  3. Marella Dream

Left cold Cardiff to fly to Palma to pick up the Thomson Dream cruise ship. A slight delay, but this didn't put us off. Quick embarkation at port, on ship by 11.45am .Felt like coming home,same cabin on deck 10 that we have had twice before. Once again all the staff were very welcoming, quite a few remembering us from the previous years, especially Wendall, Dana, Ruby and Cecile bar staff. A new cruise director Bram and entertainment team this year, still excellent, shows in Broadway theatre of west end standard. The duo Heart and Soul in the Ocean bar were very good, and a welcome return to Strum Jam, who have a very large repetoire. Weather the whole week was great, calm seas every day. Entertained 24/7, never bored.

All ports of call were fab, favourites were Sorrento, Calvi and Barcelona. Would recommend the Thomson Dream to anyone that likes, entertainment whenever you want, west end shows every night, food 24/7 if that is what you like, and last but not least the amazing crew, they make your holiday special. Drinks package was very good value for money, as we booked early we paid £69.00 each, worked out our bill would have been over £200.00 each, and we are not big drinkers.

Non norovirus either, all we spoke to had a fab week.
