They’re back: Thomson returns to cruising from the UK

Thomson Cruises has made some 'exciting changes' to its Summer 2012 holiday programme, including the basing of Thomson Spirit in the UK.

Based in Newcastle from May to July 2012 and Harwich in August and September, guests will be able to drive to the port, climb aboard and start enjoying their Thomson cruise, without leaving the UK.

Thomson Spirit will be offering a selection of three to 14-night cruises from the UK

Thomson Spirit will sail 15 different ex-UK itineraries, taking in 39 destinations and providing a great selection of three to 14-night cruises.

Not only will Thomson be back cruising from the UK, for the very first time it will be introducing a new British Isles Cruise.

Just one of the 15 exciting ex-UK itineraries, the 11-night cruise gives guests the chance to discover the splendour of the Isles, visiting Guernsey, Dublin, Isle of Man, Isle of Mull, Orkney Islands and Edinburgh.

The other itineraries feature a variety of cruises to the popular Baltic, Icelandic and Norwegian Fjord regions.

There will also be a one-off ‘Weekend Affair’ cruise to Belgium and Holland - ideal for new guests wanting to get a taste of a cruising holiday, or for cruise lovers looking for a shorter break.

Phil Gardner, commercial general manager, said: “As a British Cruise company we are very excited to be back cruising from the UK. We have widened the portfolio of destinations we offer on our cruises to give customers even more choice.

“We have also listened to our customers who have requested the return of our UK programme and responded. Customers will now be able to experience the great service, value and holiday they get on a Thomson Cruise without even having to step on a plane.”
