Ship Facts: Thomson Dream Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Thomson Dream Deck Plans
Thomson Dream - Not a nightmare
We joined the cruise in Montego Bay on 30 December 2010 to be greeted by passengers moaning like mad about the ship. Well if they had problems over Christmas that's hard luck but reading the reviews, they are exaggerated. From 30 December onwards the cruise was superb - and let's not over-hype the 'engine fire'!! People running about with life jackets on and crying - don't believe it. The crew were quite rightly, as per seagoing-training, at their stations in life jackets. At no time were passengers instructed to put on life jackets or report to stations. If they did so, they did it off their own bat.

I didn't even get out of bed and although my wife was a bit concerned, I think she was reassured by own calm demeanour. Frankly, the Captain's last remark about 'Rest in Peace' was seen a bit of a laugh by most people.

The cruise itself was excellent. Ports of call 1st class, food superb, entertainment as good as the West End, staff brilliant, bar prices not unreasonable - what more could you want.

Perhaps the passengers who did nothing but moan (one even accosted the Captain when at his dinner table with his daughter who was on honeymoon to complain that she couldn't sleep because a lamp was rattling in her cabin. Another asked the Photography staff to bring the Captain from the bridge to complain about the quoted price of photos!!!) should take a look at themselves and remember when they put their towels on the sunbeds at the crack of dawn and left the beds unoccupied for hours on end; and also when so many entered the dining rooms without using the hand cleaning gel.

I would only express agreement with one thing - the ship does have a permanent list to starboard but is generally quite stable.
