Marella Celebration Cruise Review by hamish99

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

We chose the Celebration for the Gibraltar visit, because it was the place we wanted to visit most, spending around 10 hours in port,

most of the port visits were pretty good, although the visit to Portimãoi was rather pointless,

not much to see or do,

activities for younger passengers were limited, my son was 15 at the time, all the pools at close at 6pm leaving nothing to do at all for the kids

the food was very good for buffet food, and the staff were excellent

very limited and very expensive WiFi at £49.99 for 7 days, you can get WiFi in your cabin

The cabin was very good, and cleaned lots, sometimes twice a day,

we didn't take any of the excursions, we thought pp £37 for a 1 hour trip was far too much

there are a few hidden surcharges on food and drinks, so not all-inclusive,

we were charged £7 per person for a shuttle bus to Portimaoi, that was quicker to walk than the bus,

although the crew were very good, the ship let the cruise down, so i doubt i would cruise with Thomson again,

there are better value deals on better equipped ship for a longer duration
