Introduction

Marella Celebration is one of the smaller ships in the Marella fleet, which makes it really friendly. It was refurbished in 2012, so you can look forward to jazzed-up cabins and contemporary furnishings in all the public areas. 

In 2013, they launched their premium coffee shop 'The Coffee Port'. Plus, 20 balconies were added to deck 9 cabins and 5 new Deluxe Balcony cabins were built on deck 5. And it really knows how to spoil you. Go gourmet in the sophisticated à la carte restaurant, or indulge to your heart's content in the spa.

Disabled Facilities

If you're planning a cruise and have a disability, use a wheelchair, have special dietary needs, a sensory impairment or are undergoing medical treatment, you must let Marella know when making your booking. Failure in doing this may result in you being refused boarding on arrival at the ship. For more information please contact Marella's Customer Welfare Team.

If you plan to use a wheelchair onboard and require adapted facilities you must book a specially adapted cabin. All of Marella shops have four of these cabins. These cabins may only be booked by those who require adapted facilities.If you plan to use your wheelchair onboard but do not require adapted facilities, pleas contact the Customer Welfare Team to make sure an appropriate cabin type can be selected.

If you need your wheelchair - either standard or battery operated - when you're ashore, Marella will look after it for you at the gangway so it's there when you need it. But you will have to be able to manage the gangway without it. In ports where a tender to shore is necessary, you'll have to stay onboard if you can't manage without your wheelchair. At other times, depending on the port and the tides , it may not be possible for you to leave the ship at all due to gangway access. Some excursions may not be suitable for the less mobile.

Special Dietary Requirements

If you’ve got any dietary requirements, mention it when you book and let the Maître D’ know once you’re onboard. There are a wide range of restaurants onboard, and each one has at least one vegetarian selection on the menu.

Special Diets

Just because you’ve got a special diet doesn’t mean you have to miss out. Let the staff know what you can and can’t eat when you book, and they'll’ll make sure the chefs whip up something suitable.
