Marella Cruises

From glistening glaciers to tropical shores, there are so many places to explore with Marella Cruises. They sail to over 120 destinations – there’s even the option of stepping straight onboard our cruises from one of their UK homeports. Whether it’s modern, All Inclusive cruise holidays you’re interested in, or intimate and cosy, they’ve got the ship to suit. They’re always adding to their fleet, so you can expect state-of-the-art facilities like climbing walls and cinemas, along with cruise classics like first-class entertainment and sophisticated dining. And it gets even better, they include tipping and service charges in their prices, so you don’t have to worry about paying extra.

Who goes on Marella Cruises cruise ships?

Marella's passengers are almost exclusively from the U.K., with everything onboard geared to British tastes, from food and drink to stand-up and pub quizzes. Most are over 50, but the age range comes down considerably in the school holidays when competitive pricing and convenient flights from local airports, as well as free kids' clubs, make Marella attractive to families. However, a handful of the line's ships are adults-only and draw an older crowd.


Do I have to dress up on a Marella Cruises cruise?

Not too much. The dress code is casual apart from one dress-to-impress night per seven-day cruise, which can be interpreted as you wish. Tuxedos and ball gowns are a rarity and, in fact, would seem out of place, but people do make an effort on these nights to dress it up.


Is everything free on Marella Cruises cruises?

Not quite. Marella's cruises are fairly inclusive with gratuities and basic drinks included. Meals in select venues are also included. Extra costs include an upgrade to premium wine and spirits, bottled water and specialty coffee, spa treatments, shore excursions and specialty dining.


What are Marella Cruises's most popular activities?

Marella's ships are packed with activities, which is just how Marella cruisers want it. Among the more popular activities are poolside contests, lively evening entertainment and, on ships that have them, virtual reality games, escape rooms, climbing walls and mini-golf.
