This is an exciting time for us. With sleek, modern additions to our fleet – such as Marella Explorer – and exotic new routes in the pipeline, it’s the perfect time to look ahead. But just because we’ve had a bit of a transformation, it doesn’t mean you can expect anything less. We’re sticking to the motto – ‘new name, same friendly welcome’.
The word Marella, which means ‘shining sea’ in Celtic, sums up who we are and what we do. The shining sea is the place we call home – one that you can come back to again and again. As Marella Cruises, we’ll take you across it, to explore amazing destinations over every horizon.
We’ll still be sailing to over 120 destinations, so you can explore ancient cities, set foot on tropical islands and marvel at breathtaking fjords. Plus, there’s the option of stepping straight onboard from our UK bases of Newcastle and Southampton. Whether you want a modern, All Inclusive experience, or you’re looking for something small and cosy, we have a ship with your name on it.
We’re famous for making it easy, with sterling accepted onboard, flights from 22 regional airports in the UK and Ireland, and an unbeatable choice of Cruise & Stay holidays. We’ve even included all tips and service charges, so you can focus on having the best time onboard.
Although our name has changed, the great, friendly service that you’ve come to know and love will stay the same. Whether you’ve cruised with us before, or you’re planning your first adventure, the one thing you’ll notice is the way our crew makes you feel at home. Our service is attentive, friendly and familiar, designed to help you relax knowing everything’s taken care of.
What does tomorrow have in store at Marella Cruises? More ships, new shores and new journeys. So when you cruise with us in 2018 and over the years to come, we’ll bring you the best destinations, lots of choice and more experiences than ever before, reflecting our spirit of exploration and discovery. A new name for new times.
