Where do u start? While searching for a first cruise for my husband and I , I stumbled on marella discovery 2 through Sunwing.

We choose Marella mostly because of price point .. all inclusive and the ports for pride of panama.

Everything lived up to our expectations, had a balcony room mid ship and was great, I loved the tea kettle in room instead of the usual coffee pot! Lots of tea bags, coffee, milk and sugar. We had tea and coffee every morning on the balcony.

The food was good never had anything we didn’t like. ( well except for black pudding) I will leave that for the brits.

Buffet had something for everyone.

The snack shack was my favourite I like the fast food . I had the fish and chips everyday, so good!

My husband loved the chicken wings and the burgers.

STAFF.. ALL AMAZING!! Never waited for drinks long , served fast everywhere and all so friendly. I work in bar/ restaurant industry so I recognize good service when I see it! I know when they are busy and what drinks are a little more time consuming. I’ve been to many resorts and the staff are great.. but guess what they are they way because they want you to tip them. The staff on Marella are not being nice for that reason, as tips are included. They just like their jobs! I would

Seriously say the staff on marella discovery 2 are the best I’ve seen.

ENTERTAINMENT.. AWESOME .. this team works so hard to entertain the audience. They are all so talented and we enjoyed the shows so much.

I really hope sunwing remains offering this package to us Canadians , we will definitely do another cruise with Marella.

Oh and we did really enjoy meeting so many great people. So nice haveing a drink talking and learning about each other’s countries.made for some very interesting conversations.

I could go on and on about our trip! Any questions you have , I can try to help
