Thomson Cruises Summer 2015 Round-Up
From new ports to ship makeovers, we run through all the big news from Thomson Cruises for summer 2015…
Thomson Celebration in Dubrovnik
Thomson Celebration will be calling the postcard-pretty city of Dubrovnik home. We’re also putting on more flights here from regional airports – like Glasgow, Newcastle and Bristol – so it’s even easier for you to jet off from your doorstep.
All of Thomson Celebration’s cruises are going to be adults-only sailings. The itineraries in store are pretty special, too – as well as old favourites like Kotor and Venice, we’ll be heading to new ports of call in Croatia, Italy and Greece, including the vineyard-striped island of Korcula, historical Corinth (pictured below), and Bari – gateway to Matera’s cave buildings and Apulia’s cone-like trulli houses.
Thomson Spirit travels to Turkey
Thomson Spirit will be heading away from her UK base and setting up home in sunny Marmaris. She’ll add 6 new ports of call to her to-visit list – including the stylish waterfront city of Izmir (pictured below) and the unspoilt island of Bozcaada. Plus, her new Undiscovered Aegean itinerary will tick off some of the Aegean’s lesser-known spots, like Chios and Kavala.
Sensatori Cruise & Stay
With Thomson Spirit being based in Marmaris, cruise and stayers will have the chance to pair their cruise with a stay at one of our newest Sensatori hotels – Sensatori Resort Fethiye. It’s got a secluded setting, with a sand-and-pebble beach to the front and a bottle-green forest behind. All the Sensatori hallmarks are present and correct, too – amazing pools, a stylish spa, and top-class dining options.
Thomson Dream goes glam
Giant sunglasses at the ready – the people-watching havens of Portofino and Monaco are on the agenda for Thomson Dream’s new Mediterranean Secrets itinerary. You’ll also call in at Sete in France (pictured below) – the jumping-off point for gorgeous Carcassone – and the seaside Catalan city of Tarragona.
New ports for Thomson Majesty
Six new ports of call have been added to Thomson Majesty’s portfolio. You can tour UNESCO-listed churches or visit good-looking Bologna (pictured below) from Ravenna, or top up your tan on the 10 kilometres of sand that line the coast in Durres, Albania. The Cretan town of Chania also makes the list – it’s said to be the prettiest place in Greece.
A refresh for Thomson Spirit and Thomson Majesty
Thanks to their excellent customer satisfaction results, these two will be joining Thomson Dream and Thomson Celebration in the Platinum ranks. Their interiors now have a more contemporary look and feel too, and each ship features a themed à la carte restaurant. New balcony cabins are also on the cards – 28 on Majesty and 19 on Spirit.
