Chose a junior suite for our trip around the Fjords.
The weather and ports were faultless -
For that reason we are glad we went.
This ship and staff - appalling.
Self service at best
No service at worse OR indeed - glasses stomped down on bar
Barmen swearing and indeed backchat in their own language
And just so boring..
Missed the buzzers and bells of a big ship
The officers never acknowledge you - walked by head down - In twenty years of cruising I have seldom met such a rude crew
Cabin steward was first class - as always - the workforce are the best - but unfortunately are lead by a dreary Captain who is well past his Best Before Date.
Music and entertainment ... think 1980s Hi-De-Hi level.
Nice Gin Bar spoiled by being adjacent to an open doorway on to the smoking area,
As a non smoker (and yes, reformed ex smoker) I found it such a shame as it was the one nice bar I enjoyed, and could get a decent drink
Premium all inclusive was good for quality drinks (when you could find one) and canned drinks + water.
Dining - forget it - worst ever - options very limited
I would not repeat Marella and after twenty years of cruising it takes a lot to deter me from not giving something another try
Final straw in debarkation - complete and absolute shambles -
Alongside P&O .. (even worse dare I say it?)
Booked Norwegian for 2020 - they value their guests and their ships are real ships - not dated old boats which were retired by decent lines long ago..
Like their ships.. Marella is history for me!
Beautiful cabin - but no perks for being the second highest level of room on board
Not a single perk - zero
Excursion cancelled - no time to re plan :(
Beautiful - lovely walk aroound town and museum - dont miss a beer in the pub - its worth the £70 for two half beers and a platter of cheese - so lovely.
Lovely walk - pretty port
