Have been on Marella ( formerly Thomson) Cruises before and this one appealed as it was a new itinerary with some great places.
Flight was long but good, arrived on time and apart from a queue at airport immigration we arrived at the ship after a 20 min journey. Check in was done on board and was speedy and our luggage appeared quite quickly.
Cabin - we had an inside cabin on deck 6. Although near stairs and lift it was very quiet and we heard no noise from bars downstairs. It was an ideal deck to be on - down to bars/restaurants and a few flights up to the pool deck, yet away from engine noise/vibration. Although not large there's plenty of drawers and cupboard space & a small sofa,adequate for our 2 weeks. The bathroom was small but well planned & also had good storage space , Ive been in smaller.
Although by lift & stairs very quiet - quite soundproofed, rarely heard our neighbour.
Deck 6 good place to be in relation to public rooms.
didt see cabin steward very often but kept our cabin spotless.
