Marella Dream

About This Ship

Sailing onboard Marella Dream is so much more than lounging by the pool or sampling cocktails at the bar. Tastefully designed and packed with activities, the dining onboard this ship alone could fill your voyage with a new dish every day. Begin your days at the Coffee Port for a jolt to the senses, then round off at Orion’s for stylish multicultural fare or hot stone steaks at the open-air Terrace Grill. There’s also Kora La to consider, a new addition specialising in pan-Asian flavours.

If you’re sailing with the family, the kids are certain to be swept up into adventure. They get their own pool, as well as a stage school where they can tread the boards and learn some theatrics. Restaurants throughout the ship have plenty of options for little ones, and the Kids’ Club has age-specific activities that flex creative muscles and inspire future friendships. A cruise onboard this vessel promises to enrich your little ones as much as it entertains them.

The decks of Marella Dream afford splendid views of your surroundings, from an ocean sunset to the next exotic getaway on the horizon. In terms of after-dark fun, you’re spoilt for choice, thanks to the musicals and tribute acts of the two-storey Broadway Show Lounge.

A more low-key experience can be had over the tickled ivories of the easy-going Tides Lounge at the cruise ship’s heart, or for something a little more exerting, upbeat dancing and drinking is what you’ll find at The Water’s Edge, the onboard nightclub.

To rejuvenate the mind and body alike, the spa, saunas and the gymnasium all appeal too, making Marella Dream the perfect cruise ship for those of you looking to relax and unwind after a pleasant day at port.

Marella Cruises don’t think tips and service charges should cost you extra, so they've included them in the price. You’re not expected to tip any of their crew – unless you want to, of course.

Plenty of space and a brilliant selection of facilities - that's what you can expect on Marella Dream. The restaurants, lounges and bars have been treated to a stylish makeover. As for the entertainment, plush show lounge sets the scene for glam West End-style shows and UK comedy acts. Elsewhere, there’s plenty of room for live music and daytime games for the whole family.
