  3. Marella Dream
3 sisters and our sister in law wanted 7 days somewhere warmer than home. We were all on our first cruise so did not know what to expect! We had 2 cabins next to each other on level 5, they were larger than expected and spotless. Our first meal was in the Lido which was ideal after a long day travelling. We then had all our meals in the Orion which was very good, food superb,service friendly by well trained staff, wine glasses always refilled. We loved the Waterside bar in the evening, the trio was great and the atmosphere a little less hectic. We liked th quizzes ( but was amazed at the presenter of the pop one who referred to CARL Simon twice, not Carly, she could have read the questions as she obviously had not. The bingo was great and not too long, I had not played since I was a child! All in all a memorable and great week, we will be back! Very disappointed with Agadir souks trip, far too long in first souk and not longer in the larger one, also being walked through lots of vegetables, which were great but no use to us! The touristy things we were walked past on the way to the bus. There was little time to buy let alone to barter.

Sheer escapism
