Marella Dream undergoes early retirement

Published on : Saturday, October 3, 2020

Marella Cruises has decided to retire Marella Dream from its fleet after a decade of service. The move comes in a time when the cruise sector is struggling to survive in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and the TUI-owned line is planning to reshape its cruise programme for the coming seasons.  All Dream sailings due to take place will be cancelled and all affected customers are being notified at present.

All guests with bookings for Marella Dream for next summer will have their booking automatically moved to Marella Discovery, which will now sail from Palma instead of Port Canaveral, Florida. As a consequence, Marella has also made the decision to cancel all USA sailings for Marella Discovery next summer.

Chris Hackney, Managing Director, Marella Cruises said in his statement that with the ongoing travel restrictions for U.K. cruise lines still in place, the company has taken the difficult decision to reshape the cruise programme for the upcoming seasons. He shared that the decision would mean that Marella Dream takes an early retirement after ten years of service with Marella Discovery being redeployed from the U.S. to Europe.

He also shared that the company is aware of the continued uncertainty surrounding travel and has decided to offer increased flexibility to give customers added peace of mind so that they can amend their cruises to any TUI holiday on sale for free. He said that the cruise line is aware that customers look forward to their holidays  and maybe now more so than ever  and mentioned that the latest decisions can mean that customers can still plan and get excited for their dream holiday at a later date.
