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, please 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.

Marella also provide gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free and diabetic-friendly options on request. They don’t cater for kosher diets, but if you bring your own kosher food, they can prepare it for you.

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.

Smoking Policy

On the Marella Cruise Ships you can smoke on your balcony if you have one and in designated areas on deck.

As for e-cigarettes, you can use these in the casino and adjoining bar areas on each Marella ships, as well as in the designated areas on deck.

Dress Code

Smart casual is the attire for evenings onboard. For men that means full-length trousers and a polo or open-necked shirt. At the captain's cocktail party, the dress code is traditional dinner wear, so tuxedo or suit and tie for men and evening dress for women.

Entertainment

This ship is probably most famous for its entertainment. Every evening gets off to a rousing start with a West-End style show in the plush Broadway Show Lounge. But throughout the whole day there’s loads of live music that’ll appeal to all ages and tastes, plus game shows, quizzes and comedy.

Casino

Here, you can try your luck at the slot machines and enjoy a light-hearted flutter at the casino’s roulette and blackjack tables.

Tides

Set in the centre of the ship, this is a convenient place to meet friends. During the day, musicians provide a low-key soundtrack. Later on, the grand piano gets an airing and singer soloists will draw you towards the dance floor.

The Water's Edge

This large space with banquette seating is home to late-night discos and the ship’s dance floor.

Pool Bar

Right at the top of the ship, the bar staff here mix and shake cocktails like a pro. It’s then over to you to relax by the pool, drink in hand, and enjoy the sea views.

Delo Bar

Low lights and maroon bucket chairs give this space an intimate, pub-like feel. It’s the calling card for post-dinner drinks while a piano vocalist tickles the ivories.

Medusa Lounge & Bar

This is the ship’s biggest lounge. Floor-to-ceiling windows keep it bright and airy, making it a lovely place to watch the world go by. Live bands and spotlight cabaret take to the stage here, and there’s a dance floor. Plus, there are plenty of seats grouped around small tables to get stuck in to the likes of bingo and game shows. For drinks, there’s a well-stocked bar in the corner.

Explorer's Lounge

Huge table lamps and big solid tables set the scene here. By day, it’s a low-lit spot for relaxing over cappuccinos and quiet chitchat. It’s also one of the ship’s WiFi zones. By night, the maroon silk curtains are drawn and the tempo is upped with a soundtrack of smooth tunes, courtesy of the resident pianist.

Broadway Show Lounge

This 2-storey show lounge sparks in to life every evening with musical entertainment and comedy from UK guest acts. It’s a large space, dressed in shades of crimson and walnut and subtly lit with ceiling spotlights and pumpkin-shaped table lamps. Comfy bucket chairs, semi-circular sofas and just-for-2 seats give it top marks for cosiness. There are 2 shows every night – early and late – that cover off anything from West End-style musicals to classics from the Eighties. You can expect high kicks, dry ice, and plenty of costume changes.

Pure Portrait Studio

Head to the onboard photo studio for a session with a professional portrait artist. For a shoot that’s a little less ordinary, try the Seascape Experience. With this one, you’ll be snapped out on deck with the ship and horizon providing the backdrop.

Photo Gallery

The ship’s photographers are around every day to capture the highlights of your cruise on film.

Browser's Corner

Dark-wood panelling and chock-a-block bookcases set the scene here. You can help yourself to daily sudoku challenges, and pick out paperbacks from the shelves. Plus, there’s a good hoard of jigsaws and board games to borrow. A bank of PCs and chargeable Wi-Fi means you can email and Facebook loved ones back home.

The Sun Lounge

This brand new sunbathing area has a beach club-style feel, with comfy daybeds as standard and a bar.

Broad Street Shops

The parade of shops has daily promotions on jewellery, fashion and cosmetics, with up to 50% savings on selected lines.

The Coffee Port

This cosy coffee shop is located in Marella Dream's Explorers' Lounge. By day, it's the place to grab cappuccinos, cake and ice-cream. At night, meanwhile, it turns into a cocktail corner.

Card Room

The wood-panelled card room is stocked with playing cards and board games like Trivial Pursuit and Scrabble. It’s light and bright, with a dozen or so tables and chairs with chequer-board backs.
