Itinerary: Adriatic

The Thomson Celebration is a well equipped ship. It is not the newest Ship in the world but with the right itinerary it is perfect for the cruiser on a tight budget.

Overall the ship is in a good maintained condition but it is a bit dated compared to some of the other cruise ships with other companies. That said, the staff on board were much better and more attentive than I have experienced on other ships. They quite simply could not do enough for you and were always happy to help.

The food on board at the Meridian restaurant, which is the main dining area (waiter service breakfast, lunch and dinner), was of a high standard with a good variety on each daily menu. There are 3 premium pay restaurant, which we opted for, but to be honest there is no need as the main restaurant is that good. I did enjoy my steak at the hot stone experience though, Tip! We also used the self service restaurant and the terrace grill throughout the day and again there was a good selection. The terrace grill didn't look to inviting with the burgers and pizza as it look as though everything had been sitting for quite some time and when we tried the burgers on one occasion it was warm at best so never tried again.

As the stateroom was a suite it was really quite spacious and comfortable. The toilet was a bit cramped but you should expect this on a cruise ship. You are welcome to watch a tour of our room to give you a better idea as to what to expect.

We enjoyed all the entertainment throughout the ship, and we took in as much as we could, and the quality and standard was very good. The theatre shows were of a very high standard.

Service at the bars was really quite quick and we found a lot of the time the waiters would be coming around and asking if you wanted another.

There was also a shopping arcade, spa and gym areas which we used sparingly but they always seemed quite busy and they look bright.

We did our own thing at the ports
