Dream first time...won't be the last!
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Booked this Thomson Cruise on the Dream with some serious reservations and my 15 year old daughter was even less sure. A week later and we are all converts! She loved it and wife and me had a great time too.
The Dream is a fine slightly older but well designed & maintained ship. Lovely blonde wood decks and cabins are spacious. Whole ship is spotless and crew cannot be faulted in any regard. Hard working and constantly, unwaveringly friendly, a credit to Thomson and Captain Roy!
Cruising route was perfect with only one whole day at sea. Could not believe how lucky we were with the weather...27 degrees every day and 12 hours of sunshine. Hard to think the UK and the Caribbean share the same planet. Sea temps at around 27 degrees too so lots of sea swimming is mandatory.
Meals were great and the Orion restaurant was a lovely place to eat with great service from all specially star waiter Tawanto. House red at &12 per bottle and other drinks around same as UK More prices.
Thanks to all the lovely folks we met on board and to Thomson for making our first cruise a great one.

Cabin review: OU7151
Spacious and quiet cabin with lots of good quality light fittings. Comfy beds. Enough hanging and locker space. Easy to operate safe in cabin. Best of all a powerful hot shower to wash that sea salt off. Worth upgrading to outside plus for the window and flat screen TV. (In truth we never watched it...too much going on!)
