By ,   October 22, 2015 ,   Cruise Industry

Thomson Cruises revealed a number of itinerary changes for its fleet in 2016, including a new homeport for the new Thomson Discovery.

After spending summer months sailing from Palma, Thomson Discovery, which debuts in June, will be homeported in Barbados for the winter 2016-2017 season.

The 902-passenger ship, which is currently sailing as Royal Caribbean's Splendour of the Seas, will sail three different itineraries from its new homeport in Barbados including the "no sea day" Seven Shores itinerary.

It is Thomson Cruises' first Caribbean itinerary to feature no full day at sea, and ports of call include Bridgetown, Barbados; Fort de France, Martinique; Roseau, Dominica; Pointe a Pitre, Guadeloupe; Castries, St Lucia; Kingstown, St Vincent and St George's, Grenada.

It is part of Thomson Cruises' ambition of expanding its portfolio of destination intensive itineraries.

Thomson Celebration will move to its new homeport in Dubai, as previously announced. Thomson Dream will stay in its homeport in Montego Bay, Jamaica and will sail three itineraries.

Thomson Cruises will offer free all inclusive upgrades (subject to availability) on all winter 2016-2017 cruises.
