If you didn’t know already, Marella Cruises won the ‘Best for Entertainment’ award at the 2018 Wave Awards! That means the cruise line can proudly boast that they’re providing passengers with some of the finest top quality shows and experiences at sea. You’re in expert hands!

So, we thought it only made sense to take a look at what you can look forward to seeing onboard Marella Explorer. Their entertainment is bound to impress – from Broadway-style showstoppers to family favourites and something just for the kids too.

Marella Explorer shows

As well as these exciting new shows, guests can look forward to ‘The Emulator’ – the world’s first multi-touch DJ system. This will allow passengers to see first-hand what the DJ is doing through a transparent touchscreen based in Bar Indigo. Definitely something different!

Marella Explorer Entertainment Venues

Along with amazing shows come phenomenal entertainment venues, from the classy casino to their first pub at sea – the possibilities are endless.

Broadway Show Lounge

The proof is in the name, the Broadway Show Lounge is where you’ll catch a superb show. Holding 1,000 guests and with waiter service on hand, it’s a great way to spend your night.

The Lounge

For style and sophistication, say hello to The Lounge, a relaxing atmosphere to grab a cocktail or two whilst listening to the sweet sound of the live pianist.


If it’s pre-dinner entertainment you’re after, then 53 is the place to go. It’s also a great place to stop for a drink or two to get your night started with a sparkle.

The Shack

Marella Cruises are well known for their Captain’s pool parties, and The Shack is the place to be for frozen cocktails and pool-side pints as the party gets underway.

Bar @ The Mediterranean

A carefully crafted list of cocktails lies in the Bar @ The Mediterranean, and of course with a Mediterranean speciality.

Indigo Casino

We hope you’ve been practising your poker face, because the Indigo Casino is where you’ll need lady luck on your side.

Indigo Club

This is where the real party is at – dance floor and DJ booth at the ready for a night out ’til the early hours of the morning!


Aperitif provides that added luxury for an extra special evening, serving an endless flow of Champagne and Prosecco.

Squid & Anchor

For your typical British evening, head to this incredible venue where bands play live and you can get competitive in the traditional pub quiz.
