Thomson Dream Cruise Review by Mrs W Mond: It was a 'Dream not at Nightmare'
Overall Member Rating
It was a 'Dream not at Nightmare'
Destination: Western Caribbean
We booked this cruise because of the itinerary, myself to visit the Mayan ruins in Mexico and to visit Cuba for my husband. It was not until a colleague said 'Surely you have read all the bad reviews!' which we hadn't,and for every review that was negative there was a positive
We went with an open mind as we have a 24 hour rule anyway when we go long haul,as we always arrive at the destination tired, peckish and in need of a shower.
Well, the cabin was a good size, very clean, if only a kettle was provided it would have ticked all the boxes.
The staff were amazing, we have been on several cruises and they certainly were the best.
The entertainment was first class in the theatre, and the crew show was very entertaining. Well done.
We could always find something to our taste in the self service restaurants, not so keen on the restaurant on deck 4, we liked being served,but found the food in the self service restaurant better.
We were More very disappointed to miss out on the Dominican Republic due to we think leaving late from Havana ( still not sure) and to have an extra sea day but the entertainment staff were great. Not so happy about the ship breaking down for 4 hours but were kept informed at all times, these things happen.
We would definitely book a Thompson cruise if we liked the itinerary Less

Cabin review: OU5026
The bathroom is dated, if there is any money to be spent then update the bathrooms, but don't replace the shower it was amazing. W had some wooden drawers which were stuck, we should have reported it, but we worked around it, it was only minor,
