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

We are relatively experienced cruisers. This is our 2nd Thomson cruise. Passengers are mostly from the UK. The on board currency is Sterling, which may be an advantage over $US. You should expect that the ... Read more

Having read some previous reviews, our expectations were not too high. We chose the cruise because of the itinerary. Have to say, there was very little to find fault with. We had had a week in a hotel in Jamaica first, were picked up ... Read more

We encountered the most surly reception staff ever and public areas air conditioning that could cause frostbite. There was dust on ledges in the Orion dining room and we found the menus basic and unexciting. Lots of lobster tail meals at ... Read more

We went on the Thomson Dream for the first time and read the reviews before we went. We were a bit upset at some of those that we read and it was with trepidation that we embarked on this trip. We need not have been worried at all ... Read more

AS I said it was the first time on this ship and we were a bit apprehensive after reading some of the reviews but we needn't have worried as it was really good. As an elderly disabled lady the cabin was an adapted one and there was ... Read more
