First the good cabin very clean staff brilliant food in in the 47 restaurant very good .The glasshouse was amazing ,atrium spectacular . Staff everywhere very polite and helpfull .Now the bad ,breakfast in the islands buffet was awfull bacon was like shoe leather, and the scrambled eggs smelt like horse poo,Had a continental breakfast instead.Entertainment was okay the two live bands were brilliant ,but the live room was shabby and dull .When the band was on the stage it looked like,they were on a video film with the shiny curtains behind them lGeorgia pepper utter rubbish,Doesn't need a piano in that room When she came on the live room, became the dead room

The whole experience very good , and we will definitely book another cruise in the future. We were on floor 8 which was below the pool and sundeck. It was very noisy in the evening and first thing in the morning when the sunloungers were moved about, so we have learnt to have a cabin on floor 7 on the next cruise. The restuarants and bars were good, and we ate in the Surf & Turf and the KoraLa. The staff on the ship were all efficient and friendly. The staff in KoraLa deserve a special mention, Benjie, Jenalyn,Ronaldo, Roden & Yori who were all very informative about the dishes on the menu, and made us feel comfortable.

Just returned from a weeks cruise on Marella Discovery, lovely ship, fantastic staff, wonderful food and drink are all the positives. We were allocated Cabin 3535 on Deck 3. Unfortunately this was underneath a bar and the noise was dreadful. Not from people but from staff clearing and restocking, things being moved around, etc. It went on until 2/3 am and it was really loud. On the first night we were really tired but thought it maybe people settling in etc but when it happened on the second night with no sleep, we went straight to Reception in the morning and complained. After a lot of discussion he said he would try to find us another cabin but wasn't sure and to come back later. Fortunately he did find us another on Deck 6 which was fine. We then had to pack up everything and take it to Deck 6. A Stewart helped us with a trolley. Then unpack again which takes a while. This was all quite stressful and time consuming. I thought we may have been upgraded for the inconvenience but were not. We found out after from one of the cabin stewards that everybody who stayed in that cabin has complained. I feel that should not allocate this cabin at all.
