Oh the great debate: to cruise or not to cruise amid a global pandemic? But like most folks, after 15 months of restrictions, we decided to take a punt on a Western UK cruise - thinking that was least likely to be cancelled.

I’ll be honest - we would not have considered a spin around GB under any other circumstances.

We had not travelled with Marella before. But we’re impressed by the fare - especially as this included all drinks and tips.

Cabin Review

First time balcony travellers, largely due to an impressive upgrade offer. Spacious room with more than enough storage space. Everything you would expect to find. Despite restrictions the room was still serviced twice a day and was also “deep cleaned” mid way through.
