  3. Marella Discovery 2
After watching the reviews from those on the Caribean trip we were a little apprehensive, however, we chose the Greek Island trip just a week and to put to rest anyone's doubt about Marella Discovery 2. we have to say disregard the minority negative comments, we've cruised with TUI/Thomson before and if you've been happy with them you'll be happy with Marella, you receive the same courtesy, politeness, and the main thing the smile from the staff, the food everywhere is lovely in 47 and 47deg. three-course ample plateful really tasty, we didn't try any of the other restaurants didn't feel the need but anyone who does why not. The drinks package is excellent, again I don't see why anyone needs to upgrade but that's a personal choice, I drink lager and normally I don't like Fosters but it was great as was The Corona, Budweiser, and The Peroni, but I found I had a liking for a Tequila Sunrise quite often not to mention The Jamesons nightcap, great, I am now in rehab..... The show in the theatre on an evening was very good a different theme every night and the entertainment staff, in general, deserve a mention for the organising and keeping us all informed, there's live music in most bars. Around the pool area, there are quizzes, live music etc. not for everyone so if not for you go one deck higher and you'll find quiet and an abundance of sunbeds and loads of spaces the ship was full and lack of sunbeds was not an issue, the trolly bar visits regularly to save walking a few feet, well stocked. Someone mentioned the noise from engines etc. we always book a low deck inside cabin and pay to chose where, we had 2745 tucked away and quiet, the only thing about an inside cabin is, if there are no lights on they are pitch black day and night so no window to see if it's dawn, not for everyone. There was a cool drinking water distribution point near the lifts on our floor so I presume they're on others so everyone filled there water bottles up there.There were little things on our cruise that cropped up but nothing to spoil it or even worth mentioning, we saw no one drunk, the majority over ate that includes us, met some lovely people. Bon Voyage.

Loved It.
