Lineup and Highlights

Nineties favourites B'Witched, 5IVE, 911 and S Club Party are booked to perform on this year's Electric Sunsets Cruise Back to the 90s. DJ sets from Judge Jules and DJ SASH! will add to the nostalgia with some classic house music, with tribute act performances, Movies at Moonlight theme screenings and fancy dress parties also on the programme.

Onboard Vibe

Passengers can expect a festival-like atmosphere -- think V Festival at sea -- with fun programming that is all about getting your fix of nineties pop culture.

Who Would Like It

Anyone who loves the music, film and fashion of the 1990s that wants to mingle with like-minded passengers on the comfort of Marella Cruises' more luxurious Marella Explorer. We love that this short itinerary also takes in two beautiful ports -- Amsterdam and Bruges -- for those looking to soak up some culture off the ship. Passengers can also shake off their nineties hangover in the comfort of the ship's gorgeous Champneys Spa.

How to Book

Electric Sunsets Cruise Back to the 90s is operated by Marella Cruises. You can book directly via the line's website.
