Ship Facts: Discovery Review (by Cruise Critic!)
MV Discovery

Cabins small so if going on long cruise pack accordingly. Overview: The ship is spotlessly clean and all crew members including below deck , up to the the captain are gracious and any problem is handled immediately and with a smile. Also, on our cruise a board member of the cruise company was on board and was always on top of everything going on. Passengers were very impressed with the concern shown.

Dining: Food is not gourmet but is very good. You can always find a menu item you will enjoy and if you don't like your choice, your waiter will replace it happily. Do pay attention to the dress code sent prior to sailing as the ship does follow it and passengers do dress for the formal night. This is an older ship (formerly the Princess original Love Boat so do not expect the modern amenities. The toilet does play a tuba song when flushed in your cabin (at least it did in ours. The small group of entertainers did a super job (very talented group) and additional acts were brought aboard every week. Conclusion: Have been cruising since the 1970's - including two world cruises, and many short and long cruises - only thing missing on this ship are balconies - This is the first ship that the Captain thanked us for cruising with them. Would cruise again on this ship in a heartbeat - Loved it ....

Community Manager's Note: 'This review was written when the ship sailed for Voyages of Discovery. As of February 2013, it is now sailing under the Cruises & Maritime banner"
