Cruising from Malaga

Those of you that like cruising will know that you cannot get many cruises from Malaga these days.  One of the cruise companies that do use Malaga as its base are TUI (aka Thomson).  However when I tried to book a cruise with them my agent (UK based) said that they will not accept bookings without a flight from the UK which is included in the price,  This seems ridiculous to me, that we have to fly to the UK to fly back again!  Have any Digamites cruised with TUI out of Malaga? if so how did they arrange it.  Also, what was it like.  This is a puzzle I am determined to get to the bottom of, I don’t like Pulmantur or Costa and this seems to be the only other option.
