  3. Marella Discovery 2
We chose this West Med cruise having cruised and enjoyed the same ship last year (Eastern Med) Drinks package had been downgraded since our previous cruise ie did not include as many cocktails as last year, so we felt obliged to take the premium package this time round. Service at the bars at times was really slow and frustrating. Entertainment was poor, we only enjoyed the comedian show. Other shows were all much the same, musical and did not really entertain us. Ended up most nights in the small casino which was good and with lovely staff. The food overall was good but we were so disappointed in the Surf and Turf meal. After paying an extra surcharge of over £30 per person, four of us were squashed around a table which was only large enough for two people with side dishes ( no choice was offered ) crowding the whole table. We much preferred the Kora La meal which also has an additional charge. In hind-site the food and atmosphere were both better in the main restaurants. Will most likely not rush back to sail with Tui, at least until the entertainment and bar service has been improved.

Disappointing
