Customer reviews for Marella Dream

My friend and I were on the Marella Dream sailing from Malaga on the 8th March 2020. We had a fantastic three days going ashore at Oporto, Lisbon and Cádiz then the Coronavirus set in preventing us going into Casablanca and Gibraltar. Fortunately Malaga let us dock 1 day early we were the last cruise ship allowed into port and we got home on our scheduled flight. I cannot praise Captain Steve and all the amazing crew enough for how they looked after us and kept us informed as they didn’t know what the future held for them.

Would like to let you know what a wonderful time we had on our first cruise. We set sail on 6th november 2019. It was everything and more totally amazing. Our cabin was 7178 Marjun looked after us for 7 days and he was amazing kind considerate and very caring. Secondly Putu looked after us every day totally spoiling us by being at our beck and call. Please can you pass our thanks on to them. Also all staff were amazing nothing was to much trouble. We hope to return again. Best wishes paula and garry edwards xxx

Just got back from the Ancient Affair cruise. We were a group of 16 and what a fabulous cruise experience this was. Six of the group had never cruised and they were very impressed with the Marella Dream ship. Every aspect of the cruise was excellent - and we were lucky with the November weather. We will be booking again - all of us I expect!
