Thomson Cruises Brings You Electric Sunsets – The 80’s Cruise Weekender!

Calling all 80’s super fans!

Dig out the leg-warmers, headbands and neon paints – Thomson Cruises is bringing you a cruise weekender like no other! Get ready for Electric Sunsets – a hot, new adults-only 80’s music cruise onboard TUI Discovery!

Setting sail from Newcastle on 1st September 2018, cruisers are in for a weekend of music throwbacks, colourful gladrags and serious amounts of dancing. Plus, this sailing is All Inclusive!

Sara Cox, radio DJ and 80s super fan, kicks things off with her ‘Just Can’t Get Enough’ show, featuring live performances from Carol Decker of T’Pau. And famous for his summers in Ibiza, KISS FM pioneer Trevor Nelson will surprise and delight you with his 80s soul DJ set – you won’t want to miss this.

The sailing will feature deck parties hosted by popular DJ’s Sara Cox & Trevor Nelson

Fancy a pool party?

On two nights, you’ll be able to attend Ministry of Sound’s ultimate sunset sessions. Make a splash in the pool as high-frequency 80s house favourites play in full swing, or simply sit back and soak up the atmosphere in the Glasshouse pool venue.

What’s more, there’s the Guilty Pleasures party with DJ Sean Rowley, playing the best tunes of the decade with a fusion of pop, rock, hip-hop and R&B.

That’s not all! On top of all the music-ey-goodness you’ll also be able to enjoy classic 80’s movies, tribute acts, 80s kareoke and even a silent disco. That’s aside from all the fun you’ll be having during the day time, exploring Amsterdam’s criss-crossing canals and the chocolate shops of Bruges. Oh – and to top it all off, you’ll be All Inclusive! Can there be much more packed into this amazing weekend?!
