The new name has a very romantic meaning. It’s translated from Celtic as ‘shining sea.’ A decision to rebrand was taken to ensure the company’s individuality and avoid any confusion with Tui Cruises, another representative of TUI Group.
The company’s cruise liners will also get new names. For example, TUI Discovery 1 and TUI Discovery 2 will become Marella Discovery 1 and Marella Discovery 2. TUI Explorer expected to start operating under the company’s flag in summer 2018 will join its fleet as Marella Explorer.
Besides this news, the company also revealed information about homeports and itineraries for winter 2018. Marella Discovery will operate adult-only sailings departing from Langkawi and visiting 18 Asian ports, while Marella Celebration will join Marella Explorer in Barbados in winter 2018.
