Thomson Dream Highlights of the Mediterranean and Treasures of the Med
Embarkation: Palma de Mallorca
The crew seemed not be as happy on the Thomson Dream as they were on the Thomson Spirit which may have been due to the fact they were tired and they were More worried about their contracts being renewed. It was interesting to learn that the bar staff and the food waiters were working eleven hour days every day without any time off until the ship goes into dry dock for three months.
Finally the other thing which did concern us was there was some cases of the Noro Virus being reported on the ship during the cruise which meant there were restrictions put in place like serving yourself for the food and drink along with using the Jacuzzis.
All in all for what we had paid for this cruise did not seem good value for money and doing another cruise on the Thomson Dream is something we would not want to do Less
The cabin was excellent and it was enjoyable to relax on the balcony. There was adequate space and it was comfortable. The facility to watch DVD's in the cabin was good as well. The cabin service was good and the location of the cabin on a higher deck at the front of the ship meant it was quiet. However, the premier service being offered for the first week was not offered on the second week of our cruise.
