Dream Roman Epic

Sail Date: June 2012
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Embarkation: Other
Good start flew at 6am from Cardiff, flight on time and we were on the coach by 9.30am. 30 minutes later we were walking onto the ship. We were shown straight to our cabin on deck 9 large outside plus plenty of storage space and very clean the only possible downside to this cabin it was over the Ocean bar and if you were in bed before 1 a.m. it could be very noisy so we didn't go to bed until they had finished, well we did have the drinks package.

Overall the condition of the ship was good public areas were clean didn't see any threadbare carpets.
We saw some great shows a very good bunch of talented singers and dancers.

Keith the pianist was also very good.another good spot was the Ocean bar.

The ports of call some of which must have been a cheap option for Thomson both Trapani and Palamos were very insignificant but Calvi was superb.

The main restaurant the Orion served good but not great food as did the Lido a varied choice was available and we More always found something nice to eat in both restaurants.
The biggest disappointment on this cruise was the service in the outside bar areas and the Medusa lounge in particular especially compared with the happy staff on the Spirit last year.

In the Lido area there were some very sullen unhelpful waiters and on deck 10 you had to beg for a drink and unless you went to the bar yourself you could die of thirst. On the Gala night in the Medusa there would have been 20 or more people at the bar trying to get served.

Maybe Thomson have cut the number of staff?.

we enjoyed our cruise and we would go on the Dream again hopefully with better service more like the Spirit. Less

Cabin review: OU9025

Cabin 9025 Very nice cabin plenty of room great location except being above Ocean bar which could be noisy if you are early to bed, didn't bother us as we were not in bed much before 1 a.m.
