Fantastic time on this cruise.
The staff and crew made the holiday from the time we boarded until the time we left.
We would like to thank all the staff but would like to name a few who made our first time special.
Our cabin steward was Ronaldo who always smiled and was always there if we needed anything.
Every morning in the Meridian restaurant we were greeted by the staff who were all pleasant and helpful especially Rosey.
At night we returned to the Meredian and was spoilt by Frank our waiter who was always pleasant, polite and who spent time learning our names so we felt special (especially my mother who is in her 80’s and everyone called met mammy).
Our wine waiter was Kumar who was so polite and always smiling, he made sure our glasses were never empty and made the most fantastic cocktails.
After the show at night (which were always brilliant) we went to the Horizons bar were the staff could not do enough for you. They were so funny the way the reacted to each other it was sometimes like being at another show.
We would like to thank Mohammed, Roger, Cecelia, Benjamin and Rohan for making our time on the Marella a memorable one.
All the officers were pleasant but we enjoyed chatting to Chimi who was in charge of all the restaurants.
If we met any of the staff or officers around the ship they always spoke and therefore when we look at cruising again in the future it will be with Thompson’s.
Great especially - days at sea, you can spend your time sitting on your own balcony instead of looking for beds free around the ship. On deck 9 there was a bar which you could get drinks and take them to your cabin.
