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

We paid for an upgrade to outside cabin but failed to choose one. We got 7213. Right at the back. It shook and rattled so loudly we barely slept for a week. It smelled of cigarette smoke at times and of sewerage the rest. It is directly ... Read more

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
