Ship Facts: Thomson Dream Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Thomson Dream Deck Plans
Not a Dream but no nightmare either
Having read some of the reviews about the dream i was a bit nervous of what to expect.

The ship is dated and i couldn't see any indication of a refit, the carpets are worn and the chairs have seen better days, and yes there was a funny smell on deck four, however it was clean, and the staff could be seen cleaning all the time.

Main complaint is that the main sit down dining is on deck four (go to Alexis's side its not smelly)and you end up meeting in deck 8 and having to go up and down.

Only one lift was working so did get fit up and down the stairs to dinner every night. The food wasn't as good as previous cruise, but it was still ok however nothing rave about.

The cabin was freezing, air con on overdrive and couldnot turn it down.

The staff are excellent, really friendly and made the cruise.

Overall, i feel a bit let down by Thomsons... they sold it as their new ship, but its tired and old and does need new carpets, chairs and linen, however clean they are trying to keep it,it just looks old and not worth the money we spent.

Also if you're going AI a few drinks now have supplements, especially the popular cocktails and cranberry juice.
