“INSIDE CABIN FIRST CLASS CRUISE”
Review of Cruising

Cruising
Ranked #148 of 929 Nightlife in Madrid
Attraction details
Reviewed May 27, 2014

Just returned from a MED cruise on the THOMPSON DREAM. Not our first cruise but definitely would cruise with Thompson again. Although not the newest of ships it is surprisingly modern. ORIGINALLY a Costa ship circa 1985sh it has only been with Thompson since 2010. The cabin whilst not luxury had everything needed. The cabin staff are very helpful and pleasant to deal with. Sheets and towels changed daily and the cabin vacuumed. The service in all restaurants is good (being diabetic they were very aware of my own personal needs). The managers ensured that the holiday went without a hitch. With 2 swimming pools , one being adults only, Sport deck all needs are catered for. Only problem was at Corsica where you go ashore by tender. The water was rough and the boat was tossed about. The other problem was at the casino. Couldn't pick the right numbers on the roulette wheel so finished up having to pay for the entire holiday with our own finances. WOULD DEFINATELY GO AGAIN.

Should be called Thompson Nightmare cruise
The ship is old, we paid for a Grand Suite for a week £2500 pp
The balcony was a solid part of the ship to see out you had to stand up,
The bath had to have a towel pushed along the top to stop water running on the floor
The toilet over flowed and flooded the bathroom.
Food, poor quality, even when you paid for supposedly a la carte food poor

Fun ship no airs and graces involved here.
Average food but plenty of it at any time, sunbeds are a bit of a gamble.
Cabins were ok nothing special good shower but all cleaned frequently.
Chugs around the med parks neatly staff all very friendly apart from the miserable one in the lookout bar where the disco starts at 11:30.
Had one al a carte experience, was ok but not worth the extra money really, but ok for a change.
You get what you pay for don't expect too much and you will enjoy the experience.
