  1. Hello We have booked 8105 cabin on Marella Explorer 2 just wondering if anyone has stayed in this room and had any noise issues? Cheers Gary
  2. It’s not great. Arrival was fine. Departures is not good. If you are first flight out or last flight out you may have a much better experience. But if your flight is about 15:00 be prepared! Take water, food and a book, as you will stand and wait and wait and wait. Took 2 and a Half hours from being dropped off at airport to get checked in, you do not have to double handle your luggage so once checked in they put the luggage on the belt and it’s taken away., this is one of the things that holds up check in, as once the belt is full, the check in staff have to stop as they physically cannot get anymore luggage on the belt and the systems won’t let them move on, until the bags move on! Once through security it was straight onto the plane, which took off 45 min late due to the back log of passengers at the airport Just be prepared!! Its not the best end to your cruise, but it is what it is. The ship is fantastic so just think of the happy times as your about to lose it at the airport 😀
  3. Thinking of going to the Loen Skylift near Olden Anyone have experience of this? The cost of approx £47 pp for an return trip is putting us off a little. I note there is a restaurant at the top, I hate to think how much food will be up there if that’s the cost of the just to,get up there! Would like to hear from people who have used the lift and experienced it, and if you thought it was value for money. I know Norway is expensive at the best of times, and I guess the weather would dictate the value, IE if it’s very cloudy / foggy etc probably not worth going up! Look forward to hearing from you.

  4. Once again thanks everyone for wine package advice. We took the 5 bottle one which was £72 The 7 bottle one is £99 Had great time on the Marella Celebration. Have fun, Cheers Sent from my iPad using Forums
  5. Hello We are Joining this cruise on the 28th June 2018 Just wondering when formal nights will be on board? It’s port intensive and no seadays, so just wondering when formal nights would be? Also wondering if it’s worth packing the Tux for any formal nights or if smart casual would suffice? We don’t mind getting dressed up for dinner, just with it being so port intensive they may change how many formal nights they have on the 7 night cruise? Would like to hear from anyone who has just done this portion of the cruise recently, and thought or tips for ports of call. Cheers Gary Sent from my iPad using Forums
  6. Thank you both Edinburgher and campolady for your very helpful info! Not too late, we don’t go until 28th June! [emoji106] I think we will try for the 5 bottle pkg and see how we go from there! Many thanks Gary Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  7. Hello dronnygirl Many thanks for your reply. We will look out for the wine package once we get onboard . Cheers Gary Sent from my iPad using Forums
  8. Hello We will be sailing on the Marella Celebration on 28th June 2018 We don’t have the all inclusive pkg, as the itinerary is very port intensive. But we do like a bottle of wine with evening meals. Just wondered if Marella did something like a 6 or 7 bottle wine package with a bit of discount, or is it just buy as you go? Many thanks in advance Sent from my iPad using Forums
