We have cruised many times with Marella, but this repositioning transatlantic cruise was awful!. The cruise was an ambition for my wife and I, but right from the start, the whole experience was a farce, 1st we got an email saying our flight had been changed - it hadn't. When we arrived at the cruise terminal in Palma, we had to queue for nearly 2hrs to get on the ship, the staff offered us ...

We have been on the Discovery 2 previously before the pandemic, and several Marella cruises both before and since the pandemic, the most recent before Discovery 2 being the Marella Explorer within 2 months before this cruise on the Discovery 2. Usual TUI Delay, they never seem to arrive on time, this time about an hour late thankfully and uneventful arrival to the ship, the usual packed coaches ...

I'm not a snob, far from it, but some of the clientele need to take a long hard look at themselves. Our 6th cruise - RCCL x 4, MSC x 1 Cabin - Outside 7/10 Cabin Stewards 9/10 Main dining room 4/10 Sushi 10/10 Surf & Turf 10/10 Tapas 8/10 Islands 9/10 Bar 11 9/10 - smoked drinks fantastic, staff doing their best but still waiting for them to get to you.

A third cruise with Marella, but probably our last. We enjoyed all of the ports of call, Split, Trieste, Ancona, San Marino and Zadar. Usual procedure to board the ship, probably slightly longer due to covid and brexit but once on board were greeted by friendly ,helpful crew. Cabin, outside on deck 9 was beautifully clean and the crew who serviced it twice a day were friendly, cheerful and a ...

Chose this Adriatic cruise as tge highlight was Venice which was subsequently cancelled as could not dock there - we were told this after forking out thousands of pounds) You could choose to travel for 6 hours plus to get there in a day but we chose not to. Eve entertainment was okay but all other was appalling. Dirty plastic glasses everywhere, food just okay. Service was abmissal and covid ...

We are criusers and mid sixties, and since covid we cruised twice with explorer 2 and once with discovery but this last one was quite poor. Bread was stale on the great musical afternoon tea, at breakfast and basically all round. The tapas gave us a dippy tummy, the Drinks were seriously watered down and cocktails tasted nothing like the real thing Not worthed paying for the ...

Excellent all round Cruise experience apart from the above issue which I really would like to sort out quickly. However I don't have a contact number for the Smiths and unfortunately they don't have one for us. Any help from people who have also experienced this would be appreciated. In addition TUI can take up to 14 days plus to respond which doesn't help when your swimming in used clothing ...

We chose this cruise lines because prior to Covid in 2019 we went to the Western Caribbean and had an excellent time and expected the same standard this time round - not so - very poor in every aspect - definitely dumbing down.. Shows were poor; Food was adequate - nothing special'/ drinks were poor beyond words - watered down - trips were too expensive and everything had been paired back ...
