Just cruised the Med on the Celebration and had a terrific time. Accommodation was good, food excellent, phillipino crew were the best, entertainment very good (particularly Stan Johns), beer reasonably priced (£2.70 for Stella or Boddingtons), Captain was an OK guy, good information provided, roll on the next time.

On Thomson Celebration in Oct 07 - Med Rennaissance - fantastic! Again on Celebration Jan 08 - Red Sea Magic. Really friendly - good food - super entertainment - altogether very good. Downside lower deck cabins can be noisy if anywhere near engine.

Weel there are those that would find fault with almost anything, but I don't know where you are getting your info from. Over 90% of many reviews I have read are extremely positive, and having been on the Celebration twice I wojuld wholeheartedly concur with this large majority. Super experience!

Went on the Celebration for my first cruise in 2007 and found the crew, staff and all concerned on board very friendly, curteous and very professional in their attitude to all the passengers. The cabins are very comfortable, fantastic choice of food on offer on matter in which restaurant you eat, the tours are brilliant, the entertainment team work hard to ensure that the evening entertainment is something to remember. Overall, just because Thomson seem to be at the lower end of the cruise list, nothing can be faulted in their endeavour to provide an excellent cruise package.

Just come back from Red sea Cruise on Celebration, loved everything about it, the food was fantastic, the cabin was compact but had everything we needed, entertainment fab, could do as little or as much as you liked, only down side was day at sea, not enough room on ship people sunbathing on the floor anywhere they could find. Have booked for next year with Thomson to Canaries. Michelle, Lancashire 14th Mar 200.

Costa Concordia Dismantlin...

By Sam Smith

La Spezia ? where.

By Nicola Milligan

Mediterranean cruises are calling into several ports depending on the size of the cruise ship. So Livorno is commonly know as the port to visit Florence and Pisa. This is a big industrial port so if you have been to both of those cities before not a lot for you to do.We are now finding some ships are calling into La Spezia as an alternative. However the journey can take over two hours each way, so what else is there to do in this area of Italy.I have been recommended by a regular customer a m...

Cuba

By Steve Fuller

I visited Cuba recently and had an amazing experience. The people, the way of life and culture. I learned a lot of it’s history, more than just what I would have learned at school. It was very interesting to see at first hand what life is like there.Being on an escorted tour I was able to see the real Cuba. Not just a few nights in Havana and then spending the rest of our time on a beach. I visited Cuba in-land, I saw the farms, the tobacco and coffee plants and just how the real people...
