Sail Date: Apr 2018

As a "Cruise Virgin," I had nothing to compare the Marella Dream ship, cabin, food, entertainment or crew to. At 61 years old, I can honestly say this was the best holiday I have ever had! The choice of restaurants, food and drinks has been brilliant, the nightly evening shows stunning, and daily and night-time activities very varied providing something for everyone. All staff from the kitchen staff, bar staff, cleaning staff, entertainment staff, crew members up to the captain himself were as extremely polite, courteous, helpful and hard-working as each other, resulting in a camaraderie and sense of fun between the staff and the passengers.

Having read the previous negative reviews for this cruise, I was more than a little apprehensive - but whatever caused those bad reviews has certainly been rectified. I met some amazing people, staff and passengers.

My comments are repeated by my co-travelIer, who is a seasoned cruiser of 14 previous cruises, so it is not my lack of knowledge/experience of cruising which has prompted me to write this review.

Cabin Review

Cabin Outside Deluxe

Fabulous - very comfortable, light, sufficiently spacious, everything we needed. Cleaning staff amazing - so pleasant, hard-working and thorough. Can't fault anything!

Port Reviews

Lovely area - lots of historical sites, amphitheatre, beautiful views from the Castle.
