OK the ship is not brand new but you know that when you book, however it is excellently maintained, spotlessly clean. The staff could not be more helpful and polite especially the ones who keep the cabins in tip top order. The whole ... Read more

This was our first cruise and we chose it for the itinerary it covered and also the short duration. This cruise is not bad value for the money you have paid especially if you have the free drinks package included. The food choice is good ... Read more

This was our first cruise. We chose Thomson as it looked good value for money. We were also told that they were less formal than some of the other cruise lines. We chose a short cruise around the Aegean Sea. Initially this included ... Read more

Chose this cruise because of the ports of call, all of which were superb, especially loved Venice and Split. Unfortunately we were disappointed with the ship, it was dated in parts. Our cabin was spacious and kept immaculate by our ... Read more

I chose this cruise for its itinerary. Venice was wonderful and the Adriatic ports were oh so beautiful. The ship itself was old and dated and through the day the public lounges were SO cold. To the point of wearing a jacket! When ... Read more

Never finding a seven day cruise long enough my husband and I chose back to back cruises, Aegean Meze and Adriatic Explorer, that pulled in easy to access ports of call. It was our first time on the Dream and we were glad it wasn't any ... Read more

From The moment that you step on-board you move into a bygone age of service the staff work tirelessly to ensure that ever guest feels special. Where nothing that is too much trouble and the guests whims are catered for from getting a ... Read more

We chose this cruise as being first time cruisers, we wanted to choose a simple itinerary and a ship on which we would not feel daunted. We flew from Gatwick to Corfu and collected luggage and were directed by the Thomson reps to a ... Read more

I have been cruising for 25 years on numerous different cruise lines and cruise ships. This has got to be my worst experience by far. Have been on other Thomson ships but this was by far and away the worst. The service both in the ... Read more

We approached this cruise with some trepidation. We had done the Bay of Biscay a couple of times in rough weather on the big car ferries so no problem there. But we had not used Thomson flights or holidays for some ten years following a ... Read more

Cuban fusion We chose this cruise because of the itinerary. I wasn't looking forward to it after reading all the negative reviews. Arriving in Jamaica was a hoot, ok filling imigration forms in a corridor is not ideal but ... Read more

Arriving at Montego Bay was by a beautiful low inflight over the water to land at the airport. The paperwork for transit via Jamaica to the ship took some time and the terminal was hot and sweaty - until the coaches showed up and started ... Read more

This was our 5th cruise with Thomson, second on the Dream, and was our best cruise overall. Embarkation was OK, taking about an hour from the airport to getting to the cabin. But at least we didn't have to collect and carry our cases from ... Read more

Yes - the ship is a little tired, but that is the only fault we could find. If you are looking for a formal cruise with Broadway'esque' entertainment then this isn't the one for you, but the staff, food and itinerary were second to ... Read more

We chose the cruise because we had never been to this part of the World. We are not avid Cruisers and have been a a few only. It is a good way to see parts of the World and helps make up one's mind if they are worth re-visiting. The ... Read more
