Thomson Dream - Latin Gems - Jan 2012

Sail Date: January 2012
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Barbados
After reading some of the reviews on here we were a little sure what we had signed ourselves up for but I have to say we had the best week ever!!

Ok, the ship is nowhere near as grand as one of the large liners but at the end of the day its a Thomson holiday and after all you get what you paid for!

There was plenty to do and the ship was large enough for you to find your own space and sit and gaze out to the beautiful sea.

We would definetely recommend purchasing the all inclusive option, in fact you would be mad not to as it is certainly worth the extra money.

The staff are amazing and will go out of the their way to make sure you have an amazing time. The food and drink selection are second to none and the rooms are great, with a queen size bed and air con and they are kept immaculately clean by the house keeping staff.

The only negative we could find would be the entertainment. We found that it was geared to the older generations and whilst More this is not necessarily a bad thing, for us it just didn't live up to our expectations. The onboard entertainment team were ok, nothing amazing but certainly not dreadful. Like I said earlier you get what you pay for.

All in all we had an amazing time and we will certainly be booking again for next year, however next time we will be looking at a cruise and stay as one week just isnt enough in the Caribbean. Less
