Marella Cruises launches first literature themed Atlantic sailing

Marella Explorer 2 will return to Europe next spring on a literally-themed Atlantic crossing
Marella Explorer 2, sailing in the Caribbean this coming winter, will return to Europe next spring on a 16-night  book lovers themed cruise across the Atlantic.

Sailing from Montego Bay, Jamaica on April 19, 2022 this tailor-made all-inclusive cruise on adults-only Marella Explorer 2 features guest talks and interactive workshops with authors and entertainers before finishing in Dubrovnik, Croatia.  

Chris Hackney, Managing Director of Marella Cruises said; ‘We have had successes with our Electric Sunsets themed cruises, and we are excited to introduce our first themed cruise for literature fans next year.’

Authors and entertainers including Sarah Cruddas, famous for her knowledge of Space exploration, Tony Strange known for his laugh out loud entertainment with well-known impressions and crime novelist Barbara Nadel, will all share their stories and some will run guided workshops, at no extra cost.  

Marella Cruises resumes international fly-cruising on Marella Discovery from September 3, 2021 and Marella Explorer 2 starts  panish sailings from September 22 before heading to the Caribbean in November, homeporting in Montego Bay for the winter season.
