  3. Marella Celebration
We have been on the Celebration before and we knew what to expect. The food in both the meridian and the Lido was excellent with a good choice always hot. The entertainment was not as good as our last cruise they had problems with the speakers on several nights. The comedian Josh Daniels was excellent and Ron Taylor who had worked at Granada Tv he had worked with many celebrities and was very interesting telling us all the amusing stories. The Cabin was kept spotless by Budi , The only downside was queing for shuttle bus tickets which you could only purchase the night before from the destination team many people were complaining about this. All the countries visited where very interesting especially St Petersburgh (except for long immigration ques) We would no hesitation cruising with Thomson again. I would not book next time till a month before as when we booked we could not take off the all inc drinks pakage as they said it was free several months later we could have paid half the price with no drinks package so dont know how they can say it is free when they reduce the cruise.

Excellent Cruise
