Thomson Cruises Fleet Changes Coming?

Thomson Majesty (photo: Jorge Ferreira)According to TUI Group’s Chief Executive Friedrich Joussen, Thomson Cruises may be the next cruise expansion project for the travel company, which also operates Hapag-Lloyd Cruises and TUI Cruises in a joint venture with Royal Caribbean.

Joussen was quoted as saying that Thomson has older ships, and that they were looking at moving to the “TUI model” – which could include building new for Thomson, or perhaps a fleet upgrade.

TUI started with two modern Celebrity ships before building new.

Most recently Thomson has spent big bucks to modernize its existing fleet by adding balconies and upgrading interiors.
