Worst cruise ever been on. Service was dreadful, if you were lucky enough to find a wine waiter,you had to wait ages for drinks. Gave up on occasions and queued at the bars along with others who had the same idea. One of our party ... Read more

Having been on a number of Thomsons cruise in the past (with no problems) we decided to try the Enchanting Vistas repositioning cruise on the Dream. Wish we hadn't bothered now. The only good thing about that ship was disembarkation! ... Read more
