Marella Discovery 2 Cruise Review by Philistine

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: May 2017
  • Destination: the Mediterranean

We have been with most if not all the Thomsons fleet, and each experience we have witnessed the decline in standards. The cabin/ship itself was fine, but the "as standard" all inclusive simply means, cheap sub standard wine, which you have to queue to get served yourself. This eliminates the need for waiting staff, one of the reasons I enjoy cruising, I want to be waited on. The few staff available were curt and unfriendly, the destination services deliver no helpful information, and the crème was the "virtual reality" entertainment, in short, videos, which of course they didn't have to employ entertainment staff either. The food was abysmal, and the chef should be made to walk the plank. All in all Thomsons, you have lost it , no style, none of the niceties or service one would expect. You will not see our custom anymore.Oh ! the weather, which you have no control over was mainly good.
