As you well know here at Global Grasshopper we are all about discovering the hidden gems and steering clear of the obvious tourist traps. Cruising has long been associated with either rowdy 18-30 trips packed with brits or sedate voyages for the over 60’s. Thompson Travel have taken it upon themselves to reinvent the cruise with its new ship TUI Discovery 2 and a series of short video’s entitled ‘Cruise Mates’, challenging the charismatic and popular TV personality Larry Lamb (aka Mick Shipman from Gavin & Stacey) to get out on a voyage of discovery in The Mediterranean. He was challenged to meet an eclectic bunch of different locals in Barcelona, Palma and Ibiza, his adventures all perfectly captured by a highly watchable video series.
These charming little snapshot videos feature Larry Lamb setting a fine example of how to make the most of each port.
