Booked this cruise at short notice because we needed cheering up after Christmas. So booked on impulse and paid before reviewing. Big mistake !!!! Our 4th cruise and the first with Tui. The first 3 were with another company and absolutely eye opening. They were brilliant. Not this one though, what a disapointment. The room was lovely in size as we chose a larger room outside, for an extra £45. A large window and space to move around each other was great. We were in the middle of the ship on deck 7. The furnishings are dated and tired but seemed to be clean. The first problem was when we went for a meal in Sirens, selve service, I was struggling with 2 cups of tea and a small plate with a snack on and put them on a tray. Wow, was I told off !! "Sorry but you cant have a tray". When I asked why I was told by the *white suit* they are only for the waiters to collect stuff with, not for passenger use. !!! This I found very odd. When I asked a waiter / cleaner upper he said they dont have enough trays !! A couple of days later the wife was suffering with a sore throat and feeling sick. After struggling a lot trying to bring food and drinks to the table by several trips to fetch food and drink I got fed up and asked at reception. I was told it was not safe to use a tray and not efficient, so they had withdrawn the use of trays. !!?? My wife got worse over the week and we put it down to a mild dose of flu due to the weather being windy and wet. We missed a port stop due to weather and not Tui's fault at all. The entertainment was a very poor standard and the 4 piece group would not have survived the first spot in my local pub and would have been paid off !!! The 2 girl due were very good, the pianist was exellent and the 3 boys in the casino end were so-so. ( Would have been just tolerated in a pub) . A shame but true. Senior staff were not as helpfull as the minions trying to be helpfull. A shortage of sun loungers by the pool and too many reserved. A trio of middle aged ladiest returned from line dancing, 12.30, that started at 11.00 am and were very miffed when there prime located sun beds were taken up !!! Some people ............. . Wife still poorly after arriving home. ( Ship doctor cost £90 and gave antbiotics ) I am generaly not one for being fussy but this ship was a joke !!!> Read Less

Cuban Fusion Cruise, Marella Discovery 2, January 2018 Pre-Cruise Stay. As the outbound flight was at 0915, I travelled to Gatwick Airport the night before and stayed in the Premier Inn North Terminal, which is immediately opposite the North Terminal, where my flight left from. The room was comfortable and quiet. I had a pleasant meal in the evening with very good service. The next morning I went to check-in and then returned to the hotel for a shower and breakfast. I would recommend this hotel – especially if you fly from the North Terminal. Flights & Transfers. I flew on a 787 Dreamliner in the Premium Cabin. Seats were comfortable with plenty of room in both width and pitch. Food was pretty good and included unlimited complimentary drinks and a welcome aboard glass of fizz. Outbound we had a four-course lunch and then afternoon tea. Inbound, a four-course dinner and hot breakfast. The cabin crew on the outbound leg were particularly excellent. Transfer on arrival was efficient and very good. Luggage was handed in at the airport and transferred direct to your cabin. Immigration forms were dealt with swiftly by three staff in a corridor which meant we did not pass right through the airport, leaving by a side-door straight on to waiting coaches. Very short queue at the rather basic Cruise Terminal meant I was off the coach and on to the ship within about 10 minutes. For the inbound flight, luggage was collected overnight from outside the cabin and not seen again until collecting it back at Gatwick Airport. Good job done by TUI and Marella. Ship. Marella Discovery 2 entered service in 1995 as Royal Caribbean's Legend of the Seas and remained as such until last year when she was bought by TUI. She had a refit by TUI before becoming Discovery 2. She is smaller by today's standards, being 70,000 tons and taking around 1,800 passengers. Her public rooms had mostly been re-designed by TUI in a fairly light/bright décor and style – certainly more contemporary than classic style. The Atrium Bar, Bar 11 and Venue lounge were reasonably stylish. Personally I did not find many comfortable seats around the ship. The buffet restaurant (Islands) did not appear to have been refurbished and looked tired. The servery area was spacious but the seating areas really crowded with tables very close together. One thing I did find rather odd – Deck 4 is comprised entirely of public rooms (restaurant, bar/lounge/casino, show-lounge) but there are no toilets on this deck! There are two pools – one indoor, one outside. The outdoor pool area was very busy on sea days and also noisy a lot of the time. My cabin was a small inside on Deck 2, which was ideal for one but would have been a bit tight for two travelling together. Despite being almost below a late-night entertainment venue, it was quiet and the bed was very comfortable. The only refurbishment to the cabin appears to be a new carpet, wall-art, TV and maybe washbasin in the bathroom. The furniture was pretty cheap stuff with a 'flat-pack' feel about it. There was a safe (big enough for a tablet) but no fridge. Air-con was just about sufficient but was set at the lowest temperature the whole week. Food. I found the food pretty disappointing in all venues I used. I didn't use any of the for-fee eating venues. Dishes often did not resemble the description on the menu and portion sizes were pretty small – especially considering that dinner is three-courses as standard. In general terms, fruit juices at breakfast were pretty tasteless and the yogurts were a particularly cheap brand. The sausages were disgusting – probably as much cereal content as meat and utterly tasteless. Three specific examples. 