  3. Marella Dream
We have just returned from our first cruise, the ship was Thomson Dream, we knew we had made the right choice with a Thomson cruise. We flew to Palma and the transfer was straight forward, on arriving at the ship we were very impressed with our cabin which was an outside plus. We went out on four days to different ports, 3 were of interest and worth the journey, but in Calvi we need not have taken the coach trip, and should have wandered around the lovely town. We ate in the Orion restaurant each evening and the food was wonderful with a great menu, but the staff made it for us. We ate at Tony's station and he looked after us so well, he and Chris were always there to greet us with a smile, and Dominic made sure out wine glasses were never empty, they could not be bettered. The entertainment was good and varied but the Dream Vibe were the best for us. Our cabin was kept spotless by Erna, who did a great job. Our daughter talked us into this cruise as she is a cruise fan, and would only travel with Thomson, so we are so pleased we let ourselves be talked round, as at first we didn't fancy a cruise at all. To sum up, we are already thinking which cruise to take next year, so this was our first but won't be our last.
