Marina Cruise Review by JamieNancy

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jul 2018
  • Destination: the Baltic Sea
  • Cabin Type: Verandah Stateroom

The Marina is a wonderful ship with exemplary service and dining geared toward adult travelers. We spent four pre-cruise days in Amsterdam and a week post-cruise in London. Be sure to make your own arrangements from Southampton to London before disembarking. Taxis are available if you don’t, but are expensive. Experiencing the Banksy and Van Gogh museums, Scandinavian fjords, Oslo Sculpture Park, reindeer sausage, fish market in Bergen, everything Beatles in Liverpool, Edinburgh Castle, having tea and scones at Windsor Castle and seeing the shows ‘Everybody’s Talking About Jamie’ in London and ‘The King and I’ at The Palladium were some of the highlights. The ship excursions are somewhat overpriced so we research the ports and like to self explore. The historic significance of Irish, Scottish and English churches, catacombs, and castles I omnipresent. Westminster Abbey is a must do experience. Do not let the line/wait deter you. Embarking and disembarking is a breeze on The Marina. We’ve already booked a 180 day around-the-world cruise on the Regatta for 2020.

Oops-it’s the Insignia we’ll be on for ATW 2020! Back to the Marina...Jaime, the manager of the Terrace is professional, efficient and a true gentleman. We were so happy to see him again since he was the manager on our 2017-2018 34-day Australian cruise. Trivia was not run well on the Marina, due to a weak Cruise Director, who was more interested in himself and his shoe collection, I kid you not, than interacting positively with the guests. Barista and library on the Marina are top notch.
