Wouldn't Rush To Book Another Marella Cruise

First Time Cruiser

Age 50s

This was our first cruise, so not sure what to expect, and obviously nothing to compare with, so these are just our personal thoughts . . . . . Our Junior Suite (8078) was really lovely - see below review Islands Buffet we didn't like at all and tried to avoid at all costs! Never seemed to be enough seats at breakfast, and if you were lucky enough to find two - you had to take it in turns to ...

Having read all the previous contributors and reviews for this ship, i'm amazed at some of the remarks made. Get a grip! this is not P & O, Cunnard or even Celebrity. It's the now Marella providing cruises at good value prices. We have cruised many times previously but when we checked out the 'Canarian Flavours' itinerary along with its all inclusive plus gratuities ticket. We decided to ...

Age 70s

We normally cruise with Fred Olsen and have also been with P&O, so thought we would try a different cruise line. As the Discovery2 is new to Thomson and the iternary was what we were looking for. We sailed from Santa Cruz perfect for us as we live in Tenerife. The ship is large but not too large we prefer the small to mid size ships. Embarkation was painless as we arrived early before all the ...

We have travelled on Thompson, then Tui, now Marcella cruises many times.We have loved every one, even a bargain last minute on the Island escape. We booked on the Discovery 2 wondering if we would feel comfortable on a much bigger ship. Took us a few days but yes . we really did enjoy it. Having said that , the staff although good , are not a patch on the very friendly, very helpful and ...

Rather soulless compared to smaller Thomson (Marella) ships

Just back from a week on D2. Have been cruising with Thomson for nearly 20 years, so have been on many of their older and smaller ships. Will give what I hope is my balanced view.. was very excited about going on this bigger and newer ship and first time having a balcony, but left feeling a little underwhelmed. The ship has a good layout- the main restaurant 47 is light and bright and has ...

Change of itinerary was a Disappointment

In the past we have had 12 previous cruise experiences and the 3 with Thomsons before this cruise. And it was 10 years since our last cruise. .Change of Literary was a Disappointment and the reason being the re-branding of the ship from Tui to Merella was not in my option a valid reason to change our destinations. Just a warning after contacting TUI before the cruise they informed us that a ...

A pleasant way to see lots of different places in a short period of time

First Time Cruiser

Age 50s

The embarkation process was smooth and well organised with our bags labelled with our cabin number at the airport check-in. After collecting the cases at the airport we didn't see them again until later that day outside our room (although not at the same time). The process of registering for a passenger card, checks with the nurse and photographs sounded laborious when reading the briefing card ...

Wanted some sun and we got it. The itinerary included places we have not been before. The staff in the main dining room were very good with their service and memory of requirements. The entertainment was ok but not exceptional, the one exception being the two main dancers who were very talented and should have ha a show of their own. Again as on most cruises the beds were taken with the towels ...

Embarkation was chaos. Queued for two hours in the sun, due to authorities who had one scanner and one lady checker. Need more scanning machines. Bar service on board needs improving, waited 25 minutes for drinks in the Atrium Bar, and the same in other bars. Phillopenos very friendly and efficient service on pools decks good, they know the job inside out, but Eastern Europeans never have a ...
