Marella Cruises has revealed details of its brand new itineraries sailing UK shores in summer 2021.

The Marella Explorer will call at Dover as part of its new domestic cruises, which are “perfect for those looking to explore via sea the history and culture of some amazing British cities and towns.”

Sonia Limbrick, Head of Cruise at the Port of Dover said:

“We are delighted to be welcoming Marella to Dover in the summer for the first time and look forward to sharing Kent’s wonderful sights and culture as soon as guests step foot in Dover.

There’s no better welcome than the stunning view of the white cliffs and Dover Castle before exploring the other charming sites of Kent, so I have no doubt that Marella’s calls here will be a huge highlight of her inspiring British Isles itineraries.”

Managing Director of Cruise TUI UK & I, Chris Hackney said:

“After pausing our operations for more than year, we are delighted to announce our UK summer program and welcome our wonderful customers back onboard our ships. The safety and well-being of both our crew and passengers remains our priority which is why we have vaccination and testing protocols for all sailings from UK ports this summer.”

“Domestic sailings are a great step for the cruise industry and have given us the opportunity to take our customers to new destinations full of culture and history whilst still being close to home. We’re looking forward to this new adventure on the British seas and are dedicated to making sure our customers have the most memorable and exciting cruise with us,” he added.

The Marella Explorer will sail seven new UK itineraries during the summer 2021 season.
