Going downhill

Review for a Caribbean - All Cruise on Marella Discovery

ENNYLynne
First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

We travelled with Marella same embarkcation in 2022. Rebooted on the positive journey last year. The ships hygiene is poor. They don't wipe down tables after use in the Island restaurant (indoor or out) when we spoke to someone they tried to justify the lack of care due to a Customs Inspection on the day. However, whilst they removed dishes quickly, they didn't wipe at all, the entire 7 days ...

Review for a Caribbean - All Cruise on Marella Voyager

As I have cruised with marella before I must say it was our 1st time on Voyager. Where do I Start. From boarding at Barbados we were made welcome, our cabin on deck 4 was beautifully clean and equipped with everything we needed especially storage, great size shower and toilet area and comfortable beds . Then the dining areas, we were spoiled for choice, the food was perfection with so ...

The entertainment was generally quite good but there was a few ...

Exceptional value for money.

Review for a Caribbean - All Cruise on Marella Discovery

Sian76
2-5 Cruises • Age 40s

The balcony cabin and bathroom was lovely, and maintained to a lovely standard. The staff are fantastic, with special acknowledgement to Leandro (Atrium Bar), Ni (Sushi restaurant) and Rodrigo (Bar 11), who were exceptional. The drinks package was well worth the additional £90, with quality premium drinks available. The main downfall was the food, it was difficult to book into the ...

Voyager is really a 7 day ship

Review for a Caribbean - All Cruise on Marella Voyager

Mikeredroom
First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

I thought I would take this opportunity to write a review of our 2 week (7 day back to back ) Caribbean Island Cruise on the Marella Voyager. 21st Jan to 4th Feb 2024. We booked it for my 60th birthday which fell mid holiday. Having only been on one cruise previously ( 10 days Mediterranean on Celebrity ) we stiil feel we are relative novices at this type of holiday. Before I start to make my ...

We had an amazing 2 weeks on this ship. i will say that the buffett was lovely but it was the same every day. We ended up in the restaurants for a change. We had a balcony cabin and it was lovely. the house keeping we just could not fault. in twice a day fresh coffee and tea. If you put your towels on the bsthroom floor you get fresh ones. you get beach towels too. If You get ...

Good in parts

Review for a Caribbean - All Cruise on Marella Voyager

Gazza457
10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We have sailed with Marella, Thomson, Tui for somewhere between 15 to 20 cruises. We have loved sailing with them, but this last cruise has left us questioning whether we should try other cruise providers. The ship is something of a mixed bag. Crew as always with one exception were excellent. The entertainment was good, I thought it was better than many of our recent cruises with them. The ...

Butlins-on-sea

Review for a Caribbean - All Cruise on Marella Discovery

Jon1980
2-5 Cruises • Age 40s

Memorable cruise but unfortunately memorable for all the wrong reasons, if you’re looking for a cruise with good food, luxury accommodation, excellent service, then do not book this. Butlins has more quality than this cruise. Food was typical British like Bacon, eggs and baked beans for breakfast. Buffet at dinner had a lot of choice but wasn’t the best quality, cold food and over cooked. If ...

Marella - First Time Cruising

Review for a Caribbean - All Cruise on Marella Discovery

Megan Maynard
First Time Cruiser • Age 20s

We have always booked with TUI, and as my uncles 50th birthday was approaching last year we decided to book a cruise around the Caribbean! My aunt and uncle unfortunately had to cancel due to health reasons but myself, mum and dad still went. Our flight out was on the 28th December 2023 and we flew home from Barbados (one of the negative factors, nothing on TUI or Marella though) on the 11th ...

The good, the bad and an airport that can't cope

Review for a Caribbean - All Cruise on Marella Discovery

Heathway
6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

This was our first cruise with Marella and we were full of expectation for Christmas in the Caribbean. Our first problem was at Gatwick airport where the push back machine broke and it took 2 hours to dismantle and check all the wheels before we could fly off, granted this wasn't a problem caused by Tui. On arrival at Bridgetown airport we sat on the plan for a further 1 1/2 hours whilst they ...
