Marella Dream Cruise Review by davidle
- Sail Date: November 2017
- Destination: Canary Islands
The other matter that we found interesting was the drinks package. We are both mainly wine drinkers, we don't drink during the day but look forward to a couple of glasses of wine with dinner. Although there are quite a number of wines on the wine list, we were only entitled to the house wine; 1 white, 1 rose and 1 red. The white and the rose were okay, the red was pointless - no bouquet and no taste. When I looked at the wine list for other options I saw that the house wine was priced at 4.20 a glass, and interestingly a number of other wines were also priced at 4.20 a glass. Now logic would say that I should be able to have any wine priced the same as the house wine without additional charge, so you can appreciate how puzzled I was when I was told that I would have to pay 3 pounds for a glass of alternative wine that was at the same listed price. I pride myself on being able to add-up, takeaway, multiply and divide, I also own businesses, I have never felt the need to insult a customer's intelligence! I asked staff about this, they said it was down to management, please step forward management and explain yourselves.
The food onboard is basically 1960's school dinners. The fine dining is not fine dining.
But the staff, as always do their best even in difficult circumstances.
