Thomson Cruises: A Sultry Sunny Escape

One of the biggest challenges that cruise lines need to face is keeping their itinerary interesting. Thomson Cruises is particularly good at keeping entertaining passengers, whether they’re onboard or inland. Since the line’s comeback in 1995, they’ve been supplying 4- and 5-star cruises to passengers from the UK. The destinations are always sunny, and the list of activities promising, whether the cruise is designed for families or for adults only.

Fine four of the fleet

Thomson Cruises is under the umbrella company Thomson Holidays. The cruise line was terminated in 1976 because of the rising costs of fuel, but they made a comeback in 1995 as soon as competitors in the travel industry revived their own cruise lines. Today, the Thomson Cruises operates a number of the most popular cruise tours in Europe. They’re especially popular in the United Kingdom, thanks to their impressive fleet and thoughtful crew members.

There are four ships in the fleet: the Thomson Celebration, Thomson Destiny, Thomson Dream, and the Thomson Spirit. The Thomson Spirit is the cruise line’s smallest vessel. It’s still rated as a four-star mega cruise ship, though, carrying 520 crew members and about twice as many passengers. For a small mega-cruiser, the designer suites are incredibly spacious with only the finest furnishings. There are also standard cabins which are also comfortable, although the bunk beds may be smaller and you might see less of the sea from your window.

Basic amenities of all ships include bars, a dining area, viewing decks, spacious designer or luxury rooms, and more. The bigger ships have more amenities compared to the Thomson Spirit. The Thomson Spirit is also exclusively for adults. If you’re planning your trip with the family, the bigger mega-cruisers might appeal to you.

The Thomson Dream is the biggest cruise ship in the fleet carrying 600 crew members and more than 1,500 passengers. This cruise ship is designed for adults as well as adults traveling with children. Aside from more spacious cabins, the cruise ship is also more stylishly designed as a whole. Naturally, it has a higher rating compared to the other Thomson Cruises ships. While the rest of the fleet enjoy 4-star-rating, the Thomson Dream is a five-star cruise ship.

The bars here are also bigger, and it offers more diversity in your dining experience. Inside that majestic ship are four restaurants offering both buffet and a la carte dishes 24/7. There are also two swimming pools on deck, a wellness center and a theater.

Prime Destinations

Thomson Cruises offers quite a wide range of cruises spanning from three nights to 14 nights. They explore the Canaries, the Caribbean, Europe, the Transatlantic, Iberia, Egypt, the Mediterranean, Norway and the Red Sea. Aside from the luxuries offered inside the ship, the cruise also covers very educational and entertaining inland tours, especially in its exotic destinations. Passengers even have the option to extend their stay with the Thomson Cruises’ “Cruise and Stay” option.
