Back by Popular Demand! Sail on Thomson Spirit in Summer 2018

28 Jul 2017 | by Sarah Clarke

Back by popular demand, Thomson Spirit is staying in the UK for another year and sailing a spectacular summer season in 2018.

In response to overwhelming customer feedback and adoration for Thomson Spirit, Thomson Cruises have decided to release new sailings for next year. Thomson Spirit’s last hurrah will cruise continental coasts and a medley of Mediterranean highlights in 2018.

As the longest serving cruise ship in the Thomson Cruises fleet, Thomson Spirit has accommodated thousands of happy cruise guests over the years and created many amazing holiday memories. So when Thomson guests declared they were not quite ready to say goodbye to the 'Spirit' of the fleet, Thomson Cruises quickly responded.

"When we had announced that Thomson Spirit would be sailing with us for the last time this year we were overwhelmed by the response. Our customers really love Thomson Spirit – [she's] the longest serving member of our fleet and has a real homely feel, being one of our smallest ships,' said Richard Sofer, Thomson Cruises MD
