Marella Explorer Cruise Review by Hnoble

10 people found this helpful
Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jun 2018
  • Destination: the Western Mediterranean

Marella Explorer and the crew were absolutely first class. Waiters in the eateries were all very polite, and Geronimo and his merry band were very entertaining. All of the staff were very attentive, always smiling giving a happy relaxed, laid back atmosphere throughout, not stuffy at all.

Food was brilliant, everything was immaculately clean in all public areas.

Cabin was spacious, balcony was a bonus. Make use of the safe !

Everyone was so friendly, and chatted and passed on advice to each other.

My advice would be to research and plan excursions before you go, coaches don't have a toilet and can spend a lot of time in traffic queues, restricting sight seeing time.

A rickshaw in Barcelona was recommended, instead of bus.

Elaine the welfare officer was very helpful, lovely person!!

Receptionists weren't always helpful, a little standoffish at times.

Latitude and the Market Place were my favourite places to eat.

Cabin Review

Cabin Large balcony 10052

Perfect for us, plenty of wardrobe and storage space. Only criticism was the height of the toilet !!

Aircon was a little noisy, but got used to it.

Bed very comfy, housekeeping first class.
