Xmas 2010: Thomson Dream Cruise Review by Miller
Overall Member Rating
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Stained bedlinen, grey towels, dreadful pool towels, no air con., uncomfortable beds / malfunctioning electrics, / sewage smells (and we were on deck 9), stabilisers not working, (I`ve been on ships in North Sea gales and never More felt the swells experienced on `The Dream` in the Caribbbean) entertainment staff constantly telling us how wonderful they were - any one who thinks the entertainment was West End standard has a) not been to the West End b) does not go to the theatre regularly. We have previously cruised with Thomson and have only ever praised standards and staff. The only positive thing to comment on about this cruise, `the exotic caribbean` was the itinerary. Others have mentioned sewage odours!, listing, boiler / sewage malfunctions / engine fires / roped off areas with damaged sunbeds. We found the `Destinations Desk` useless- every enquiry was answered by `we haven`t been here before` - so it was a case of get off the ship/coffin and find out yourself. We have previously cruised with Thomson and never found fault but this was dreadfull.
Thomson should not have taken this crate across the Atlantic after engine failure, they should have given passengers boarding in Barbados the option of joining the cruise, BUT they should not have continued sailing a ship that was no fully functioning - nor should they continue to advertise that they make holidays tailored just for you - our Caribbean cruise certainly was not `just what we expected or wanted.` Less
Cabin review: 9037
9037 - wheelchair accessible - yes it is BUT decor is dingy and dated - not a nice environment.
Beautiful ship and friendly st...
Small and needs updating
Cruise nightmare -
