LONDON, England, Tuesday November 22, 2016 – Thomson Cruises has unveiled its winter 2017 programme which, due to customer demand, sees long-haul a focus with more ships based in the Caribbean than ever before and exciting new ports of call added.
From November 2017, Thomson Celebration will be moving to its new homeport of La Romana in the Dominican Republic, meaning for the first time in its history, Thomson Cruises will have three of its ships based in the Caribbean.
All-inclusive ships TUI Discovery and new addition TUI Discovery 2 will join Thomson Celebration and will sail out of Bridgetown, Barbados and Montego Bay, Jamaica respectively.
Thomson Celebration’s move to the Dominican Republic will give more opportunities to team cruise holidays with a Thomson beach stay at its tropical island retreat Sensatori Resort Punta Cana. The addition of this tropical island retreat also means new itineraries, with Coral Islands and Caribbean Gems calling at exotic hotspots such as St Lucia, Grenada and Antigua, as well as lesser known gems like St Maarten and Martinique.
The ship will also sail even more Cuban Fusion cruises thanks to growing demand, giving passengers the chance to explore Havana during its overnight stop.
Recently named ‘Best New Ship’ at the 2016 Cruise Critic Editors’ Pick Awards, TUI Discovery will sail new itineraries Tropical Horizons and Seven Isles from Barbados, which include new ports of call St Thomas in the US Virgin Islands and San Juan, Puerto Rico.
