Marella Cruises’ winter 2021-22 sailings go on sale today (Thursday) with new itineraries in the Caribbean and Asia.

The five-ship Tui line plans 18 new ports of call including Boston, Halong Bay in Vietnam and San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Fly-cruise departures from Hong Kong and Singapore include new ports of call such as Manila in the Philippines, Muara in Brunei and Da Nang, Vietnam.

Marella Discovery will operate a new itinerary to the US Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico while Marella Discovery 2 will call in Canada for the first time.

A new itinerary by Marella Dream and Marella Explorer departs in November 2021 from Tenerife and visits the Canary islands of La Palma, Lanzarote and Gran Canaria plus an overnight in Funchal, Madeira. Playa Blanca will be added to the programme as the first new port of call in the Canary Islands since winter 2016.

Other itineraries for next winter include ‘Arabian Sunrise’ visiting Sri Lanka, Mumbai and Oman sailing in April 2022.

A North American itinerary to Canada includes an overnight stay in Boston on a departure by Marella Discovery from Port Canaveral in Florida. Ports of call include Saint John, Charlotte Town, Quebec, Sageunay and Sept-Iles before finishing in Barbados on October 24, 2021.

An overnight stay in Havana features on a Marella Explorer 2 Caribbean itinerary.

The third-biggest UK cruise line recently confirmed an extension of its pause in operations as a result of the continuing travel restrictions.

However, the company says it continues to work hard in preparation to welcome guests back on board.

The line’s ‘Marella Promise’ includes flexibility for all bookings made between July 23 and September 30. If customers no longer wish to travel on their cruise, they can have one free amend to move to a later date.

Managing director Chris Hackney said: “We’re delighted to share the details of our winter 2021 programme and are really excited to have added even more choice for our customers with amazing destinations and exotic new itineraries as we continue to take customers to places they really want to explore.

“We’re dedicated to making sure our customers and crew are safe whilst they have the most memorable and exciting cruise with us.

“We can’t wait to finally take to the seas and show the world to our cruisers again, as soon as we’re able to.”
