Football. Love it or hate it – you’re in for a treat this summer with Thomson Cruises and Island Cruises.

England are on their way to South Africa this summer to take on the world at the 2010 FIFA World Cup. No doubt many of you will love this month packed full of football, which only comes round every four years. Others of you will love the four years in between. Either way, a Thomson cruise or Island cruise is the perfect choice for a summer holiday this year. Football fanatics can catch all the England World Cup games. Whilst there’s plenty to keep you going if you’d like to avoid the beautiful game at all costs.

If football drives you mad…

Enjoying a cocktail at the bar

Don’t despair – our package cruise holidays offer plenty of things to do and places to go without a half-time orange or a final whistle in sight. We guarantee that none of our fantastic evening entertainment in the show lounges will be affected by the games. In fact, we’re even laying on extra entertainment for those who aren’t so keen on the beautiful game. And of course, there are endless other opportunities for relaxation on your cruise. Whether it’s finding a quiet spot on deck to read, lazing by the pool, or sipping a cocktail as you get ready to enjoy your next destination…
