Larry Lamb and his ‘Cruise Mates’

I’m A Celebrity star Larry Lamb explores the beauty of Spain in new video series for Thomson Cruises. Whilst sailing on the TUI Discovery 2, Larry discovered an array of vibrant and interesting locals – his ‘Cruise Mates’.

In a series of three films, the good people at Thomson Cruises, followed Larry tackling Flamenco in Barcelona, cycling through the hills of Palma and fishing in Ibiza…

Interestingly…a recent world-first study from Thomson Cruises and the Human Nature Research Lab at Yale University, demonstrated that Brits who bond with up to five new people from different cultures whilst on holiday, can experience a happiness boost of 10%.

Speaking of his experience on Thomson Cruises’ newest ship TUI Discovery 2, which include an outdoor movie screen, rock climbing wall and huge range of restaurants, bars and lounges, Larry commented: “I have been lucky enough to travel the world during my career, meeting a diverse group of people from across the globe, but I’ve never had the opportunity to experience a cruise. After spending a week on TUI Discovery 2, I learnt that cruising really is an incredible way of seeing the world, meeting new people and broadening horizons.”

He added: “I teamed up with Thomson Cruises to show that people aren’t restricted to just staying on the ship – there is a wealth of amazing people from different cultures and backgrounds that cruise-goers can meet when they step ashore at a new destination. Hopefully the films we have created will inspire holidaymakers to try cruising and meet their very own Cruise Mates.”
