As the review title states, this was our second cruise on this ship. Itinery was good but the ship leaves a lot to be desired. Flights and cruise check in good. Cabin (outside deluxe) deck 5 was quite spacious for 3 of us and seemed o.k ... Read more

We chose Thomson's as we thought as first timers we could rely on them to meet our expectations and the Caribbean Mayan Treasures cruise sounded interesting and we should have good weather. Our journey from the airport in Montego Bay to ... Read more

We booked our cruise with Thomson Dream late as it was the only one available that included Havana in Cuba. We were wary of some of the previous comments on this site but found the cruise to be excellent for what we paid. Although the ship ... Read more

Having been on a few Thomson cruises in the past we knew that they are at the budget end of the spectrum & we therefore did not get too excited. Overall you get what you pay for except the "drinks package".If you buy the ... Read more

This was our 1st time on a Thomson ship but a Canadian company was offering a package including air, cruise, transfers & no tipping so we decided to try it as the ports were very appealing. We flew into Montego Bay with their ... Read more

We boarded the ship to receive a letter in the cabin advising of Noro Virus. Please note that if one of your party is ill, both must remain in the cabin for 24 hours. We have therefore paid to look at Mexico through a cabin porthole ... Read more

My very first cruise was on a Thomson ship over 18 years ago and I got the cruising bug. Over the years I've sailed on several P&O and Cunard ships and a Celebrity one last year. I was a bit dubious about using Thomson again but I ... Read more

We have just got back from a week on the Thomson Dream. Visited Jamaica, Honduras, Belize and Mexico. It is an older boat but it is very well maintained and spotlessly clean. Beautiful brass and wood décor gives a decadent ... Read more

We are relatively experienced cruisers. This is our 2nd Thomson cruise. Passengers are mostly from the UK. The on board currency is Sterling, which may be an advantage over $US. You should expect that the ... Read more

Having read some previous reviews, our expectations were not too high. We chose the cruise because of the itinerary. Have to say, there was very little to find fault with. We had had a week in a hotel in Jamaica first, were picked up ... Read more

We encountered the most surly reception staff ever and public areas air conditioning that could cause frostbite. There was dust on ledges in the Orion dining room and we found the menus basic and unexciting. Lots of lobster tail meals at ... Read more
