Thomson Cruises Expands 2017 Caribbean Program

TUI Discovery

Thomson Cruises today announced its winter 2017 program 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, according to a press release issued by Thomson.

In Nov. 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.

Managing Director of Thomson Cruises Richard Sofer said: “We’re really excited about the introduction of the Dominican Republic as Thomson Celebration’s base for next winter. This is the first time we’ll have had three ships in the Caribbean and that means we can continue to offer more choice and flexibility to our customers, who we know are looking more and more for holidays further afield.”

The TUI Discovery and the TUI Discovery 2 will join Thomson Celebration and will sail out of Bridgetown, Barbados and Montego Bay, Jamaica respectively.

Guatemala’s port Santo Tomas de Castilla is introduced on new itinerary the TUI Discovery 2, as well as Nassau.

The 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.
The Thomson Dream will move to its new homeports of Santa Cruz, Tenerife and Las Palmas, Gran Canaria in November 2017.

Thomson Majesty and Thomson Spirit will both embark on their last sailings in November 2017 before they leave the Thomson Cruises fleet.
