Marella Cruises has cancelled sailings until the end of June and announced plans to retire its vessel Marella Celebration earlier than planned.
The Tui-owned line has suspended cruises up to 30 June amid the coronavirus crisis, adding in a statement “all impacted customers are being notified”.
Marella Celebration will also leave its fleet after 15 years of service during which it carried almost half a million passengers.
The ship had been due to homeport in Dubrovnik this summer and again in 2021, while sailing out of Cyprus and Dubai for the winter season.
Marella called Celebration “one of the longest standing and most loved ships” in its fleet.
A spokesperson said “a further update” on Marella’s summer 2021 itineraries would be issued next week.
