Picked cruise for the places it was visiting and price i.e. Caribbean then on to Europe. Unfortunately the cruise was cut short in Antigua due to coronaviras. We spent 11 days at sea due to this but wasn't bored had pleanty to do new people to meet and have a laugh with them. Could have been more sun beds but they were monitored if left unattended. Daily walks round the decks 5 times was a mile. ...

We have previously cruised with Marella and enjoyed great service and on board experiences. Celebration was a disappointment. She is an old tired ship showing her age in several areas from cosmetic finish to constant ship vibration and poor air conditioning. Our cabin was aft on deck three and suffered from ineffective air con, constant mechanical noise from a major piece of machinery and ...

I booked two weeks on the Marella Celebration last minute after our original plans fell through. I've cruised before, though never Marella and never on a ship as old or small as the Celebration and after reading some of the reviews here, and watching YouTube videos of noisy cabins, I was wondering if I'd made a dreadful mistake. Fortunately things were great and we had a wonderful time. Our ...

Have just returned from two weeks cruise in the Caribbean. TUI flights were excellent with free drinks, meals and in-flight entertainment. Transfer to ship was easy - straight from the plane. Didn't see our luggage until we got to our cabin. Cabins small but perfectly functional with plenty of hanging and drawer space, Kettle with tea/coffee etc. We were towards the bow of the ship and we ...

This is the second time on the Celebration and only our second cruise. We chose a similar itinerary as last year as we thoroughly enjoy the Trans Atlantic Crossing. We flew to Malaga from Birmingham to join the boat and the flight and embarkation went smoothly. The boat had been in port for a week prior to our cruise so there were no passengers disembarking. This makes embarkation so much ...

This cruise was part of a stay & cruise on Marella Celebration departing from Dubrovnik. This was our second cruise on the Celebration this year, the first was a repositioning cruise from the Caribbean in April, on that Cruise the meals in the Meridian Restaurant were terrible the worst we have ever encountered on a Marella (Thomson) cruise, and the most complaints and returned food we have ever ...

We have returned from our cruise around the end and we honestly could not fault the marella celebration in any way. Will start by saying the food in the speciality restaurants is far superior to the food in the main buffet and dining restaurant and couldn’t recommend the experiences enough so would definitely encourage people to book. The ship was immaculate and the cabins were also very nice. The ...
