The Marella Explorer, the latest addition to the Marella Cruises fleet, made her inaugural visit to Gibraltar on Wednesday, although she had previously visited the Rock under her former guise of Mein Schiff 1.

The ship has had a multi-million pound makeover, and now boasts a Champneys health spa, a selection of new restaurants, new shops and a state-of-the-art interactive DJ screen called The Emulator, overlooking the dance floor in the Indigo nightclub.

Marella Explorer is the largest ship in the cruise line's fleet, carrying up to 1,924 passengers and 909 crew. She will be sailing the western Mediterranean during the summer before heading down to the Caribbean for the winter.
