This was our 16th cruise with Thomsom/TUI/Marella and we have been left absolutely disgusted with many aspects of the cruise from start to finish. Our overall summary is that the standard of the Marella cruise has plummeted dramatically in terms of service, cleanliness, food, entertainment and friendliness of staff. We do not intend to travel on a Marella cruise again. The problems we ...

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. Squid & ...

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 ...

Me and my husband have just got back from a week's cruise on Marcella Discovery, the Magic of Spain cruise. It was a disaster from start to finish! We flew from Doncaster Sheffield airport and due to a power cut we had to stand in the check in queue for 5 hours. The staff were totally unprepared for this incident and updates were poor. Not a good start! When we arrived on the ship we were ...

It he itinerary had Beeb changed about a week before departure and we were not notified.we would finish in Oman. Then on our penultimate day travel by free bus to Dubai. But due to medical emergencies the ship diverted , delaying our arrival in Oman by 24 hours. So we didn't get to see Dubai. Our ...

We had been on the Marella Discovery before and even cruises on the sister ship Marella Discovery 2 last year. We decided to go on another cruise with my Parents and my Brother and Siater-in-law for my Parents 50th golden wedding anniversary. It started out ok with the only gripe was we were not able to book the Surf and Turf speciality restaurant on the day we embarked (11/10/2019), as we missed ...

Sadly where do I start . We had booked a deluxe cabin and to our shock we saw no deluxe at all, the windows were that bad we could hardly see out of them. The shower was that small with a shower curtain,not deluxe to me. No toiletries apart from a small soap and shower cream canister. we enjoy going to the restaurant , only the first night was the best after that we were rushed every night ...
