With everything from West End-style shows and live music to cookery demos and fitness sessions, we’ve got plenty to keep you busy at sea.

You’ll have plenty of options when it comes to filling your time onboard, thanks to our huge entertainment line-up. And don’t just take our word for it – we were named Best for Entertainment in the 2021 Wave Awards. From quizzes and casinos to live music and West End-style shows, there’s something for everyone – and you can get involved with as much or as little as you like. Check out our six fun things to do on a cruise and take a look below of a snapshot of what we’ve got to offer…

What to expect

West End-style shows

All of our ships come with a plush, theatre-like show lounge. Here, you can catch one of 11 different all-singing all-dancing shows – there are two performances on the roster every evening.

Late-night dancing

There’s a dedicated place to party on each of our ships. You can kick off your night with some low-key live music, followed up by toe-tapping tunes from our resident band. Later on, you’re free to show off your best dance moves at the onboard nightclub.

Laidback live music

If you fancy a laidback evening, look out for our acoustic musicians and cabaret acts. They’ll provide the soundtrack to your night while you sip your favourite cocktails from the bar.

Games and quizzes

You can put your general knowledge to the test during one of our pub quizzes at Squid & Anchor. There are interactive game shows, too, if you fancy something different. Or, dance with Lady Luck at our onboard casino.

Cultural classes

Catch a cookery demo with one of the ship’s head chefs, or practice your own culinary skills at one of our kitchen classes. Cocktail-making demos and wine-tasting sessions also star on the agenda.

Fitness and sports

Our ships with sports decks lay on table tennis and shuffleboard, and you can stretch and bend your way through a morning fitness session. Or, master your best moves at one of our dance classes. Read our Discover article on how to stay in ship-shape on a Marella cruise.
