It was Perfect- pretty entertaning,friendly, elegant, classy time- for hubby and I! Simply phenomenal from time of embarkation until we left ship for airport home!

Written on: 12/10/2010

An old ship in need of updating, dirty shower in cabin with dirty surfaces.
Reception staff not interested untill embarassed in front of customers with photographs of the bathroom, transferred to another cabin after 4.5 hours, noisy and occasional smell of engine fumes in second cabin.
Never received an apology and will report the saga with evidence to Head Office.
Food was just ok, entertainment was good… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/10/2010

I've just came back from a Egypt/Holy Land cruse on Thomson Celebration (Oct 2010) and I'd like highly recommend it. Everything was perfectly fine. Very good organization, delicious food. No problems with cabin at all (shower, toilet, noise). I didn't hear about anybody complaining too. Maybe cabin decor a little bit out of fashion but who cares. Everything very clean. Cruse crew very nice, effective and dedicated. Optional tours interesting and well organized, quite expensive though. One (like… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/07/2010

On arrival, we were given a letter from the ship saying that the Norovirus was on board. Also our aircon was broken, and no hor water for the first 24 hours. Other cabins were similarly effected.
3 days into the cruise, one of us caught the virus, and we were both we were quarantined for 48 hrs. At this stage the nurse moved us to a room with functioning aircon.
We subsequently spoke to other people that had also had the virus that week.
As a retired person with health problems, I felt it was… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/06/2010 by john peacock (1 review written)

This was our first "thomson" cruise, and having been with P&O and Holland America it was taken with some apprehension. We could not fault it, having booked early we had the advantage of an all inclusive deal, value for money it could not be beaten. The range of drinks was exceptional, the food in the Meridian restaurant was above average by a long shot and even in the Lido self service restaurant it was very very very good. Entertainment on board was of a high standard, particularly in… Read Full Review

My 2 sisters and I took our 80 year old mother on a weeks cruise around the greek islands. We all had a wonderful time . we sent postcards from the Celebration ship and on our return were suprised to hear no one had received them. 3 months later they have all turned up at there addresses .so just be warned if you think about sending postcards from the ship they may not reach there detination for some time. I think ours went around the world and back. apart from that a good time was had by all… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/10/2008

I went in april 07 and it was fantastic! Plenty to do, as much as you can eat, the cabins were comfortable and the staff were great. The toilets were clean every time i went in and the pool was too. People onboard were friendly, too. The mocktails were very nice! The shows were so good we watched them at the later showing as well! The excursions were amazing - i've had so many great expieriences and memories. I'd love to go again!… Read Full Review

“Just back from a week aboard the Thomson Celebration...”

Written on: 26/04/2008 by holcomser (1 review written)

Just back from a week aboard the Thomson Celebration and what can I say, awful! We paid £147.00 to choose our deck and cabin (408) and upon returning at 23.45 on our first night we were met with a loud motor noise from the ceiling and a banging on the the outside. I phoned the reception who said the motor noise would stop as soon as we left port, which it did, but they had no idea what the banging was but they would send someone down. Guy came down, had no idea what it was, and he went back to… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/02/2008 by davybass (1 review written)

Exellent cruise in June 2007, entertainment top class, food outstanding, crew top marks especialy waiters in the main dining room, they couldn't do enough for you. Shore visit itinerary very good. we were two sixty year old couples but thought we were 20 year old again, best holiday in years. The only bad point is that the celebration is not on the med for 2008 or we would have booked 2 more cruises in april and october as soon as we returned to the u. k. To our dismay we have had to book… Read Full Review

Great value for money, not the largest ship in the world however attention to detail is amazing. The small things the staff do make a huge difference. Can teach the likes of Royal how to do it right… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/09/2007 by Dolan (1 review written)

I have cruised with Thomson 4 times previously and this was the first time on the celebration. The ship was excellent value for money, spotlessly clean, well organized with exemplary staff. Ok not one of the grander cruise ships in decor etc but who wants to pay the inflated prices of other cruise lines- you can pay to stay at a 5 star hotel on land! The whole nautical experience is what I presume most cruise goers opt for and the Celebration fits the bill perfectly.
First class quality… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/10/2006 by dbevan97 (1 review written)

We've just returned from a cruise aboard the Thomson Celebration. The cruise was called 'Jewels of the Mediterranean'. There were six ports of call over the period of a week. We had not cruised as a couple before, as we are hardened independent travellers (we are previous winners of the Daily Mail independent travel family of the year competition). Our expectation was not high, but we were attracted to the cruise because the itinerary looked viable for a nice autumn break. There were a number… Read Full Review
