Thomson Dream was originally built in 1986 at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany as Homeric for Home Lines. In 1988 she was sold to Holland America Line and renamed Westerdam. In 1990 the ship was lengthened at the same shipyard in Papenburg, Germany. In 2002 the vessel was transferred to the Costa Cruises fleet and renamed Costa Europe. In April 2010 she left the Costa Cruises fleet on a ten year charter to join the Thomson Cruises fleet under her new name of Thomson Dream.
Thomson Dream has an overall length of 243 metres, a beam of 32 metres and a gross tonnage of some 55,000 tonnes. She has 753 passenger cabins with the capacity to carry 1506 passengers with some 600 crew to meet their needs.
