Review summary

Great staff, could not do enough for you and genuinely seemed happy with their work. Ship a bit dated but that just adds character and the size makes it more intermit and not overcrowded. Overall a great 1st time cruise experience. Would highly recommend Marcella cruises.

Spent day at the famous Boatyard Beach Club, $25 per for cruise passengers. Lovely clean beach, good bar and toilet facilities. Boat trip snorkeling above ship wreck and with turtles and rays included with entrance fee, along with return transport to dock - would highly recommend trip!

Port rundown and not welcoming, rained all day so stopped on ship. Feedback from fellow passengers not good, expensive trips and rip off prices for drinks etc.. Don't know why Tui add this to cruise route?
