Taking a cruise on Thomson Spirit means you'll be able to chill out and enjoy all of the wonderful facilities this splendid ship has to offer. You won't have a dull moment onboard, as from sports decks to relaxing bars, this ship's amenities are something truly special.

About Thomson Spirit

From the moment you set foot onboard Thomson Spirit, you know you’re in for a good time. The 627 cabins are spacious and there’s a crew of 520 to cater to your every need. The ship has recently had a makeover too, so when you book your cruise to the eastern Mediterranean you’re sure to be sailing in style.

The attention to detail carries on throughout the rest of the ship. Whether you’re travelling alone or with family and friends, you can start your day with a sumptuous breakfast at the Terrace Grill on deck five before heading to the High Spirits lounge for games and activities.

It’s easy to keep on top of your sports regime here as there’s a fully equipped gym and sauna. Or you could make use of Oceans Spa and Beauty Salon for a touch of pampering. With a deck sports area on the top of the ship and two pools – one exclusively for adults, there’s plenty to do onboard.

Dining is always exciting on a cruise, and eating out at Sirocco’s A La Carte restaurant is a real gourmet treat. You can even build upon your cookery skills with regular cooking demos at the Lido Bar before popping into the restaurant itself for a bite to eat.

Movie buffs will appreciate the comfort of the 200-seat cinema, or you can test your luck at the Casino with lessons available for beginners. With deck parties, cocktail lounges as well as late-night discos in High Spirits, you might need to unwind in the enticing Card and Reading room.

You can rest assured of a luxurious and active holiday when you take a cruise on Thomson Spirit.

From afternoon tea to late-night buffets, there’s plenty of choice for food-lovers onboard the Thomson Spirit. Dining in the ship's 4 restaurants strikes a perfect balance between formal and informal. At the Lido Restaurant, you can help yourself to a little of everything that takes your fancy. Otherwise, there's waiter service in the main dining room and top-notch cuisine in their à la carte restaurant. And don’t forget the captain’s weekly gala reception and dinner. It’s a pull-out-all-the-stops night that calls for a dressing-up – both frocks and food.

Terrace Grill

Breakfast omelettes, lunchtime barbecues, pizzas and just-flipped burgers are served on the open deck outside the Lido Restaurant.

  • Experience: Complimentary
  • Cuisine: Casual

Lido Restaurant

Once you’ve helped yourself to a buffet spread of pastas, salads, fish and meat, you’re free to dine wherever you wish at this informal restaurant. Every now and then, our chefs lay on themed nights – you’ll get anything from Indian spiced dishes to Tex-Mex burritos and shredded beef tacos.

  • Experience: Complimentary
  • Cuisine: Buffet

Sirocco's A La Carte Restaurant

For a really special evening, this à la carte restaurant serves signature dishes like lobster thermidor while you get to enjoy attentive waiter service in a sophisticated setting.

Just so you know, a cover charge applies and you’ll need to make a reservation.

  • Experience: Cover
  • Cuisine: Fine

The Compass Rose Restaurant

Meals are an elegant affair here. Serving breakfast, lunch and a multi-course dinner with waiter service, this airy restaurant has an open-seating policy, so you can dine where and when you like during opening times. Signature dishes include beef wellington and salmon en croûte.

  • Experience: Complimentary
  • Cuisine: Classic

From the opening deck party to the Captain’s Gala Reception, Thomson Spirit is really proud of its entertainment. The show lounge serves up a nightly cocktail of show-stopping numbers. Elsewhere on the ship, the lounges are filled with live music and there are plenty of quizzes, games and challenges timetabled throughout the day.

Horizons

Edge-to-edge windows allow for excellent sea views in this sophisticated bar, which has comfy seating and a dance floor. Live music and cabaret make it an entertaining spot.

Cinema

Grab some snacks and snuggle down for 3-daily showings of modern classic and recently released movies in this 200-seat cinema.

Raffles Bar

With its mix of bar stools and bucket chairs, Raffles Bar takes its style from Raffles in Singapore. It’s a welcoming spot for meeting friends for pre-dinner drinks with a pianist soundtracking your conversations.

Lido Bar

Deck parties, lively quizzes, cooking demos – this outdoor bar next to the pool and Lido Restaurant is the place to be when you want to let your hair down.

Mezzanine Bar & Lounge

On the top level of the show lounge, this is the place to get your drinks before taking a seat for the nights entertainment.

Broadway Show Lounge

The 2-storey show lounge is the ships’ biggest space and our professional show team pulls out all the stops to keep you entertained every evening. They fly in comedy acts from the UK while you’re on board, and you can expect West End-style production numbers with big voices and flamboyant dance routines.

Casino

Roulette and blackjack tables and fruit machines make this a popular hangout for the after-dinner crowd. Beginners can sign up for casino game lessons.

High Spirits

This traditional lounge is the heart of the ship. It’s the place for light-hearted quizzes, bingo, and game shows during the day. Later on, it turns in to a late-night disco with live music that’ll keep you on your feet long in to the night.

