Malaga and Tenerife named as new homeports for TUI Discovery 2

Thomson Cruises has unveiled its latest ship TUI Discovery 2, will homeport in Malaga, Spain and Tenerife for summer 2017, when it joins the fleet next year.

Holidays on-board the new ship will go on sale from July 21 this year.
The ship will sail from Malaga in May 2017, visiting destinations such as Barcelona, Valencia, Ibiza, Porto, Lisbon and Marseille.

It will reposition to Tenerife in September, visiting ports in the Canaries, Morocco and Madeira on itineraries including Iberian Treasures, Continental Coasts and Canarian Flavours.

To offer customers more flexibility and choice, Thomson has extended its cruise and stay portfolio, so customers can increase their holiday by three, four or seven nights and spend more time exploring the destination.

Those traveling on itineraries based in Tenerife can choose from 17 hotels, including the luxury 5T+ Sensatori Resort Tenerife, whilst customers on Malaga based itineraries have a selection of 12 hotels, including the adults-only 4T Sensimar Riviera in Costa del Sol, Spain.

Helen Caron, managing director of Thomson Cruises, said: “I’m delighted to unveil Malaga and Tenerife as homeports for our newest ship TUI Discovery 2. Both ports offer the perfect base for families, friends and couples, looking to explore stunning destinations.

“At Thomson Cruises we are committed to offering customers a holiday that suits their every need and are delivering this through a great mix of destinations, flexible durations, cruise and stay options as well as fantastic onboard facilities. The introduction of TUI Discovery 2 to our fleet in 2017 continues our modernisation and transformation strategy.”

This new ship will be identical to its sister ship TUI Discovery, which launched lastmonth. It will have a capacity of 1,832 (double occupancy) across 915 cabins, and nearly 40 per cent of cabins will have balconies.

All-inclusive drinks will also come as standard on TUI Discovery 2 alongside a selection of premium drinks, all included in the price of their holiday.

Thomson Cruises parent company TUI UK & Ireland recently purchased the TUI Discovery 2 from Royal Caribbean International, as part of their four ships in four years investment strategy in their cruise line.
