  • Which ships are in the Marella Cruises fleet?

    Have you taken our quiz to find out which Marella Cruises ship is for you? We’ve got six in our fleet, and each has something a little different onboard. So, whether you’re cruising with the kids, fancy exploring the Norwegian Fjords, or are searching for a ship with a cosy feel, there’s a Marella Cruises ship for you. Read on to find out what’s on offer…

    1. Marella Dream

    Marella Dream is a lot like Marella Celebration – loads of facilities on a smaller ship. There are two pools onboard, plus a couple of whirlpool baths on Deck 11, and an extra one just for kids. You’ll find all the staples of a Marella Cruises ship, including the Broadway Show Lounge – which shows off West End-style entertainment every night of the week – and The Coffee Port, where you can grab freshly brewed hot drinks by day, and pick up a cocktail in the evening. There are plenty of facilities unique to Marella Dream, too, including the Sirens Restaurant, where you can indulge in a spot of afternoon tea. Plus, there’s the Medusa Lounge & Bar. Here, huge windows offer up top-notch sea views, and live bands take to the stage after sundown.

    Which regions does Marella Celebration sail to?

    • The Atlantic
    • Western Med
    • Eastern Med
    • Caribbean

    2. Marella Discovery and Marella Discovery 2

    These sister ships are packed with all the best bits of Marella Dream and Marella Celebration, plus a few family-friendly additions. They’re ideal if you’re cruising with your brood, as kids can burn off energy at the climbing wall – they’ll be raving about the views at the top for days – and put their thinking caps on at the Breakout Challenge, where they’ll need to solve puzzles before the time runs out. There’s a kids’ club for three to 11-year olds, Babytainment classes for little ones under three, and Hideout, which is just for teens. If that’s not enough, there’s minigolf and an open-air cinema for evenings watching films under the stars. While the kids are busy, parents can relax at the onboard spa, stretch their legs on the jogging track, or grab a drink at the Squid & Anchor – our pub at sea.

    Which regions do these ships sail to?

    • The Atlantic
    • Western Med
    • Eastern Med
    • The Middle East

    3. Marella Explorer and Marella Explorer 2

    The newest ships in the Marella Cruises fleet both come with a belt-loosening 10 restaurants and bars each. There’s a steak spot, sushi bar and Italian eatery to name a few, plus watering holes on both the inside and outside decks. Evenings onboard are packed with entertainment at the Broadway Show Lounge, live music at the Squid and Anchor, plus discos at the Indigo club, bar and casino. Marella Explorer and Marella Explorer 2 are also the first in the fleet to have a Champneys spa and gym, plus our signature ice-cream parlour, Scoops. The big difference between the two? Marella Explorer 2 is just for adults. Make the most of your child-free sailing at Flutes, our Champagne and Prosecco bar, where you can press a button and have drinks delivered straight to your table.
