Overview Itinerary
The Ship
Marella Explorer joins the Marella Cruises' fleet in summer 2018 and raises the bar when it comes to size and on board facilities. She features the new all inclusive concept and a plethora of innovative features to suit all ages. The ship's thirteen decks boast a smart and contemporary decor, the unique Sport and Family Deck, eleven restaurants and ten bars, and a vibrant entertainment scene. Work on your tan by the outdoor pool before cooling down in the adjacent whirlpools. Indulge in head to toe pampering in Oceans Spa and Beauty Salon or escape to the comfy Balinese beds at the adult-only The Veranda. Work up a sweat in Oceans Gym, test your swing on the mini golf course, or enjoy interactive action at Gamerzone. There's fun for younger guests at the Splash Pad; while The Hide Out is the perfect hang-out for teens. On top of this, the ship drops anchor in some amazing ports of call, opening up a variety of sightseeing and adventures ashore.

Food
The Market Place presents a choice of international buffet-style delights served from a myriad of food stalls. Latitude 53 spans two decks with floor-to-ceiling windows and offers a menu of traditional culinary treats served to your table. The upper floor is also the place to savour Italian-inspired dishes at Vista. Stop by the food stalls in Snack Shack and tuck into grab 'n' go breakfasts, lunches, and snacks plus refreshments from the drinks station. Transport yourself to sunny Spain with tapas dishes at Tapas@The Mediterranean or indulge in salads and pizzas from the wood-fired oven at Pizzeria@The Mediterranean. The ice creams and toppings served at vintage-style Scoops are perfect if you have a sweet tooth. Treat yourself to high-end culinary experiences at the five a la carte eateries - Surf & Turf Steakhouse specialises in 28-day-aged steaks; cook your own steak and fish dishes on sizzling slates at Hot Stone@The Mediterranean; savour spicy curry and noodle dishes at the pan-Asian Kora La; delight in sushi, sashimi, and nigiri rolls for dinner at Umi Sushi; and enjoy Heston Blumenthal-esque cuisine at the gourmet The Dining Club.

Drink
Lavazza coffees, sweet treats, and coffee liqueurs are served at the bar and open-air terrace of The Coffee Port. Sip ice cold drinks just steps from your sun bed at The Shack. Enjoy pre-dinner drinks in 53 Bar and Bar@The Mediterranean. Head to the speakeasy-style Aperitif after dining at one of the speciality eateries. The eye-catching The Lounge combines a colour-changing bar with a hot-pink piano and trendy ring-shaped seats; the perfect spot to unwind with your favourite tipple and live music. Flare demonstrations, cocktail-making sessions, and 360-degree views add to the fun at Indigo Bar.

Entertainment
Marella Explorer really comes to life after dinner. Experience unique professional shows in the 1000-seat Broadway Show Lounge. The Venue is the place to enjoy dances classes by day followed by live music, virtual bands, family-friendly games shows and interactive Splash Live shows on the LED screens after dark. Snuggle up with popcorn as you watch family-friendly film shows at the indoor cinema. Try your luck at the slot machines and card tables at Indigo Casino. Head to Indigo Club for drinks and late night dancing to the resident DJ.
Day 1: UK - Santa Cruz de Tenerife
Fly from your chosen UK airport to Santa Cruz de Tenerife and be transferred to the port where you will embark on board Marella Explorer.
Day 2: Las Palmas, Gran Canaria
Arrive in Las Palmas, the capital of Gran Canaria. Explore the impressive Santa Ana Cathedral, Plaza de Santa Ana, Palacio Regental, and the Bishop's Palace in Vegueta - the oldest part of the city. Spend the day sunbathing on Playa de Las Canteras, regarded as one of the world's best beaches, or enjoy live Canarian folk music and dancing at Pueblo Canario. Relax in the idyllic surroundings of Parque Doramas or enjoy a leisurely coffee on Plaza Cairasco. Discover national treasures dating back from Roman times at El Museo Canario. Admire the indigenous flora and fauna at the Jardin Botanico Viera y Clavijo, travel to the famous Maspalomas dunes or join a trek to the Bandama Caldera.
Day 3: Santa Cruz de La Palma
Spend time in La Palma's capital of Santa Cruz. Take a walk along Calle Real with its palaces, colonial-style buildings, shops, and squares.

Admire the views from Santuario de la Virgen de las Nieves, step inside Iglesia del Salvador, or uncover ancient exhibits at Museo Insular. Travel south to marvel at the stunning scenery and colourful flora at San Antonio Volcano.
Day 4: Funchal, Madeira
It is very easy to see why Madeira has gained the name of 'The Garden Island'. Lush greenery with an array of tropical fruits, this island is a favourite on many cruise itineraries. Take gondola ride to the mountain village of Monte to experience some of the most breathtaking views of the island, then take the thrilling way down on a local toboggan, winding and bending over the cobbles; this is something you won’t want to miss. For wine lovers, venture out into the vineyards and experience some of the famous wine of the region.
Day 5: At Sea
Day 6: Agadir, Morocco
Sitting at the foot of the Anti-Atlas Mountains alongside the Atlantic Ocean in Morocco; the southern coast resort of Agadir is a vibrant place to visit. Spend time hiking to the hilltop Kasbah to gaze at the medieval architecture and catch a bird’s eye view of the city, which was destroyed by an earthquake and received a modern re-build in the sixties. Wander the avenues lined with palm trees and high-rise hotels which contrast with traditional minarets and bustling bazaars. Visit the beautiful stretch of beach for a peaceful afternoon's sunbathing and swimming. Get up close to the crocodiles at Crocopark east of the city or go on a birdwatching trip amongst the pink flamingoes, ducks, herons, and cormorants at Souss-Massa National Park.
Day 7:Arrecife, Lanzarote
Today the ship drops anchor at Arrecife on the Canarian island of Lanzarote. Two splendid castles form the backdrop to the harbour - the 15th-century Castillo San Gabriel and 17th-century Castillo San Jose. The beautiful golden sands of Playa de Reducto are the perfect place to spend a few hours sunbathing. Venture inland to explore the lunar landscapes of Timanfaya National Park's fire mountains, Cesar Manrique's unique Jardin de Cactus on the outskirts of Guatiza, and Jameos Del Agua cave.
