From arrival to departure the whole experience was not what we have come to expect from Marella, having previously cruised five times on Thomson/Marella cruises with good experiences.

We joined the ship in Las Palmas only to find we had arrived in the middle of a Norovirus outbreak! The ship was under a sanitation shutdown!

Pools, jacuzzi’s and library closed! Buffet restaurants were not self-service. Tea & coffee even orange juice could not be poured without a plastic gloved hand giving assistance.
