Thomson Cruises’ ship Tui Discovery will homeport in the UK for the first time and has unveiled its 2018 programme.
Discovery will homeport in Newcastle in May 2018 and Southampton in September.
The cruise line’s 2018 programme has 15 new ports of call including Monaco, Ancona and Skiathos Town and goes on sale on April 20.
Managing director of Thomson Cruises, Richard Sofer, said: “We have a fantastic range of destinations on offer, with a real focus on hidden gems in the Mediterranean and a little closer to home in northern Europe.
“The move to bring Tui Discovery to both the north and the south of the UK also shows our commitment to offering choice and flexibility to our customers, giving them the opportunity to sail from a region close to home, as well as offering flights to other destinations from local airports.”
From Newcastle, Discovery will have a number of Baltic sailings to the Norwegian fjords and cities including Stockholm, Sweden; Tallinn, Estonia and Reykjavik, Iceland.
From Southampton it will sail four itineraries; Fantastic Fjords, Baltic Treasures, European Experience and Seeking the Northern Lights.
Thomson Celebration will move to Dubrovnik for summer 2018 where it will operate an adults-only programme including a no-sea day itinerary.
Tui Discovery 2 will debut in Corfu Town for summer 2018, sailing four itineraries in the Eastern Mediterranean, and Thomson Cruises’ newest ship, currently sailing as Mein Schiff 1 for Tui Cruises, will homeport in Palma, Majorca alongside Thomson Dream.
