Embarked at Palma on 16.4.11 for a 2 week cruise on the Dream. We couldn't believe how hassle free the check in process was and before we knew it we were on board the ship. We had upgraded to the All Inclusive drinks package and how ... Read more

We flew into Palma with trepidation after all the reports we had read about the Dream, but on seeing her from the coach our first impressions were how well she looked. We sailed through the checking in procedures (No pun intended) and were ... Read more

This was a first time cruise for us. Travel to and from Palma, where we picked the ship up, was very good, as was the embarkation. We were happy to eat and go straight ashore so we went to the Andromeda Restaurant. This is where very poor ... Read more

It was with some apprehension that we boarded the Thomson Dream on 10th August as, if some reviews were to be believed, we were about to spend a week on a floating cesspit, stinking of raw sewage and ready to sink as soon as it took to ... Read more

Not rated Sailed July 2010
Myself and my wife booked a late deal on the Thomson Dream. We checked the cruise reviews online. Not always the best idea I know. In brief the reviews were awful, and perhaps slightly overboard, excuse the pun. We have cruised before ... Read more

Bearing in mind the severe criticism this ship had received from passengers on its first few cruises, we were extremely apprehensive about what was in store for us. Indeed we discussed our concerns with our local Thomson's travel agent and ... Read more
