We wanted to try the transatlantic after 7 previous Thomson cruises. After booking the itinerary was changed - these things happen. We were informed we owed £37.84 (we did not) oh it was a computer glitch! The flight was fine. ... Read more

We had a brilliant time; Flight to Jamaica was delayed slightly, boarding the ship delayed due to RTA. Went to Honduras and Mexico, it was amazing to wake up at these paradise locations. We did a number of excursions, visit to see and ... Read more

We chose this cruise mainly because of the ports of call but also the price and dates. As a teacher I have to take school holidays so am always looking for better value holidays. We have cruised with both Thomson and Royal Caribbean in the ... Read more

When I check reviews written on this site I generally discard the best reviews as some people will be happy with a very basic holiday (cardboard box int middle of road!) I also discard the worst reviews as some people are never satisfied ... Read more

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

Firstly I will say, as I have travelled on NCL ships I was comparing. The first night I was so deflated at being on such an old ship. It really is run down and dated. Although the cabins are modern and comfortable. The 2nd day, ... 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

It has taken me 40 years to get my husband on a cruise. I was praying it would not be a disaster. It was great. We did a back to back Cuban Fusion and Pride of Panama. Fantastic itinerary. The ship is old but kept perfectly clean. ... 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
