The various ports are all mainly 'industrial' (ugly) so taking excursions is wise, if not essential. The Thomson web site features all of the excursions, details and the costs. (Cruise excursions tend to be very good, but are rarely cheap). Some of the transferes are long, but it's normally worth going! It's an interesting cruise, be it a rather different one.
What on earth is the connection between a Rugby match on t.v & your answer?????
Must admit I was a bit baffled to what the connection was.
Question above this one is re Thomson Red Sea. I suspect O. answered that one,

Unlikely you will see that match as most of the channels are bounced in from the US networks OK if you want to watch CNN and others of that ilk but not likely a Wales V England match. One ship we were on had a sports bar and we thought might see some footie no just americam baseball etc. Hoepfully I am wrong but if so others will correct what I have said.
Bless they got all muddled up! Sadly during our wonderful trips on the Celebration have never seen any games on tv, be they football or rugby. Obviously if you were in port you would be able to find a bar with a tv. Happy holiday am sure you'll have a wonderful cruise. We did this itinerary over Christmas 2007, great time had by all.
I'll bet this is killing you! It's certainly killing me as I'll be in the air on my way to Miami (Celebrity Solstice). The match kicks off at 17:30 and even if you could find a sports bar ashore, the ship will sail too soon for you to see the match there. If you'd been on Ocean Village the chances of seeing it live in the Oval Bar are high - I've seen plenty of live football there. Thomson don't seem to have the facilities.
However please console yourself with the thought that you won't have to suffer the indignity of sitting with loads of England fans as we thrash your boys by 20 clear points.
It depends where you are joining the ship! On Saturdays Celebration should be in Gran Canary and does not sail until late, at least 11pm. You might be able to find a sports bar ashore and still be aback aboard to drown your sorrows before the ship leaves.
So glad Jenkins of Swansea did not have to drown their sorrows back on board, why? oh yes, cause WALES WON .
I would say from experience that the answer is no - you could ask the CRUISE DIRECTOR ( note this is the best person to ask initially ) when you board if they will show it in Liberties Bar ...but I doubt they will.
