Marella Celebration sailing from Port of Tyne, Newcastle

A beautiful film of the ship leaving Newcastle, as it sails past David Taylor’s camera. It is a great chance to see the exterior in detail. This time Elizabeth is missing from shot not wishing to swim out into picture! The Celebration is operated under long term charter by TUI Cruises who have had the ship since 2005. It was refurbished in 2013 including jazzed-up cabins and contemporary furnishings in all the public areas. 20 balconies were added to cabins on Deck 9, possibly one seen in our cabin video and 5 new Deluxe Balcony cabins were built on deck 5. There was also the addition of premium Coffee Port. The ship has 1264 passengers and 520 crew and can travel at 18 knots. and we are pleased to now have Thomson as a partner here at Doris Visits.

The Mistrals Restaurant offers extravagant dining with lobster thermidor and lamb rack items on the à la carte menu. Attentive waiter service in contemporary surroundings make the small premium for this fine dining well worth the treat. Similarly, Kora La offers an exotic Asian menu with the likes of ginger prawns.

Essentials – cruise travel labels and our cruise crime novels – oh, and the seasickness bands.

You may not have been to the ports in the novels, you certainly won’t have been to the parts of the ship they use. All the cruise crime novels will make you feel like you are in the adventure and on the ship – dodge the bullets and stay out of the romance. Ship and cruise accurate, the novels are a great way for new cruisers to discover a ship too. Please share the Amazon link. .CRUISE SHIP HEIST
