Hi De Hi on the High Seas

Review for Marella Spirit to Spain

First Time Cruiser

Age 50s

Our first time on a cruise and having travelled with Tui previously we thought we were in safe hands. Some very good experiences onboard; the staff were excellent, the Tui excursions were well organised and guides very good. However the entertainment wasn’t for us, very Hi De Hi, they tried hard but lacked any sophistication. The food was plentiful though more canteen than cuisine. The ship was ...

Chose this cruise because many of the places we hadn't visited before and also the ship itself, been on Spirit 4 times before and it never disappointed we liked the layout of the ship the crew and all the staff were top rank always pleasant and helpful which to us was the most important criteria for a good cruise. Now from here we go downhill Marella as it's now called seem to be trying to cheapen ...

Travelled on this ship approx 8 years ago, it was brilliant, but now the food was poor, cold, and boring, the shows were terrible, I've never heard such screeching, from the singers, had to leave it was that bad. (The English comedien was really good). The cabins were shabby to say the least, and the towels were grey and thread bare. Luckily this ship is going out of service this year, but whoever ...

Age 70s

As a regular cruiser with thomson now marella cruises, we decide to try the oldest vessel in the fleet, the ship itself is well worn but that is expected, The noise of the vessel is bearable and the permanent shaking whilst either sitting relaxed or in one of the bars is all part of sailing with an old ship. But my wife's and I main concern aswel as other passengers was the most important thing ...

Not Really a Marella Cruise Ship

The ship itself is old and tired but everyone knows this in advance with a bit of research. What is harder to find out is that the ship is actually leased by Marella from a Greek company (Celestyal Cruises). Consequently the Captain and senior officers are Greek, which is perfectly fine. The problem is that they are in charge of the food and drinks too and the food is simply no where near as ...

Like another reviewer on Discovery 2. We have been cruising with Thomson/Tui for many years and agree with everything they have said. Celebration was our favourite ship until Discovery came and then we saw how tired Celebration looked. Our first cruise on Discovery was really good ;we were really impressed so we booked another. There were 2 years between the cruises. We were shocked how tired it ...

First Time Cruiser

Age 30s

This was my first cruise and had been recommended by friends to travel with TUI as it's more relaxed. The ship operates a cashless system. You are given a card which is linked to your bank account. Be warned, as soon as you get on the ship you are being harassed in to photographs, massages, the payable restaurants etc. This was very annoying and not appreciated the moment you get on the ship. ...

We were told we could embark at 10.00 am as we had already booked in online. We had to wait until 10.35 to get upstairs into another queue where we were told that we would have to wait for 5 minutes. We got onboard the ship at 11.00 am which was the earliest we have every been able to embark on a ship. On our first day we were asked at least 6 times did we want to purchase a drink's upgrade and ...

We really liked the ship, BUT it is in need of an up date. The cabin was rather poor. Only one bedside table, the other side had a standard lamp ? Very strange. Carpet was dirty and vanity table was broken The food was good, staff was lovely. BUT this ship is to small for the Atlantic and it was a very bumpy ride, with sea sick bags placed on very floor. We had a drinks package, BUT got ...
