Port/Street maps are available for every port you visit on the ship with points of interest etc...Well they were on the Dream unless they`ve cut back

That's useful to know Jim, where are these maps kept?

They had port of call maps available in September when we did Adriatic Explorer on Spirit. They are on the Destination Services desk and also on Reception. I think we have had them on all our Thomson Cruises.

We've always had maps....they used to deliver them to your cabin the night before but on our last cruise you had to pick them up from reception or DS.

We had maps delivered to our cabin on the first week of our cruise on the Dream in February, then we started to get maps which were sponsored by the shops at each port, which were not so good and we had to ask at reception for one of the port maps, then suddenly the port maps were delivered to our cabins again! The port maps are A4 and the shopping maps are A4 folded in half.

As others have posted maps available on board and they are quite informative - and adequate for most ports of call.

But for some city ports like Rome and Venice (relevant to you) I find the little popout maps really useful - with more detail and street names and they fold up so neatly to put in your pocket.

I got one from Amazon for Venice for less then £4.

Most ports too there are tourist information desks in the terminal where it's helpful to pick up local maps - again can be more detailed.

Enjoy your trip - great itinerary!

I was on the this wonderful cruise two years ago. They handed out this information at the 'Port Talk'. Well worth trying to go to these talks.
I loved the ports on this cruise. Sailing out of Venice was wonderful, but the views leaving Montenegro were breathtaking.
