The swift Thomson Spirit ripples through the waters of the Mediterranean with style and care. Expect the ship's spacious decks to provide with your most relaxing cruise yet.

Formally the Patriot and before that the Nieuw Amsterdam, the Thomson Spirit comes with plenty of history and, indeed, spirit. Having sailed around the Americas, the Thomson Spirit settles down for calming Mediterranean cruises, after receiving an extensive refit in Greece. Offering sizable public rooms, there's certainly no shortage of space on the Thomson Spirit. There's also a great range of restaurants, bars, facilities and entertainment for all ages, making the ship perfect for family cruise holidays.

With all inclusive upgrades available on most sailings, why not turn your next Thomson Spirit holiday into a Thomson Cruises 2013 all inclusive deal?

Cuisine and Dining on Thomson Spirit

By way of drinking and dining, the Thomson Spirit has more than enough to quench your needs. You could start the day by waking yourself up with a freshly cooked breakfast at The Compass Rose Restaurant, whose open seating arrangements allow you to wander in at any time, meaning you don't have to worry about rushing to get ready first thing in the morning. Lunch could perhaps be a BBQ at the Terrace Grill; there's nothing quite like lazing back with a bite to eat whilst the beautiful sun glistens off the waters around you.

Entertainment on Thomson Spirit

As the long afternoon begins to set, it's time to perhaps build your appetite. Having a tipple at the outdoor Lido Bar will let you watch the sunset by the pool or you could even take a dip before dinner. Sirocco's is the place to be for your evening meal. With its intimate atmosphere and wonderful food and wine, you'll really feel spoilt. Just make sure you make a reservation as tables go quickly! To end the night, settle back in the trendy Horizons Bar and enjoy the serene ambiance with your favourite cocktail.

Of course, the Thomson Spirit is also packed with plenty of other facilities. Take the Broadway Show Lounge for example, where you can relax back and enjoy the professional West End style shows and top comedy from your favourite UK acts. The sports deck is also an option for the more active cruiser. You can find all sorts of games from bigger sports such as football and basketball, to the smaller, such as table-tennis. Children are also well-catered for on the Thomson Spirit, with the dedicated Kidzone allowing endless amounts of fun whilst you potter about and explore the ship.

Spa & Fitness on Thomson Spirit

Along with the extensive gym facilities and spa, the cinema, the casino and the High Spirits live music venue, the Thomson Spirit is clearly a place to unwind and have fun. The numerous options onboard mean you'll never have a dull moment. Better still, despite being able to fit in 1,500 passengers, the ship will take 200 less to ensure you've got all the room and space you need on your cruise. So if you're looking for a way to whisk the family off to an enjoyable and entertaining holiday, Thomson Cruises
