There’ll be seven dining spots to choose from, including a main restaurant spread over two storeys, and three à la cartes – two of these will showcase spectacular views from a setting on the top floor. You can dine with a difference at the Chef’s Table, too, with a hosting chef cooking right in front of you. For afternoon tea and after-dinner cocktails, meanwhile, you’ll have eight bars and lounges to dip in and out of.

entertainment

You can watch movies under a star-lit sky at the ship’s outdoor cinema. Indoors, there are nightly shows in Marella biggest ever Broadway Show Lounge, and pianists and acoustic musicians take to the stage in the atrium – an elegant space that changes colour when the sun goes down. The plush casino, meanwhile, is the place to head for a late-night flutter.

health fitness

Spend the day taking it easy: relax by the swimming pool with a drink in your hand, head to the spa for a massage or spend some time in the saunas.

kid & teen

Marella Cruises have worked on every last detail when it comes to getting the kids onboard. That means family-sized and inter-connecting cabins, buffet lunches featuring favourites like pizza and spaghetti bolognese, and a great mix of activities. 

They lay on table tennis and football tournaments, fun quizzes, and early evening shows during their sea days. And when the ship is in port, children up to the age of 12 get discounted rates on some of their exciting shore excursions. 

Every ship has a free Kids’ Club, too. So mum and dad can have time together while the little ones fill their days with treasure hunts, face-painting, and stories.
