Following the conclusion of her SkySea program, the ship visited a COSCO shipyard in Zhoushan, and has now been moved to Spain. She will be the subject of a lengthy conversion, debuting as the 1,814-guest Marella Explorer 2 this April, featuring nine restaurants and 10 bars. The ship will homeport in Palma for her debut in the Mediterranean in April and May, offering week-long sailings with alternating ports. British brand Marella is moving to an all-inclusive pricing model for the 2019 season. The Explorer 2 also completes the brand's fleet modernization process, which has seen it upgrade to larger and more current tonnage.
