We chose this cruise for the itenaries for both weeks. We could not have made a better choice. The ship is small by comparison to many others but that is certainly part of its appeal. A friendly, informal ship with wonderful staff and ... Read more

We chose this particular cruise for its destinations as our son lives in Malta and we hadnt visited any of the other ports before. After a perfect flight and transfer we arrived at the ship around 10am expecting the usual delays in ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary- some places we had never visited and wanted to see. It was the Adriatic and we had very good hot weather. The scenery we saw was breathtaking (particularly Montenegro) and on the journey to ... Read more

After not cruising for a few years we decided to do a stay and cruise with Thomson, which included a stay in Croatia which was also a factor. It was also an adults only cruise. I knew that the Spirit was an old ship but that did not put me ... Read more

We have been on the celebration before so we knew what the ship was like. We flew from Gatwick on the Dreamliner which arrived in Dubrovnik early. Dubrovnik is called a 'bonded' airport which means we checked our luggage in as normal at ... Read more

We have used Thompson for a few cruises and in particular the Spirit (3 times), but this time we noticed that the food was not to the same standard and the entertainment was lacking. We chose an outside cabin on deck 7 which was perfect, ... Read more

We chose this cruise itinerary because of the ports of call and have been on about 10 cruises with Thomson so was really looking forward to it. The ports of call did not disappoint but I feel that Thomson did. We had noticed a change ... Read more

We sailed on the Thomson Celebration from September 29 - October 5 on the Eastern Mediterranean trip. It was our first-ever cruise so we were pretty green and did not have anything to compare it with. First impressions were good, ... Read more

Our flight to Dubrovnik was good and on arrival we were transferred quickly to the ship. Check in on board was fairly smooth but it was a bit annoying having a photographer line you up for photographs when you have just come off a flight. ... 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

Excellent cruise from start to finish, easy check in, we had an inside cabin on deck 3 which was fine, kept spotlessly clean. Great choice of food, tended to eat in the Meridian restaurant most evenings but tried the Kora La one evening ... Read more

We chose this cruise purely because of the itinerary. It had some of the destinations that we had never visited before. The Croatian destinations were brilliant and well worth a return. However the Celebration failed to live up to the ... Read more

The Cruise was meant to be a 5 star cruise. What a joke. The room had light fittings that did not work, the shower flooded, the "entertainment" was totally rubbish - the only thing funny about the comedian was leaving the ... Read more
