THOMSON DREAM is NOT a NIGHTMARE

Sail Date: January 2011
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Other

We actually embarked in HAVANA but it was not listed.We were in an outside cabin DECK 7 on a ALL INCLUSIVE PACKAGE.The ship is aging but is very comfortable and clean with modern areas.The staff keep the whole ship polished and clean.Our cabin was quite large with a very comfy bed.Both the digital safe and the flat screen TV are FREE.There is also a mini fridge (contents not free). The bathroom is quite large with a hairdryer and razor point.We did sometimes get a SMELL in the bathroom which i would describe as foist rather than sewage.This did not transfer into the cabin and DID NOT spoil our holiday.There was sometimes a slight odour in some of the stairwells, nothing serious.There are areas evident of the earlier problems(patched carpets in a couple of corridors)The public loos look to have been modernised.

FOOD was excellent in all dining rooms with 24 hour eating on deck 9.

ENTERTAINMENT was excellent with some stunning broadway style shows.

STAFF were More always happy,polite and friendly.

ALL INCLUSIVE includes ON DRAUGHT LAGER,JOHN SMITHS SMOOTH and STRONGBOW CIDER.There were also various COCKTAILS and SPIRITS SOFT DRINKS various TEAS and COFFEES.

COLUMBIA has been taken off the itinery and replaced with MARGARITA.

This was our second cruise the first was on OCEAN VILLAGE (caribbean)THE DREAM compares well with the OV somethings better somethings not quite as good.

All in all we had a great holiday and would not hesitate to go back on THE DREAM (tomorrow).Anyone yet to board DO NOT worry just go and enjoy your holiday. Less

Large and comfortable,smelly bathroom at times (foist) lots of vibration only when docking otherwise fine.

A fantastic island and well worth a trip around.

The drive from the airport is not very scenic lots of slums and dereliction. It was cold and miserable weather so we did not venture of the ship.The next morning when we sailed out to sea the sun was shining and we saw a different view of havana.We wished we had taken a look round.The old cars are fantastic.
