flying out to Mallorca took under 2 hours. The coach trip from the airport took 20 minutes. The Cruise staff were quick and efficient with boarding. The ship itself is beautifully refitted. The balcony cabin was worth the extra money. You ... Read more

Just back from a great cruise on the Thomson Dream on the Aegean Shores itinerary. Before I go any further, this ship is over 20 years old and if you want to find fault, then you will! You could probably say that of a ship just off the ... Read more

Ship - Tired and in need of a refresh but comfortable and spotlessly clean. Food - I ate for two weeks abroad and only found one thing that I didn't like. I am a fussy eater and loved it. Entertainment team - Good fun. Show team ... Read more

This was our first cruise - a bit of a learning curve! A big hiccup at the airport as one of our suitcases was lost and we were just left to our own devices to report it, which we did but we were delayed by over an hour. It was not until ... Read more
