Thompson Dream - Western Med

Sail Date: July 2011
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Embarkation: Newcastle (England)
Have been on 9 Thomson cruises and this our 10th certainly the best. After worrying over bad press "Watchdog" etc. still dubious until we stepped aboard.

Our cabin was very spacious clean and kept immaculate. The crew and officers were the friendliest bunch we have ever met. The food was fantastic and served by a brilliant bunch of waiters in the Orion restaurant. We ate breakfast on deck 11 in Sirens restaurant and had some great banter with Alexis every morning with his "taxi" coffee station. Lunch was either on deck 9 or 11 or the Terrace Grill outside. From pizzas to hot dogs to beautiful salads and pasta or even a hot lunch, there was something there for all.

Evenings were spent either watching the brilliant show team or a drink or two in the Ocean bar. The staff in this bar are excellent and know from day one what your tipple is.

We would not hesitate to go back and in fact have just booked to go again in 2012. Less

Quite location. Big enough for three people. Good access to stairway C which then takes you one deck up to deck 8 where all bars shops reception and entertainment are.

Try and climb Vesuvius - the views are excellent. Pompeii is a must also. Cant comment on Naples did not go into the centre.
