Soar off to the sunny shores of Thailand, Madeira or the Canaries this winter with savings of up to £800 per couple

Once more, Marella Cruises proves there’s nothing quite like a last-minute deal. And lucky-for-us, right now there are some super sunny savings waiting for us – in Thailand, Madeira and the Canary Islands.

Ditch the winter coat, woolly hat and gloves, and slip into that pineapple-patterned swimsuit you thought you wouldn’t get to wear again before next summer. Because summer never ends. Not in the Canary Islands, anyway.

And if you’re feeling in the mood for a splash of sunshine and a cocktail served in a coconut, now’s the time to enjoy an all-inclusive cruise (tips included as well), with up to £800 off per couple. Now that’s a feel-good summer vibe you’ve got going on.

Wherever you choose to sail, Marella Cruises always delivers a top-notch all-inclusive experience, with everything taken care of, from flights and transfers to fantastic food, and crew tips. Plus, with TUI’s partner hotels all around the world, you can often extend your holiday by including a stay in a hotel at the beginning or end of the cruise.

Warm up your winter in the Caribbean

Fancy a week in the Caribbean, where summer never ends? Don’t hang about – you can be in the Caribbean for the new year with Marella Discovery’s ‘Exotic Islands’ cruise. Fly out to Bridgetown, Barbados, and set sail on January 4, 2023.

In addition to Christmas Day at sea in the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea, you’ll also visit Curacao, Aruba, Grenada and St Lucia. And you’ll be home in time for New Year’s to cheers the new year with family and friends.

And if you’ve already got Christmas planned and your Great Aunt would never forgive you if you cancelled now, why not treat yourself to a post-Christmas reward on the beach, with Marella Discovery’s New Year’s cruise, heading out of Bridgetown on December 28, 2023.

This week-long voyage checks into Antigua, St Maarten, the British Virgin Islands, St Kitts, and Guadeloupe. And… if you’ve got two weeks off work, you could tag this itinerary onto the Christmas sailing above and enjoy a back-to-back cruise with totally different islands to explore.

Escape to the Canaries for Christmas

You’ve not got long to jump on this one, but that’s the whole fun of last-minute getaways. Marella Explorer sails from Santa Cruz de Tenerife on December 22, 2023, for a Christmas cruise around the much-loved Canary Islands, off the North African coast.

With Cruise & Stay options available through TUI’s extensive hotel network, this could turn into a special Christmas and New Year extravaganza, with beach days in Gran Canaria and La Palma, shopping in Fuerteventura, and an overnight stay in Madeira for a Portuguese flair, where you can enjoy volcanic wine from the islands famed cellars, or explore the 17th Century fortress that overlooks the harbour.
