Marella Cruises to retire Marella Dream after a decade of service
Marella Cruises today announced that after a decade of operation, it is removing the 1986-built Marella Dream from its fleet.
All Dream sailings scheduled to take place from Oct. 26 and beyond will be cancelled and all customers affected will be informed in a statement, Marella said.
Those booked for summer 2021 on Marella Dream will automatically have their booking transferred to Marella Discovery, the sailing company that will now sail from Palma instead of Port Canaveral, Florida, covering the Mediterranean routes of the Marella Dream.
“With the ongoing travel restrictions for UK cruise lines still in place, we’ve taken the difficult decision to reshape our cruise programme for the upcoming seasons. That means an early retirement for Marella Dream after ten years of service and the redeployment of Marella Discovery from the US to Europe. We appreciate the continued uncertainty surrounding travel and, to give our customers added peace of mind, we’re offering increased flexibility to amend their cruises to any TUI holiday on sale for free," Chris Hackney, Managing Director of Marella Cruises stated.
