Yay...Found the cabin number... Reading through my comments below it sounds a really bad review but with new mattresses it would have been an excellent cabin.

 

Cabin Number: 6515

Cabin Category: 5/6 Inside … Forward…Port side

Cruise Ship: Island Escape

Date of Cruise: 25 Sep 2012

Bed Formation: Twin bed that was converted into a double, plus two unused bunks.

Bath/Shower: Shower only

Adjoining Cabin: No

Balcony: No

Comment on the Size of the Cabin: Small...The bed is against a side wall when made up as a double so only one path down side of bed with space further restricted by folded bunk beds on each side.

Comment on any Noise Issues: Very quiet cabin.

Comment on Storage Space: Good for two people.

Comment on the Bathroom: Basin tap handle fell off on arrival, but quickly fixed … Shower walls & tray had been re-lined with plastic, although old corroded fittings were still there, & tray was a bit grubby… Looked like ground in boot marks from the fitter.

Any Other Comments: About the oldest & most uncomfortable mattresses we have found on any cruise ship… Dated TV with dodgy handset, mislabelled lamp switch on the headboard turned off power to TV.

Would You Recommend this Cabin: Yes

Bath/Shower?: Shower

Adjoining Cabin?: No

Balcony?: No

Comment on the Size of the Cabin: Standard size so pretty small, but fine for one person

Comment on any Noise Issues: Super quiet - genuinely couldn't tell if we were docking, docked or sailing. Occasional noise from corridor but only if sitting on the bed on that wall

Comment on Storage Space: Plenty! 3 wardrobes to match the 3 beds, plus a small chest of drawers

Comment on the Bathroom: Clean, good shower, had one problem with the toilet flush but that was resolved on the same day

Any Other Comments?: Excellent position midships, and as it was on deck 6 I barely used the lifts as I could walk to all the other decks - helps work the meals off!

Hi Campolady, We are in 7003 in 3 weeks time. I'm glad you said it was quiet in that area as we have never been that far forward before :eek: No noise from anchors or bow thrusters in the early morning then? :D Hope we have drawers in ours, as none in 7039 :rolleyes:

Very quiet Linda.

 

Hubby has serious health issues and has to sleep for a few hours every afternoon and goes to bed early at night - he was never disturbed by any noise at all and we certainly never heard any anchor noise etc. Had we not been on a budget this year we would have definitely booked the same cabin again - sadly this year finances have relegated us to a lower deck.

 

Have a great holiday - wish we were going in 3 weeks time but have to wait until the end of October (I do B+B so Summer breaks are out of the question for us). Looking forward to hearing how you get on.

DH has just retired so plenty of choice of when to go but sadly less money :rolleyes:

sailing date: 26/3/2013

ship: Island Escape

cabin number: 9516..port side very forward,,couldn't be much more forward!

Comments about cabin: Very juddery all night long, terrible whilst at sea. Quiet but very bad vibrations, beds shook and the vibrations actually physically moved us as well.

Beds: 2 pushed together gives more room but it is up against the wall in this formation. Ok for 2 people, plenty of storage space.

Cabin facilities: Hairdryer worked very well, I didn't even get mine out the case. Lights were very strange, took ages to come on when you pressed the switches. Shower hot and powerful.

Would I reccommend it?: NO. If it's choppy (or worse) you will feel every slight movement. It's also on the lifeboat deck so there's people walking past your window or standing outside smoking.

Cabin Number:872 (Inside)

Cruise Ship:Celebration

Date of Cruise:1/7/12

Bed Formation: 4 Bed (2 x bunk)

Bath/Shower?: Shower

Adjoining Cabin?: No

Balcony?: No

Comment on the Size of the Cabin: Perfectly acceptable so long as kids didnt leave clothes lying about!

Comment on any Noise Issues: General I suppose - people coming back to cabin at night, although we could hear at times what sounded like trolleys or something being hauled along below us.

Comment on Storage Space: Whilst plenty of storage, could be doing with some hangers/hooks for towels etc being 4 in a cabin

Comment on the Bathroom: It was okay - shower needed a bit of attention - not dirty, just needing regrouted and a general tidy up. Shower curtain was such a nuisance sticking to you! Also, we generally had to use towels to mop up water that appeared to be leaking from shower.

Any Other Comments?: With their being four of us in this cabin, it did get extremely warm. We did complain about the lack of power from the air conditioning a couple of times, which was apparently rectified, but we noticed no difference. Other than that, when there are four people in a reasonably confined space, you have to expect that you might not have as much space as say in a hotel room.

Hope this is helpful. We are travelling again this year and have paid to have a cabin on 3/4, again inside.

Just thought I would bump this up again as I think this is a great thread and a lot of work gone into it. It's a pity it still has not had the recognition it deserves. Go on Cruise Crutic give it a sticky status.

Date of Cruise: 3/4/13 to 10/4/13

Bed Formation: 2 singles - L shaped

Bath/Shower?: Shower

Adjoining Cabin?: No

Balcony?: No

Comment on the Size of the Cabin: Quite good, we certainly didnt feel cramped.

Comment on any Noise Issues: No real noise issues, could feel a little bit of vibration when in port.

Comment on Storage Space: Very good, more than we needed. 2 large wardrobes with plenty of hangers, one wide chest of drawers, one average chest of drawers, one bedside cabinet with 2 draws. Plenty of room under beds to stow suitcases.

Comment on the Bathroom: Ok, could do with refurb, same control for power and temperature. some of the small mosaic tiles came loose and had to be replaced, but done quickly and they stayed put!

Any Other Comments?: as cabin was much nearer front of ship than middle, we did feel the swell on the two days that was an issue.

Hi Colin

 

How did it compare to Mariner of the Seas?

 

Hi Linda,

 

Mariner is much more glitzy, a far more modern boat, our cabin on there was an inside, double bed, and clean and modern. Didn't have any issues with movement unlike on Spirit, but then again last August the Med was very smooth. Enjoyed Spirit as much, fellow cruisers much more friendly, just the Mariner was more 5 star in facilities, cruisers in general less friendly (lots of Italians!!).

 

Colin.

Just how we felt about the Celebrity Eclipse last year - beautiful ship, but not the atmosphere of Thomson ships :)

Thanks Linda, and apologies for not updating this recently. With summer 2014 itineraries and also being rather busy the past couple of weeks I've not had time to do it, but will make sure that I do sometime this week. :)

Another Thomson Dream cabin for your collection & hopefully a link to some pics.... Keep up the good work.

 

Cabin Number: 6082 Outside Plus

Cruise Ship: Thomson Dream

Date of Cruise: 26th April 2013

Bed Formation: Double bed but could be converted into a twin.

Bath/Shower?: Bath with Shower above

Adjoining Cabin?: No

Balcony?: No

Comment on the Size of the Cabin: Spacious cabin, good length with plenty of room around the sides of the bed.

Comment on any Noise Issues: Quiet.

Comment on Storage Space: Double door wardrobe, open half hanging rail, 3 large drawers, 3 smaller + 2 tiny bedside draws.

Comment on the Bathroom: Chipped sink, stained bath, but all serviceable & clean. Loo angled towards bath so no space for knees forcing a side-saddle approach. Shower controls tricky to master but temperature stable. Minor flooding from drain under sink.

Any Other Comments?: Air con broke down 3 times but repaired promptly each time…, Room safe temperamental as to locking / unlocking… Headboard light switches could operate with an incautious move of the pillow.
