Marella Discovery 2 Cruise Review by keirlen
- Sail Date: June 2017
- Destination: Mediterranean
The show lounge was very comfortable and the singers and dancers were of the usual high standard you expect from Thomson, the rest of the entertainment team were all very acceptable but I thought the solo saxophonist played for himself accompanied by backing tracks and it was unbearable, I never heard him play any melodic numbers at all, it was all Jaz stuff which the majority of patrons don't understand, he never spoke and I never heard anyone applaud him.
The pool area was very good and spacious with plenty of sunbeds and chairs in the shaded areas below the top deck, the large screen display meant you could see any demonstrations easily from wherever you were without crowding around the stage to see what was going on.
The Surf & Turf and Kora La dining as well as the Main restaurants I never used, being on my own, but I spoke to many cruisers who all recommended them.
The all inclusive drinks package was very good and there was free ice cream available, The introduction of the Snack Shack was a novel and well used feature, the free cabin safe also saved me £25 but the single supplement is as always a sore point for me, why I have to pay £65 a night extra when i only eat for one drink for one use hot water and bedding for one I will never understand, the Greed of Thomson / Tui I suppose, I feel as if I am paying for my wife who sadly I have no longer by my side.
