First experience of Tui cruise. Only really one small but important niggle.

Additional details

Sail Date: Nov 2018
Cabin:

Our reason for booking this Tui cruise was that we booked late and needed a disabled cabin, Tui were the only cruise line that could accommodate this at such short notice.

We are not “seasoned” cruisers, this was only our fourth cruise in total and we have only sailed with P&O previously. We were nervous reading the reviews but have to say from the outset that we did enjoy our seven nights on Marella Discovery.

I will try to make this review as fair and informative as I can.

Cabin Review

As I said previously, the cabin was very spacious (plenty of room for my husband to drive his little mobility scooter in and turn it round) and the bathroom adequately adapted with a shower seat and grab rails. Our cabin had a balcony which we used for about ten minutes the whole time we were on board; it transpired that every time we could, or wanted, to sit out, the sun was on the other side of the ship, sod’s law. I’m sure other people have different experiences of a balcony cabin but for us, it wasn’t worth the extra money. We could have done with a chest of drawers in the cabin (there was plenty of room to fit one in) as storage space was at a minimum.
