  3. Marella Discovery
We've travelled with various cruise companies and with Thomson 4 times (3 to the Caribbean). This was disappointing. In Some ports of call we were dumped in cargo areas whilst other ships had best docking spaces and although water taxis and taxis were available, when you've got mobility difficulties it makes it very difficult to get around. I see other cruise companies offering buggies to transport their less able passengers. I was ill for several days with a stomach bug and under medical team who were fantastic and really made me feel well cared for but I was constantly concerned about the cold or luke warm food in buffet as well as the dirty floors and loungers in the glasshouse pool area. great itinerary and check in and baggage straight from airport to cabin is a huge help but there's a lot of work to be done to improve the food quality and standards.

Stomach bug, mediocre food, dumped in some inaccessible ports
