  3. Marella Celebration
My Wife and I have been cruising for many years on Royal Caribbean, Princess and P and O.We decided to go on the Marella Celebration because of the itinerary. We booked a Balcony cabin and were delighted with the size of the room. They staff were the friendliest we have ever had on board a ship always smiling and friendly everyone of them that passed you said hello from the ships officers to painters . The reception staff were so pleasant and helpful rather than the stuffy approach we have experienced on other ships. Embarking the ship was really easy we were in our Cabin in minutes and our cases arrived within 30 minutes not the normal 4 hour wait. The all inclusive package had a good choice of lager beer and Cider with top shelf spirits not watered down as we have read on previous reviews, the drinks were so good we did not have to upgrade to the premium package. The food in the restaurants was excellent and the service could not be faulted, the buffet restaurant always had fresh supplies of food. We also visited the Asian restaurant this was as good as any Indian restaurant we have visited in the UK. The entertainment was superb with some of the best singers we have seen when cruising. We will certainly be cruising with Marella in the future.

Wonderful surprise
