    In October 2018, we’ll be saying goodbye to the longest serving ship in the Marella fleet, as Marella Spirit embarks on its last sailing. The ship has welcomed onboard thousands of passengers over the years, and is a firm favourite with Marella customers. So, we couldn’t let the occasion pass without celebrating. We’ve made sure Marella Spirit’s final sailing on the 21st of October will be one to remember…

    Which itinerary is Marella Spirit sailing?

    Join Marella Spirit’s final sailing and you’ll be spending seven nights cruising around Spain’s sunny shores. You’ll be ticking off big hitters like Malaga, Barcelona, and Valencia, plus a stop off in Toulon in France. Expect impressive Gothic churches, open-air museums, and sleepy villages. And, you’ll be squeezing in a bit of extra sunshine before the winter, too, as temperatures in Spain during October sit at a still-toasty 25°C.

    What’s happening onboard?

    During the cruise expect parties, live saxophone music, and the opportunity to get all dressed up at our nautical themed fancy dress party. Whether you prefer a stripy shirt or a sailor costume, we want to see your best seafaring looks. And, you can look forward to a big bash to close out the week with our Fond Farewell celebration.

    What else can I expect?

    How about a live music by Eighties cover band Wild Boys? If you don’t manage to catch them onboard our Electric Sunsets cruise in September, you won’t want to miss them on Marella Spirit’s last sailing. Plus, we’ve got a few surprises up our sleeves – but you’ll have to join us onboard to find out what they are…
