As many of the regular Planet Cruise and Ideal World customers may know, I have been very lucky to have been on nearly thirty cruises, many of which have been 5 star.
However, I recently cruised with Marella for the first time and LOVED it! I would love to tell you why …
Firstly there were four of us wanting to book a cruise but on a budget as we are all in the process of moving house. Marella are extremely well priced and offer great value for money.
We booked the Marella Dream, which I believe is actually the most mature ship in the fleet! Whilst she didn't have some of the more up to date facilities of the newer ships, she was very well maintained, surprisingly spacious and had everything we needed. We upgraded to the Premium Drinks package for just an extra fifty pounds which was fabulous and off we sailed!
I can honestly say it was one of the best cruises we have ever done. The staff were great, food really good and the entertainment was outstanding. Great West End style shows, fabulous bands, great pianists and always something happening. Everyone was constantly having fun and the relaxed friendly atmosphere was fantastic. Also any of the extras like Specialty Dining were still very affordable.
To sum it up, if you want a great value cruise, with a British feel and a fun, fabulous atmosphere then give Marella a try. Also, don't forget that the whole fleet are becoming ALL INCLUSIVE (my favorite two words) from this upcoming May.
