Cruise Ship Entertainment Jobs - Thomson Cruises Profile


Thomson Cruises is a brand of Thomson Holiday - UK based tour operator, part of TUI Travel PLC. The fleet of Thomson Cruises currently consist of five cruise ships which offer budget cruises around Europe. The company had initially entered the cruise market in 1973, terminated operations in 1976 and restarted the cruise line in 1995, using chartered cruise ships from Louis Cruise Line. Since Thomson Cruises parent company TUI Travel PLC acquired Royal Caribbean's share in Island Cruises in late 2008, the MS Island Escape joined the Thomson Cruises fleet in early 2009. Thomson Cruises is orientated mainly towards the UK market and this is where most of the passengers aboard their cruise ships come from.
