Having cruised only on Discovery, we decided to try Discovery 2 and we are very glad we did! We flew from Manchester to Malaga and arrived slightly late. We had the usual queueing to check in which did nothing to raise our flagging spirits! As a result our first evening was rather brief... check-in, bar, safely drill, food and bed! Islands Restaurant was very busy and rather chaotic but this was understandable given the late and large influx of passengers. We spent our second day in Gibraltar before sailing on to the delightful Funchal in Madeira. All the itinerary ran on time and we enjoyed every stop. We did our own thing in every destination using public transport or local tour companies. Our cabin (deck 3 inside) was clean and tidy with a super, powerful shower. Our cabin steward dealt with all our concerns and made us feel really welcome. We dined mainly in 47°, and a few times in Islands and Gallery 47. The food was excellent.. great quality, good choice of menus and brilliant service. Islands was great for lunches... we selected our food and took it outside to eat in the verandah area next to the ice cream machine! The entertainment was the biggest plus for us. Jasmine and Adam, the professional dance couple, were excellent. They took excellent dance classes every day and hosted social dance sessions almost every evening! Great teachers, very friendly and very patient... their performances in the Broadway Show Lounge were breathtaking! The Broadway Shows were superb. The entertainment team were tireless and talented and a joy to watch. Manuel and Tom, on piano and guitar respectively, provided excellent entertainment throughout the evenings in the Atrium and Live lounge. We loved this ship, its crew and its sheer good value for money! Read Less

Just back from a Caribbean cruise from the 3rd to the 18th of December 2019, with the Marella Discovery 2, and I was delighted with this holiday, our cabin was on deck 6, and the cabin crew were fantastic especially Vanessa she went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed, the entertainment was great throughout the ship, absolutely loved the shows each night, the bar staff and waiters were always at hand so you literately never had to move from your seat to get a drink, each bar you went to had different entertainment on every night so you were never bored and could take your pick to what suited you. Also every member of staff we met went above and beyond to help you out and make sure your voyage was enjoyable, can’t fault any staff member, the food was good in all restaurants with a great selection on each menu, and again the staff went above and beyond to help you when needed, we seriously have nothing bad to say about our time on the discovery 2 we will certainly be booking again in the very near future. Thank you for such a good experience and a fantastic holiday. I would definitely recommend this ship to anyone that has not sailed on it before. Read Less
