About Marella Cruises

An award-winning part of the TUI group, Marella Cruises* visits more than 200 destinations - including Europe, Asia and an extensive Caribbean offering - with holidays beginning from 22 UK airports or sailings out of Newcastle or Southampton.

In the name of simplicity, every cruise is all-inclusive including:

  • flights
  • transfers
  • meals
  • drinks
  • luggage
  • tips & service charges

The Marella fleet ranges from large ships boasting such state-of-the-art facilities as climbing walls or cinemas to more intimate vessels. All provide a taste of luxury on the "shining sea" - which is what "Marella" means in the Celtic language.

Why cruise with Marella?

With a portfolio of 200+ destinations, covering tropical islands, deep-blue glaciers and creeper-covered Asian temples, new horizons are guaranteed.

Two decades of sailing experience, allied with TUI's own holiday expertise and 24-hour customer service, separates Marella from the cruising crowd, as does an end-to-end service specific to the UK.

Awards have endorsed the friendly atmosphere, courtesy of staff who pride themselves on remembering not only a guest's name, but also their favourite cocktail, and the diverse entertainment options onboard.

Additionally heralded for its value for money, Marella Cruises promises fewer days at sea than other lines with the focus instead on destinations and a comprehensive programme of excursions.

Cruise ships

Marella Cruises' current fleet of four ships differ - as the chart below demonstrates - in size, facility and feel. The biggest is Marella Explorer, whose contemporary finish accompanies a Champneys Spa and especially-extensive dining options.

Its sister ship, Marella Explorer 2, has similar amenities but is exclusively for adults and throws in luxury sunbathing area The Veranda.

Offering such excitement as outdoor cinemas, rock-climbing walls and mini-golf courses, both Marella Discovery and its newer sister, Marella Discovery 2, are very family-friendly.

Life onboard

Each of Marella Cruises' ships affords a distinct array of dining options spanning all-day buffets, grab-and-go snack bars, afternoon tea and a la carte restaurants.

Most are covered in the all-inclusive rate with only speciality dining - such as meat-loving Surf & Turf Steakhouses on all four Explorer and Discovery boats - costing extra.

The bar options are just as vast with none more memorable than Marella Explorer 2's The 19th Hole, a clubhouse-inspired den with golf simulators.

Diversity of choice also underpins the ships' entertainment menus, which have won various public-voted gongs. Sail-away deck parties set the scene for everything from early-morning exercise classes to evening cabaret shows via trivia quizzes and sports tournaments.

With the exception of adults-only Marella Explorer 2, there's much distraction for smaller guests, too, be it splashing in designated pools or watching family-friendly evening shows.

Ships come with a free kids' club for those aged three to 11 while restaurants have children's menus and, far more importantly, buffets serve plenty of ice-cream.

You won't pay cabin supplements for juniors and there are special prices for under-twos. Talking of special, the many possible upgrades aboard run to breakfast in bed and pampering spa treatments to mark a birthday or anniversary.
