Great Itinerary - Well Maintained Ship Catering for Packaged Holiday Market

Why this Cruise? - Timing - We organised this trip to coincide with half term as one of our party is still of school age. The dates were correct for us and the relatively short haul flight to join the ship in Corfu ...

Good holiday but Marella need to up their game in some areas

Room and facilities I had an outside cabin on deck 2 - 2026 There is much more storage everywhere - the wardrobe is a much better use of space on Marella as you have the big waste of space on most P&O ships. ...

Happy We Discovered Discovery 2

We choose this cruise solely because of the itinerary. We didn't want to have to use ship excursions to enjoy ourselves and this really did fit the bill. We were able to do our own thing at every port and enjoyed ...
