Marella Dream Cruise Review by Aunty Bully
- Sail Date: March 2018
- Destination: Canary Islands
Flight was good, taxi waiting and check in went smoothly but gangway really steep. We cannot fault the crew who had to carry my husband up and down but this put us off disembarking in most ports. As usual all staff were lovely and our thanks go Lara from reception who managed to change our cabin on the third day, Amy, bar manager who reserved us VIP seats in the Broadway lounge. Also Clemente who assisted and brought us drinks and Leroy Brown who seemed to sort us in which ever restaurant we ate in.
It was a hassle going around the ship. Lifts were small and we sometimes waited 20 mins for a wheelchair space and door ramps were too steep for little me. But lovely fellow guests often helped. Especial thanks to Janet and John for their kindness and friendship.
Food was mostly good although there seem to have been some cut backs, Drinks were excellent with named brands. Even though we had to down grade our cabin both were comfortable and we slept well,
We enjoyed the show team and the comedian. Best we have seen.
I had a "Botox" hair conditioner and wash and blow dry that was expertly done for £42.
We only got off in Medeira and took a taxi to the main street, We had a drink in a bar and I left my husband there while I shopped. We also got off in Lanzarote and went along the prom,. Excursions were out because my husband cannot get on a coach.
Officers were friendly on this ship and often around as was the Captain.
Disembarkation was fine but after boarding in Tenerife we were told the windscreen was cracked and plane grounded. Taken to a lovely hotel but problems getting back to airport and grounded, then diverted so we ended up in Liverpool. Nightmare journey back on an old bus. We eventually rebelled and left at Manchester airport hotel.
