Ship Facts: Thomson Dream Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Thomson Dream Deck Plans
Dreaming of another Thomson Cruise...
We returned recently from our first Thomson cruise, the itinerary was Roman Epic, and we were not disappointed! Our last cruise was with Airtours 15 years ago so quite a while.

Leaving Edinburgh our plane was delayed almost an hour due to de-icing of the wings but eventually we took off into the sunshine. Pleasant flight, not too long to wait for luggage at Palma and we were directed to the coaches pretty quickly.

Embarkation was a little confusing at times, people handing us leaflets and trying to follow the crowd but eventually we were onboard and found our cabin without a problem. Pleasantly surprised by the size, although the lack of drawers, apart from the very small one in the bedside table, was a bit annoying, and the strange tall thin cupboard with no shelves and no hanging rail puzzled us!

Our cases arrived fairly quickly brought by a smiling steward who looked after us and our cabin so expertly the rest of the week. Nothing was too much trouble.

The beds were so comfortable and most nights I slept like a log, it was lovely to be rocked gently off to sleep. I did feel a bit of rocking and rolling a couple of nights due to the sea being a little rougher but travel sickness tablets sorted me out in no time.

We ate our meals onboard at the Lido or Sirens and could not fault a thing. The choice was plentiful and the food was delicious, so many choices, sometimes it was hard to stop!

The entertainment was fantastic, we went to a few shows and it was like being in a West End theatre. Loved the way the seating was arranged with little sofas and the two tiers was a wonderful concept. The other onboard entertainment was all first class too.

Every member of the crew was polite, friendly and so helpful. They worked tirelessy and helped to make our cruise so memorable.

We only took one organised trip to Pompeii, our guide was a lovely funny man called Marco, he made everything so interesting and was so informative. At the other ports we did our own thing, we loved Trapani, Calvi and Palamos and mostly the weather was fine, although from Wednesday it began to go downhill a little.

We were staying for a week in Majorca after the cruise and the transfer was pretty smooth, we left the cabin at 8am and sat on deck until our coach picked us up to take us to our resort. No problems there.

All in all it was a wonderful experience and certainly one we hope to repeat before too long. It will be nice to see the Dream when she's refurbished and looking spick and span! I look forward to another Dream Trip!
