Thomson Dream Cruise Review by M ELTIS: Thompson Dream Caribbean cruise
Thompson Dream Caribbean cruise
Flight to Barbados from Newcastle, excellent, easy check in procedure,didnt see luggage any more untill it was delivered to cabin not long after we had boarded the ship.Boarding formality was straight forward no long wait.
The itinery was excellent, ten different islands, so we were ashore every day with only one full day at sea.Used local transport to get around,quite reasonably priced.We have cruised the caribbean several times and on this occasion St Maarten was the only island previously visited.
The ship,"Thompson Dream" not quite I am sorry to say! She is a very tired old ship in need of restoration.Our cabin was clean, a bit dark due to the old wall panels.Some of the public areas were needing new carpets, we actually saw a crew member colouring in worn bits with a felt tip pen!! The bar areas etc were all clean and comfortable, but in need of an updating.
Entertainment,crew and food quality were all good.The food in the Orion restaurant was particularly More good,with first class service.
All in all it was a good cruise and value for money we got a cheap late deal,however if the full price had been paid we would have been dissapointed. Less

Cabin review: OU6174
Cabin 6174 was clean but needed updating it was showing signs of "tiredness". Other cabins we saw were worse. A Couple we met showed us their bathroom, it had a bath, the surface of which was cracked and chipped and looked as if it could not be cleaned properly,very poor!
