Embarkation was an extremely long drawn out operation, as when we arrived at the port, there was a huge queue while we waited to be signed in. On the Dream, we simply walked on board and were signed in within minutes. The size of the ... Read more

This was our 6th cruise on the Dream and the 3rd Transatlantic so we knew exactly what to expect. The ship is showing signs of her age (30) and the lifts are worse than I remember. However, none of this detracted from what was ... Read more

Having been on a number of Thomsons cruise in the past (with no problems) we decided to try the Enchanting Vistas repositioning cruise on the Dream. Wish we hadn't bothered now. The only good thing about that ship was disembarkation! ... Read more
