Grammy award winning popstar Jess Glynne performed for hundreds of travel agents at the launch of new Thomson Cruises ship Tui Discovery.

More than 700 agents were invited to sample the new ship, which underwent a significant refit after being acquired from Royal Caribbean International.

The christening celebrations were put together by the choreographers behind the opening and closing ceremonies of the London 2012 Olympics.

The move to name the newest addition to the Thomson Cruises’ fleet Tui Discovery is part of the rebrand which will see the whole of Thomson transition to Tui over the next 18 months.

Thomson Cruises recently announced the expansion of its fleet with the acquisition of Legend of the Seas, also from Royal Caribbean. 

Thomson Cruises will operate the vessel, to be renamed Tui Discovery 2, from May 2017.

Managing director of Thomson Cruises Helen Caron said: “The launch of Tui Discovery marks an exciting time for Thomson Cruises, so it was an honour to have Jess Glynne join us to celebrate what has been a fantastic night for everyone involved.

“Tui Discovery is a real game-changer for us and shows our commitment to delivering unforgettable holidays that are personalised for each of our customers. We’re incredibly proud of being able to offer truly memorable experiences in some of the world’s most exciting and exotic destinations and tonight has given a real taster of that.”
