To celebrate the launch of two newly renovated ships Thomson Cruises has brought freerunning to the high seas.

Created by free running team 3RUN the short film shows Parkour professionals leaping over stairwells, jumping from balconies and scaling the side of the ship.

“We wanted to do something completely different to showcase the renovations. Partnering with 3RUN gave us the opportunity to highlight the multi-million pound makeovers in a truly entertaining way. We’ve moved towards a more contemporary look and feel onboard both the Thomson Dream and Celebration with refurbished cabins, revamped restaurants and bars and a luxurious spa and wanted to show it off in an equally modern way,” commented managing director of Thomson Cruises, Fraser Ellacott.

The stunts aim to give potential holidaymakers a unique look at the makeover aboard the Thomson Dream. Filmed against a Caribbean backdrop the film ends with a glimpse of the 3RUN crew relaxing with cocktails on a nearby beach, having left the ship and swam ashore.

Chase Armitage, CEO of 3RUN, added: “The new look Thomson Dream provided the ideal free running playground for us to create some never done before stunts that show off both the ship and the skills of our team. In true action film style we’ve tried to create content that will entertain every generation.”
