  3. Marella Discovery 2
Having previously sailed on Explorer 1 in December and really enjoyed the ship and food we thought we would try Discovery 2. Embarkation from Montego Bay was a disaster, after a 10 hour flight we were left in a small holding area for over an hour because Tui did not have enough coaches for us. It was awful, there was no air con and people were fainting !! After eventually getting on a coach, they make a point that everyone must wear seat belts due to safety but the driver was talking for the whole journey on his mobile phone!! Our balcony cabin was ok, plenty of storage the shower had a mind of its own and kept going hot and cold, the air con didn't work so we complained, they fixed it but then we couldn't turn it off !! The food was awful!! Buffet food was cold, restaurant food was served to us cold although the plates were very hot.The only place you could get a hot meal was Surf and Turf but that cost over £60 per meal for two. The drinks were good and service good, the staff worked hard. The evening entertainment show cast team were excellent and if it hadn't been for them I would have given this review a 1 star not a 2. Discovery 2 is not a ship I will be returning on.

Very Disappointed
