Marella Dream Cruise Review by mjbph

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Nov 2016
  • Destination: the Caribbean

short flight out was best part all downhill after that ship had leaking pipes everywhere,now 30 years old and showing it,swimming pools were oblong tubs,the wife best describes it as pontins on water not a cruise i want to repeat one port of call in the dominican rep la romana was just dangerous, dock was a commercial one for container ships and if you attempted a walk ashore you put your life in danger even the police had machine guns ,

decent food in the canteens(yes i do mean canteens as in the old factory ones)sunbeds were in short supply people were up at 5am to get one,the german side of the company keep the best ships and send the uk the scrap end shipswe regularly saw maintenance carrying very large pipe sections around the ship,only good thing was the crew but they deserved a better ship to crew,as it is we will be avoiding thomson `cruises`
