  3. Marella Celebration
The ships company try very hard to entertain you, they manage to do that quite successfully. The shows are imaginative and are very well executed, although seating is at a premium. Unfortunately the theatre is not terraced so you are always looking through the audience. There are popular game shows that the ships entertainment department have adapted for the cruisers and are lots of fun. I personally like city sized ships, so I found the Celebration to be quite small, that's not to detract from its charm, it does have personality. Although the crew work very hard, despite their efforts, the boat is dated and has the bulk of the accommodation just above sea level. The cabin, 664, was a good size other than the bathroom which is collecting grime of time and could do with a makeover. The food was plenty but basic. But the redeeming factor is that you can get a terrific Brit brekky.

We thought the Thompson's tours to be prohibitively expensive £90pp but we tried one to see if we were wrong and we wanted to be escorted through the Holy Land seeing everything there was to see. But I feel we were ripped off for this trip and wished we had done it independently.

Then we were given a 'tuck box' to see us through the day, nice touch..not had one since school!

Got on the bus and we were off.

Overall a good cruise which was actually value for money. Would I recommend this cruise ship? Certainly!

Hi de Hi cruisers!
