Deck 8

Deck 8 onboard Marella Dream is where it’s all happening! There’s so much to do – from catching a show at the Broadway Show Lounge to pampering yourself at the Oceans Spa and Beauty Salon.

It’s also home to handy areas like Reception and Destination Services. There’s a team of friendly staff manning reception 24/7, so there’s always someone to answer your query or have something sorted out.

To get the most out of the ports on your itinerary, head to Destination Services. The team here can help you by providing maps and handy info on the destinations you’re set to visit, as well as booking excursions for you or giving you guidance if you’re exploring places on your own.

Mostly, this deck is all about entertainment and relaxation. It’s got a variety of bars and lounges for you to choose from, all with their own unique atmosphere.

Looking for somewhere quiet to enjoy a coffee and partake in a bit chit-chat? The Explorers’ Lounge is located mid-ship and is the perfect for some downtime.

The Coffee Port is located inside this lounge, serving the likes of cappuccinos, cake and ice-cream. At night however, it becomes a cool cocktail corner!

It’s one of the ship’s Wi-Fi zones too, so you can check in with the family back home or upload a sneaky holiday pic. By night, you’ll be treated to the sounds of the resident pianist tinkling the piano.

Also situated nearby is Tides, a convenient place to meet new-found friends. Singer soloists frequent here on an evening to get you up and moving on the dance floor, and there’s a grand piano here too for good measure.

Next to Tides on Deck 8 is the Card Room. If you fancy challenging your partner to a game of Scrabble or perhaps your friends to a bit of Trivial Pursuit, this is the place to go.

Also located mid-ship is Browser’s Corner. Dark-wood panelling makes for a sophisticated library feel, and you’ll find the shelves adorned with a variety of books for you to read.

There’s also daily Sudoku challenges and jigsaws available, as well as PCs and Wi-Fi so you can go online.

At the very back of the ship on Deck 8 is The Water’s Edge, a chic bar that’s open day and night. It has a stylish outdoor terrace, where you can take in stunning ocean views with your favourite cocktail at hand.

By night however, this lounge is home to a late night disco and casino. Head here for post-dinner drinks before having a flutter on the roulette table.

When it’s time to pamper yourself, the Oceans Spa and Beauty Salon is at the ready with a line-up of treatments. Go for a new hairdo or unwind with a mineral mud wrap and massage. It’s just heavenly!

M Club is also on Deck 8. Open for three to 11 year olds, little ones can expect all sorts of fun from arts and crafts to movie nights and pyjama parties. There’s even-mocktail making sessions!

Adjacent to M Club are 10 cabins – the only ones on this deck – nine of which are Balcony Cabins and one that’s a Single Balcony Cabin.

These are the only Balcony Cabins on the ship – aside from the Suites – and they’re right in the heart of the ship. If you’re wanting a cabin that’s only a stroll away from most of the facilities on the ship – these cabins are the way to go.

The balconies are kitted out with comfy chairs and a table, so you can rewind in the comfort of your own space and enjoy watching the world go by as you sail from one destination to the next.

Along from these cabins you’ll find the Broad Street Shops – from jewellery to fashion and cosmetics, there’s always something to tempt you in these boutiques. And with up to 50% savings on selected lines, it’d be rude not to!

The Photo Gallery is nearby too, which is the place to go to purchase any memorable photos you’ve had taken whilst on your cruise. The only trouble is deciding which ones to keep!

At the front of the ship on Deck 8 you’ve got the ever-popular Medusa Bar and Lounge. Being Marella Dream’s biggest lounge, you can expect something a little extra special.

Floor-to-ceiling windows invite you in, with live bands and spotlight cabaret taking centre stage. Get ready for activities such as bingo and game shows too, with a dance floor in prime position for when you’re ready to have a little boogie.

And last, but by no means least, you’ll find the Broadway Show Lounge at the very front of this deck. Set across two storeys, entertainment really comes to life here.

Prepare to be blown away by catchy musicals, comedy shows and UK guest acts. There’s two shows every night – one early and one late – that can vary from West-End style numbers to classic eighties sing-alongs.

One thing’s for sure – there’s never a dull moment on this deck!
