Ports of call offered Greece and Turkey. We had previously sailed on the Thomson Island Escape 2 years ago, and the Dream offered a ship which had improved on all of the bits I wasn't happy about last time. Bigger ship with 2 pools; more ... Read more

The Thompson Dream cruise liner is a very dated vessel and will be taken out of the fleet next year not before time. They seemed to be more paint than steel in the structure of the ship, but it was adequate for what we needed we had two ... Read more
