Marella Discovery ReviewsView Cruise Deals
It's a little dated and in need of a refurb but that is going to be done in ovember apparently. Had a relaxing cruise and enjoyed it thoroughly.
Very friendly crew and food and drink were as good as you would exspect excursions were well organised and would recommend travelling with Merrella cruises
The 7 day cruise was fine. There were issues with the journey from Birmingham airport, a lack of clear information meant that we arrived to find that we needed a PCR test and by following all the information I was given, we hadn’t had one. It was the most stressful time of my life and we weren’t the only ones in this situation. The Tui staff suggested that we take a taxi to the bullring todo a hour turnaround PCR, of course it was closed at 7.30 on Easter Sunday. When we got back to the check in desk, it was suggested that we go to to Tenerife or go home and they would call us on Tuesday to arrange another holiday. This holiday was to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary last month and it hadn’t been exactly been easy to take 2 weeks off work! To get on the flight we had to pay and take for a 4hour PCR test and book a hotel to stay at in Barbados for the night to fulfil Tuis stipulations! Once in Barbados, we were transferred to the ship with no issues. We were unable to make contact with the Tui rep when we’re at the coconut court hotel as we could not download the Tui app as we had booked the trip through you and not disrespect with Tui. We spoke to many other guest who had spent a lot less on their trip thAn we did
Altogether a very good trip thoroughly enjoyed by us both. However I am expecting a rebate of £120 for the upgrade to premier service which came as standard for the executive suit which we had.
Crew the best we encountered. Food choices in Islands onboard cafe limited. Would book again with Marella
Great value for money. Extremely clean around all parts of the ship. Good selection of eating places although speciality dining on the pricey side considering the good food in 47. The Italian in 47 was excellent. Entertainment varied but generally good. Drinks onboard generally good but quality in pool bars not as good as Atrium and Bar Eleven. Bar and Restaurant staff very attentive and service excellent. One waiter Austin definitely went the extra mile. Overall great value for money in the sun with a good itinerary. Would recommend without question. We found our own excursions in port at a reasonable cost.
staff very friendly and professional ship was very clean food was of very high standard especially in the Italian restaurant a special thank you to Austin brilliant service from him and is team will defiantly recommend this ship a wonderful experience cant wait to go again
The ship was fine, had issues with the reception desk as our cabins were on different desks . As we were on the same booking we couldn’t understand this, my sister who has health issues felt very vulnerable being on a different side and deck. They said they would try and move one of us but unfortunately we’re unable to, even though the ship was only half full. Our other issue was with the drinks, even though we were all inclusive a lot of things weren’t included. All the cocktails were watered down, no taste of alcohol in them, the same with the vodka, the coke and ice tasted terrible. The only water served was from the tap which was undrinkable, if we had known how bad it would be we would have upgraded to premium, although for what Marcella charge for their cruises I don’t feel that we should have to do this.
Staff were all very friendly, helpful and capable. They helped to make a memorable holiday.
I have been on many marella cruises. Unfortunately this did not come up to the,standard of previous ones There were many cut backs and for the amount of money was not acceptable
