We have never cruised before, and were a bit apprehensive This was an amazing holiday, top class entertainment, food, accom and service - can't wait to return. Some of the shows wouldn't have been out of place in the West End Choice of restaurants was great, and the gym facilities were adequate Destinations were ideal and we had enough time in each to get to relax, soak up the atmosphere before returning to ship. We just wish we had discovered cruising years ago- the perfect balance of relaxation, activity, good food and brilliant service- Tui should be very proud of Marella Discovery 2, its staff and crew- there was a sense of pride in the way everyone went about their daily tasks only recommendation- more effort into the open air cinema programme- Hook, Jumanji, BIG and Ghostbusters but only approx. 10 children on board And charging for wifi seemed a bit cheeky Read Less

I got on the discovery 2 at Corfu and got of there as well. I was on the ship for a week and the destinations are lovely Santorini and Rhodes have to be my favourite. The cruise is really good the activity's for kids are a climbing wall a mini golf 9 holes 2 swimming pools one inside and one outside also there is a games room called hideout for the children to chill out and play on the Xbox and the football table. The entertainment is fantastic with 4 different venues to choose from and they have a casino. the bars were clean and sold a verity of alcohols from shots to beer to cocktails. the crew are so friendly saying hello and always ready to help really good custom. The sail away party was absolutely fantastic with live performances from DJ Tomas and a band that I cant remember there name and a flag parade to see were parts of the crew come from. definitely arrange with TUI they are stars amazing job Read Less

This was our first cruise, so we had nothing to compare against, but the 4 people in our party all thought the cruise on Merrella Discovery 2 was excellent. The ship and the cabins were spotlessly clean, the crew are permanently going around cleaning. The majority of the crew were very pleasant and helpful, you will always get one or two who aren't, but they were very much the minority. The quality of the food was exceptional and there would be something for the fussiest of eaters. We dined mainly in the Island restaurant which is self service, but the food here is superb. I can't agree with a previous reviewer who said the food was poor. We also dined in the Gallery restaurant and 47 Gallery restaurant both of which is waiter service, again the food was excellent. We did have to queue and wait for a table in both of these restaurants, but it wasn't a problem. We asked for a table for 4 and was given a bleeper device for the restaurant staff to contact you when a table was available. the longest we waited was approx. 25 minutes. There are two more restuarants on board for which you have to pay a supplement to eat in. We didn't bother as we felt there was no need. Maybe if we had been on a two week cruise we may have done. .We had a superior balcony cabin, which again was excellent. It was a good size and never felt cramped. If there was a small criticism, it would be the shower cubicle could have don with being a touch bigger.Having said that, I am a more mature person of age and never had a problem having a shower. We all thought the entertainment was very good on board ship, especially the live shows. Yes they aren't West End standard, but very very enjoyable, and the entertainers work very hard. We went all inclusive, and felt we had our monies worth, again TUI do try to charge extra for certain things but if you are careful about what you asking for you can do the whole cruise without incurring additional charges. As for the morning announcements from the Captain from the bridge, we all thought this was a good way to start the day. Captain Chris was very informative telling you about the place we were moored and the weather for the day. We had no problem with this. All in all as a first cruise we had a fantastic time, and will certainly cruise on this ship again. Read Less

Best cruise I’ve been on. Top marks for an amazing experience. Facilities excellent, staff were incredibly and made this so perfect in every way. Cabin service was worthy of 5 stars, thanks to Eli and Ella who were wonderful. A big thanks to Islands restaurant where the 2 most handsome men Raphael and Stefan looked after me. These guys were terrific. This ship was super clean thanks to all the hard working staff. I would highly recommend this holiday to everyone. Whatever your age or ability there is something to suit all. Remember to try afternoon tea from 3 to 5 in Islands, I’ve honestly never had such a delicious selection. The only problem is the food is too tempting but you can walk the track on deck 10 to exercise after. Or visit the gym to burn off those extra calories. This is a truly fantastic holiday and I wish I could have stayed another week. Read Less
