Marella Discovery 2 overview

Marella Discovery 2 is the sister ship to Marella Discovery – and this is why their names are so similar. Having two ships means you’re able to pair a wider choice of itineraries with the exciting features offered by this larger, more contemporary style of vessel. These include an outdoor cinema, a rock climbing wall, a minigolf course, an indoor pool and a glossy atrium. Not to mention the range of bars, excellent dining scene and night-time shows enhanced by up-to-the-minute technology. Just like Marella Discovery, Marella Discovery 2 is All Inclusive as standard. So, drinks, including prosecco and cider, meals in a selection of restaurants and most onboard activities are included in the cruise price. Flights and tips are both part of the package, too.

Just back from our first Marella Cruise. We sailed on the Discovery 2 on their Cosmopolitan Classics cruise around the Mediterranean. We were incredibly lucky to have fabulous weather for 90% if the journey with just one abandoned port of Villefranche. We did sail through 63 mile per hour gusts that night leading to the most uncomfortable cruise experience I’ve ever had! Regarding the cruise. It goes without saying the staff were truly fabulous and did everything they could to make the experience a good one. I couldn’t fault their professionalism and courtesy. A real credit to Marella! There were, however, some aspects of the cruise that caused frustration. As an older ship, there seemed to be a shortage of space in the evenings and our party of 6 struggled to find seats bar/entertainment areas. In fact, my cabin neighbour told me they ate in the buffet to give themselves enough time to find a seat in the lounge areas. We dined in the main dining room and the complementary Italian restaurant Gallery 47. I felt, again, this was something Marella needed to work on: the menu was relatively limited in comparison to other cruise lines we’ve travelled with and was clearly aimed at the British clientele - again, nothing to complain about, just nothing to shout about either. The buffet and snack areas were in line with previous cruise experiences and were sufficient for a quick bite when needed. We were very pleased with our junior suite accommodation and had more space than with any other cruise line. This was a real bonus and the toiletries were a nice touch. The swimming pools (one indoor and one outdoor) were adequate although not heated so ruled out one of my favourite cruise activities. The deck areas were spacious but again, free seating was an issue and I do wish guests didn’t reserve sun beds with towels and sit on chairs with feet on another! Overall, our experience was a good one. I did miss the international feel of other cruise lines and wouldn’t necessarily choose Marella in the future, but just for that reason.

chilled and relaxing by Penfoldsmith

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group

We were a group of 4 couples who have cruised together before. On first sight the MD2 looked out of place in Palma port next to the giant super cruises ships in the docks. Any, Oh dear me thoughts that I may have had dissapeared as soon as we got on board. The crew were super polite, super efficiant and it was so nice to see so many different nationalities represented. The whole trip was very relaxed, the food was 5 star and the drinks package was well worth the investment. I would not hesitate to book another cruise aboard the MD2
