The Apollo Group Expands Partnership With TUI To Include Two Additional Vessels

Will Provide Full Range of Services on Thomson Dream and Thomson Celebration

MIAMI, May 12, 2014 — The Apollo Group, a best-in-class custom hotel operations provider for cruise lines around the world, announced today that it has been selected to provide a full range of concession services on two additional vessels: the Thomson Dream and Thomson Celebration.

The new multi-year contract expands upon Apollo’s already existing seven-year partnership with the vessels’ parent company TUI Travel PLC, which included servicing the overall hospitality requirements of the Island Escape cruise ship. Services for the Thomson Dream and Thomson Celebration will be provided through Apollo’s affiliate, Britannia Ship Services.

“After seven years of service with TUI, we are delighted to have been selected by TUI to provide hotel services aboard two additional vessels in their fleet,” said Jose Ramon Barrera, president of The Apollo Group. “Since the very first day on the Island Escape, our focus has been to offer guests the absolute best standards of food and service. We greatly appreciate the trust TUI has placed in the Apollo Group to offer the same standards on two more of their vessels.”

The Thomson Dream (1506 passengers, with 635 crew) and the Thomson Celebration (1254 passengers, with 535 crew) offer a traditional cruise atmosphere with a range of dining options in sophisticated restaurants as well as Gala Nights hosted by the Captain.
