In summer 2017, Marella Discovery 2 joined our fleet. Marella Discovery 2 is the sister ship to Marella Discovery - and this is why their names are so similar. Having two ships means you're able to pair a wider choice of itineraries with the exciting features offered by this larger, more contemporary style of vessel. These include an outdoor cinema, a rock climbing wall, a minigolf course, an indoor pool and a glossy atrium. Not to mention the range of bars, excellent dining scene and night-time shows enhanced by up-to-the-minute technology. Just like Marella Discovery, Marella Discovery 2 is All Inclusive as standard. So, drinks, including prosecco and cider, meals in a selection of restaurants and most onboard activities are included in the cruise price. Flights and tips are both part of the package, too.
Bars and Entertainment
With so many entertainment options, no night onboard's the same as the last. The Broadway Show Lounge delivers on West-End style numbers. Then there's Venue, which plays host to family-friendly game shows and performances from virtual bands. Movies by Moonlight takes over out on deck, while live musicians showcase the acoustics in the Atrium Bar. As the night draws to a close, head to the Live Room for a session on the dancefloor.
Broadway Show Lounge
Plush seating and an 800-plus capacity give the ship's main entertainment venue professional credentials. We have 11 unique shows, including Beatz Interactive, a hi-tech dance piece featuring LED-lit costumes.
Movies by Moonlight
In a Thomson Cruises first, we're premiering an open air cinema. It means you can watch classic movies and the latest box office hits under the stars. Blankets, popcorn, and hot chocolate will be available from the nearby bar.
Activity-wise, we've not forgotten about our youngest guests. While children head to the Kids' club, you can take your under-threes along to our new Babytainment classes for parents and babies. Each free session brings something different to the table, from nursery rhyme sing-alongs to baby ballet. They're educational, too - take Sing & Sign, for instance, where little ones can follow in the footsteps of Mr Tumble from CBeebies, by learning Makaton sign language. The sessions take place all year round, with at least one per day.
Come sundown, little ones will love this high-energy interactive show, where our friendly characters lead songs and games. Splash Live takes place throughout the high season.
The stylish casino is open until late, and features blackjack tables, and fruit machines. If you're a beginner, ask the croupiers about getting some lessons in. You've also got the entertainment - and the bar - in the Live Room to accompany you while you're having a flutter.More Choices

Spa & Fitness
Oceans Spa and Beauty Salon
If you fancy getting glammed up for the weekly dress to impress night, pop in to the salon for a manicure or hair up-do. Alternatively, spoil yourself in the spa - it's got a string of treatment cabins where you can indulge in a full body massage or a rejuvenating facial.
Enjoy a workout in the fleet's largest gym, before working up an even bigger sweat in the sauna.
This just-for-adults sunbathing area is located at the back of the ship, so you can relax with views of the horizon.
Burn some calories on a run around deck 10.
If you're not feeling well, pay a visit to the Medical Centre. It's open between 8am and 10am and 6pm and 8pm.Pools
- Indoor Pool
- Main Pool
There are seven restaurants to choose from. There's full waiter service at the main restaurant, which serves up traditional dishes with a modern twist. Plus, there are eateries specialising in a particular cuisine - think succulent steak or pan-Asian fare. There's plenty of choice in the way of drinking spots, as well, whether you're looking for a pot of tea or a flute of prosecco.
Spicy tuna rolls, salmon sashimi and seabass nigiri are all on the menu at this sushi bar, which is tucked inside Kora La. Plus, you can wash it down with beers from all over Asia - think Tiger, Cobra and Singha. There's a charge to dine here, and you'll need to book, too.
Marella Discovery 2's main eatery is a big, stylish venue, finished in the colours of the sand and the sea. Daytime meals here come with a side-order of sea views, thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows, and a grand double staircase leads up to a separate eatery.
The Glass House
This place has a split personality, but for all the right reasons. By day, it deals in deli-style light bites and freshly-squeezed juices. Come sundown, the venue turns into casual restaurant with a tapas-style menu. Plus, you can cook your own steaks on hot stones, for an extra charge.
Big buffet spreads are laid out in this restaurant, with show-cooking stations on-hand to offer things like breakfast omelettes, and carvery roasts in the evening. You can grab snacks in between meals, too.
Festival food stalls and iconic British beach huts provided the inspiration for this grab 'n' go eatery. This means you can expect to pick up things like bacon butties for breakfast, and sweet chilli chicken wings, mezze salads and focaccia sandwiches in the afternoon.
You'll find this trendy Italian restaurant on the second floor of the ship's main dining room, 47o. It's a laid-back place, where bookings aren't necessary, and its designer look features a colour scheme inspired by the sunset.
Surf & Turf Steakhouse
As its name suggests, this a la carte eatery specializes in the likes of marbled steaks and meaty lobster tails. You've also got other meat and fish options, as well as plenty to satisfy a vegetarian palate. You'll pay a cover charge to eat dinner here.
Our signature pan-Asian a la carte makes an appearance onboard Marella Discovery 2. The menu covers off south and east Asia, featuring dishes like Indian spiced king prawns, and Indonesian beef rendang curry. A cover charge applies for dining here, and you'll need to make a reservation.
The ship's open-air pool comes with the bonus of built-in hot tubs. You'll find a second pool indoors, plus a slew of treatment cabins at the Oceans Gym and Spa. If you want to up the pace, head out to the rock climbing wall - a Marella Cruises first - or practice your putt on the minigolf green.
Brave the heights of the rock-climbing wall, and get a bird's-eye view of the ship and the ocean.
Virtual Reality Experience
Slip on a headset and you can explore new lands on Space Pirate Trainer, whizz through the solar system on Universe Sandbox 2, or paint your own galaxy on Tilt Brush by Google. It's free, easy-to-use and suitable for all ages.
The Coffee Port
This contemporary coffeehouse is perfect for enjoying a Lavazza cappuccino and a slice of cake while you recharge your batteries. You'll also find a library here. Please note, The Coffee Port is not part of the All Inclusive package.
Broad Street Shops
The onboard boutiques are open when the ship's at sea, and stock a great range of duty-free products.
Green Screen Experience
You can pose in front of a range of backdrops, including ones of our destinations or the ship. There are child-friendly, animated options, too. Do it alone, as a couple, or with the whole family in tow - it's up to you. Either way, it's free, and we'll email you the photo, so you can stick it on Facebook straight away.
A made-for-teens hangout spot conveniently located by the games area. There's even a karaoke booth where you can record your own CD.
We're open around the clock for anything you need.More Choices
