Marella Cruises Christmas and New Year

Christmas cruises 2018 New Year's Eve

Rating:

Marella Cruises Christmas and New Year's deals are a perfect choice for the UK Xmas travelers who count on tradition. The Marella Holidays cruise line offers everything - from adults-only to family-friendly voyages featuring the same high British standards. There's top class cuisine and service right on the money.

Marella Holidays provides couples and families with tempting "Cruise and Stay" options and all-inclusive drinks packages. The selection of onboard activities attract juniors; while the fantastic selection of bars and couples spa treatments appeal to the mature ones. On Marella ships, there are usually a number of families (during school holidays in the UK), but singles and couples are also well-represented. MARELLA Holidays is a top seller of UK Xmas cruise deals - together with Saga Holidays - another traditional player on the British cruising market.

Thomson Cruises Christmas and New Year - CruiseMapper

Marella's cruising experience is somewhere between the ultra-casual and traditional (British lines like Fred Olsen and P&O UK). For the most part, the Marella line follows the traditional voyage format. All Marella ships provide open-seating dining. There are also casual buffet restaurants open for all meals, plus a la carte dinner options. Dress code aboard is casual, with the exception of one formal night. Then, the buffet restaurant is the casual option for those who are not eager to dress up. Production shows, a casino and other traditional cruise activities are featured. Marella Canary Islands cruises for Christmas and New Year are from Tenerife and Gran Canaria on Thomson Majesty ship. Caribbean Holiday deals, Mexican Riviera and Cuba cruises are also available (on Marella Celebration and Marella Dream) leaving from Barbados (Bridgetown port) and Jamaica (Montego Bay port). As prices, Marella Xmas cruise deals are quite more affordable, compared to other traditional lines. They cost around £130 per day per person, depending on destination and ship. Early booking or last minute deals are available at the cheapest rates of £60 per day.

Marella Christmas cruise and New Year holidays attract a broad cross-section of Britain's middle class along with travelers of all ages. The line has always been attracting first-time cruisers but also sees an increasing number of repeat guests who don't want to "move up" to more deluxe lines. Marella company aimed to have such an effect on the British market like Carnival did it in the US, and to move cruising experience from a niche market to the mainstream of tourism in GB. Despite her aging ships, Marella Cruises have won name recognition and attractive fares. Marella Cruises currently holds 1% market share of the cruise industry worldwide. 

Most Marella itineraries are 7-night repeated every week. Spring and autumn months bring varied repositioning voyages. From 7 May 2015 the Platinum Marella Celebration ship moved to a new home port of Dubrovnik (Croatia), offering a variety of port calls, ten new destinations (including the Mediterranean and Adriatic) and four new itineraries. 28 new ports have been added to Marella summer programme, including such in Albania, Croatia, Greece and Italy. Thomson Spirit also boasts a new home port - Marmaris (Turkey), and new itineraries. Marella offers flights from 24 airports in the UK on Marella's airline and pre-/post-cruise land packages.

  • Marella Celebration ship offers round-trip Caribbean itineraries leaving from Dominican Republic (La Romana), also visiting Barbados.
  • Marella Discovery ship (former Splendour of the Seas and TUI Discovery) offers Caribbean itineraries departing round-trip from Barbados (Bridgetown).
  • Marella Discovery 2 ship (former Legend of the Seas and TUI Discovery 2) cruises to Cuba and Panama on roundtrip itineraries from Jamaica (Montego Bay).
  • Marella Dream ship offers Canary Islands itineraries out of Tenerife and Gran Canaria.
  • Thomson Majesty ship has currently no scheduled Christmas and New Years Eve cruises.
