Marella Explorer

February 2020 - Canarian Flavours Cruise on Marella Explorer

Great First Marella Cruise

This was our first Marella/TUI cruise and holiday which far exceeded our expectations. The all inclusive price removes the issue of giving gratuities and a large bill at the end of the cruise. The staff and crew were stunning and made the difference between a good and a great cruise.

Celebrity Silhouette

November 2016 - 15 Night Mediterranean Passage (Rome To Ft. Lauderdale) Cruise on Celebrity Silhouette

A great cruise rather spoiled by rather aggressive on board up selling

A great cruise on a sensible size ship with a fantastic staff and crew. The entertainment ranged from very good to average, with Tenors of Rock and  the Simon and Garfunkel tribute duo being outstanding. We found the food to be good if not 5 star in both the main dining room and the Ocean View Café. Regrettably on occasion is was delivered only warm and not hot. The only down side was the almost continuous and very annoying up selling of Celebrity very expensive excursions, products, services and dining & beverage packages. This is now getting out of hand and is impinging on the enjoyment of cruising. I did notice that throughout the cruise almost 24/7

there was smoke emitted from the funnel something I have never seen before
