Review for Marella Discovery to Europe - Western Mediterranean

Me and my husband have just got back from a week's cruise on Marcella Discovery, the Magic of Spain cruise. It was a disaster from start to finish! We flew from Doncaster Sheffield airport and due to a power cut we had to stand in the check in queue for 5 hours. The staff were totally unprepared for this incident and updates were poor. Not a good start! When we arrived on the ship we were ...

Not a 'cheap' cruise £7.5K for 2 weeks for two. Outward trip from MAN was awful delayed over 3 hours, usual efficiency on arrival in Barbados. First impressions of the ship, pretty standard for this level of cruise, public area decor pleasantly contemporary. Usual mix of entertainment, cruise director thinks he is a great singer (he is'nt, leave the singing to the entertainers) and would grab the ...

Having booked with friends we paid £50 each to book cabins on the same deck, but on opposite sides. This was based on the theory that one would always have a pleasant view in ports, sunsets etc. Whilst waiting to board we realised despite this, they put us both on the port side and on decks 6 & 7. On boarding we spoke to “Guest Services” who advised that they never change cabins on day one, so if ...

My wife & I booked this trip at the last minute and can honestly say "WOW!" Although we had to miss Cambodia due to the virus situation we were blessed to have an overnight stay in Vietnam which turned out fantastic for us as it gave us time to see Ho Chi Minh and a trip down Mekong Delta. The staff & crew were fantastic especially the waiters Damoder,David,Dede & Ernesto. The ...

We chose this cruise on Valentine's Day when we found an amazing price on line. Flying from Manchester was quite smooth but our disembarkation in Thailand was so slow and frustrating. Once at the ship our check-in was quick and easy and our cases were at our room within the hour. Our cabin: deck 2 outside was clean and tidy and our cabin crew kept it spotless throughout the cruise. The ...

We are regulars on cruise holidays and were looking forward to our cruise of Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand as these were all countries we had never visited before and my partner was particularly looking forward to visiting Singapore. Plus points - the first week was great fun, we met some great people, the staff in restaurants and bars and cleaning and domestic services ...

Slow boat around Asia - 2nd fire on transformer

I don't normally write a review post holiday but felt on this occasion it was necessary, to help inform potential customers and for Tui to use for continuous improvement. We embarked on christmas day and found out that there had been a fire in the engine room transformer. Planet cruise knew but did not make us aware beforhand. The itinerary had not changed on the ticket confirmation received on ...

We were celebrating Birthdays & Special Anniversary. The itinerary included Koi Samui and Cambodia and was the right dates. Firstly, we have been on many cruises over the years, most higher class but always enjoyed Thomson because of the wonderful service, mainly from the Phillipino and British Staffand their attention to care. However, this is our 2nd trip on Discovery mainly to give it ...

For the itinerary, unfortuately there was a few technical errors so we missed 2 ports. One in particular I was really wanting to visit, Koh samui on Christmas day. But Marella gave us £100 each to spend on board, so shopping away my cares. There was a lot of moaning people on board but to me you just get on with it or spoil the rest of your holiday. I got quite annoyed and defensive saying I have ...
