Cruising company launches its first literature-themed voyage

A literature-themed cruise is being offered by Marella Cruises for book lovers to enjoy 16 days at sea. 

The all-inclusive cruise across the Atlantic leaves from Montego Bay, Jamaica in April 2022, and sails over 16 days to the port of Dubrovnik in Croatia. 

This tailor-made experience will allow guests to attend guest talks and interactive workshops with authors and entertainers to satisfy any book lover. 

Guests will also be treated to the usual Marella Cruises experience, with all-inclusive food and drink spots, evening entertainment including game shows and quizzes and daytime activities like dance classes and yoga.

Managing Director of Marella Cruises, Chris Hackney, says he hopes the new themed cruise will be as successful as ones run in the past. 

“It offers something different for guests onboard on a cruise where there are not as many days ashore as some of our other itineraries,” he said.

Authors and entertainers joining the cruise include Sarah Cruddas, famous for her knowledge of Space exploration, Tony Strange, known for his comic entertainment and impressions, and crime novelist Barbara Nadel.

The panelists will all share stories and run a series of workshops to guests onboard at no extra cost. 

After a difficult year from the pandemic, Marella Cruises will begin its Spanish sailings from September, before heading into Montego Bay where it will port for the winter before commencing the literary cruise.