1 - They made fresh 'paninis' in the buffet at lunchtime so I tried one. She asked if I wanted “panini bread” so I said yes. In fact it was only a soft baguette-style roll. I asked for cheese & mushroom and she made it with a spoonful of chopped mushroom and 2 small and very thin bits of 'plastic' cheese-slice. I asked for more cheese as I wouldn't have tasted it otherwise. 2 – My main course one night was “Prawn, Scallop and Monkfish Brochette. I had two small prawns, one very small piece of monkfish and a bit of scallop about half the size of a broad bean! There was more red/green/yellow pepper than anything else! 3 – My desert one evening was “Citrus & Coconut Tart”. What came up was like a cheap mousse which tasted of neither citrus nor coconut, that sat on a very thin layer of sponge cake. A table-mate agreed with me about the lack of taste. Solo travellers had a large table set side so we ate together every night at the same table. The main waiter was at times brusque and sarcastic. He did the rounds of the table asking if the food was okay but ignored any negative comments. A table-mate replied one night that her steak was tough – no response! The assistant waiter on the other hand was super – smiling, friendly and helpful. I did have a very pleasant steak one night and also enjoyed a hot souffle for desert one evening. Entertainment. There was a show-team who put on five productions over the seven nights. They were a young team, very enthusiastic but I think struggled with the rather ambitious productions. They seemed to be all-rounders and so not exceptionally good at either song or dance. There was also a set of “trained actor hosts”, who put on a 30 minute play and acted in an 'audience participation' murder-mystery. Both these relied on much double-entendre. There were two main guest acts – Braxi, a husband & wife classical-crossover duo and Dave Kristian, a comedian. Braxi were very enjoyable but I don't really do comedians so didn't attend either of his shows. There was also a number of musicians performing around the ship – saxophonist, pianist/vocalist, guitarist, trio and party band. They were all of a reasonable standard but often over-amplified – especially in the Live Room, a venue I had to leave on a couple of occasions as I just could not stand the noise level. The Cruise Director shared his daily TV broadcast with the Asst CD. I feel they thought they were Ant & Dec... To me, they both had rather irritating voices. Again, much use was made of double-entendre. An example of this is the CD, when making an announcement mentioned he had an early rise the next morning and qualified it by saying - “and that's not a euphemism”. I really am not a prude but felt this kind of thing not appropriate for a CD. All the entertainment team are contracted by Peel Productions – including the CD, so maybe that is why he felt the need to try and be a comic. Ports of Call. George Town, Grand Cayman. I tendered ashore here for a walk around. It is a typical Caribbean Cruise port, with a lot of shopping opportunities! The town absorbed the 14000+ cruise pax well. Obviously there were plenty of excursions available to beaches and attractions. Havana. This was the reason I booked this cruise and it did not disappoint. We were docked right on the edge of the old town, affording plenty of opportunity for independent exploration of the city. This is what I did – on foot – for a day and a half. Plenty of tours on offer and also a HOHO bus. I loved this place. Many of the grand buildings are currently undergoing renovation and if you are not prepared for it, going 'off the beaten track' could be shocking, showing real poverty and squalor. Walking around the back-streets felt really safe and the locals were friendly and interested in you. I felt quite humbled after my visit – the local population here have very little but seem so happy. Cozumel, Mexico. Again, a typical Caribbean Cruise port. If the town of San Miguel de Cozumel ever had any character, it is either now long gone or well hidden. Plenty of beaches on hand and a few tours – the pick of which were to the Mayan ruins on the mainland, a ferry-ride away. 'Destination Services' on the ship should really be named 'Excursion Sales Team' as they gave no information for independent travellers in their “Port Showcase” presentation. A very small amount of basic information was given on the very basic Port Maps available at the desk. General. The Captain was a bit too laid-back and informal for my tastes but did a good job communicating weather and itinerary issues etc. A lot of the crew were friendly and smiley but Bar staff seemed poorly trained and never knew who they should be serving next. In conclusion. In my view and based on this cruise, Marella Cruises are very much a budget outfit and should be looked at as a 'fun, boozy cruise'. It is likely to be your cup of tea if you would prefer Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway and Celebrity Juice to Strictly Come Dancing and Have I Got News for You. That's not me being a snob – we all like different things in life and that is absolutely fine. The All-Inclusive offered on all Marella's new ships will mean good value if you like quite a few drinks across the day. Whilst they advertise that the standard AI package includes branded drinks, you have to ask for them by name otherwise they will use the cheap (weak and tasteless) house brands such as Kamel.... Marella Cruises are probably best booked if you can get a late and very cheap deal imho. Read Less

