History

The Marella Celebration was built by Chantiers de l'Atlantique in 1984 for Holland America Line as MS Noordam at a cost of $160million, and the third Holland America Line vessel to bear the name. Her sister ship, the Thomson Spirit, was originally the Holland America ship MS Nieuw Amsterdam (1982). In 2005, a replacement, the fourth Noordam, was ordered from Fincantieri shipyards in Italy. After its last sailing with Holland America Line, the ship was taken out of service, chartered to Thomson Cruises and rechristened as the Thomson Celebration. She was originally furnished with a $1million art collection, some of which, including a 17th-century Oriental screen, can still be found on board.

Marella Celebration received a refurbishment in December 2013 carried out by Blohm + Voss.
