Ship Facts: Thomson Dream Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Thomson Dream Deck Plans
Thomson Dream
Flight from East Midlands 27th August 2011. No problems whatsoever. Arrived in Palma Bank Holiday Saturday Midday. Joined a queue of several hundred to passport control. Crowded into a glass roofed tunnel with no air conditioning. Quite frightening. Checked on board with a minimum of delay and went to Cabin Outside Plus on Deck 7. The walls were dark wood which was fashionable at one time but not these days. The cabin was clean and comfortable but very cold. There are no individual teperature controls in the cabin and we asked at reception if the blast of cold air could be reduced. An engineer came twice but had little effect. We asked for two extra duvets and had plenty of hot drinks from our kettle. (2pin continental plug adaptor needed.) Apart from the first day when we ate at the selfservice buffet, we ate all our meals in the Orion Restaurant. The meals were very good and the portions were fine, but its easy to see why the pile it high scoffers favour the buffet.

The singers and dancers provided excellent entertainment although the narrative between the numbers was unbelievably amateurish.

The ship is not big compared to many that we saw but it is big enough so that you can find areas that appeal to most people. We did not do any of the trips from the boat but we went ashore in each port usually returning with a bottle of local wine which we drank on board. The library is excellent catering for all tastes. We thoroughly enjoyed the Dream and would go again.
