Sail 3 seas, hot, hot ,hot
"The food in Latitude was good overall but some portions were rather small, one example being the bruschetta starter.The excursions were reasonably priced but two of the guides were not the best, one had very poor English and the other spoke too fast with low volume Our inside cabin 8157 was comfortable with a good shower and air con and plenty of storage space but did lack a fridge...."Read More

Brilliant tui cruise holiday

Review for a Caribbean - All Cruise on Marella Explorer 2

Mickmickey999
2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

From booking in our local tui store, this was an almost perfect holiday. Flights, transfers including the police escorts, room, room service, food & drink eat in market place for breakfast and lunch then eat in latitude restaurant most evenings, evening show in show lounge were all 100%. We didn't do many excursions but went a shore every time we could. The main reason for this trip was to visit ...

Review for a Europe - Eastern Mediterranean Cruise on Marella Explorer 2

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

This was our 9th cruise and our second time on Marella. We are not sure we would use them again unless certain aspects improve. Firstly the positives We flew to Dubrovnik with Tui and the flight and transfers were seamless for us. Having our cases collected from outside our cabin for the journey home and not seeing them again until we got to Gatwick was brilliant. We visited ports in ...

We have just been on the Three Seas Cruise. We were very worried as 4yrs ago we went on the Baltic cruise on Explorer and although the cruise was ok everything else Shows Music were awful and we said we would never cruise with then again. Mark you we have been cruising with them for 10years and the Dream was our favourite. Anyway this cruise was amazing not only the destinations but the Shows were ...

Disappointed

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

We have done three previous Tui Marella cruises, all to the Canary Islands, as we have birthdays in Feb/March and this is a nice spot after a Highland winter. This year, after several family deaths, we decided to treat ourselves to a summer cruise to the Med on Explorer 2. Unfortunately, this was probably a bad choice. We found the food as good, if not better than usual, also the staff were ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

This was our first cruise and certainly won’t be our last. I cannot fault a thing. The staff are fantastic. Cabin was great on deck 9 with balcony. Food was great. Entertainment was great. We upgraded to Premium All inclusive and was well worth it. The itinerary was fantastic, saw some great places. Currently sat looking at next years itinerary. There is something for everyone, quiet bars and ...

1st Cruise and definitely not the last

Review for a Europe - Eastern Mediterranean Cruise on Marella Explorer 2

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

Booked our 1st Cruise to coincide with our 25th wedding anniversary around the Adriatic. From our transfer to the Ship and our return was faultless.All staff from catering/entertainment/cabin attendants were exceptional. Port stops/trips were well organised. Stopped in a Junior Suite on the 10th floor which exceeded our expectations. There was plenty of places to eat and drink and the inclusive ...

Another Very Fun (and hot) Cruise!

Review for a Europe - Eastern Mediterranean Cruise on Marella Explorer 2

slclove
6-10 Cruises • Age 30s

Party: 2 adults from England, aged 29 and 64, previously cruised twice with Marella (Dream and Explorer 2), with NCL 4 times (Jade, Breakaway and Prima), and 3 other cruises in the early 00s on now defunct lines. We don't have any disabilities and we didn't use the casino, so we can't comment on these aspects, and this was an adults only ship. The sailing is listed as 'Sail Three Seas', but we ...

First Marella Cruise

Review for a Europe - Eastern Mediterranean Cruise on Marella Explorer 2

Bristol Pirates
10+ Cruises • Age 70s

Chose this cruise for the destination and the adults only. We added the premium drinks package which was well worth it because besides premium spirits it included premium coffees. Standard cocktails tended to be made with cheap mixers and squash rather than fruit juice, so choose carefully. We had a junior suite as we were travelling with friends and these were the only balcony cabins we ...

Poor quality

Review for a Europe - Eastern Mediterranean Cruise on Marella Explorer 2

Jonno1953
2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

We chose Explorer 2 because of the locations visited we have done four cruises now with them over the years but now unfortunately since Covid the quality of the food is appalling Luke warm if you’re lucky and over the years I have used them the menu hasn’t changed . The staff are excellent and always a smile although some of restaurant staff don’t listen to what you want of the menu and couldn’t ...

NOT GOOD

Review for a Europe - Eastern Mediterranean Cruise on Marella Explorer 2

BBJohneve
10+ Cruises • Age 70s

This was the first time using Marella and the last. We thought that by using them as it a smaller ship this would be a lovely restful cruise. WRONG!. The ship seemed to be fully booked as there was no room to be had on the sun decks on the sea day or when passengers returned from trips, it was crowded. You could not lay on the decks if you wanted a rest as the ship played loud music most of the ...
