Upgrades & Extras

Add the finishing touches to your cruise holiday with our range of upgrades and extras.

Before you go

When it comes to the perfect holiday, the final details can make a real difference. Get your cruise off to a great start by pre-booking your chosen extras before you set sail.

Upgrade your cabin

Perhaps you’ve got your eye on a balcony cabin with its own outdoor space, or a roomy suite with extras like bath robes and iPod docking stations. Whatever it is you fancy, you can upgrade at the time of booking or by calling us on 0203 451 2688.

Reserve your cabin

Guarantee yourself a spot near your favourite restaurant, close to your friends, or with a double bed when you reserve your cabin. You can do this when you book or up to 15 days before you sail, from just £65 per cabin. If you want to reserve a cabin after you’ve booked, just call us on 0203 451 2688.

A little something extra

If you’re celebrating a birthday or an anniversary, or just fancy spoiling yourself, you can choose from a range of treats to make your cruise holiday extra special. Call us on 0203 451 2688 to book. *Prices are subject to change.

  • A chilled bottle of Champagne and chocolate-dipped strawberries from £59

  • A celebration cake from £19

  • A bouquet of flowers from £49

  • Sparkling wine in your cabin on arrival from £20

  • A ‘celebrate in style’ package including Champagne, chocolate-dipped strawberries, a cake and fresh flowers in your cabin, plus an announcement in Cruise News, a professional photograph and breakfast in bed on a day of your choice from £119

Celebration of vows

Cruising provides a romantic backdrop to your celebration of vows*. We’ve got three packages to choose from – Silver, Gold and Platinum. Prices range from £250 to £475 for summer 2024 onwards. Whichever one you pick, you’ll get a service conducted by the ship’s Captain or Senior Officer, a musical afternoon tea session, a bouquet of flowers and a buttonhole, a professional photograph and a bottle of Champagne to celebrate. For more information and to book, give us a call on 0203 451 2585. Just so you know, calls to this number cost 10p per minute plus your standard network rate. Phone lines are open from 9am to 7pm Monday to Friday, 9am to 6pm on Saturdays, and 10am to 5pm on Sundays.

Premium drinks

All our ships are All Inclusive as standard, but sometimes you just fancy a little extra. Upgrade to our Premium drinks package, and you can look forward to upgraded cocktails, premium vodkas, gins, rums and tequilas, a wider choice of whiskies, cognacs and brandies, plus canned soft drinks, a range of hot and cold drinks from Coffee Port, and a 1.5l bottle of water in your cabin each day. You can upgrade when you book, or by calling us on 0203 451 2688.

Ocean Spas

Each of our ships has its own spa and beauty salon, where you can spoil yourself with a pampering session. Treatment menus tick off the likes of facials, body scrubs, manicures and pedicures. You can even get a new hairdo. Prices vary, but you can expect to pay around £50 for a 25-minute facial, or £80 for a 50-minute massage – book onboard on the Navigate app or at the spa.

Shore excursions

Make the most out of your time in port with our handpicked range of shore excursions. The line-up includes everything from city tours to snorkelling trips, so there’s something to suit every traveller. They’re available to book on Marella Cruise Control from two months before you set sail. Why not check out our Discover article on Mediterranean shore excursions.
