Tui-owned Marella Cruises has cancelled all sailings between March 14 and March 28.

It said in a statement this afternoon: “Marella Cruises has made the difficult decision to cancel all sailings due to travel between 14th and 28th March 2020, all customers affected will be proactively notified and automatically issued a full refund.

“The cruise line understands that this may be disappointing for customers but felt that given the constantly changing situation cruises operating during the next two weeks would fall short of the experience it wants to give its customers.

“Marella Cruises would like to thank its customers for their understanding during this unprecedented time.”
