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

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

From The moment that you step on-board you move into a bygone age of service the staff work tirelessly to ensure that ever guest feels special. Where nothing that is too much trouble and the guests whims are catered for from getting a ... Read more

Having been on 2 previous Thomson cruises and thoroughly enjoyed both, we thought this cruise would have the same high quality and pleasant experience. HOW WRONG COULD WE BE?? The whole of the first week, all the passengers had to wear ... Read more

This was a last minute deal and we decided to go on this cruise as it went to several ports that we had not been to before. Having read the reviews on this web site before we went we were a bit worried about what we were letting ourselves ... 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

We were on the Seven Shores cruise with Thomson and I truly enjoyed our experience. We were in a small inside cabin with four people (2 adults and 2 children) but the layout and storage options never made me feel crammed. Our room was ... Read more

The food was good and always available and hot. The colourful coasts destinations: apart from Gran Canaria and Madeira, the ship was far to far away from the ports. I also think the excursions are very over priced, especially if there is a ... Read more
