(10.30 a.m. EDT) — Thomson Cruises has revealed a number of new itinerary changes for its fleet next year, including a new homeport for its new ship Thomson Discovery.
After spending the summer sailing from Palma, Thomson Discovery — which debuts in June — will be based in Barbados for the winter 16/17 season.
The 902-passenger ship — which is currently sailing as Royal Caribbean’s Splendour of the Seas — will sail three different itineraries from its new homeport in Barbados including the “no sea day” Seven Shores itinerary.
It is Thomson Cruises’ first Caribbean itinerary to feature no full day at sea, and ports of call include Bridgetown, Barbados; Fort de France, Martinique; Roseau, Dominica; Pointe a Pitre, Guadeloupe; Castries, St Lucia; Kingstown, St Vincent and St George’s, Grenada.
It is part of Thomson Cruises’ ambition of expanding its portfolio of destination intensive itineraries.
Thomson Celebration will move to its new homeport in Dubai, as previously announced. Thomson Dream will stay in its homeport in Montego Bay, Jamaica and will sail three itineraries.
• Thomson Cruises will offer free all inclusive upgrades (subject to availability) on all winter 2016/17 cruises.
