TUI’s Marella Cruises have finally revealed their brand-new UK itineraries this summer which go on sale tomorrow (16th April).
The company had confirmed last month their plans to join the list of cruise lines sailing around the UK this summer but have withheld details until now.
Marella Explorer will sail from Southampton from June 25th, sailing to new ports of call including, Belfast, Dublin and Liverpool. With seven new UK itineraries during the summer season it is perfect for those looking to explore via sea the history and culture of some amazing British cities and towns.
Marella Explorer 2, the cruise lines adult-only ship, will also offer UK sailings from Newcastle from July 10th, with even more UK ports of call.
To ensure the safety of both customers and crew will have in place vaccination and testing requirements to sail from the UK this summer.
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.
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 programme and welcome our wonderful customers back onboard our ships.”
“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.”
Welcome to the UK Sailing Club Marella, we look forward to welcoming you back to the seas.
