Marella to cruise from Southampton and Newcastle this summer

Guests will need to have had both Covid-19 vaccines before boarding

Marella Cruises is to embark on a programme of cruises from the UK this summer, some of which go on sale tomorrow (16 April).

The sailings, on board Marella Exlorer and Marella Explorer 2, will depart from Southampton and Newcastle respectively.

The Southampton sailings, on board Marella Explorer, will commence on June 25. The Newcastle cruises will begin on July 10 onboard the adults-only Marella Explorer 2. The Newcastle sailings will be on sale by the end of the month.

Anyone aged 18-years and older will be required to have had both Covid-19 jabs at least seven days before travelling. All under 18-year-olds, excluding infants under the age of two who will not be able to sail as they are exempt from testing, will be asked to have a lateral flow test. All guests must also provide proof of a negative lateral flow test before boarding the ships at the start of the cruise.

Chris Hackney, managing director of cruise TUI UK & Ireland, said: “After pausing our operations for more than year, we are delighted to announce our UK summer programme 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 has 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.”
