Marella Cruises has appoint The Experience Department (ted) as its entertainment supplier for its new ship, Marella Voyager.
They have also been re-awarded contracts with Marella Explorer and Marella Explorer 2, meaning they will now provide the UK’s third largest cruise line’s entire fleet with a bespoke package of entertainment.
The programme will include immersive, actor-led experiences; new arts and crafts classes; new themed deck parties; eight brand-new theatre shows and more.
Robin Breese-Davies, ted CEO, said: “Our shows have created an amazing reputation thanks to our incredible talent, sophisticated technology and AV, and our support teams, all of which is part of delivering amazing experiences to the loyal Marella guests.
“We have a wealth of experience in the cruise industry, and we’re excited to be a growing partner for Marella Cruises at such an exciting time for the business as they expand their fleet, and we are looking forward to producing specially curated shows, content and activities for the ships.”
Anna Lewis-Laverty, general manager of customer experience for Marella Cruises said: “We are delighted to be renewing our partnership with ted as the entertainment provider onboard our Explorer ships and extending this to our newest ship to the fleet, Voyager.
“Providing our customers excellent entertainment with plenty of variety is so important to us. We know that customers are going to love the offering and we’re very much looking forward to working together.”
