Marella Voyager

Marella Cruises

Marella Voyager is a Century-class cruise ship, and is the newest ship in the Marella Cruises fleet – but brand new she certainly is not. In fact, this is a ship that is more than 26 years old – starting out as Mercury for Celebrity Cruises, before transforming into Mein Schiff 2 and then finally Mein Herz for Tui. We sailed aboard Marella Voyager for a 7 night cruise around the Western Mediterranean, and the question we asked when we got off – was would be sail aboard her again?
