CruiseDeals’ Marketing Executive, Leanne Lovegrove, writes about her recent trip on the Thomson Dream
34 of us travelled from all over the UK to come together for a fabulous week on Thomson Dream. It gave a really good insight into the whole onboard experience that comes with a Thomson Cruise, from the food, cabins, service to the shore excursions.
From the moment we stepped onboard Thomson Dream we were made to feel so welcome, like part of the family. The ship manager, Craig, and his team of dedicated and attentive staff, were on hand whenever we needed anything and nothing was ever too much trouble.
After a quick dinner and a muster drill it was time to really get the trip started. After watching the first of many brilliant shows performed by the fantastic entertainment team, it was up to the top deck to dance the night away under the stars as we sailed onto our next destination.
The atmosphere was amazing and a brilliant way to start off our experience. From there it just kept getting better; each morning a new adventure in a new port including: Corsica, Rome, Livorno, Villefranche and Barcelona. The fantastic excursions we went on really bought these ports to life, a must if you’re a fan of western Europe! The excursions showcased just how much variety these destinations have to offer. We experienced the famous landmarks in Rome, the beauty of Florence, the leaning tower in Pisa, a trip to the film festival in Cannes plus much more.
And if you don’t want to get off of the ships there’s still plenty for you to do on board: a games room, library, spa, gym, 2 pools, restaurants, bars and a nightclub plus a host of featured entertainment each day.
The crew on board went above and beyond to ensure we all had a brilliant time. They were amazing, talented, funny, and provided such a personal service. They were the best crew I’ve ever come across on any cruise ship. It really bought home how much value you get on a cruise; amazing entertainment, great food and service, and a different destination every day (and you only need to pack once!)
All in all it was an amazing trip, highly recommend!
