Marella Spirit Cruise Review by Hall40

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Aug 2018
  • Destination: the Western Mediterranean

Our third time on this old lady,being it's last year of service had to have a final fling on it.It did not disappoint but yes it is a bit shake and noisy in some areas but the staff many who have been on years are just a good as ever

Entertainment team work their socks off and the English comic very good ,however this was his last gig on this ship.If you like a good drink throughout the week then all inclusive can be good value ,if not just pay as you go.Cocktails however a bit weak. Tip always ask for the branded spirit e.g. Gordon's or Red Label whisky if not you may get the cheap stuff.Overall the food is good with generous portions in the Compass restaurant.

Yes the furnishings and cabins are a bit dated but reflect the ambience when this ship was new.I understand this ship is owned by a Greek shipping line and is the last of the fleet to go.All other ships are TUI owned.

My only fear is as the new ships get larger the personal and intimate feel of the Spirit will be lost forever which will be a pity.You will have a good time on the final few cruises of this old lady.
