The swift Marella Spirit (formerly Thomson Spirit) ripples through the waters of the Mediterranean with style and care. Expect the ship's spacious decks to provide with your most relaxing cruise yet.
Formally the Patriot and before that the Nieuw Amsterdam, Thomson Spirit (now known as Marella Spirit) comes with plenty of history and, indeed, spirit. Having sailed around the Americas, Marella Spirit settles down for calming Mediterranean cruises, after receiving an extensive refit in Greece. Offering sizable public rooms, there's certainly no shortage of space onboard Marella Spirit. There's also a great range of restaurants, bars, facilities and entertainment for all ages, making the ship perfect for family cruise holidays.
By way of drinking and dining, Marella Spirit (formerly Thomson Spirit) has more than enough to quench your needs. You could start the day by waking yourself up with a freshly cooked breakfast at The Compass Rose Restaurant, with open seating arrangements allowing you to wander in at any time, meaning you don't have to worry about rushing to get ready first thing in the morning. Lunch could perhaps be a BBQ at the Terrace Grill; there's nothing quite like lazing back with a bite to eat whilst the beautiful sun glistens off the waters around you. For casual, buffet style dining, head to the Lido Restaurant.
For a special treat, try the delicious a la carte options in Sirocco's Restaurant, with spectacular dishes such as lobster thermidor (Specialty restaurant charges apply).
As the long afternoon begins to set, it's time to perhaps build your appetite. Having a tipple at the outdoor Lido Bar will let you watch the sunset by the pool or you could even take a dip before dinner. To end the night, settle back in the trendy Horizons Bar and enjoy the serene ambiance with your favourite cocktail. Other bars include High Spirits with quizzes and bingo, and Raffles for pre-dinner drinks and live piano music.
Of course, Marella Spirit is also packed with plenty of other facilities. Take the Broadway Show Lounge for example, where you can relax back and enjoy the professional West End style shows and top comedy from your favourite UK acts. The sports deck is also an option for the more active cruiser. You can find all sorts of games from bigger sports such as football and basketball, to the smaller, such as table-tennis. Children are also well-catered for onboard Marella Spirit, with the dedicated Kid's Club allowing endless amounts of fun whilst adults potter about and explore the ship.

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! "
