NEW SHIP TUI Explorer announced for Thomson Cruises

Date Posted: 30 Mar 2017
Thomson Cruises has just announced that its largest ship to date will set sail in 2018.

New ship, TUI Explorer, will offer a similar cruising experience to TUI Discovery and TUI Discovery 2 but with even more choice for dining, leisure and entertainment.

Thomson’s all-inclusive cruising style will be standard for TUI Explorer and guests will be able to enjoy plenty of choice and flexibility during their time onboard.

Notable new features for TUI Explorer include new cabin types, such as larger inside cabins (16m2 larger than Thomson’s other standard inside cabins) and new spacious family balcony cabins sleeping up to five people.

The onboard spa will feature a Finnish sauna, a couples room, luxury treatment suites and an adult only sunbathing area known as The Veranda.

New sushi counter, Um Sushi and new glass roofed dining area The Mediterranean housing a pizzeria, hot stone grill and tapas restaurant, will add even more choice to the Thomson Cruises dining experience. Guests can look forward to ten venues in which to dine onboard TUI Explorer (some at a supplement).

Spectacular ocean views can be enjoyed from new bar Indigo located on top deck and indoor entertainment gets an uplift with the cool colour changing bar and live music of The Lounge.

Maiden season will see TUI Explorer sailing the Western Mediterranean from Palma in May 2018 with port calls including Barcelona, Rome, Naples and Florence. Expected to be on sale this spring, check back for further details.

What our customers say

"I booked a Fred Olsen cruise with IGLU last month and was so impressed by the service I received. The staff member I spoke to was Kimberley and she was exemplary. Capable, kind, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. She went through every step of the way calmly and thoroughly. IGLU were recommended to me by friends and I have no hesitation in passing the recommendation along. Well done IGLU and thank you. "

"So easy to deal with, I studied the Cruise I wanted, did my research with different company's and returned to Iglu. I had three quotes matching Iglu’s cost, but with one phone call they beat the price themselves by £40 without me even asking, how easy was that! "
