Marella Discovery

Sailing far and wide to exciting destinations, Marella Discovery delights guests with exotic sailings and attractive itineraries, as well as a family-friendly experience onboard. Being one of the largest of Marella Cruises' ships, she carries 1,800 passengers, yet continues to offer guests an intimate atmosphere with a strong community feel and dedicated service. Perfect for that rich destination-focussed experience that Marella Cruises have established, adventure and exploration are guaranteed, with fewer days at sea and all-inclusive cruising for a hassle free holiday.

As one of the largest cruise ships in the Marella Cruises fleet, diners onboard Marella Discovery are truly spoilt for choice. Diners will always find a table at the main restaurant 47 Degrees, a large venue spanning two storeys with a cool Italian restaurant featured on the second floor, offering spectacular views, while Islands is a buffet venue featuring global cuisine that will make your mouthwater. Grab something to go from the festival-inspired Snack Shack, deli sandwiches from The Glass House - which becomes a tapas restaurant in the evening - or traditional pub grub from the Squid & Anchor.

As well as the above complimentary options, guests can also enjoy speciality dining during their cruise for an additional cost:

  • Prime cuts of meat and fresh seafood at Surf & Turf Steakhouse
  • Made-to-order sushi at the Sushi Bar
  • Pan-Asian delights at Kora La

Daytime Entertainment

Ideal for active cruisers, the popular Marella Discovery cruise ship is bursting with things to see and do during sea days, including The Wall for adventurous outdoor escapades to Mini Golf for some healthy competition. Gamers can get their fix in the Gamerzone and retail therapy is available for those in need at the Broad Street Shops. For something completely different, check out the Breakout and Escape Room. This action-packed activity involves teamwork, mental agility and quick thinking as you and your teammates find clues and solve puzzles to escape the room before time is up.

Evening Entertainment

When it comes to entertainment during your evenings on a Marella Discovery cruise, there really is something for everyone to enjoy. Live musicals and shows at the impressive Broadway Show Lounge are not to be missed, while the Live Room boasts piano playing before transforming into a late night dance floor. Other venues include:

  • Atrium Bar- sip on a glass of wine, bubbly or beer at this central bar
  • Live Casino- try and hit the jackpot at the stylish onboard casino featuring game tables and slot machines
  • Deck Bar- breathe in the sea air with your favourite drink in hand at this al fresco bar
  • Bar Eleven- from contemporary cocktails to discos, this lively venue has everything you need for a night you won't forget


One of the most famous cruise lines for families, children’s facilities are in abundance with Marella. From the Baby Centre to Splash Live, the Kid's Club to the cool Teen Hideout, children and young adults are well catered for onboard:

  • Baby Centre- have fun with your little ones at this dedicated onboard space which also hosts interactive classes for parents and babies
  • M Club- a club for 3-11 year olds which features activities such as arts and crafts and movie nights
  • Hideout- just for teens, this parent-free retreat has everything to keep older kids entertained from morning until evening

The Oceans Spa and Beauty Salon provides staple favourites such as manicures and hair styling plus rejuvenating spa treatments from facials to full body massage, meaning that you can leave your holiday feeling brand new.

If you'd like to stay fit and healthy during your cruise, Marella Discovery provides the perfect workout. Whether you'd like to lift weights in the gym, take a jog around the track out on deck or head to an exercise class, getting active on holiday has never been easier.
