Thomson Cruises has selected Columbia Cruise Services (CCS) to manage the Thomson Discovery.

After a re-branding period Thomson Cruises will take over the vessel in April 2016, currently sailing as Splendour of the Seas for Royal Caribbean International.

The collaboration between Columbia/CCS and Thomson Cruises started back in 2004 with the appointment for the technical management for the Thomson Celebration, Island Escape and the Thomson Dream followed in 2009.

“We are very happy to add yet another vessel to our Thomson fleet”, stated Olaf Groeger, Director of CCS. “To be trusted with Thomson’s newest and most modern addition is a great honor and underlines the trust we have gained by successfully managing Thomson vessels over the years.”
