Services Available – Cruises from Malaga

We have done 5 Thomson/TUI cruises from Malaga – the last being 6 weeks ago on TUI Discovery 2 (the latest addition to the Thomson fleet) and yesterday we booked again for late October on the same ship.  We are also booked on the TUI Discovery 1 sailing from Malaga to Southampton next May.

Your agent has given you incorrect information.  You used to have to book flightless ‘cabin only’ cruises via the Thomson call centre but now can do this on-line at Cruises Only 2017 / 2018 | Thomson Cruises (scroll down to Malaga).  Booking is a quick and easy process, the only problem being that, although the booking form accepts a Spanish address, for some reason it won’t take a Spanish phone number so we use a friends UK number them email our Spanish number to pretravelservices@thomson.co.uk who immediately amend the details on their computer.   On your embarkation day you can join the ship at Malaga port any time from 10.30 onwards.

TUI have cruises out of Malaga until w/c 19th November this year and from March 2018.  There were no planned Thomson cruises out of Malaga for Summer 2018 but it has just been announced that ‘Spirit’ will be sailing then – older, with a bit of faded grandeur, but a lovely ship and great crew (the crew are an asset on all Thomson/TUI cruises).

Hope this helps – feel free to email me at

casaianda at yahoo dot co dot uk

if you need any further information.
