Ship Facts: Thomson Dream Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Thomson Dream Deck Plans
Mediterranean Medley
Thomson Dream is a mid size ship, owned by Costa and leased to Thomson for ten years. She is 27 years old and showing signs of wear although I believe she is to have an upgrade later this year.

Our cabin was spacious with plenty of hanging space although there was a lack of drawer space. The shower in the bathroom was a joke - it was over the bath that also had a mixer tap and another hand-held shower head (so two shower heads), all of which poured water constantly and no way of controlling it so lots of wasted water. Toiletries are supplied and were okay.

We had most meals in the Orion restaurant (waiter service) as well as some in Sirens buffet and also the Lido buffet (which was very busy and not as nice as the other two venues). The food was plentiful and good.

Entertainment was varied and very good, both in the bars and the theatre.

There is a library for loaning and exchanging books as well as computers for use at a fee.

There is a lack of sunbeds on sea days but we did not experience any real problem as many passengers prefer to sit in some shade on very hot days. The Sirens pool had a sliding roof. There are two jacuzzi pools as well.

All crew were very friendly and helpful.

In general, we feel that the Dream could be likened to a 3* hotel.