We chose this particular cruise mainly because of the itinerary, and the fact this ship was an ex royal Caribbean ship that had supposedly been totally refurbished! we have cruised on numerous occasions with P&O We flew out on the dreamliner, Embarkation and disembarkation went well along with all ports where we visited some tenders but all very well organised The ship is advertised as totally refurbished ...it is not! it is ok but not luxurious it is run down in places and in need of a re paint and varnish with many of the carpets looking gruby and worn especially in the buffet restaurant, The cabin was ok we had a deluxe balcony plenty of storage space but a bit 1970s decor and tired nice comfy bed but you were not able to turn air con off if you wanted you had to call maintenance to get it disconnected!, Tea and coffee facility a fridge and a safe bathroom ok but no shampoos ect You are not able to book a time for the restaurant and will have to queue, you are taken too a different table each night and served by different waiters so its very hard to build up any rap-pour with them Our first weeks food was absolutely awful especially the dress to impress night when I had the toughest piece of steak I have ever had! there were many passengers complaining and sending food back, perhaps the ship could also have made a bit more effort like some of its passengers to impress!! Im all for a more relaxed approach to dress codes but still feel at dinner time and in bar 11 you should at least make the effort to put on a pair of trousers and a collared shirt, this was followed by poor quality luke warm food served especially in the islands restaurant that we renamed Watford gap as you really felt you were in a service station rather than on a cruise ship poor tepid food that was mobbed at breakfast time, the second week showed a dramatic improvement in the restaurants with watford gap still lagging behind! I think the entertainment is very tough for a cruise ship to get right as we all have different tastes, I personally found the live room ok early on with the guitarist and pianist providing some nice pre dinner music but it never really picked up after that and became tiresome and dreary other than that I found the entertainment team very red coat style! it was a bit like going to a northern working mans club Blackpool style! so if thats your cup of tea then you will probably like it I found all the staff to be pleasant and polite but would agree with a past comment that they obviously have not had the correct support and training from the company they work for, restaurant staff should at least know that if a passenger orders a glass of Merlot they should not be asking you if that is red or white! The captain is a genuine person that always made himself available to you, I genuinely think that his main purpose was to give all of his passengers a pleasurable cruise, but really lowers the tone with his Bobby Dazzlers!! giving you a Hi Di Hi morning all campers holiday camp image We found the ports of call all of interest and enjoyed seeing all of the different cultures some of these ports are under developed and poor but thats why you do a cruise isnt it to experience everything and not just the glamour! the tours we did do were very well organised but did hear some horror stories from other passengers so probably a bit hit and miss So would I go on this ship again...No Would I recommend it to anyone...depends what you are after if you like a holiday camp style feeling then you may like it But for me its probably back to P&O Read Less

Review Marella Discovery 2 Cuban Fusion 22 January 2018 This was our forth Thomson (Dream*3) Marella cruise, our least favourite but still a good cruise. Rated a 4 instead of five is related to entertainment. About 1800 passengers mostly from the UK, 100 from Canada. Different flavour from US origin ships, we enjoy it and find the itineraries somewhat different. We booked and flew with Sunwing from Toronto on a 737 which was a bit cramped but adequate for a 4 hour flight. Be sure to take a pen to fill in the Jamaican immigrations forms. The transfer from the airport to the ship and the boarding process was very well organized, ditto for the return. This cruise was “all inclusive”. We being 100% and 95% non drinkers, were a bit nervous but needlessly. Never noticed any problems, no lineups for drinks etc. We were not the only non drinkers on board. The ship is quite nice, all crew, waiters, etc excellent. They all obviously make efforts to keep the ship clean and enjoyable for your stay. There was some sickness aboard, don’t know how this can be avoided, once you have payed your fare most will be going, coughing or not. Our suggestion is to always use the hand sanitizers and wash your hands more frequently than usual. Shame on the gent that was finger feeding himself on the cheese counter, should have slapped his hand. There were two main formal eating areas with similar names. 