Everything you need to know about Thomson Cruises

When it comes to the ultimate family holiday experience, Thomson Cruises have you covered from top to bottom deck. And if you’re looking for a couples retreat, they’re experts at that too – with 120 destinations, the choice is never ending. With all your tips and charges covered, you can sit back, relax and make the most of your experience without worrying about any added extras. They’ve mastered the art of cruising and with their new ships being All Inclusive – they have perfected free drinks too. Cheers to that!

Bon Appetit!

No two days onboard will ever be the same, and that includes the magnificent feast of flavours you’ll sample too. All ships within the Thomson Cruises fleet have at least three restaurants onboard, with the brilliant TUI Discovery 2 boasting eight. It can be as formal or as laid-back as you want – if you like pulling out your finest glad rags, then a multi-course sit down is just for you. You’ll be served by waiters suited and booted to cater to your every cruise need. Or, if you’d prefer to pile your plate high at the buffet, go ahead. Enjoy a barbeque around the pool, grab a light snack or mix things up with the captain’s dinner, where the menu gets a dressing-up – as do you! No matter what you decide, your food will be whipped up by some of the best chefs at sea. And there’s no need to worry if you’re a fussy eater, there’s always an array of dishes to get your taste buds tingling!

Never-ending fun

When you book a cruise with Thomson Cruises, you’re in for experiencing some new and exciting activities. Ever fancied taking up Yoga? Indulge in a morning fitness class up on deck, surrounded by stunning scenery and fresh sea air. If you consider yourself to be a dab hand in the kitchen, you’ll love getting some top tips from the head chefs themselves with cookery demos. Sign yourself up for a dance class or two or whip up a cocktail in one of the impressive workshops. Learn the art of wine tasting or test your skills with cool quizzes and pool-side games. Of course, you could always battle it out on the sports deck with a game of basketball or table tennis, too.

When the sun sets, the entertainment is turned up a notch – setting the bar for amazing performances, Thomson Cruises has some of the best West End–style productions at sea. You’ll laugh your socks off to UK stand-up comedians and sing along to Queen’s biggest hits! Your toes won’t stop tapping with live bands and cabaret acts to have you up and dancing in no time. If you’re looking for a cosy evening, sit back, relax, and listen acoustic musicians play – all whilst sipping on a fruity cocktail, of course.

The family experience

Taking the kids on a fun holiday has never been more relaxing, with the luxury of family-sized and interconnecting cabins, family shore excursions, kids dining and the ultimate onboard kids club. The accredited staff onboard will have everyone from tiny tots to teens grinning from ear to ear, with messy time, dressing up, movie nights, xbox parties and so much more – they’ll never want to leave. That gives mum and dad the perfect chance for some well-deserved alone time. Plus, children don’t pay adult prices or cabin supplements, and there are even special prices for infants under two. Onboard cots are free of charge, too.

The newest members of the Thomson Cruises fleet, TUI Discovery and TUI Discovery 2, have taken things to a whole new level, bringing you a teens-only space, The Hideout. You’ll also find a rock climbing wall, mini-golf and an interactive evening show called Splash Live! The kids can even accompany you for afternoon tea, indulging in gooey cakes and freshly-baked scones.

There’ll be organised activities for you to take full advantage of when you arrive in port, including trips to waterparks, aquariums and once-in-a-lifetime activities such as swimming with stingrays and dolphins. You’re onto a winner – Thomson Cruises scooped silver for the Best Family Cruise Line at the 2015 British Travel Awards!

Taking you to must-see sights

Almost all Thomson Cruises set sail at night, giving you fewer days at sea and more time at port! Adding new destinations and itineraries each year, they’re all about providing you with bucket-list adventures. Taking you to places that’ll have you shouting from the rooftops, Thomson Cruises can take you to iconic sights and serene beaches – the choice is all yours.
