Marella Celebration is one of the smaller ships in our fleet, which makes it really friendly. It was refurbished in 2012, so you can look forward to jazzed-up cabins and contemporary furnishings in all the public areas. In 2012, we launched our premium coffee shop 'The Coffee Port'. Plus, 20 balconies were added to deck 9 cabins and 5 new Deluxe Balcony cabins were built on deck 5. And it really knows how to spoil you. Go gourmet in the sophisticated a la carte restaurants, or indulge to your heart's content in the spa.
Spa & Fitness
Oceans Beauty Salon and Spa
This place pulls out all the stops when it comes to pure indulgence. Treatments include full-body wraps, Indian head massages, and aromatherapy facials. So whatever you choose, you're in for some top-to-toe pampering.
The roomy gym is well-equipped with resistance and cardio machines for an energetic workout, and you can even book a bit of personal training to get in to tiptop shape.
The Sun Lounge

Feeling seasick or rundown? The ship's doctor and a team of nurses hold a surgery from 8-10am and 6-7.30pm.
There are his 'n' hers saunas next to the beauty salon and spa.
This makes a great pairing with the pool.
There's a separate pool for the kids to let off steam.
Deck 8 Pool
The pool on deck 8 has a quiet setting with lovely sea views.
Daytimes on deck 5 revolve around the pool. There's something for everyone here, with plenty of sunloungers, a bar and a grill, plus live music and entertainment.
Marella Celebration knows how to put on a good show when it comes to catering for grown-up tastes. It counts sophisticated a la carte restaurants and an indulgent spa among its facilities. You'll also get to make the most of a great pool scene when you're not relaxing in our contemporary lounges or strolling the teak promenades.
You can join in loads of activities in this lively lounge at the centre of the ship. Anyone up for line dancing or Zumba? For something a bit more laid-back, there is bingo and film screenings during the day. Live bands, game shows, karaoke and disco music take over in the evening. There is a great range of drinks in the bar here, too.
Sign up for a blackjack or poker lesson at one of the gaming tables here, or simply get to grips with the fruit machines. Maybe Lady Luck will be on your side.
Broad Street Shops
Our boutiques sell a wide range of duty-free perfumes and toiletries. Fashion and jewellery promotions means you can make even more of a saving. Just so you know, spirits and tobacco are only sold on non-EU cruises.
Based in the Explorers' Lounge, the Destinations Services desk is the place to browse and book our excursions, and to get insider hints and tips on our ports of call. You can even whet your appetite for your next cruise - we've got friendly advisors based here who can tell you what's what.

Marella Celebration offers all the hallmarks of modern cruise dining with open seating that lets you dine where and when you fancy. Our relaxed restaurants have everything from help-yourself buffets to multi-course dinners with waiter service. A la carte dining and a weekly Gala Reception and black-tie-and-cocktail-frock dinner bring an upmarket edge to meal times.
When it comes to extravagant dining, this place is a real gem. Pick the likes of lobster thermidor and lamb rack from the a la carte menu, and enjoy attentive waiter service in contemporary surroundings. Just so you know, a cover charge applies and you'll need to make a reservation.
The Terrace Grill is two restaurants in one. In the evenings, it's an eatery where you can get steaks cooked just the way you like them on hot stones. During the day, it's the place to come for light bites like pasta and salads. Just so you know, a cover charge applies in the evenings.
Kora La Restaurant
Kora La serves Asian dishes, with interiors that echo the exotic menu. Just so you know, a cover charge applies.
The Meridian Restaurant
You've got the freedom to choose where you dine at this spacious eatery. It has an open seating system, which means you can opt for a different table and waiter for every meal. You can drop by for breakfast for breakfast, lunch and multi-course dinners with waiter service.
There's a laid-back and friendly feel to this self-service buffet restaurant, which has an indoor and an outdoor dining area. It offers a huge choice of hot and cold meals, from full-cooked breakfasts first thing in the morning to lunchtime carveries and curries for late-night munchies.
The Coffee Port
This coffee shop is just the ticket for a mid-morning pick-me-up. Why not tuck in to a just-baked muffin or cookie along with a freshly brewed Lavazza coffee? The Coffee Port is also one of our Wi-Fi hotspots, so while you're here you can stay connected with friends and loved ones back home.
You'll find a room service menu in the Life Onboard magazine in your cabin. You can order 24 hours a day and the bill will be added to your onboard account.
Bars and Entertainment
You will never be short of entertainment on board Thomson Celebration. When you are not taking part in a dance class or quiz, you can be playing your best hand in the casino. Or why not sit back and let us entertain you in style with live music all around the ship and lavish Broadway-style productions in the show lounge.
Just the place for cappuccinos and crosswords. This is spot-on when you want to relax in gracious surroundings and enjoy a quiet drink and casual chat. Great views out of the large windows, cosy seating and laid-back tunes seal the deal.
Broadway Show Lounge Bar
On the top level of the show lounge, this is the place to order your drinks before taking a seat for the night's entertainment.
Because this traditional bar is close to the main restaurant and the show lounge, it makes an appealing rendezvous for pre-dinner drinks. Order the cocktail of the day at the long bar and listen to the sounds of the guitarist and the pianist while you work up an appetite. Or settle in to one of the sofas or cosy armchairs to chat with new friends.
Set next to the pool and restaurant, there are chairs and tables here for al fresco eats and drinks. It makes a great space for cooking demos and games, and there is usually a bit of live music in the afternoons.
The Reception keeps round-the-clock hours. Which means we're always on hand to answer your queries and keep you up-to-date with your ship account.
