Marella Explorer, like Marella Explorer 2, is a ship born for Celebrity Cruises, ex Celebrity Galaxy, which has undergone several passages over time. From 2009 to 2018 it contributed to the development and success of the German brand Tui Cruises, with the name Mein Schiff first and Mein Schiff 1 later. The ship underwent a substantial modernisation in 2018 which made the ship still very usable and current.
The style on board the ships of Marella Cruises is informal and adapted to the main clientele that is of British origin. On these ships, however, there is a more international imprint and you can enjoy modern and comfortable environments, both inside and outside.

Fantastic cruise!

I liked

Ship, staff, food

I didn't like


Once on board we were impressed not only by the beauty of the ship but also by the friendliness of the staff, who also immediately guided us to our stateroom. The ship was always clean and the food was very good, we also tried the speciality restaurants and they were outstanding! The entertainment staff were very nice, we enjoyed the activities organized during the day. The children's program was also excellent with the mini club where our children had a lot of fun. Beautiful destinations, Funchal was amazing, we went on the car’s cable, saw the gardens and the market. The excursion to Santa Cruz was beautiful. Good overall experience on Marella Explorer board: friendly staff, clean and well-maintained ship, good organization.
