Splendour of the Seas which will begin sailing for TUI owned Thomson Cruises in the UK in 2016 has been named Thomson Discovery.
The Thomson Discovery will be the largest vessel ever to sail for Thomson Cruises. As Cruise Hive previously reported in early March the ship will transfer to the TUI owned cruise line in the second quarter of 2016.
Helen Caron, Managing Director of Thomson Cruises, said in march 2015: “We’re very excited to be welcoming the ship to our fleet next summer. This is the first step in our fleet modernisation and transformation strategy and will bring an enhanced offering to our customers with more balcony cabins than ever before, a wider choice of suites, an increased number of dining options and extra entertainment and activity facilities. We are confident that our customers will enjoy sailing on the new addition to our fleet.”
The Thomson Discover will sail four different itineraries all starting and finishing in Palma, Majorca, with 5 ports of call along the way. All the itineraries will be based in the Mediterranean and guests can take advantage of modern lounges and features that haven’t been experienced in the fleet before.
Bookings for the added vessel will be open from April 23rd, 2015.
