My Wife booked this cruise for my 60th. I have cruised before but she hasn't. Based on that I told her to keep within safe waters like the Eastern Med. Wow... we enjoyed this trip so much. Firstly, I must add we always read reviews and ... Read more

This was our first cruise and we know a number of people who have been on Thomson cruises and loved them. We were not disappointed. The ship was lovely and everywhere was spotless. The Captain (Richard) was the loveliest person and gave us ... Read more

We've cruised six times with Royal Caribbean and once with Holland America, so we had some reservations about choosing Tui (Thomson Cruises). In fact, we had sailed twice on the Tui Discovery when it was the Splendour of the Seas. We ... Read more

Cannot rate this cruise highly enough. This was our first cruise and we didn't want a formal affair. We travelled as two families with teenage children. The flights and transfers to the ship were seemless. Once on the ship, the staff ... Read more

Been with Thomson before but never to the fjords so decided to try this one. The fjords was excellent even though the weather wasn't the best, however the ship didn't impress us. We were constantly told the ship was on level 3 hygiene as ... Read more

We choose this cruise solely because of the itinerary. We didn't want to have to use ship excursions to enjoy ourselves and this really did fit the bill. We were able to do our own thing at every port and enjoyed ourselves doing so - it ... Read more

We chose this particular cruise for its destinations as our son lives in Malta and we hadnt visited any of the other ports before. After a perfect flight and transfer we arrived at the ship around 10am expecting the usual delays in ... Read more

We booked this cruise as the itinerary appealed to us. We did enjoy the ports we called at although there was very little to see and do in Corsica. The ship is very old and in poor condition and it is no surprise that Thomsons are ... Read more

We have just returned from 2 weeks on the Thomson Dream. It isn't the most modern ship in the world but it is very friendly and kept spotlessly clean. The entertainment is marvellous....so much to choose from. There are 2 pools on board ... Read more

We went on the cruise to celebrate my sisters 60th birthday. She booked the cruise for the destinations and the fact that it was all inclusive helped. We booked into Manchester Airport the night before and paid for the fast track so ... Read more

OK the ship is not brand new but you know that when you book, however it is excellently maintained, spotlessly clean. The staff could not be more helpful and polite especially the ones who keep the cabins in tip top order. The whole ... Read more

My mother in law, a wheel chair user chose this trip as we have travelled on the Spirit before and the cruise had some distinct advantages. The ship is generally wheel chair friendly, the wheel chair user cabins are spacious and are at ... Read more
