Chilled-out days onboard are a must and where better to kick it off than at Oceans Spa and Beauty Salon for a tailor-made pampering session. The relaxation doesn’t have to end there, so why not spend the next few hours lounging by the pool, reading a book and topping up your tan. If you start getting a little restless, there’s plenty of sports facilities to keep you occupied, from a minigolf course, a climbing wall and even a fully-equipped gym so that you can get all those muscles working.

However, a holiday wouldn’t be a holiday without a souvenir, and the best place to pick up a little something for an excellent duty-free price is at the Broad Street Shops. If you’d prefer a more personalised reminder of the trip of a lifetime, book in a photo-shoot at the Pure Portrait Studio.

Customer reviews for Marella Discovery 2

Just back from a week's med cruise on this ship. First time on a smaller ship and loved it. Yes you feel a bit more sea movement but that is out weighed by the many pluses. Easy to find you're way around, food excellent, crew excellent, cleanliness excellent....... you will always find those who moan about everything so take these reviews with a pinch of salt if you read negative stuff and don't be put off by the few. Marella cruise offered excellent value for money, previously used P&O but we felt this cruise was better on many levels. The organisation getting from airport to ship etc was seamless making it hassle free. Only down side was flight out from Bristol had to divert to Gatwick on the way out due to a technical problem but things like that happen and it's out of their control and it was dealt with efficiently, re boarded a replacement plane at Gatwick and still made the ship in time. Heard others moaning they expected to be escorted like children through Gatwick, totally unrealistic given the situation, others moaned they didn't have enough time to spend their food vouchers given to them and then spent their food voucher on 3 boxes of quality street instead of proper food, some people are plainly stupid. Overall very impressed.

I went on the cruise on 19th October with 6 friends and we had an amazing time! The food was excellent, drinks, amazing, all beautifully served; cabins were clean and we were looked after exceptionally well; entertainment was of a high standard particularly the dance/singing group in the Broadway theatre. We loved joining the choir with Matthew Ibbotson; in all, a superb cruise. I must commend the following - Fernando and Arlind in 47 restaurant, table 112. Hari and Romy at breakfast, Presida, Alesoar and Umbara for cabin 2529, Natasha and Roshirlyn in gallery 47,and all the wine waiters on deck 9. (Sorry if I've spelt some names wrong!) I'd come again any time! Ann Martyn (Mrs)

The ship had excellent crew and relationship between passengers and crew was wonderful . The food and drink was in abundance so no one goes hungry in 24 hours brilliant and honestly this is the best ship I have been to of the three ships I used. I am booking to go on Marella Discovery 2 again next year October. Music entertainment however needs to make us all involved young and old aged like ABBA etc. 

Are you rebooking a cancelled cruise due to Covid-19?
