We booked this cruise and didn't expect a great deal from it, oh, were we surprised!! Ok, the ship is small and older than some of the cruise ships out there, but it doesn't lack anything in our opinion. The crew were simply amazing. The Marketplace was very good, but we are not.picky eaters. Just a mention for a lady in the Marketplace called Aka, one of the crew. She is a credit to Marella and her service skills were 1st rate. We loved this cruise so much we have booked for October!! The entertainment team worked very hard to make sure everyone enjoyed their time on board. Luke in the Squid and Anchor (and many other places) was great. No problem over getting a sunbed or a drink. Excellent ports of call. Captain was lovely. I cannot really fault this holiday in anyway. If it had been a new ship with Marella it would be booked up for years, but what's age at the end of the day!!
