Sail Date: Feb 2020
Cabin:

We went for Marella as have been with them lots of times before and always the best for entertainment. However, we were disappointed with the shows in the first week, although they improved by the second week. We understood the team had not been together long and also that another production company are involved with explorer, and it showed.

Not impressed with the Cruise Director, except for his bollywood dancing. Not a lot going on during the day - but as we had lots of ports of call, this was excepted.

Very good reggae band and good party on deck the second week. Had to be brought indoors the first week due to rain.

Cabin Review

cabin great, except for hard beds and small pillows. Nice large bath towels, and proper shower door. Cabin stewards excellent
