  3. Marella Dream
We have just returned from a 2 week cruise on the Thomson Dream which meant a total of 10 ports of call . Although we had read mixed revierws we can honestly say that we had a great time on this ship.

The only disappointment was we did not get to visit Tunisia because of a technical problem with the ship which I have since discovered since coming back has been long term so cannot understand why Thomsons did not tell us we would not be calling there until a day or so before and that Cagliari would be the alternative.

Food was great especially breakfast in Sirens. We dined at the grill on a couple of occassions. Only critiscism is the food in Andromeda could be luke warm and bland but we worked or way round it by using the other options Have got to say the £59 celebrations package is a briliant deal. I treated hubby to one as it was his birthday while we were away.

The staff and crew were great in all departments. We loved the Captin's daily sea stories and what entertainment we saw was good. Staff talent night very good.

The only draw back was we got caught up in the air traffic controllers strike on the way back which added a couple of hours onto our journey
