Just a quick review.. The ship may be small but she has bags of character and so much prettier than the larger ships that really do resemble a block of flats! Facilities may not be of the same standard either but what we did have were ... Read more

Thomson Dreamliner is a fantastic plane. Lots of leg room and free food and drink during the flight. But, what started well, ended badly. The Jamaican airport was hot, humid, crowded and queued. No where to sit, no air conditioning, no ... Read more

This holiday is based on deception by the tour operator. If you want to be realistic about expectations this cruise should be judged on a one star basis. When we embarked at Montego Bay there seemed to be a problem the week before with a ... Read more

When we booked this Transatlantic cruise with friends! I was a little concerned how I would cope with being at sea for a long time, not being the best sailor in the world, and the Dream not being the biggest ship in the world. I needn't ... Read more
