Marella Cruises has officially christened its newest ship, Marella Voyager in Malaga, Spain at a launching ceremony last night featuring two-time Brit Awards winner, singer and songwriter, Becky Hill.
Becky surprised guests with a 45-minute set, playing many of her much-loved hits including ’Afterglow’ and ’Wish You Well’, plus her latest single ‘Side Effects’.
The ceremony was also attended by the ship’s two Godmothers, Tatyana Olkhovska, Chief Purser at Marella Cruises and Jacqui Nobile, Senior Destination Services Operations Manager who released the champagne bottle to christen the ship.
Marella Voyager comes with new venues onboard, including Silver Fork offering British classics with a twist; a new Mexican restaurant, Abuela’s and an out-of-the-way bar with some surprises called The Exchange.

“Marella Voyager is part of our strategic vision to continually modernise and grow our fleet.
“We pride ourselves on continuing to offer more for our customers, whether that’s new ships, new destinations, our all-inclusive as a standard offering and fantastic, friendly service.”
