Formerly Holland America's Nieuw Amsterdam, this elegant, classic cruiseliner brings you 21st century cruising pleasure. It has all the modern facilities you could wish for - from a two storey show lounge to the fantastic health club overlooking the ocean. Hungry? You'll find everything from 24-hour dining to a sophisticated à la carte restaurant for that romantic occasion.
Some aspects of Thomson Spirit will be familiar to anyone who has cruised with them before on The Topaz or The Emerald. A friendly atmosphere, for example, great cuisine, and crew who work that bit harder to make you feel at home. There's the first-rate entertainment you've come to expect from Thomson, with sizzling shows, top comedy and recent-release movies.
Best of all, Thomson Spirit is the same length and size of ships normally carrying 1500 passengers but she'll take over 200 less. This means more room for you to stretch out on the sundeck, larger cabins, more privacy, more space for fun and games, and even more attention from those obliging staff.
*Greater sundeck space
*More rooms for activities and entertainment
*More private areas
*A more personal service than many ships of a similar capacity can offer
