Thomson Cruises are a family-friendly mid-sized cruise line with a classic British flavour.
Bearing the same name as one of the most iconic travel agencies in the UK, they sail to some of the most popular destinations in the world.
They offer a range of mid-sized family-friendly ships to choose from.
While the ships tend to be located around the world, there are a handful of no-fly mini cruise itineraries that depart from the UK.
TUI Discovery is the newest member of the fleet. Formerly Royal Caribbean's Splendour of the Seas the ship has undergone a makeover now sails as part of the Thomson fleet.
She joins Thomson Dream, Thomson Celebration, Thomson Spirit, and Thomson Majesty. Each ship has a different character and feel to it, but all offer the same service Thomson is known for.
In Summer 2017, TUI Discovery 2 will become the newest ship in the fleet. Formerly sailing as Royal Caribbean's Legend of the Seas the ship will undergo a makeover before joining the Thomson family. Both TUI Discovery and TUI Discovery 2 will become all-inclusive ships from summer 2017.

The dull-but-necessary small print
All deals are subject to availability and can be withdrawn by the operator without prior notice. The lead-in prices (otherwise known as the 'from' prices) are, unless otherwise stated above, based on two adults sharing the cheapest available cabin on the cheapest available date. Typically the best prices are available at the start of any promotion period so the earlier you book the better choice of sailing dates and cabin availability you should have. Mid-week sail dates are likely to be cheaper than weekend sail dates.
