We absolutely loved our first cruise and have nothing but praise for Marella Cruises.

There were a mix of ages with some passengers travelling in couples and some travelling with friends.

The relaxed atmosphere on the ship put us at ease, although there were opportunities for dressing in your finest outfits if you wanted to.

We were spoilt for choice with a range of restaurants and the food was good quality. There was a buffet too although we preferred the restaurants.

Evening entertainment was good too with a choice of shows, cinema, live music, discos and a casino.

Our top tip for anyone going on their first cruise it to pack a cabin case with a change of clothes for when you arrive on the ship. As it was our first cruise we didn’t realise you could arrive on the ship before your luggage and had to wait for a change of clothes. Luckily we had a lovely cold cocktail to cool us down while we waited,

    You have nothing to worry about, your safety is the priority of every cruise line. Unfortunately if the weather is rough, as you say, the tenders will not operate, again putting your safety first. All modern ships are fitted with stabilisers which reduce the motion caused by heavy seas so you should not have any problems. Wishing you a very happy first cruise.

    It looks to have been a lovely cruise. We are booked in October to go to the med on the Dream, a very old boat and am rather scared as have never cruised before. There is a chance if the weather is rough we shall not be able to stop at Sicily and Sorrento as they are tender transfers. That will be disappointing but hopefully it won’t happen and we will get to see those places. Corsica, Rome and Barcelona are also on the agenda,
