First Cruise

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 passport control none existant totally laidback typically Jamaican. The ship seemed a bit tired on the outside but what a lovely surprise once on board quite the ...

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 reminiscent of a staff canteen/airport. Other Bars on board are more intimate. The Casino sports 8 slot machines and a home size casino table. There are 2 pools ...

Cruising was a first for my husband and I, we were on holiday to celebrate my parents birthdays and this was their choice. The travel itinerary was excellent and took in places such as Costa Rica, Panama and Cuba to name just a few of our destinations. We did many of the official tours which were good, especially The Panama City Tour and The Havana Highlights ones, these were very informative, ...

We chose this cruise for the itinerary. We have been cruising for the past 16 years and never had cause to complain to any of the companies we have used prior to sailing with Thompson's. When we boarded we were shocked by the bad odour and shabbiness of the ship. The furniture in the cabin was chipped and had seen better days. The bed extremely uncomfortable, pillows misshapen. We never had a ...

We chose this cruise because of the relaxed dress code.This was our first cruise. so evening dress was out of the question.We both like to dress up ,but on our terms .So it was nice to have the choice after a day excursion that we could just chill and have our evening meal in the self service restaurant,if we wanted to.anything went in there. Even shorts and T shirts was acceptable.The food in ...

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We have travelled on Thompson cruises many times and love the entertainment the food and service is always excellent and we find them good value. This time I needed my wheelchair for distances and rough seas. I found there were many problems to overcome at the airport due to the help desk being a distance from the airport entrance and the Thompson desk the furthest away. Birmingham airport is ...

This was a cruise anticipated to get our new year off to a great star but New Year's Eve on board was rather flat. There was the opportunity to celebrate two but nothing happened or was scheduled in the intinerary of events on the night to acknowledge Big Ben striking in the UK earlier than Caribbean time ...some cruises seize the opportunity to celebrate both...Midnight arrived on board and with ...

What a dissapointment. My husband and I have been on many cruises, with lots of different cruise lines. Expected this cruise to be high up on the list. Mr Thompson you set mediocre standards and fail to attain them. A glorified rust bucket, you even had to pay for the water on fully inclusive package ! The food served in the Orion Restaurant was bland and sometimes cold, the showers were ...

6 friends went on Dream as we loved the itinerary to Cuba! We thoroughly enjoyed the cruise we all went on the Dream last April and loved the improvements, crew were brilliant and always smiling, we loved the new subbed area and well done to Thomson crew for removing towels on longer than 45 mins, we never had a problem with beds, but we were always up later so by lunch time, loads of free ...

My wife and I did our first cruise. We wanted to see Mayan temples so the Mayan treasures itinery seemed ideal. We did not know what to expect. On the plus side; The cabin was more spacious than we expected and it was very well cleaned and maintained by our cabin steward. The food on board was excellent. I have a few food intolerances so the buffet restaurant (the Lido) was very good - plenty of ...
