Marella Discovery Cruise Review by Flawless1974

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Oct 2017
  • Destination: the Western Mediterranean

Some lovely restaurants attended by excellent waiting staff. Three of the six restaurants have an additional charge applied. Most of the food was very good with only one or two disappointing meals experienced during our week long stay.

The bars look very 70's but were also well attended.

The cabins are a bit bland whilst the communal parts of the ship appear very dated. My wife and I enjoyed our stay but were considerably younger than the average age on ship (54). One point of note; the ships entertainment is absolutely terrible with every cliched game done so badly it was painful! There is a small nightclub on the top floor which plays nothing but 60s and 70s music. The 'DJ' was quite rude to anyone who requested any other music! Apparently the other staff just accept how rude she is.

The excursions were very expensive but were well organised.

The fitness suite was a bit tired but was well used. There is also a Spa which whilst approximately twice high street prices, was very good.
