Thomson Cruises to add balconies to three ships

Thomson Cruises to add balconies to three ships
Thomson Cruises has announced that three ships in its fleet; Thomson Celebration, Thomson Spirit and Thomson Majesty will add private balconies onto selected cabins, next year. Currently none of the ships have balcony cabins.

Thomson Dream, which in November 2014 will have a new homeport in Montego Bay, Jamaica, has already got six balconied cabins. Thomson Celebration which will also be in the Caribbean, sailing from Barbados from next November, will have 26 balconies added; Thomson Majesty will be fitted with 28 and Thomson Spirit will have 19 added.
Customer operations director for Thomson Cruises, Fraser Ellacott, said: 'The addition of private balconies really takes our offering up a notch, giving customers an even better experience on board our ships. We know that customers want the best of both worlds when it comes to relaxing in their own private cabins as well as getting involved with on-board life in public areas of the ship. A private outside space is really important to many and the investment we are putting into our fleet is clear from this enhancement.'
