Additional details

Sail Date: Aug 2019

Never again will I sail with Marrella, from day one the drains stank and had to be treated daily, this permeates around the ship.

The food in the main dining room and the cafe is substandard cheap rubbish, I've never sent a meal back on a cruise until this one.

My wife got sick on day 7 with diarrhea, probably something she ate.

Cabin Review

Cabin Large Balcony

The best bit is the hammock. The room is average sized and average quality, the bathroom stinks though..

Port Reviews

Newcastle (England)

Slow and cumbersome with two buses involved


Superb shopping
