News & Stories

We are very proud to announce that we have been awarded the Marella Cruises Outstanding Partnership Award for 2018.

Revealed at the recent Marella Cruises Partnership Conference onboard the Marella Dream, the award recognises the supplier partner who has been outstanding throughout the year.

“a one-team feel”

At the conference, Christian Lacey, Head of Partner Management & Ancillaries for Marella Cruises, said: “This partner was new to Marella Cruises last year and has really hit the ground running – right from day one.

“I asked some of the team to describe this partner in one word and just some of the words they said are: inspiring, creative, enthusiastic, innovative, professional, engaging, fun and flexible.

“Having worked closely with the team on the launch of Marella Explorer, I couldn’t agree more with those descriptions. They are an absolute pleasure to work with on a daily basis.

“With strong communication skills and a real commitment to get things right, this partner truly deserves the award for outstanding partnership. With this partner, it’s extremely collaborative, honest and there’s a real one-team feel.”

innovative entertainment

In what is our inaugural year partnering with Marella, we have operated the onboard entertainment programme for the fleet’s newest ship, the beautiful Marella Explorer.

The innovative entertainment content, created exclusively in-house by our team, includes the very best audio visual, numerous original theatre shows, light entertainment, musicians and state-of-the-art children’s concepts, all of which embrace the latest technologies such as virtual reality and interactive screens.

Winning this award emphasizes our successful delivery throughout the year, alongside the feedback we’re gaining from Marella’s valued guests.

We are now preparing to launch another ground-breaking entertainment programme on board the Explorer 2, which will set sail in 2019.

“this gives us great momentum”

Robin Breese-Davies, ted CEO, added: “This is a proud moment for The Entertainment Department.

“We have worked in the cruise industry for a number of years but to be awarded such an accolade in our first exclusive contract with Marella Cruises is a strong statement, and a huge reward for our brilliant in-house creative and technical team.

“This gives us great momentum leading into an exciting 2019 with the launch of Marella Explorer 2, which pushes the entertainment experience further for the Marella guests.”
