Typical Passengers

With TUI’s reputation as a UK leader for travel, it’s no surprise that Marella Discovery 2 attracts a loyal crowd that migrates over from the travel agency’s package holidays. This includes a good number of first-time cruisers, particularly those close to retirement. Yet with this ship’s modern features and children’s clubs, it also attracts plenty of families particularly during the school holidays. 

Ship Amenities 

There’s no danger of getting bored during your time on Marella Discovery 2, with its outdoor film screen, multiple swimming pools, mini-golf course and climbing wall! Daytime entertainment takes place around the pool, with everything from live music to trivia quizzes and cocktail-making masterclasses. Indoors, the ship features a stunning glass-paned Atrium with floor-to-ceiling windows letting in plenty of light and ocean views. One of the standout new features that distinguishes Marella Discovery 2 from the first Discovery ship is its Virtual Reality Experience, filled with magical special effects. There’s also a Green Screen Experience photo booth, where you can pose against your choice of cinematic backdrops to create the perfect photo of your choice. You can then put these on social media or print it out to take home. 

Cabin Amenities 

Cabins are cleverly laid out to make the best use of space, and you can choose from a range of different classes including interior, exterior, and suites with balconies. All cabins include a high use of technology in their infotainment systems, and Wi-Fi is available for a fee. The private bathroom comes fully equipped with complimentary toiletries and fluffy towels, and rooms also include minibars, refrigerators, and air conditioning for comfort. If you upgrade to a suite, you’ll enjoy outdoor seating on the balcony and a touch of specialty services like complimentary breakfast in bed. 

Dining Options

The ship’s dining options blend complimentary venues with specialty eateries, ensuring you have plenty of choices to suit all cravings! The main dining room is 47 Degrees, dishing up a classic menu in a classy setting with floor-to-ceiling windows and a sweeping staircase. Islands buffet offers a tour around the world with its live cooking stations and self-serve options, while specialty restaurant Kora La focuses on the flavours of Asia with an exciting fusion-led slant and sushi bar. Enjoy a bit of alfresco dining on deck at the Snack Shack, styled with colourful beach huts and picnic tables. You’ll find everything from sandwiches to fruit salads and burgers to match the picnic-like setting. And for Signature Steaks and tiger prawns, visit the Surf & Turf Steakhouse. Naturally, room service is also available 24 hours a day should you wish to dine in your stateroom!


The Broadway Show Lounge brings a little slice of West End glamour right into the ship, with its Art Deco décor including sparkling brass and mirrors. It can seat up to 850 guests, with plush seating and a roster of 11 shows with choices suitable for all ages. Outdoors, enjoy a movie under the stars at the LED movie screen overlooking the pool. You can enjoy popcorn and hot chocolate as you lounge on the sunbeds. In addition to the ship’s extensive bars and lounges, there’s also a Live Casino with a roulette wheel, blackjack tables, and plenty of slot machines to keep the energy high. 

Sports and Wellness

In addition to pools and the rock-climbing wall, you can pass the time playing a game of shuffleboard or hire a bike to tour around each port. There’s a full-service gym boasting running machines, exercise bikes and weight machines, and the Oceans Spa and Beauty Salon offers facials, beauty treatments, salt scrubs, and hot stone massages to leave you feeling ultra-relaxed.
