Aegean Odyssey

AEGEAN ODYSSEY is apremium class ship that is being especially rebuilt to cater for cruising in the coastal waters of the central and southern Mediterranean. The vessel provides the best features of a mid-size ship such as passenger space, a choice of restaurants and stability in inclement weather. It also has the personal service and intimate surroundings of a small ship. Other advantages of the ship’s size are that it is able visit ports that are too small for larger vessels, navigate around the scenic islands of the Adriatic and Mediterranean and can also pass through the Corinth Canal. Originally a mid-size vessel carrying up to 570 passengers, Aegean Odyssey’s new configuration includes generously sized suites, junior suites and staterooms with and without balconies. This means she now accommodates fewer than 380. By creating these new staterooms we will add a dimension of luxury to the vessel and this has enabled us to create a special level of accommodation entitled “Concierge Class”. These guests will benefit from a few extra features to those enjoyed by all passengers on the ship. Classically elegant but far from stuffy and formal, Aegean Odyssey has been designed to offer the sophisticated traveller every comfort at sea. LIFE ON BOARD: FROM BOOKS TO YOGA Aegean Odyssey has a beautifully appointed and well-stocked library. As well as a selection of books covering classical history and literature, the library also has range of modern fiction, magazines and newspapers. For those passengers who want to keep in touch with friends, check the markets or find out what’s happening in the world, there is also an internet centre on board.

Thomson Dream

Spacious. Stylish. Modern. Meet the newest member of the Thomson fleet... Thomson Dream. It's our biggest and most luxurious ship yet. It goes without saying that it comes with the Thomson stamp of quality - food that scores top marks, service that really goes that extra mile and entertainment that ranges from Broadway-style shows to late-night discos. But it's got a few surprises in store, too. Take the cabins for example. They've got interior-designed good looks. Think neutral colours accented by bold feature walls, pale wood furniture and the kind of trimmings you'd expect from a top-drawer hotel - safes, hairdryers and minibars. It's a similar story in the shared spaces, where pale colours and modern accessories set a contemporary scene. Plus all that extra space means there's plenty of choice. There are large bars made for mingling and cosy corners ready for a night cap. As for nice-to-have extras, expect adults-only areas where peace and quiet reigns, and a sun terrace with a swimming pool and a retractable roof. A stay on Thomson Dream is the elegant way to sail. In June and September Thomson Dream is exclusively for adults.

Thomson Majesty

Couples love Thomson Majesty, and it's easy to see why. The ship's calling cards include a great range of restaurants, sophisticated bars, and an indulgent spa featuring a his 'n' hers treatment room for massages à deux.

Thomson Spirit

Thomson Spirit is the longest-serving member of our fleet and is as popular now as it’s ever been. Part of the appeal is that it’s one of our smaller ships, so it’s got a great homely feel about it. The crew will treat you like one of the family from the moment you step on board. Not one to stand still, though, it’s recently had a makeover that’s added 19 Balcony Cabins and given the public areas a more contemporary look. The portfolio here is pure gold – think fine dining, the fantastic Oceans Gym with ocean views, and entertainment that includes everything from Broadway-style shows to live cabaret and a full daytime activity programme.
