This was our first cruise on this lovely old lady. What she may lack in glitz and glamour she more than makes up for with fabulous food, first class entertainment and a friendly welcoming atmosphere. The flight on the Dreamliner was ... Read more

Cuban fusion We chose this cruise because of the itinerary. I wasn't looking forward to it after reading all the negative reviews. Arriving in Jamaica was a hoot, ok filling imigration forms in a corridor is not ideal but ... Read more

Arriving at Montego Bay was by a beautiful low inflight over the water to land at the airport. The paperwork for transit via Jamaica to the ship took some time and the terminal was hot and sweaty - until the coaches showed up and started ... Read more

This was our 5th cruise with Thomson, second on the Dream, and was our best cruise overall. Embarkation was OK, taking about an hour from the airport to getting to the cabin. But at least we didn't have to collect and carry our cases from ... Read more

Yes - the ship is a little tired, but that is the only fault we could find. If you are looking for a formal cruise with Broadway'esque' entertainment then this isn't the one for you, but the staff, food and itinerary were second to ... Read more

We choose this cruise as a first cruise and the choice of Ports and Excursions. The Ship has some lovely vintage public areas ( Main bar and Dining Rooms) which had echoes of a more glamorous era. The alternative dining facility was ... Read more

We chose the cruise because we had never been to this part of the World. We are not avid Cruisers and have been a a few only. It is a good way to see parts of the World and helps make up one's mind if they are worth re-visiting. The ... Read more

I have just returned from a cruise to the Western Caribbean on this cruise ship - Cuban Fusion followed by Pride of Panama. I did not enjoy the cruise at all and feel as though I totally wasted my money. The Thomson Dream was very tired ... Read more

We chose this for it being all inclusive - drinks, flights, shuttle, and gratuities. We also loved that we could do a back to back cruise on the same ship. You didn't have to disembark and then go back on. The turn over day was just like ... Read more

We usually cruise with P & 0 or Royal Carribean. We chose this cruise because it called into Havana. The ship felt dated and needs some attention. The itinerary was changed round and port arrival times changed which meant prebooked ... Read more

There were 3 couples in our party. It was our first cruise on the Dream after 3 on Celebration. The flight from Gatwick on the 787 Dreamliner went well with a good entertainment system. A long queue at immigration took about half an hour, ... Read more
