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
Surf & Turf 10/10
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 ...
Booked this cruise for my partners special birthday, We both didn't know what to expect but we were extremely impressed with what we found, Staff could not do enough to please from the cleaners to the restaurant staff to the bar staff special mention has to be given to SHEENA, ANGELO, JIMIT, DAVID, CLARY (BABY GUINESS) JUDE AND NANDY but to name a few. Food was excellent were ever we ate from ...
Plenty of cruises behind us now to be able to give a balanced appraisal, and I would suggest that this review is read alongside my review of the Explorer 2 as there were only 9 days between both cruises. You wouldn’t think that these cruises were provided by the same company.
There was a fantastic friendly atmosphere throughout the ship, with the crew going out of their way to ensure that ...
we have been on about 14 cruises with Thompson/Marella(and other cruises) so id like to think what I write is a fair opinion.
Getting on/off ship, bit of a wait to get on due to proof of Covid vaccination's/antigen result etc. but ok.
Balcony cabin, immaculate as usual and always cleaned and made up .
Food, good quality but a noticeable lack of choice from previous ...
Booked a Med cruise in 2021 for July 2022 and was really disappointed after experiencing a fabulous time on a Marella Far East cruise just before the first lockdown. It was clearly apparent that they were trying to claw back lockdown losses. We only ate at the Islands Buffet Restaurant, as we had eaten at the speciality restaurants previously, so just went buffet. On a 2 week cruise, we did not ...
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 ...
