    Hello,Ange, and welcome.
    I'm sure that there will be lots of happy Thomson cruisers to help. I can't right now....but when I return in Feb, I'll be telling everyone about my upcoming Celebration cruise. Lots of people on here have helped me, so I'm looking forward to it.

      Hi Ange,
      Are you going somewhere nice? I took my first cruise last year and immediately booked up for another. Nobody tells you about the addiction until it's too late.

      I took far too many clothes and only wore about a third of them so my tip would be to find out if there is a launderette on board (some ships have them) or a laundry service and then you don't need to take too much.

      Also, you can look up the destinations on this website and find out whether you can do some trips on your own which is cheaper than taking the ship's excursions.

          Hi Ange

          You'll have a lovely time. You'll take too many clothes and probably eat and drink more than is good for you - you can diet when you get back, in preparation for the next cruise.:D

          Don't forget a high factor sun screen for those days at sea when the breeze takes away some of the heat, but the UV rays are still very strong. You'll see loads of people with red shoulders after the first sunny day!

          I think my neighbour is on the same trip, I'll ask her.
