Marella Explorer 2 is the newest ship in the fleet and it’s adults only.
Indigo is the ship’s flagship venue. It caters for daytime drinks with a view, as well as all-night dancing. A couple of other bars sort you out for laidback drinks, like the Squid and Anchor pub. For full-on glitz and glamour, the Broadway Show Lounge steps into view.Thanks to its location, Aperitif is a great place to go before or after a meal at one of our speciality restaurants. The Shack – This deck bar provides cool-down drinks in between sunbathing. You’ll find it just above Snack Shack, overlooking the pool.
There are plenty of dining options on Explorer 2. And they cater for all kinds of taste buds – whether you fancy some European eats or fiery Asian flavours. Just one of the options is The Dining Club – This fine dining restaurant was made for foodies. This is one of the ship’s speciality restaurants, so there’s a charge to dine here – plus, we recommend you make a reservation in advance.
Each day onboard Marella Explorer 2 can be different. Unwind at the spa, sunbathe by the pool or perfect your putt on the mini golf green – here are just some of the facilities on board:
Spa and Beauty Salon: At this state-of-the-art spa you can book in for treatments (charges apply), like facials, body wraps and massages, plus there’s a beauty salon. Alternatively, you can work up a sweat with the sea in sight at the gym.
Broad Street Shops:
Spanning two decks, this tip-top selection of boutiques is stocked with a huge range of products and big-name brands, covering everything from everyday essentials and souvenirs to perfume and jewellery.
Indigo Casino: If you’re feeling lucky, you can try out the slot machines and card tables at the Indigo Casino.
Scoops: For those with a sweet tooth, try Scoops. This vintage-looking parlour serves up dollops of gelato in a range of flavours, and you can add toppings, too. The menu changes every day but you can expect out-of-the-ordinary options, like oreo, G&T and banoffee. The seating’s just as quirky – a collection of bike seats sit facing out to sea. A charge applies here.
The pool is split in two by a small stage in the middle, and you can look forward to daily entertainment. Four whirlpool baths bubble away by the main pool.
Latitude 53: The main waiter service restaurant is a good-looking place, with a gold-and-grey colour scheme and floor-to-ceiling windows.
