Managing Director of Marella Cruises Chris Hackney said: “We’re really pleased to share details of our winter 2020 programme. Our customers loved being able to book their summer holidays earlier than ever so it seemed only natural to offer this flexibility for winter too. We’re keen to make sure that booking a Marella Cruises holiday is as easy and as flexible as possible and putting our programme on sale early is a key part of this.
“We’re always looking at ways we can offer even more choice to the destinations that customers really want to visit and given the popularity in tourism to Dubai it seemed like the perfect opportunity for us to have one of the fleet homeport there again.”
