LATEST NEWS FROM THOMSON CRUISES

The change of name will coincide with Thomson’s transition to Tui later this month.

Thomson Cruises - the UK’s third largest – described the move as “the biggest and most exciting evolution in the company’s history”.

Tui Discovery and Tui Discovery 2 will become known as Marella Discovery and Marella Discovery 2. The new Tui Explorer ship arriving in 2018, will now be called Marella Explorer.

The name Marella, which means “shining sea” in Celtic, was chosen by the company “to reflect its spirit of exploration and discovery across the seas”.

New itineraries across Asia will be released as part of the winter 2018 programme to celebrate the launch of Marella Cruises

Marella Discovery will sail to 18 new ports of call on 14 new adult-only itineraries, including Colours of the Far East, departing from Bangkok, Thailand and Enchanting Far East, setting sail from Langkawi in Malaysia.

Marella Discovery’s South East Asian adventure will take it to Singapore, Vietnam, Cambodia and Kuala Lumpur. The ship will also sail to India, calling at ports including Mumbai, Mangalore, Mormugao (Goa), Cochin (Kerala) and Colombo (Sri Lanka), and to the Middle East.

Elsewhere, for the first time in the company’s history, two ships will be based in Barbados for winter 2018. Marella Explorer will sail its first ever winter season from there and will be joined by Marella Celebration.

I trust that they will do it properly and carry out a traditional renaming ceremony to get the approval of Poseidon!
