Marella Explorer 2
There are plenty of familiar faces on Marella Explorer 2’s dining scene. And they cater for all kinds of taste buds – whether you fancy some European eats or fiery Asian flavours.
The 19th Hole
Themed cocktails aren’t all this clubhouse-inspired bar brings to the table. You can take up a seat in a golf buggy, or tee off on one of two golf simulators for a little extra.
The Dining Club
This fine dining restaurant was made for foodies. You’ll be treated to high-end cuisine – like seared scallops with Champagne butter and chateaubriand for two – making it the ideal spot for an extra special evening. It also hosts The Great Musical Afternoon Tea. This weekly event brings the West End to Marella Cruises, with dishes inspired by famous musicals – like the ‘Vietnamese Melody’ beef tenderloin yakitori and the ‘On My Own’ petit choux. There are six teas to choose from, as well as a cocktail of your choice. Plus, the whole place is decorated with show posters and memorabilia. There’s a charge to dine here.
The Market Place
For fresh-out-the-oven pizza, grilled-to-order paninis and all your buffet favourites.
If you’re after something bubbly, Flutes is the bar for you. You can sip glasses of Champagne* or Prosecco while listening to the sounds of a pianist. Plus, there are handy ‘press for bubbles’ buttons dotted around.
*Please note, Champagne isn’t included as part of the standard All Inclusive package or the premium drinks package.
You can make your own pizza and pasta dishes from scratch at this laidback pizzeria, which is open for lunch and dinner.
Food stalls, beach huts and oversized deckchairs set the scene at this laidback eatery. As such, you can look forward to grab ‘n’ go lunches and snacks, like hot dogs and burgers. There’s a drinks station on hand, too.
The main waiter service restaurant is a good-looking place, with a gold-and-grey colour scheme and floor-to-ceiling windows.
You’ll find Vista on the first floor of Latitude 53. Come evening, it transforms into a contemporary Italian restaurant.
Surf & Turf Steakhouse
This place does what it says on the tin, specialising in all things meat and seafood. The menu stars various cuts of steak and you can watch the chef cook yours on the open grill. The interiors are inspired by the meaty menu, as well, with chopping board artwork and leather booth seating. A cover charge applies for dining here.
