Sail Date: Sep 2022

Chose this Adriatic cruise as tge highlight was Venice which was subsequently cancelled as could not dock there - we were told this after forking out thousands of pounds) You could choose to travel for 6 hours plus to get there in a day but we chose not to. Eve entertainment was okay but all other was appalling. Dirty plastic glasses everywhere, food just okay. Service was abmissal and covid checks non exist ant. Won't be using this company ever again as use to be okay but now absolutely awful. Testing upon embarking was an absolute farce. Do not get the premium drinks package as it was a rip off and did not stock proper gin premium in correct bars. Not enough staff had to wait in excess of 30 minutes every time you needed a drink and to cap it all there was no covid control at all on ship and I know of over 20 people from cruise all now extremely ill with covid. It appears that marella should be sunk immediately