47 on deck 4 has a traditional menu (fish, meat, chicken etc), Gallery 47 on deck 5 is Italian themed with an alternating A & B menu. Both were excellent, we tended to look over the menus mid afternoon to make a choice. We had breakfast and lunch in ISLANDS on deck 9 which is buffet style, lots of choice. We enjoy sharing a table for the evening meal, which we did every night, thanks folks. There are plenty of tables for two or four therefore sharing is not quite as easy on this ship but still possible, you have to ask to share. Entertainment in the Broadway Show Lounge was not as good as we have seen on other Thomson cruises, not spectacular and lacked modern recognizable music. It is the content, we have seen quite a few of the entertainment staff before and know that they are capable. On our previous Thomson/TUI cruises entertainment was spectacular, we rated it the best of any cruise. Entertainment on this cruise was a bit of a let down and the reason for a 4 star instead of 5. Very pleased that Braxi Music (Brandy and Max) plus Daniella were onboard. Their powerful performances were very enjoyable. The comedian Dave Kristian entertained us well for two shows. The piano vocalist (Guy Stoker) in “Live Room” was quite good and later he performed as “Elton Guy”. In our opinion the “Elton Guy” show should have been moved to ‘Venue” which could have accommodated the overflow crowd. The cruise featured an on board Bubbleologist (Graham Maxwell). It was a quirky, interesting show, certainly one of the most unusual that we have seen. Did not do any ship excursions as we did the same cruise two years ago. Only tendered in the Caymen Islands. In all the ports we just got off the ship and walked around. We find Havana very interesting both culturally and architecturally, great photo opportunities. In Havana we rented an old car (52 Chev) for a tour. Felt quite safe walking around, had a coffee bought some churritos. Churritos, are local delicacy, made on the street, try um. The ship literally docks right beside the sidewalk in Old Havana. We did consider the ship based bike tour of Havana but declined as the weather forecast was not good and apparently the tours go regardless of the weather. The ship is quite nice and spacious, never had much of a problem with seating lineups etc. If you need a deck lounge in the perfect sunny spot you need to stake your claim early. We were always able to find a lounge chair in the shade on at sea days. The Broadway Show Lounge can fill up, most shows are on twice, just pick your time and go early. We had an inside cabin (6089) which was quite nice and suited our needs. Clean and kept clean. Read Less

Booked just 5 days before start of Cruise, bit dubious over the size of ship as I prefer smaller more intimate ones and wary of the 'All Inclusive' standard of food and drink. However, glad I went ahead as I really enjoyed the whole experience. The ship is well kept and despite her age provides a comfortable and modern cruise experience. I had an outside single cabin on deck 3. Adequately appointed, comfortable, clean and serviced well twice daily. Good restaurant choices, buffet or waiter service. Used the waiter one most, open dining for all meals, good selection and overall good quality food. When busy service can be laboured, but hey your on holiday, relax and enjoy the food, take your time. Excellent choice of drinks available - don't be fooled into upgrading to the premium drinks package - if you cant get what you want then you really are very fussy. Waiters very efficient, helpful and attentive and generally plenty about so no long wait for a drink. Didn't experience the main shows - not really my scene - however, the entertainment in the bar areas was very, very good. Things to Avoid! Shore excursions very expensive, just disembark and use the local minibuses/taxis. Wi-Fi very expensive at £8 an hour. Overall, having done several cruises over the years with various lines, I would put this particular one as the very best yet. The crew - over 40 different nationalities - were the friendliest, attentive and efficient I have ever come across either on ships, hotels, resorts, etc. etc. A real pleasure. Read Less

We and another couple wanted a short winter break. This holiday surpassed our expectations and to be fair, we are not that easily pleased. We wanted to travel on a cruise ship which took a smaller number of passengers than some of the larger cruise lines. We paid extra for an outside cabin on level 6 and the size was ideal. It was very clean and spacious and our cabin steward Effendi was excellent. The level of cleanliness and sanitisation on board was welcomed as having suffered Noro Virus in the past, I certainly did not want to experience that again! All of the crew were helpful and friendly and seemed happy in their work. We ate in the Orion restaurant most of the time and were fortunate to have the same table and waiting staff each evening. We were so well looked after by Gus, Catherine, Aaron and Mr Leeroy Brown. The food was excellent with great choices to suit all dietary requirements and as a vegetarian