Review summary

3rd marella cruise now, we like what we get for the money. Overall a wonderful holiday. Saw some beautiful places, met some wonderful people. Ship was well laid out for us. Only one sea day each week, when the synbeds were busy. Marella staff though were enforcing the time rule, no return after 45 mins, they would bag up belongings. Made it fairer for everyone.