Explorers' Lounge

You’ll be relaxed in next to no time once you’ve hunkered down in this quiet lounge. It’s traditionally furnished with comfy bucket chairs and banquettes, and nautical memorabilia dotted around and about.

Pure Portrait Studio

This is just the ticket if you want to take home a special memento of your time onboard. Choose to have a portrait shoot in the indoor studio, or a more relaxed shoot outside, with the ship and sea in the background.

Photo Gallery

Stop by the gallery to view photos of your time on board and find out about booking a private portrait session.

Browsers' Corner

This is a quiet place with internet access for keeping in touch with friends and family back home. If you’re short of reading material, it’s also stocked with shelves of books. You’re welcome to borrow whatever takes your fancy.

Broad Street Shops

This parade of boutiques is open when the ship is at sea. You can browse a great range of jewellery, perfume, and designer outfits. And keep checking back, as special offers change on a daily basis.

Card & Reading Room

Curl up with a good book and enjoy an afternoon of reading, or team up with a partner for a game of cards in this quiet room. There are a dozen or so tables and a cupboard stacked with board games – old favourites and new.

Spend the day taking it easy: relax by the swimming pool with a drink in your hand, head to the spa for a massage or spend some time in the saunas.

Oceans Spa & Beauty Salon

Head to the salon to treat yourself to a new hairdo and manicure to make sure you’re looking your best for the formal night. While you’re here, why not pop in to the well-equipped spa for some me-time? Their beauty consultants will advise you on the right treatments or massages for you.

Oceans Gym

This is a gym and sauna rolled in to one. When you’re done working out on the treadmill, there’s plenty of time for taking it nice and easy in the sauna.

Pool

The main pool is one for all the family. There’s a bar and grill to hand, plus plenty of loungers for soaking up the sun

Whirlpool

The whirlpool bath next to the adults-only pool is the place for a relaxing soak.

Adults' Pool

Oceans Pool on deck 8 is just for adults. Because it’s at the stern, it benefits from excellent sea views.

Sports Deck

Right at the top of the ship, this outdoor teak deck opens during daylight hours and is devoted to sports like basketball, football, and table tennis.

Thomson Cruises have worked on every last detail when it comes to getting the kids onboard. That means family-sized and inter-connecting cabins, buffet lunches featuring favourites like pizza and spaghetti bolognese, and a great mix of activities.

They lay on table tennis and football tournaments, fun quizzes, and early evening shows during their sea days. And when the ship is in port, children up to the age of 12 get discounted rates on some of their exciting shore excursions.

Every ship has a free Thomson Kids’ Club, too. So mum and dad can have time together while the little ones fill their days with treasure hunts, face-painting, and stories.

Thomson Kids' Club

The accredited staff at the onboard Thomson Kids’ Club do a brilliant job keeping youngsters entertained. There’s messy time with arts and crafts, dressing-up, movie nights and pyjama parties. Trips to the bridge to high-five the captain and behind-the-scenes backstage tours also make the line-up. They’ll even take your little ones to breakfast a couple of times a week while you get a lie-in. Groups are split in to 2 or 3, depending on ages and numbers. Tots is for 3 to 5-year-olds and Team is for 6 to 8 years – sometimes these 2 are combined. They’ve also got lots of activities that hit the mark for the 9 to 11 age group, in Tribe. Best of all, the club is free.

Graffiti's Teen Area

Open in high season, teens meet here to hang out and discuss their plans for the day.

Kids' Pool

The main pool on deck 5 is paired with a little pool for kids to splash in. This is one for all the family.

Showtime Stage School

Wannabe Harry Styles and budding Lady Gagas will be in their element at the Showtime Stage School. Here, 9 to 16-year-olds can learn the tricks of the trade from the professionals, as the onboard show team puts them through their paces with acting, dancing and singing workshops. At the end of the cruise, there may even be a live performance. Three 90-minute lessons cost £35 per child. Just so you know, though, they only run if there’s enough demand.

Thomson the Dog

Keep your eyes peeled for Thomson the Dog during your family holiday. He’s been known to pop up at the poolside for story time, and he’s rather fond of a photo session or 2. 

Family-Friendly Shore Excursions

One of the perks of cruising is visiting lots of new places one after the other. They’ve got a range of shore excursions for the whole family. For little ones, they organise trips to waterparks, aquariums and beaches, plus once-in-a-lifetime experiences like swimming with stingrays and dolphins. If you’re travelling with children aged 10 and over, there’s also the option of 2 wheels. Most of their ships have mountain bikes onboard. At almost every port, you can join an experienced guide and pedal your way around the best sights.

Kid's Dining

Dining doesn’t have to be a formal affair onboard. Their buffet restaurants have a huge choice of dishes for a relaxed family get-together. For children, there are favourites like pasta and fries on the menu, with ice-cream cones for pudding. The afternoon teas – all gooey cakes and freshly baked scones – are a firm favourite, and there are regular barbecue lunches out on deck. Don’t miss our Baked Alaska Parade, either.
