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 charge.
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. This is one of the ship's speciality restaurants, so there's a charge to dine here – plus, we recommend you make a reservation in advance.
The Market Place
For fresh-out-the-oven pizza, grilled-to-order paninis and sandwiches at lunchtime, plus all your buffet favourites. Regular theme nights cover cuisine from around the world, including Mexican, Chinese and Japanese.
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 All Inclusive 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.
