Sail Date: Feb 2019
Cabin:

This was our third Caribbean cruise with TUI but the first with Marella. The first two were on the Dream and the Celebration.

Marella have brought a more commercial side to TUI which is not necessarily for the best. A sense of greed has crept in which is a shame. Having said that, we still enjoyed our one week cruise very much and have booked again for next year.

In this review, I aim to review each element briefly with areas where improvement is necessary highlighted.

Cabin Review

Cabin Internal

Our cabin was a good size with excellent storage and a really good shower. Our cabin steward, Rega, was polite, courteous and thorough in his work. A credit to Marella.
