Dream - Update

Sail Date: June 2010
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Embarkation: Other

Having read all the negative reviews about the ship we were very apprehensive about going, however, we thoroughly enjoyed our cruise and had no problems with our cabin. There were however, several passengers that experienced some problems with the toilets flooding in their cabins and subsequently the smells that permeated from them.

Overall we loved it and the staff are just amazing. If you are going my advice would be to eat in the Orion restaurant (waiter service) as they really look after you and the food is of a higher quality. It was fine dining with excellent choices. We thought the Andromeda self service restaurant was a poor man's cafe with a poor choice of cheap cold cuts bacon,sausage,black pudding that looked and tasted awful, the evening meals were much the same.

The ship itself is really in need of a refit and overlooking the fact that the bath and shower curtain should have been replaced also the old tv we still had a wonderful time visiting various ports More along the way. We listened to other passengers compare the ship to the other ships they have sailed on Thomson and they all said Celebration and Spirit were far better.

My advice would be if you are going, to experience your own holiday and judge for yourself and to reassure you that the ship has lots of engineers on board to address any problems you should experience I wish you all the best and hope you have an enjoyable holiday as we had. Less

Cabin review: Thomson Dream 6127

Cabin 6127 - is mid ship and very quiet, it is also close enough to the lifts and is in the middle of the ship.

Port and Shore Excursions


Barcelona is an amazing city to see with Guadi's Sargada Familla cathedral a sight to behold.


Has to visit this one as the French Connection was filmed here - there are lots of little craft stalls and freshly caught fish stalls to see.


Naples is a filthy place and best to stay on board when in this port as the traffic would kill you. They say see Naples and die, now I know why.

Lots of time on the first day to explore as the ship doesn't sail until 11.30pm Great local area to walk around and a short taxi ride into the main shopping are of Palma (8 euros ) each way.


Visited -Livorno - Pisa, not to be missed amazing


Absolutely beautiful, we visited a little island called Santa Maddalena -just stunning
