This is a popular question to the site and the answer is yes, Marella Cruises do offer a range of “no fly” cruises departing from UK ports, especially during the summer months. These cruises allow passengers to embark from a UK port, eliminating the need to fly. Marella Cruises (formerly Thomson Cruises) is owned and operated by TUI, as TUI Cruises also.

The specific itineraries and destinations for Marella’s no fly cruises can vary each year. Common destinations in the past have included ports in Northern Europe, the Baltic Sea, the Norwegian fjords, and sometimes the Mediterranean, among others.

Marella Cruises used a few different UK ports for their sailings. Some of the UK departure ports that Marella Cruises has historically used include:

  1. Port of Southampton: One of the UK’s major ports, often used by various cruise lines, including Marella.
  2. Newcastle (Port of Tyne): Located in the northeast of England, Marella sometimes departs from here for their cruises, especially those heading to Northern Europe or the Baltic.
  3. Dover: Situated in the southeast of England, the Port of Dover has been used by Marella Cruises for some of their itineraries.
  4. Rosyth (for Edinburgh): Located in Scotland, Rosyth is another departure point for some Marella cruises, especially those exploring the northern regions or Scotland itself.
  5. Liverpool: Historically, Marella (previously Thomson Cruises) has used Liverpool as one of their departure ports for certain itineraries.

However, ports and itineraries can change over time, so for the most up-to-date information regarding departure ports and available cruises, it’s recommended to check Marella Cruises‘ official website or consult with a travel agent specializing in cruises.
