Additional details

Sail Date: Aug 2018

So …….. For my Wife's Birthday I surprised her with the Spanish Delights TUI Cruise aboard the Marella Dream. Have Cruised with TUI previously so knew what to expect ( more or less ) - The Dream is an 'older' lady however, the crew do an amazing job of cleaning / maintenance albeit often at inappropriate times !

Cabin: on deck seven ( 7139 ) highly recommended, our cabin steward was amazing! - aim for mid ships if you can, its nearer the restaurants / bars / show lounges. The air conditioning however is a nuisance, gave me endless sore throats.

Food: ……. ah' the all important food was ………. appalling at times, forever cold / tasteless / 'odd' ! How bout' Beef Stroganoff cooked with whole lemons that were cut in half and then 'stewed'-in with the gravy !!! totally disgusting - off putting to say the least.

Cabin Review

Cabin 3 bed Cabin

Large Outside Cabin, midships - kept immaculately clean by our cabin steward Candi, Large comfy bed, sofa bed also.Hated the shower - it was powerful / hot but placed at a strange angle - you had to lean sideways to get under it ! TV in the cabin is fed to the rooms on a 'loop' / pre-recorded mind numbing dross.

Port Reviews

Palma de Mallorca (Majorca)

Travelled 14 hours to get to the ship hence to tired to go ashore. Plus the main town is beyond walking distance.
