Marella Cruises (UK) announced it had increased the capacity of its cruise & hotel portfolio by a total of 59% in summer 2024, which is already on sale.

The TUI hotels on offer can be tagged before/after a cruise to 8 destinations.

The TUI-owned company will also offer Turkey-visiting itineraries featuring Marmaris as a homeport for the first time in 9 years.

The 2024 program includes 2 new for the brand ports, with Marella Explorer ship visiting Oristano (Sardinia) and Motril (Spain) at the end of winter, prior to starting her summer voyages in Corfu (Greece).

According to Chris Hackney, managing director of cruise for Tui UK & Ireland, Cruise & Stay was an excellent way to holiday.

“The flexibility allows guests to enjoy the best of both worlds, giving them the chance explore several destinations on a cruise, but also the opportunity to spend some time ashore in a destination of their choice.

“All our properties are researched and handpicked from Tui’s range to best suit customers’ preferences, and there’s more than 200 hotels to choose from.”

The itineraries from Marmaris feature Aegean Jewels, Ancient Icons, Ottoman Odyssey, and Undiscovered Aegean, visiting popular sites in Cyprus, Greece, Israel, and Turkey.

Turkey itineraries out of Marmaris will go on sale in December.
