Marella Explorer 2 is adults only and flaunts a range of exciting facilities, from a Champneys Spa to a chic bar-club-casino space. You’ve got nine bars and nine restaurants on this ship, too. Top spots include The 19th Hole – a golf-themed bar with a golf simulator – Flutes, where you can sip Champagne* or Prosecco to the sounds of a pianist and Beach Cove – a relaxed restaurant with barbecue-inspired menus and quirky swinging seats. Not to mention the outdoor spaces, such as The Veranda, where you can enjoy far-reaching sea views.
All tips and service charges are included in the price of your Cruise. You're not expected to tip any of our crew - unless you want to, of course.
Our Royal Suite is the crème de la crème of cabins.

You've also got an en suite bathroom with a shower, a WC and a tub, plus a big balcony with a whirlpool. And all this measures up at a sizeable 94m².
Book one of our Junior Suites and you'll get to enjoy the views from your furnished balcony. These 23m2 suites are found on Deck 10 and 12, near the top of the ship, which gives you a great vantage point. Inside, you've got twin beds that convert into a queen-size, a sitting area with a double sofa bed and an en suite bathroom with a WC and shower over a bath. Please note cabins 1200 and 1201 do not have a bath.

Indigo is the ship’s flagship venue. It caters for daytime drinks with a view, as well as all-night dancing. A couple of other bars sort you out for laidback drinks, like the Squid and Anchor pub. For full-on glitz and glamour, the Broadway Show Lounge steps into view.
Thanks to its location, Aperitif is a great place to go before or after a meal at one of our speciality restaurants. Its menu features everything from Prosecco and spirits to cocktails.
Indigo lays claim to a huge bar, where flare demonstrations and cocktail-making sessions take place. There’s also plenty of seating for taking in the 360-degree views – day or night.
If you’re feeling lucky, you can try out the slot machines and card tables at the Indigo Casino.
You’ll find the club in the middle of Indigo. It flaunts a dancefloor and a DJ booth.
This deck bar provides cool-down drinks in between sunbathing. You’ll find it just above Snack Shack, overlooking the pool.
This show lounge is big enough to rival a Broadway theatre. And that’s not all it’s got going for it. There are 12 shows on offer, covering a variety of different styles of music. So, whatever your taste, you'll find something to tickle your fancy.
If you’re after something bubbly, Flutes is the bar for you. You can sip glasses of Champagne* or Prosecco while listening to the sounds of a pianist. Plus, there are handy ‘press for bubbles’ buttons dotted around.
* Please note, Champagne isn’t included as part of the standard All Inclusive package or the Premium All Inclusive package
Marella Cruise’s pub at sea is a modern take on a traditional British watering hole. There are two bars to pick from. One pours a great selection of drinks for you to choose from while you settle in for the evening entertainment. The other deals in premium gins and whiskies, which are chargeable. This place is home to a live band and quiz nights, too.
Themed cocktails aren’t all this clubhouse-inspired bar brings to the table. You can take up a seat in a golf buggy, or tee off on one of two golf simulators for a charge.
Pop into the studio for a professional photoshoot. You’ll also find kiosks, where you can view and buy all the photos captured by our onboard photography team.
Spanning two decks, this tip-top selection of boutiques is stocked with a huge range of products and big-name brands, covering everything from everyday essentials and souvenirs to perfume and jewellery.
