Marella Spirit Cruise Review by Eurwen

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

Our second time on the spirit and again really enjoyed every moment. Had a balcony suite so it was really lovely to sit on the balcony after a long day of walking. Every one was so kind, cheerful and helpful. Made lots of friends as we were in the Compass Rose every evening and sat with different interesting people. One evening as we were eating, a pod of dolphins and tuna swam past, and the ship slowed down so that everyone could enjoy seeing them- I doubt if the bigger cruise ships would do that! The ship is extremely clean and the food isn't cold as some reviews said. Enjoyed the entertainment every evening and the team are so enthusiastic and give 100%. We went on two trips- the tuk-tuk and Gibraltar on tour own, but you could do both on your own really because the tuk-tuks are waiting for you in Lisbon and you could walk really early to the cable car in Gibraltar and no queuing.

Porto itself was very disappointing but the beach was lovely.

Gibraltar- be warned some of the shops close early on the Saturday.,
