  3. Marella Discovery 2
This was our first cruise on a European based cruise line as opposed to North American. We were attracted to the all inclusive and air travel options as well as the opportunity to visit Havana which was cut short by Cuban Harbour authorites due to lack of dock space which increased our stay in Cozumel. After our arrival in Montego Bay which was a bit of a nightmare and confusion clearing customs and a bus trip through mass traffic jams we arrived at the cruise terminal which is in dire need of an upgrade.Basiclly a very spartan wharehouse. Our ship which used to be the well loved RCL Legend of the Seas is in great shape and all facilities are in top condition. Dining options were many and the food .while not exceptional was satisfactory in the main dining rooms which we used every evening' the tables are arranged in such manner so you can enjoy conversation with fellow diners who were predominately British and delightful conversationalists. The production shows in the show lounge included the best overall vocalists we ever enjoyed on any cruise so far. The all inclusive bar package was great and we were well taken care of in the Atrium bar by the personality plus Maria . Our day in Havana was mostly taken up by utilizing the hop on hop off double decker bus which takes you all over the city, The city is obviously in need of an upgrade which is underway but has a long way to go, Enjoyed the Caymans,very nice and friendly too. All in all would not hesitate to travel with Marella again

Excellent value
