Further to the recent announcement of Thomson Cruises acquiring a new ship
in 2010, the company’s faith in the growing British cruise market continues
with the announcement of exciting new Winter 2010/11 cruise itineraries for
Thomson Dream. The Caribbean itineraries will include Havana, Santa Marta
and Roatan - three brand new destinations for Thomson Cruises.
With only a small handful of European Cruise lines being allowed access to
the cultural and historical city of Havana due to US laws on travel to the
country, Thomson Cruises have taken the opportunity to offer British
cruisers an inspirational choice of itineraries for Winter 2010/11.
The new itineraries have been designed to encourage Brits to take longer
cruises, instead of the seven night itineraries generally offered by
Thomson. The three, fourteen night itineraries - Caribbean Experience,
Classic Caribbean and Cuban Adventure, which sail from January to March
2010 - take in some of the most beautiful ports in the Caribbean. Roatan
in Honduras and Santa Marta in Columbia are two more new additions to the
wealth of destinations available to Thomson customers. Thomson Dream will
visit the Central American countries on the Caribbean Experience itinerary,
along with Aruba, Curacao, Grand Cayman, Cozumel and Havana.
Direct flights to and from three UK airports to Havana, Barbados and
Jamaica on Thomson Airways allow easy access to Thomson Dream’s Winter
The 1,500 passenger Thomson Dream joins the fleet in April 2010 with
Mediterranean sailings out of Palma, Majorca. At the end of the summer
season, the ship will go into dry dock for a short time before sailing to
the Caribbean. The ship will feature a large revolving stage in the
Broadway show-lounge, allowing Thomson to continue to feature the
production show entertainment programme for which it is renowned. The ship
also boasts four dining venues including a 24 hour buffet, with the main
restaurant following the open-seating style of Thomson Celebration and
Thomson Spirit at dinner with full waiter services and six courses every
Completely refurbished in 2002, the accommodation and public areas are
bright, modern and spacious. From the inside cabins right up to the suites
with balcony, guests will have a feeling of space that other ships are not
able to give.
The Thomson Dream Winter 10/11 programme will be on sale from 5th November.
