UK-based Marella Cruises has launched its newest cruise ship, Marella Explorer, following the vessel’s refurbishment process. 

The launching ceremony was held in Palma, Majorca, on May 17.

Speaking on the occasion, Chris Hackney, Managing Director of Marella Cruises, said: “The launch of Marella Explorer marks an exciting time for us as she is the first ship to officially launch under the Marella Cruises name.”

The 76,998-ton Marella Explorer, previously known as Mein Schiff 1, underwent a four-week refurbishment in Cadiz, Spain.

At 265.5 meters long and 32.2 meters wide, Marella Explorer is the biggest ship welcomed so far into the Marella Cruises fleet. The 1,924 capacity ship (double occupancy) boasts 962 cabins and spans 13 decks.

The cruise vessel set sail on its maiden customer voyage on May 19 to visit a variety of ports in the Mediterranean such as Villefranche, Barcelona and Naples.

Marella Cruises, part of TUI UK and Ireland and TUI Group/World of TUI, is the third largest cruise line in the UK. Following the recent addition, its fleet now comprises six ships — Marella Explorer, Marella Discovery, Marella Discovery 2, Marella Dream, Marella Celebration, and Marella Spirit.
