Having been a regular Thomson Cruiser pre 2011, I feel sad leaving this review. It certainly wasn't a 'Dream'. Cutbacks are evident everywhere! Extremely disappointing. Positives were staff who tried hard but were too few to give the ... Read more

Our flight from Manchester left a little late but we arrived on time thanks to a good tail wind. The luggage reclaim was horrendous - we waited 50 minutes at the airport but after that everything went smoothly. The staff were as amazing ... Read more

This ship as far as I could see has not been refurbished since the late 70's or early 80's. Our cabin had dark wood panelling, very dull. In one bar for the whole week we were on board there was a air blower constantly blowing on the ... Read more
