Since joining us in 2012, Majesty has carried more than 300,000 passengers, clocked up an impressive 323,714 nautical miles, and become a firm fleet favourite with our loyal cruisers. But, after 10 seasons of cruising, it’s time to say goodbye.
This isn’t the end though. Along with our new name – Marella Cruises – we’re bringing in box-fresh itineraries, destinations, and even a new addition to our fleet.
So, let’s meet the rest of the fleet. We’ve picked out some of Majesty’s most well-loved features, and matched them up with some of our other ships that we’re certain you’ll love.
Seasoned Marella cruisers know that our friendly service is second to none. Whichever ship you pick, our crew always make sure that you feel right at home. Marella Spirit’s been with us for 14 years, so it’s had plenty of time to perfect its can’t-do-enough attitude. If that sounds like your kind of ship, Marella Spirit will be based in Malaga, Spain for summer 2018, ticking off highlights like the Portuguese capital Lisbon, and Barcelona, as well as Gibraltar, at the tip of Spain.
If you liked getting your teeth into Majesty’s variety of restaurants, Marella Dream takes things up a notch. It sees Thomson Majesty’s selection of five restaurants, and raises it six. With options including the Kora La pan-Asian joint and a hot-stone grill, you’ll be sure to find something to get your appetite going. Marella Dream’s spending summer based in Palma, Majorca, calling in at Corsica, Ibiza, and Rome. Or, cruise next winter for stops at Lanzarote, Madeira and Morocco.
Were you a fan of Thomson Majesty’s smaller scale? Marella Celebration keeps things pint-sized, too – there’s just a couple of metres difference in size between the two, so the vibe’s just as homely as Majesty. In fact, there are fewer cabins on Marella Celebration, and only 10 decks to Majesty’s 11. Next summer, you can set sail from Game of Thrones favourite, Dubrovnik, on Marella Celebration. You’ll call in at Venice, Montenegro’s Bar, and Greece’s capital, Athens. Or, escape the cold with a winter 2018 Caribbean cruise, stopping at St Lucia, Grenada, and Antigua.
Looking for something a little different? Why not try one of our newer, bigger ships – Marella Discovery, Marella Discovery 2, or our newest addition, Marella Explorer. In summer 2018, you can sail from the UK on Marella Discovery to the likes of Norway, St Petersburg, and Copenhagen. Marella Discovery 2, meanwhile, will cover Corfu, Santorini and Athens. And, Marella Explorer will make its maiden voyage from Majorca, visiting St Tropez and Cannes, Naples, and Florence. Plus, in winter, both Marella Discovery 2 and Marella Explorer will be exploring the Caribbean, while Marella Discovery will head east for our brand-new Asian itineraries.
Although we’re sad to see Thomson Majesty go, we’ll carry on cruising with our shiny new name and, of course, the same friendly welcome.
