Best Holiday ever

Sail Date: February 2014
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Barbados
First off all the flight was fantastic, the Dream liner was comfortable & roomy food was ok as airline food goes. The transfer from the airport was well organised & trouble free. The embarkation processes was fast & simple we were soon on the ship.

The ship its self is not modern by any means but that’s its joy ! its a lovely ship with wooden decks plenty room to walk about, there are plenty of bars to get a drink & the staff are a joy to be around. The food is good something for everyone & any problems are soon dealt with by the helpful staff.

The ship has a kind of nostalgia and when you are docked next the larger ships its almost a pleasure to be on the dream its informal & friendly. The rooms are fine comfortable & clean, the cleanliness around the ship is fantastic never seen so many cleaners.

The entertainment is fantastic.

Bad bits ! The drinks are awful cocktails in particular disgusting and expensive, stick More to Gin & tonic ect or Larger / Bitter make sure your drink is not flat if it is send it back. The drinks packages are expensive & a waste of money unless you are going to drink 15 pints a day don’t do it.

The Thomson excursions are over priced do not be frightened of using te local taxis they are friendly , cheap & will not charge you till the return journey & they always pick you back up on time.

Other than that a perfect holiday we shall always remember with great fondness. Less
