Marella Cruises’ Summer 2024 programme is now on sale, providing customers with more choices in different destinations around the world.

The cruise line has significantly increased its beloved Cruise & Stay hotel portfolio by more than 59% across eight destinations, and has introduced two new ports in Sardinia and Spain. In addition, Turkey itineraries, homeporting out of Marmaris, will be returning after a nine-year break.

As the market leader in Cruise & Stay holidays, Marella Cruises offers its customers a combined package holiday, with the chance to experience life at sea along with a stay at a hotel, which can be tagged on either before or after a cruise. Hand-selected from the TUI range, there is an unbeatable range of properties and durations for customers to choose from. From stylish TUI Blue hotels offering a tailored experience, to its premium Platinum collection, or the option to stay at an authentic Small and Friendly hotel, there is something for everyone.

Chris Hackney, Managing Director of Cruise for TUI UK & I said: “Whether you’re a regular cruiser or new to cruising, Cruise & Stay is an excellent way to holiday. The flexibility allows guests to enjoy the best of both worlds, giving them the chance explore several destinations on a cruise, but also the opportunity to spend some time ashore in a destination of their choice.

“All our properties are researched and handpicked from TUI’s range to best suit customers’ preferences, and there’s more than 200 hotels to choose from. What’s more, all transfers are included so customers can sit back and enjoy a hassle-free journey from the airport, ship and hotel.

In addition, Marella Cruises will be returning to Marmaris, Turkey with itineraries including; Ottoman Odyssey, Ancient Icons, Undiscovered Aegean and Aegean Jewels**, where guests will get the chance to visit some of the most popular hotspots in Cyprus, Turkey, Greece and Israel. Moreover, Marella Explorer will call at new ports, Oristano in Sardinia and Motril in Spain at the end of Winter, before starting its Summer 24 sailings in Corfu.
