Larry Lamb meets his Cruise Mates

Larry Lamb was challenged by Thomson Cruises to embark on a voyage of discovery across the Mediterranean. Whilst sailing on TUI Discovery 2, Larry discovered an array of vibrant and interesting locals – his Cruise Mates.

In a series of three films, we followed Larry’s adventures in Barcelona, Palma and Ibiza, as he stepped ashore to explore what each destination had to offer, meeting an eclectic and diverse mixture of local people who all had their own story to tell.

His journey shows it’s not just about the places you go but the people you meet and memories you make when you step ashore.


The first port of call was cosmopolitan Barcelona, where Larry set off to discover the city’s most authentic arts and culture.


In Palma de Mallorca, Larry was keen to discover a selection of outdoor pursuits within the historic and vibrant city.


In his final Cruise Mates destination and inspired by his upbringing in a fish and chip shop in London, Larry went in search of the freshest seafood on the bohemian island of Ibiza.