it was pleasing to be offered tofu, stir fries and vegetarian curries instead of the traditional vegetable lasagne or mushroom stroganoff!! We booked a couple of the optional excursions, which were most enjoyable and extremely well organised with our transport on quayside at the allotted time. We paid for the all inclusive package which proved worthwhile as you only have to show your cabin card for each purchase. We did not see the need to upgrade to the Premium package unless you are particular about the brand of spirits you prefer to drink. The Cruise Director Taylor was a consummate profressional and it was hard to believe he had only been on the Dream a short while. His entertainment team were so talented and each evening the show seemed to surpass the one from the night before. From arrival at London Gatwick on our outward journey when we checked into a Marella Dream desk for our luggage labels with our cabin numbers on, to leaving the ship where we were directed by the lovely Lewis from the Hosting team to our transfer coach for the journey home, we have nothing but praise for the whole crew. This may not be high end cruising but it has made for a memorable week for the four of us. I would recommend it wholeheartedly. Read Less

You will be dssapointed due to the whole experience was dreadful. so bad we booked a flight home from Maderia after 2 days. The ship was being steam cleaned which suggest a medical problem. Restaurants at times were closed due to this cleaning. Service of food was done by staff as you were not allowed to make contact with the utensils. The ship is in a poor condition. The lifts were a nightmare, went past were you were and in time seemed to get to our spot. I can't use the stairs due to a medical condition. Due to my wife becoming so ill we made the decision to fly back to the UK from Madeira after 2nights. Some of the staff were very good, however our involvement with the medical team was a disaster, very difficult to understand what was said as they were from Serbia. Our involvement with them DID NOT RESOLVE my wife's health issue. the cost was over £2600. Again I would recommend you give careful thought before booking. Read Less

3 sisters and our sister in law wanted 7 days somewhere warmer than home. We were all on our first cruise so did not know what to expect! We had 2 cabins next to each other on level 5, they were larger than expected and spotless. Our first meal was in the Lido which was ideal after a long day travelling. We then had all our meals in the Orion which was very good, food superb,service friendly by well trained staff, wine glasses always refilled. We loved the Waterside bar in the evening, the trio was great and the atmosphere a little less hectic. We liked th quizzes ( but was amazed at the presenter of the pop one who referred to CARL Simon twice, not Carly, she could have read the questions as she obviously had not. The bingo was great and not too long, I had not played since I was a child! All in all a memorable and great week, we will be back! Very disappointed with Agadir souks trip, far too long in first souk and not longer in the larger one, also being walked through lots of vegetables, which were great but no use to us! The touristy things we were walked past on the way to the bus. There was little time to buy let alone to barter. Read Less

We had been on this ship 2 or maybe 3 yrs ago and we were really looking forward to this trip as we had such a good cruise last time. Unfortunately we were soon to notice the change on the second day. We went to the Lido for a buffet breakfast and as I have had this situation once before on another ship we were made to be served by glove wearing staff and had to try to make them give us what we wanted. I did not get across what I needed and we were not allowed to point so I had to report to Leroy Brown about the service on more than one occasion during the week. Later that day I had a bad feeling of nausea and in after a couple of hrs I was vomiting. As we had to report any sickness my husband called to let reception know. A pleasant man names Dragon came to our cabin with an injection for the sickness and 2 Imodium pills but I had not got the runs so I did not take them. He then told us that we would have to be quarantined for 24 hrs. Room service sent our food. My husband was okay as he could eat as he wanted but I had to have quarantine food which consisted of poached chicken and veg. If I am never to speak again it had to be seen to believe. It looked liked rubber and the water poured out when squeezed it was UNEDIBLE as was all the rest of my food.We were let out at 3pm on the third day.We had a lovely meal at the Mistral restaurant which we paid for. My husband had a few tummy rumbles but managed to keep smiling. We ad a bit more bother with the service in the Lido so we stuck with the Orion, whose food was to say the most. We had to put up with all of this on top of having no luggage for all but 9 hrs of our holiday. That was not as far as I know not anything that Thomson did wrong but as it is ongoing it would be unfair to go into that. All I will say that I will never go on another Marella cruise unless they can guarantee a bug free holiday. Just as an ending clip all the hot tubs Sauna and other pools were covered and out of action it was a complete disgrace the ship should have been closed for business. Read Less
