By ,   April 13, 2016 ,   Cruise Industry

Thomson Cruises announced that its newest addition will be named TUI Discovery (initially announced as "Thomson Discovery"). The name is part of the re-brand to see the whole transition of Thomson to TUI over the next 18 months and part of the strategy to introduce the TUI brand to UK clients.

TUI Discovery will be the first of Thomson Cruises fleet to boast an all-inclusive drinks package as standard, and giving cruisers a wider choice of entertainment and dining included in the price of their vacation.

The TUI Discovery ship will also see the introduction of new technology to personalise and modernise the onboard experience. Passengers will be able to summon favourite tipples at the touch of a button from the sun loungers on adults-only deck, The Veranda, as well as to make dinner, entertainment and spa reservations at self-service kiosks, browse and buy photos of the cruise. A hi-tech shore excursion shop will showcase what to see in the destinations the ship will visit.
