Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Feb 2020
  • Destination: Asia

My wife & I booked this trip at the last minute and can honestly say "WOW!"

Although we had to miss Cambodia due to the virus situation we were blessed to have an overnight stay in Vietnam which turned out fantastic for us as it gave us time to see Ho Chi Minh and a trip down Mekong Delta.

The staff & crew were fantastic especially the waiters Damoder,David,Dede & Ernesto.

The captain,Chris,was so down to earth and his announcements were enjoyable yet informative.

Visiting Thailand,Malaysia,Singapore etc gave us the chance to visit some breathtaking temples,beaches etc and we spent very little due to the local street food etc being less than £5 for 2 people and it was deeeeeelicious!

The cabins on board cleaned daily made it soooo refreshing to get into bed after a great day exploring although it was after a great night onboard also with entertainment for all tastes.

Our housekeeping team Ramil,Liza & Manju were the most attentive and caring as my wife who is disabled was never bothered when she needed to stay in bed longer.

We can only say Thankyou TUI & the Marella Discovery Cruise team for our trip of a lifetime!

Cabin Review

Very clean everyday

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


Although a short stop we made the most of it....take a Rickshaw to and from the town....cheap and great way to see more.

A great boat trip seeing Eagles,Monkeys and swimming in a freshwater lake and finally a beautiful beach.

Temples galore....mind blowing architecture.

Koh Samui

Beautiful place to tour and finish off at Chewang beach.


A trip into Chinatown on the Underground and then a cable car ride over the ship was fantastic
