Sail Date: Jan 2017

We have travelled on Thomson's ships several times over the years and liked the idea of a cruise from Dubai.

Prior to sailing however I checked out some of the recent reviews on the Celebration and travelled expecting the ship to have gone down hill since we were last on it. However I am pleased to report the ship is still one of the best in terms of atmosphere, service and value. I genuinely don't know what some people have got to complain about. it is not a 5 star ship but doesn't pretend to be and you get, in my view, more than you pay for.

The information provided by Thomson prior to the cruise was scant to say the least and we were left wondering about visa requirements and currencies.
