesty is a delight - coming on a bit, but aren't we all?!! All the ... Read more

We had sailed on this ship when she was RCI's "Splendour of the Seas", and it was perfect. We booked a week in the Med on Discovery, knowing that it was only the second week of operation in her new colours, and with fingers ... Read more
