Disappointingly Bad

Marella Celebration Cruise Review by Brooko

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Nov 2017
  • Destination: Transatlantic

We have done over 20 Thomson cruises and although most of the ship particularly the cabins are tired we have always enjoyed the entertainment and cruise. This one was shocking....the entertainment team spent more time on deck 6 smoking than they did entertaining, they put on a deck party that lasted 35minutes where they just all danced together and did not involve any of the passengers and when were in dock there was no entertainment at all on the decks. All the shows were poor and pretty much everyone felt the same way one of the comedians thought it was funny to tell homephobic jokes and although we are not gay it was very uncomfortable. We were at sea for 6 days and they did nothing extra on the decks, most people had to make their own entertainment. I could go on and on about how disappointed we were and in fact couldn't wait to get off the ship and come home. There was no sail away party and even when the outside decks were full with passengers no extra entertainment was put on. If this is the future of the old Thomson cruises now called Marcella we certainly won't be doing another one

Cabin Review

Cabin Deluxe 078

We upgraded to a deluxe cabin so we knew what to expect, and fortunately though experience we asked for air conditioning to be turned up however the whole of deck 8 was boiling we no air conditioning even the chief engineer came up and could not understand why it was so hot however he didn't do anything to fix it.
