Sail Date: Jun 2019

been with marella before,not the biggest ships but some value as the basic drinks package is in with the price,entertainment was good and the food is good,but not the italian restuarant the vote is out on that,but Norras paizza place excellent,although they say referb ship only in the public areas cabins not only bathrooms

the food is good and lots of places to eat from lots of choice,thae speciality restaurants are also very good

the standard drinks package is excellent but they dont do banana banches on explorer 1 or 2 as they do on discovery,you can upgrade the drinks package if you like,

Cabin Review

Cabin mini suite

referb ship maybe but not the cabins so much,the bathroom was new glass encased shower in bath,no proper sink just both sides slopped down to a hole for water to drain away,looks modern but no practible use at all as no sink plug,everything else in the bathroom was new,the cabin was not,kept very clean but was worn,half the lights did not work =,but was fixed after compaint within 48 hrs,the balcony was large but again tired looking the wood on the floor in places was rotten and needed replacing the funiture was new,the public places refered but not so the cabins
