Great Mediterranean cruise by mricho14

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Marella Explorer 2 / Destination: Europe

Really enjoyed this cruise and would recommend Marella to anyone, so much so that we have just booked another week in October with our friends. If you like speciality coffees, better cocktails and cans of coke/Diet Coke rather than the standard stuff out the pumps then go for the premium upgrade @ £50 per person, per week (£7.10 per day) you also get a 1.5 litre bottle of water in your room per day too. Don't worry if you forget things, they sell some items on board including toothpaste, paracetamol etc and at reasonable prices.

A great return to cruising by mon2dar

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Marella Explorer 2

The cruise went too fast! Some of this was due to a lot of sea days, 6 out of a 12 day cruise making it go quiker All in all it was a good getting out of lockdown cruise and we saw places we have never been to.

Excellent holiday by Lel52

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Marella Explorer 2 / Destination: Europe

AS this was our first cruise we were a little apprehensive but we were blown away - the staff were amazing & couldn't do enugh for us. Th shows were of a very high standard as was the food - the only problem we had was remembering how to get from one area/deck to another lol

First time cruisers but won't be last by Lel52

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Marella Explorer 2 / Destination: Europe

Being first timers we were a bit apprehensive - especially as we'd booked to go to the Caribbean on Explorer 2 next February - but really pleased with cruise & looking forward to the next one

Quiet cruise reduced guest occupancy by Margaretandandy

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Marella Explorer 2

Cruise ship was a little basic than our normal. But they do what they can with older ship- if it’s the right ports and price you can’t go wrong. There were 400 passengers on our cruise. Barcelona/palms/Cartagena, Valencia Gibraltar. All inclusive with flights from Birmingham junior suite for under £800 each including parking and insurance total . Can’t go wrong

Such a wonderful cruise by GaynorD

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Marella Explorer 2

Obviously apprehensive as this was our first cruise since the pandemic, but I have to say it was wonderful. The ship was only at 30% occupancy, service was exelent, food yummy, entertainment brilliant. We was upgraded from ocean view to balcony. Fab ports and blessed with mostly good weather. I will definitely cruise with Tui again.

Bella Marella Weekender by neiltravels2

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Marella Explorer 2

This was my first Marella cruise but there were many seasoned Marella cruisers who are loyal to the line. It's a very British orientated experience on Marella but they seem to know their target market well. This cruise was at half capacity & it felt okay for space etc but it might feel a bit crowded once back to full capacity sailings. Explorer 2 feels contemporary following its 2019 refit & the staff couldn't be more friendly. If you want a traditional but relaxed cruise holiday at reasonable value for money, then this could be the ship for you.

Wonderful 2 weeks in the Caribbean by Michelle1299

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Marella Explorer 2

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.

Worst cruise we have had by sherrah

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Marella Explorer 2 / Destination: Caribbean

Worst cruise ever . To many complaints to write. I have never had 1 complaint about any other cruise . Would never go back to carribean. This ship completely lost the personal touch . Staff were rude . Food was very poor choice. Smell of damp in some areas was overpowering .

Christmas at sea by worldsyouroyster

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Marella Explorer 2

Picked this cruise for destinations. Overall ship well maintained. I think most of the budget is spent on drink. My first Marella cruise. Most likely my last. It felt like Butlins at sea

Butlins at Sea by Kellino123

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Marella Explorer 2 / Destination: Europe

Very unhappy and ill on this cruise. Were not treated as Premium passengers despite paying the extra. Ate only Bread and cheese lunch and dinners- restaurants could not cater for special diets. Left one in tears after making special request as was so hungry. Bar staff rude and took the mickey!! Never again!!!!
