Corfu blooms with vibrant flowers, earning its title as the Emerald Isle. From golden beaches to lush landscapes and charming villages, every corner beckons with picturesque beauty.

In Heraklion, Crete, tradition meets modernity in a bustling mix. Pavement cafés, bars, and chic boutiques line the streets, while hidden alleys reveal glimpses of traditional life.

Santorini captivates with its quintessential Greek allure. Whitewashed houses cling to cliffs, complemented by vivid blue domes against the azure sea—an enchanting sight to behold.

Kusadasi offers serene beach days or a journey through history at Ephesus, the Mediterranean's best-preserved classical city. Marvel at the intricate architecture of the Library of Celsus and the grandeur of the ancient theatre.

Athens, a treasure trove of culture, dazzles with its ancient wonders. Scale the Acropolis for panoramic views and behold the majestic Parthenon, a testament to the city's rich heritage.

Entertainment onboard

The entertainment onboard Marella Explorer doesn’t disappoint. Not only does it have the biggest ever Broadway Show Lounge, it also boasts the flash, new Indigo bar, club and casino. Alternatively, you can listen to live music in The Lounge – a stylish space with a bright-pink piano and colour-changing bar.

The Lounge

A colour-changing feature bar, hot-pink piano and funky, ring-shaped seats take their place in this eye-catching lounge bar. You can admire the views, while listening to the soothing soundtrack of the live pianist.

53

The clue’s in the name here. This bar is right next to Latitude 53, so it’s perfectly placed for some pre-dinner drinks.

The Shack

This deck bar provides cool-down drinks, like frozen cocktails, in between sunbathing. You’ll find it just above Snack Shack, overlooking the pool.

Bar @ The Mediterranean

This feature bar wraps around The Mediterranean – running from the inside to the outside. It’s the place to come for Mediterranean specialities, as well as your usual drinks and frozen cocktails. If you choose a seat outside, you'll get impressive sea views, since the terrace is positioned right at the back of the ship.

Indigo Bar

Indigo lays claim to the longest bar in the fleet. Flare demonstrations and cocktail-making sessions are often on the cards here. There's also plenty of seating around the bar’s edge, where you can take in the 360-degree views – day or night. After dark, the menus light up, showing off around-the-world themed cocktails, like Thai Punch and Jamaican Me Crazy.

Broadway Show Lounge

With a capacity of 1,000 people, this show lounge is big enough to rival a Broadway theatre. And that’s not all it’s got going for it. There are 12 brand-new shows on offer, plus you'll be handed a drink on arrival.

Indigo Casino

If you’re feeling lucky, you can try out the slot machines and card tables at the Indigo Casino.

Indigo Club

You’ll find the club in the middle of Indigo, flaunting a dancefloor and a DJ booth. It's where silent discos and Eighties or Nineties-themed nights take place.

Aperitif

Champagne and Prosecco are on the menu at this speakeasy-style bar. It’s a great spot to head before or after a meal at one of the speciality restaurants.

Squid & Anchor

Our first pub at sea is a modern take on a traditional British boozer. There are two bars to pick from – one deals in premium gins and whiskies, which are chargeable. Plus, this place is home to a live band and quiz nights.
