West End-style shows
After sundown, we like to turn the heat up, and nowhere more so than in our ship’s plush show lounges. They set the scene for some superb entertainment. You can be watching feather-plumed dancers one evening, and singing along to the West End’s finest musicals or Queen’s biggest hits the next. We also welcome UK stand-up comedians to the stage – sure to have you laughing ‘til your sides ache.
Forgive us the pun, but we really do push the boat out when it comes to keeping you busy on our transatlantic cruises. While we sail steadily across the ocean, you’ll find no end of workshops to sign up to – everything from learning to sing to perfecting your ballroom moves in dance classes. During the day, we throw quizzes, talks, game shows and demos in to the mix. And then there’s the entertainment. In the evening, it steps up a gear with live gigs, stand-up routines from UK comedians, musical guest acts and lavish West End-style shows.
You're Onto a Winner
Our onboard entertainment is something to write home about. Three of our ships have received accolades for their entertainment in the 2014 Cruise Critic UK Cruisers’ Choice Awards. These are prizes voted by you – the cruising public – which makes them even more worthy of a prime spot on the mantelpiece.
That’s not all. Between May 2013 and January 2014, 96 per cent of customers rated the ships’ entertainment as good or excellent. And here’s what some celebrity guests have to say…
“The Marella Cruises Entertainment Team is without doubt the best I have ever seen – so gifted and so versatile – and it delivers such a polished product” – Julie Peasgood.
“I had an absolute ball… I have never been on such a friendly ship with such top-notch entertainment, fabulous food, and wonderful crew” – Cheryl Baker.
Upgrades & Extras
It’s that celebration cake to mark a birthday or an anniversary, that indulgent breakfast in bed, that private sea view. There are lots of ways we can make you feel special. You can choose your cabin number, for example, or upgrade to a roomy Suite. Plus, we line up some fantastic shore excursions. As for other finishing touches, our onboard beauty salons and spas have a great range of treatments, and all our ships come with an à la carte restaurant for dining with a flamboyant edge.
