Like many we flew out from East Midlands Airport with apprehension due to the mixed reviews received of the Thomson Dream - how wrong we were.
1st class entertainment every night (Steven Guy and his team deserve all the plaudits. Dancing & Singing in the Broadway Theatre, and late night deck parties which our teenagers thoroughly enjoyed.
Food was also excellent, particularly in the Orion where we had a great waiter each night called Kreuger. He often offered 2 helpings per course or extra ice cream etc. Similarly, our housekeeper Mary couldn't be faulted. The mainly Filipino crew were generally very courteous & friendly.
The ship itself still needs some work doing on it - listing on the Atlantic coast of Cuba (where time was lost and caused Dominican Republic to be missed) and engine failure a little later when it looked like we may miss Tortola too but this time was recovered.
Otherwise, the cabin was fine & spacious, everywhere was very clean and only picked up a sulphur-like smell on 1 evening.
Would definitely try another cruise, maybe this time in the Med. The dream has an excellent team which I hope it manages to keep together.
