Marella Cruises UK has started a series of 26 weekly sailings from Port Canaveral's Terminal 5, which will run until November, with the Marella Discovery ship.

This is Marella's first Caribbean deployment with roundtrip departures from the USA.

Every week, roughly 1500 British tourists will arrive on 5 flights from the UK, before embarking on each ex-Florida voyage.

Marella Discovery's Captain Chris Douglass was presented with a plaque by Canaveral Port Authority Commissioner RADM Wayne Justice (USCG-Ret.) as a welcome to Port Canaveral.

During the Port Canaveral homeporting season, the liner will operate different itineraries including the "American Dream," "Floridian Favourites" and "Sunshine State and Sands" programs.

Marella UK becomes the 6th cruise line/brand with a Port Canaveral/Orlando homeported vessel, alongside CCL-Carnival, DCL-Disney, MSC, NCL-Norwegian, and RCI-Royal Caribbean.
