Sail Date: Oct 2019
Cabin:

We chose this cruise because it's the newest ship of the Marella fleet. It is not a brand new ship.

Now to dispel some of the complaints posted on this site about Naples airport. Naples is a very small airport. If several flights land at the same time then expect delays getting your luggage. We flew in from Birmingham and we only had to wait 20 minutes. Someone from Marella was on hand to help us. Marella staff were on hand to help us every step of the way. There is a 10 minute walk to the coach transfer. Those who require assistance will be helped.

Transfer to the cruise terminal took 25 minutes. We were processed very quickly and we're having lunch on the ship as our cabins weren't ready until 12.30. your cases will be taken off you in the terminal building and taken direct to your cabin.

Cabin Review

Cabin Inside

A lovely cabin. Very comfortable and very clean. There is a slight whiff which occasionally happens but that is cruise life. It's not so bad that it will spoil your cruise and it doesn't happen every day. Ali our Cabin n Steward the as very helpful and even got my diabetic husband a Sharpe's box.

The entertainment in the Broadway Theatre has been very good do far.
