Marella Cruises' Marella Explorer 2 is a fantastic all-inclusive ship, which can accomodate more than 1,800 passengers. She offers the same standard of service and comfort as her sister ship Marella Explorer, however there is one significant difference; Marella Explorer 2 is reserved for adults-only. 

This important factor has had a significant bearing on the design of the ship. Its focus on adults means that facilities such as the popular social space - The Veranda - is twice the size as on other Marella Cruises ships, allowing guests more opportunity to meet fellow passengers and spend more time sunbathing, sipping on cocktails, and enjoying the fun holiday ambience.

What our customers say

"I booked a Fred Olsen cruise with IGLU last month and was so impressed by the service I received. The staff member I spoke to was Kimberley and she was exemplary. Capable, kind, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. She went through every step of the way calmly and thoroughly. IGLU were recommended to me by friends and I have no hesitation in passing the recommendation along. Well done IGLU and thank you. "

"So easy to deal with, I studied the Cruise I wanted, did my research with different company's and returned to Iglu. I had three quotes matching Iglu’s cost, but with one phone call they beat the price themselves by £40 without me even asking, how easy was that! "
