Sail Date: Dec 2019
Cabin:

We joined the Dream 4/1219 in Limassol. The itenarary originally included 2 stops in Egypt, but these were switched to Rhodes and Kusadasi instead. We were a bit disappointed but both the replacement ports were great, so no worries there. TUI had also credited our onboard accounts with 100 pounds each, so that was very welcome compensation. We had a great time every day on the Dream, everyone on the crew were as happy, hardworking and helpful as always. The Medusa lounge team were great fun. David, Charlotte and Kerry ran the quizes, games and those were always good fun. The resident band in Medusa are called Luna, and they were very good. Philip the Jamaican waiter in the medusa has to be the best dancer on the ship. Amazing dance moves, plus a great guy too. He brought a big smile to everyone onboard with his sense of humour and warmth, what a guy.. Beep beep, Spread the love :-) If anyone from TUI reads this review, please reward Philip for the laughs he brings to passengers in the medusa, and also on deck 11 during daytime. We go back onto the Dream for another cruise in March, and can't wait.

Cabin Review

A reasonably well sized cabin with adequate wardrobe space for 2 people. Our cabin was well kept by Artha our cabin steward, we'd go back to that cabin again.

Port Reviews

Haifa (Tel Aviv)

Had done this excursion previously and enjoyed it then, but it's not as good as it was. The smell of rotten fish and rubbish in the old town was very unpleasant

Limassol

Boarded only so didn't see much of the town

Cabin 7075 was fine and well kept by our very good cabin steward.

*The excursion that Ive mentioned while we were docked in Haifa, was a half day trip to Acre.
