Dreaming of our next Thomson's Cruise!
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Embarkation: Las Palmas
If I had to complain about something it would be that the sunbeds need upgrading - a very minor complaint! We never had any problems getting a sunbed when we wanted one, although as usual on the day at sea the decks were very busy. The theatre shows and the lounges presented excellent entertainment and the food in the waiter-service Orion Restaurant was lst-class and served a wide choise of well-presented, appetizing food. We always ate dinner in the main dining room but used the self-service Sirens for breakfast and lunch if we were on board for lunch. Staff throughout the ship could not do enough for you.
Despite all of this, there were still some 'serial moaners' on board. Yes, there was the occasional toilet which did not flush in the public areas of the ship, but do people really think that on a ship which carries just over 1500 passengers, a toilet not flushing is a major disaster? Yes, there were melamine plates in the self-service restaurants, but I suspect this is a safety issue as many passengers took their food out to the pool areas.
This my 7th cruise with Thomson Cruises and I will continue to sail with them as, to my mind, they offer very good value for money. I have also sailed 3 times with much more expensive cruise lines. Yes, their ships are much more luxurious and much more modern - but they do have a price tag to match!!
To anyone about to sail on the Dream, I would say - go and enjoy yourselves and stop worrying about the unfavourable press which the ship has been receiving up until recently. I'm sure you will enjoy it just as much as we did. Less
