Thomson Cruises To Rebrand As Marella Cruises

Thomson Cruises has announced that later this month, the UK’s third largest cruise line will be embarking on the biggest and most exciting evolution in the company’s history as it is rebranded as Marella Cruises. The move comes at the same time as Thomson changes to TUI later this month. The rebrand will see the cruise line set sail towards new horizons with sleek, modern additions to the fleet, such as Marella Explorer next year, and exotic new routes in the pipeline.

With Marella Cruises still part of the world of TUI, customers will still be offered fantastic itineraries, great service and entertainment on board all six ships with the friendliest staff at sea. The word Marella, which means ‘shining sea’ in Celtic, was chosen by the company to reflect its spirit of exploration and discovery across the seas. Those choosing a Marella Cruises holiday will be able to take advantage of flights on their doorstep across 22 regional UK airports, as well as a wide Cruise & Stay programme that combines a cruise holiday with a stay at one of more than 140 hotels across 10 destinations worldwide, including the luxurious TUI Sensatori collection.

All the extras that customers have grown to know and love with a Thomson Cruises holiday will still be offered with Marella Cruises, such as tips and service charges included in the price, All Inclusive as standard on Marella Explorer, Marella Discovery and Marella Discovery 2, previously TUI Discovery and TUI Discovery 2, and cruises setting sail at night meaning fewer days spent at sea and more time spent ashore. Thomson Cruises’ industry-renowned staff and crew will also still be a big part of the holiday experience; ensuring passengers receive the warmest of welcomes and the friendliest service at sea throughout their time onboard.

To celebrate the launch of Marella Cruises, the company has unveiled exciting new itineraries across Asia as part of its winter 2018 programme. The newly renamed Marella Discovery will sail to 18 exotic new ports of call on 14 new adult-only itineraries, including Colours of the Far East, departing from Bangkok, Thailand and Enchanting Far East, setting sail from Langkawi in Malaysia. Marella Discovery’s South East Asian adventure will take it to vibrant destinations such as Singapore, Vietnam, Cambodia and Kuala Lumpur. In addition to this lusted-after corner of the world, Marella Discovery will also sail to India, calling at fascinating ports including Mumbai, Mangalore, Mormugao (Goa), Cochin (Kerala) and Colombo (Sri Lanka), and to the Middle East, with highlights including Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Muscat.

For the first time in the company’s history, two ships will be based in Barbados for winter 2018. Marella Explorer will sail its first ever winter season from the Bajan paradise and will be joined by Marella Celebration, operating established itineraries,

Sister company Thomson will also be rebranding later this month, moving to one aligned, global brand as TUI.

I can't wait to be back at sea! 4 weeks today and the @fred.olsencruiselines World Cruise with @travelshopgirl begins! #cruise #travel #selfie at Lamanai, once a major city of the #maya civilization. This was my favourite temple, the Mask Temple. The masks date to the late fifth and early sixth century. You can also find the Jaguar Temple and High Temple at this site. If you're ever in #Belize, I highly recommend a visit to #Lamanai - even the boat ride there is exciting! I visited in February and it was so HOT! I thought I was going to melt! Take water! #cruise #travel #CentralAmerica
