Thomson cruises tees off with new cruise and golf itinerary

February 11, 2014

Golf enthusiasts can now book Thomson Cruises' Colourful Coasts itinerary on Thomson Celebration, sailing in March 2014, with a dedicated golfing programme. The cruise, which sails around the Canary Islands and Morocco, will be the first Thomson Cruises itinerary offering the optional extra and enables customers to play three courses, in three countries, in just seven days.

The package includes 18 holes on golf courses across the Canary Islands and Morocco:  Meloneras Golf Club, Gran Canaria; Santo da Serra Golf Club, Madeira and Golf du Soleil, Morocco.

If that wasn't enough, free transfers to and from the ship, a golf host on-board, secure storage of golf clubs on the ship and free transportation of golf clubs on flights from the UK is also included.

Prizes are also up for grabs, with the 18-hole matches played in 'four ball' format, with players pitted against each other in pairs. Players must be over 18 and can join as a group or as an individual, with solo golf players assigned a partner on board.  Tee times are staggered and the minimum handicap for gentlemen and ladies is 30.

As an added extra there will be a number of exclusive on-board activities for customers who purchase the golf package, as well as their non-golf travelling companions. The on-board golf host will provide welcome drinks for golfers to meet their competition, a 'Farewell dinner' to celebrate the winners and exclusive spa treatment offers for companions who are happier being pampered than putting on the green.

Managing Director for Thomson Cruises, Helen Caron said: 'We know our customers want a holiday that is designed with them in mind and tailoring this package exclusively to golf enthusiasts demonstrates our commitment to offering unique holiday experiences. I am sure the cruise will be a huge success with golfers, and hope to see some fantastic matches played on these stunning courses."
