Given the size and type of ships they have then Thomsons could be seen as direct opposition offering the same type and stle of cruise. But others will give your other options no doubt.

Ocean village is 70,000 tons so is considerably bigger than island.

Ocean Village operate a very similar style of cruising experience aimed at the UK market at similar prices with both providing buffet service food (or waiter service at an additional cost) and a casual dress code.
