Ship
Marella Explorer 2
Overview

Marella Explorer 2 is the sister ship to Marella Explorer, so you can expect some similar qualities, like a range of restaurants, a Champneys Spa and Indigo - a chic bar-club-casino space. But there's one big difference between them - Marella Explorer 2's reserved for adults..

Dining

Surf & Turf Steakhouse

This place does what it says on the tin, specialising in all things meat and seafood. The menu stars various cuts of steak and you can watch the chef cook yours on the open grill. The interiors are inspired by the meaty menu, as well, with chopping board artwork and leather booth seating. A cover charge applies for dining here.

Kora La

You'll feel like you've switched continents when you dine at this restaurant. Oriental-style lanterns and paintings are paired with a pan-Asian menu of curries and noodle dishes. You'll pay a cover charge to eat here.

The Dining Club

This fine dining restaurant was made for foodies. You'll be treated to high-end cuisine, making it the ideal spot for an extra special evening. There's a charge to dine here.

The Market Place

You can watch the chefs whip up around-the-world dishes at this buffet restaurant. It's stocked with lots of different food stalls, hence its name, The Market Place.

The Mediterranean

On Marella Explorer, this place combines pizza, tapas and Portuguese meat skewers. There'll be a slightly different offering onboard Marella Explorer 2, so watch this space.

Bars & Entertainment

Squid & Anchor

This pub at sea is a modern take on a traditional British watering hole. As such, it's got a decent range of draught beers and some outside space. Plus, this place is the home of a live band, quiz nights and a couple of gaming machines.

Broadway Show Lounge

This show lounge is big enough to rival a Broadway theatre. And that's not all it's got going for it. There are brand-new shows on offer, plus it's waiter service, so you can get a drink without missing a thing.

Indigo Casino

If you're feeling lucky, you can try out the slot machines and card tables at the Indigo Casino.

Indigo Club

You'll find the club in the middle of Indigo. It flaunts a dancefloor and a DJ booth, as well as an extra bar.

Movies by Moonlight

You can watch classic and modern films under the stars at this open-air cinema.

Activities

Champneys Spa

Like at any other Champneys Spa, you can book in for treatments, like facials, body wraps and massages. Plus, there's a beauty salon, a relaxation room, made-for-two suites and treatment cabins with hot tubs. There's also a sauna with floor-to-ceiling windows.

The Veranda

Cocoon chairs and Balinese beds give The Veranda its luxe feel. It's split over two decks, and you can order drinks straight to your lounger.

Broad Street Shops

When the ship's at sea, it's time to hit the shops. The onboard boutiques are stocked with everyday essentials and loads of duty-free products, including perfume, jewellery and souvenirs.

Destination Services

If you want to find out more about our ports of call and excursions, come and chat to our Destination Services team. They've got guides and maps to help you find your way around. And you can book your next cruise with them, too. You'll find them onboard by Reception.

The Coffee Port

If you're in need of a caffeine boost, this place will do the trick. Lavazza coffee and sweet treats are served here - courtesy of our in-house chocolatier. Plus, it's a great people-watching spot, since it overlooks the atrium. Time your visit right, and you can sip your coffee to a soundtrack of live piano music. A small charge applies here.

Reception

Reception is the place to go for any queries, currency exchange and wake-up calls. Plus, it's open around-the-clock.
