  3. Marella Dream
Good spacious cabin, bathroom outdated -awkward to use shower and toilet. No balconies on this boat. Very crowded around pools but there were other desk areas. Food good choice at buffets but a lot was pretty tasteless and could be stale - felt like a bit of a feeding frenzy sometimes, other dining areas less crowded and food quality a bit better but still very average. Entertainment second rate. Shore excursions much more expensive than picking up trips with local operators. Wifi very expensive on board but good at cafes when we docked each day. Staff were fine and provided useful town maps for each island visited. Major upgrade of boat still left it with limited facilities. Lot of very overweight passengers many did not leave boat when in ports. Good facilities and staff for disabled people and their families. Drinks packages were expensive but house wines were reasonably priced and quality.

Pretty basic experience on board but having days in different islands was great
