Marina is a comfortable mid-size ship, offering a country club casual ambiance with a high level of personalised service.
As soon as you step on board, the Lalique grand staircase awaits, with access to the reception and excursions desks, you get a real sense of premium luxury. One of the great things all around the ship is the stunning works of art, some of them worth $4 million each.
There are multiple dining options, six are open seating gourmet restaurants with no surcharge. The Grand Dining Room is decorated in rich words, tapestry fabrics and exudes classic splendour.
For the ultimate dining experience, visit Jacques, inspired from artist Jacques Pepin’s the dishes are freshly prepared with a French flare. You can also eat in your stateroom or suite 24 hours a day!
If you want to learn something new, the La Reserve by Wine Spectator offers enlightening seminars, tastings and gourmet food pairings. The Culinary Center is the only hands-on cooking school at sea, in some ports of call, you can even go shopping with the chef and prepare local dishes. You can learn crafts and arts in the Artist Loft enrichment centre.
There are also shops on board to pick up souvenirs and a great show lounge with broadway style shows. The accommodation is lavish, spacious and comfortable.
I think that if you’ve not tried a premium luxury cruise holiday, now is the time to step up and try it, you won’t look back.
