Live the Dream
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Our cabin was a nice double/twin with bath/shower. The pressure in the shower was actually better than our one at home! We had a nice picture window so we could see out. Being on deck 7, central we were quickly able to get to one of the staircases to get to other decks.
The food was good, we had no complaints.
We visited some lovely islands - some to return to, others not!
We did some tours with Thomson and some places we did our own thing. The More Cuba Experience is a waste of time and money (hard going if you are not fully able or have children!) - they take you to a Rum factory which is smack bang opposite where the ship is docked! Walk around Colonial Havana yourself it is safe and very interesting. If you want to see Revolution Square (not really very much to see!) get a taxi there.
Spending Christmas and New Year on a Caribbean Cruise was brilliant. Sitting in the jacuzzi on Christmas Day morning drinking Bucks Fizz and listening to all the Christmas songs like Slade and Wizzard was amazing! New Years Eve we partied until 2.30am and left it still in full swing on deck. An experience never to have missed.
If you are booked to go on the Dream DON'T cancel - it is worth going. The cabins are good, the Thomson atmosphere is definitely there. We really did enjoy it (even the half hour fire drill at almost midnight didn't put us off - despite ALL crew called to man the lifeboats - we were a haresbreath away from abandoning ship!). Less
Cabin review: OU7106
Quite large, with wood panelling. When the ship was sailing at high speed the panelling started vibrating! The picture window is quite dated - there was mouldy paint all around it. The beds were really comfy. We were mid ship and didn't get too much noise during docking.
