HAPPY CELEBRATION: Thomson Celebration Cruise Review by Pattie25

Thomson Celebration 5

Overall Member Rating


Sail Date: June 2012
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Embarkation: Other
From our local airport through to Dalaman, comfortable flight. Coaches waiting to take us to Dalaman. 1/1/2 hrs but we had done our homework and were aware of this. Speedy embarkation and cases delivered to our cabin within half hour of arriving on board. Celebration is a friendly ship, capacity is 1200 passengers, very easy to find our way around. Our cabin was on Promenade Deck and one of the best. We had a big bathroom with shower and bath. A fridge - an old fashioned t.v., but we werent on a cruise to sit in a cabin and watch it.
Food was passable, nothing to rave about but we didnt go hungry either. We ate most times in the Lido Buffet where there was more choice and was open 24 hours /day. Breakfasts were enjoyable and varied. The Meridian was waiter service, beautifully decorated venue, and service excellent, but portions were quite small.
The crew were so friendly and helpful. Ship spotlessly clean. Entertainment there was plenty. We saw quite a few of the More resident dancers shows, such energy. Maxwell Plumm the comedian was excellent. He appeared twice with a different show each time. No extra gratuities to fork out on Celebration and drink prices on a par with UK pub prices. Went on some of the organized tours and also did our own thing on others. Prices hadnt increased from our last cruise, which was a nice surprise.
Would we go on Celebration again - a definite YES. Less

Cabin review: DLX234

Cabin 234 - luxury. Yes, for an old ship, was comfortable and clean. air conditioning excellent. Unfortunately situation not so good as the hallway led to the mezzanine floor of the theatre, and Libertys public entertainment lounge, and open deck, which meant lots of traffic passing day and night
