Vicky Lewis, head of operations, Century Travel said, “ Since Thomson stopped sailing from Limassol in 2017, we have worked hard to put plans in place for them to return to the island. In 2017, we had over 1600 passengers from Cyprus cruise with Thomson from Limassol and now we are excited for them to return as Marella Cruises in 2019 and 2020.”
The sailings will be on the Marella Dream and the Marella Celebration. Both are All Inclusive ships and will be offering cruises to Egypt, Israel and the Greek Islands including a Christmas departure for 2019. Sailings will be available to book from November 08 and early booking discounts will be available from Century Travel.
Neil Duncan, head of trading and planning, Marella Cruises, also commented and said, “We are delighted to be announcing our return to Cyprus with a total of 13 roundtrip sailings from Limassol for the end of 2019 and beginning of 2020. We recognise the popularity of Marella with cruisers from Cyprus and look forward to continue working with Century Travel to make the sailings a success.”
