MARELLA Cruises

Marella Cruises (formerly Thomson Cruises) is a British cruise line operated by TUI Cruises, offering cruise holidays around Europe, the Caribbean, and Asia. The company had initially entered the cruise market in 1973, but due to rising fuel costs the venture was terminated in 1976. In 1995, Thomson restarted their cruise line after their competitor Airtours had made a successful entry in the cruise business under their Sun Cruises brand. On 9 October 2017, TUI Group announced that Thomson Cruises would be rebranded in late October 2017 as Marella Cruises.

 

Marella is considered part of the Royal Caribbean conglomerate because it’s part of the TUI Group, in which Royal Caribbean owns 50% of its shares.

 

All ships on the current Marella fleet came from other cruise lines, mostly Holland America Line, TUI Cruises and Celebrity.
