decided to spend Christmas away last year, 1st time ever, chose Marella cruise as was convenient to fly from Birmingham, all inclusive including tips and very english. Haoliday was great ship was full and very busy. Couldnt fault the ship and entertainment great.
Now the moans- the cruise director Adam was never to be seen in the day only evenings and on prevoius Marella cruises the director was about all the time.
The music around the pools was very very loud and always on, no peace st all.The indoor pool lovely and was adults only at certain times but no one to check and children in there a lot. You couldnt get a swim in the outdoor pool as the children took over.
There was no shampoo body lotion etc in the cabins and we had a balcony cabin.
Far too many foreign staff that didnt understand english, but all very obliging. The man that gave the talks from the spa waffled on and on and after one and half hrs there was still no solutions to any of the talks. He talked on diet, liver problems swollen ankles and many more but was no wiser when he had finnished.
Evening meal in the resturants people were going in in tee shirts and shorts not dressed smartly and no one corrected them.
Overall we had a lovely time but would not travel over holiday time.
Cabin fine but lacked toitries eg shampoo. body lotion. No drawer space
