Exceptional - intimate, luxurious and genuine

Review for a Italy Cruise on Emerald Azzurra

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

The cruise we took sailed to the destinations that are on your "must visit" list... but the thought and care that has gone into how to present the destinations is evident. The ship facilities are superb... easy to find, use and understand. Extraordinary food and beverages... and such a wonderful range of local produce and dishes. A level of service that is difficult to describe - ...

Review for a Italy Cruise on Viking Sky

We chose Viking because we really liked the destinations we were allowed. Also, they allowed us to cancel for any reason prior to the cruise - ...

Cruising During Covid with MSC

Review for a Italy Cruise on MSC Grandiosa

10+ Cruises • Age 110s

MSC are one of the first cruise lines to start operating their ships again following the situation with Covid-19. Whilst they appear to be getting it right and the experience was excellent they could be leading to a total disaster. Embarkation All passengers are provided with their allocated embarkation time and its important that you are respectful of this not only for yourself but other ...

Great first cruise

Review for a Italy Cruise on Marella Explorer 2

Clifford tuttle
First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

My wife and I have just returned from a cruise and stay package with Marella, staying firstly at the wonderful conca park hotel in Sorrento then onto the Explorer 2. Given it was our first cruise, We obviously have limited experience of cruises but must say that we found our first experience to be amazing. Every aspect of the cruise was fantastic, from the cabin we had (a standard balcony ...

First time and the last time

Review for a Italy Cruise on Marella Explorer 2

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

We chose this cruise because we wanted to have a weeks stay in Sorrento afterwards. It was our first cruise and after reading the reviews our expectations were not too high. After all it isn’t a high end cruise so we were not expecting luxury. Cabin - our balcony cabin was a good size, with more storage space than we could possibly use ( I pack the kitchen sink). Tea and coffee making ...

Amazing, best holiday ever - First Time Cruisers

Review for a Italy Cruise on Marella Explorer 2

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

This was our first cruise and although we have nothing else to compare it with, can honestly say it was the best experience ever. Yes, there is a bit of a walk from the airport to get on the coach, but its not that far. Embarkation and check in had a nice feel to it, with welcoming drinks etc., Our Cabin was always clean, with fresh towels and pool towels whenever you needed them, The food ...

Good cruise but improvements necessary

Review for a Italy Cruise on Marella Explorer 2

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

The experience started badly in Manchester Airport, the check in lines were unbelievable it took nearly 2 hours to check in. This needs to be sorted there was no separate check in fo cruise passenger or if you had printed your own boarding passes which would have speeded everything up. Naples airport dreadful too had to walk for 20 minutes in the heat with cases ! Thought suitcases would have gone ...

Review for a Italy Cruise on Marella Discovery

aunty waff
2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

The price, the ports, the all inclusive package and the fact that we could stay on in corfu all lead us to pick this cruise. The ship was beautiful, and easy to find our way around. We had balcony cabins which were great, and our steward was very attentive and looked after our needs. We ate alot in the mdr, including the Italian option upstairs and service was excellent as was the food. Many ...

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

Our cruise was with TUI, Marella Explorer 2. We sailed out of Naples 2nd May 2019. We have cruised 14 times before with many different companies and ships however, we feel that Tui Marella Explorer 2 is the worst ship and cruise that we have ever been on. We have cruised with Thomson 3 times and have always enjoyed the ships, food, very friendly staff and happy atmosphere on board. We feel ...
