    1. We’re All Inclusive as standard

    Every ship in our fleet is All Inclusive as standard. That means all of your meals, selected draught beers, spirits and aperitifs, soft drinks, cocktails, and house wines are included in the cost of your sailing. And, the All Inclusive experience with Marella Cruises doesn’t stop there. Your flights, luggage, transfers, tips and service charges are all covered in the cost, too. Book now and everything is taken care of before you set sail.

    2. There are tonnes of destinations to explore

    We sail to over 200 exciting locations worldwide, so you can see the best spots across the globe. Visit Greece’s islands or watch postcard-perfect sunsets in Sri Lanka. See the northern lights in Norway, or cross off the best of the Caribbean. We have itineraries covering off the Caribbean and Central America, Scandinavia and the Baltics, the Western and Eastern Mediterranean, the Canary Islands, and Morocco, plus UK homeports in Newcastle and Southampton. So, on some cruises, you won’t even need to fly to join the ship. And, we make sure you spend less time at sea, giving you more time in port than ever before. Plus, for a bit extra, you can try some of our shore excursions, which showcase the best parts of our ports and their surrounding areas. Can’t decide which to choose? The Destination Services team onboard your ship will help find the right one for you.

    3. The amazing onboard entertainment

    You’ll never be bored onboard a Marella Cruises ship, as we’ve got activities to keep everyone happy. Our line-up of evening entertainment includes West End-style shows and stand-up comedians, plus live bands and cabaret acts. Or, if you’re after something a bit more low key, we’ve got plenty of quiet spots where you can cosy up with a cocktail. Plus, during the day there are wine-tasting workshops, cookery demos and quizzes and game shows to choose from, too.



    4. Your home from home

    We’ve got over two decades of cruising experience alongside TUI’s holiday expertise, so you can relax knowing everything is taken care of. And, from the moment you join us onboard, you can expect the warmest of welcomes from the friendliest crew at sea. We pride ourselves on our attentive service, so all you have to do is sit back and relax. Wherever you sail, we’ll always remember your name, give you a big smile – and make you a proper cuppa.

    5. Spread the cost with £75pp low deposits and Direct Debit

    Want to spread the cost of your cruise? Give yourself more time to pay with our low deposits. Your initial deposit is just £75 per person, or £125 per person if you’re travelling to faraway shores, and you’ve got 12 weeks to pay the rest of the upfront cost.
