Marella Discovery 2 Cruise Review by Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah
- Sail Date: December 2018
- Destination: Eastern Caribbean
In summary, the food at Marella Discovery2 is mediocre. The Islands buffet did not get any better. Same spread every single morning, it got pretty tiring. For a ship with mostly Brits on board the fish and chips at Snack Shack was very disappointing. My daughter and niece had a bite of the burger and gave up on it. The wings and fries were good but you can only eat so much wings. We ate once at 47 Degree (Italian), it took over 2 hours for the whole meal which was also mediocre. The rest of the dinner were all at Gallery 47, it wasn't bad, but really have lots of room for improvement.. I didn't want to risk paying extra for the other restaurants, as I was afraid it'll be mediocre as well. Overall the food was quite disappointing.
Us Canadians, are blessed to be so close to the Caribbean and have plenty of options including All Inclusive Resorts, with Cuba being the least expensive of all. It is a common tag line to see "you don't go to Cuba for food". Food in Cuba would have scored a 5 star in comparison to Marella D2 Exotic Explorer's food. All the cruises and resorts I have done I would say I would re do, except I don't, only because there are so many to try and experience. Marella Discovery 2 is the first one to NOT do again.
Cabins #7119 & #7121 were not good cabins, we felt all the vibrations and ship's swaying and a very long walk from the center of the ship. #7121's AC did not work properly even after it was checked and supposedly fix. There is also a sewer smell that comes and go. Probably caused by the toilet flooding from the cabin across from us. Very thankful though that we did not have that problem, as they were never moved to another room. Room attendants were very good, they kept the rooms clean and always with fresh towels. Thanks Gogo.
The itinerary was good. Excursions we did were all great, which I booked privately. All Inclusive drinks were plentiful, good and not water down. Entertainment was also good.
Well, this is my take. Having said all that we still had an awesome time.
