We chose to take our first cruise with Marella after having it recommended by my sister and we were not disappointed!
We chose the Ionian trip, for seven days . We sailed on the Explorer which was a beautiful ship aimed at giving its passengers the best experience ! the staff are amazing people, multi national and always smiling! The restaurants were all well organised, Latitude 53 have the best queuing system! stress free! The Market place buffet was great and the views while you were eating were fantastic! the food was always excellent in fact we didn't try any of the premium restaurants as the food and service was so good in the others! Tui operate an all inclusive service which makes life on board a great experience too. The shows and entertainment on board were second to none!.
We only paid for one excursion from the ship, but it was worth it! well organised and well informed ! the other days we used Hop on Hop off buses in the various places we arrived at. All in all it was a brilliant trip that we were sad to end! we will definitely be cruising again.
