Sailed from Newcastle on the Magellan. Embarkation was excellent and we were on the ship and shown to our cabin in no time. Luggage arrived ten minutes later. The cabin was clean and modern and the cabin steward was excellent. The ... Read more

Chosen for destination and port of departure. First impressions were good. Cabin perfectly fine except toilet required cleaning. No shampoo dispenser - it eventually arrived on our second last day - shower gel dispenser didn't 'dispense' - ... Read more

A fabulous 4night cruise on the iconic Marco Polo. I loved this ships art deco interior and it reminded me of an episode of my favourite Hercule Poorly series! Unable to disembark at the Isles of Scilly due to bad weather, the ... Read more

The best aspect of this cruise was, without doubt, the entertainment - which was good fun. The onboard-team were so full of energy and enthusiasm and were accomplished dancers and singers - so that was good. The speakers were interesting - ... Read more

The two positives about this cruise were leaving from Newcastle and the ports of call. Marco Polo sells itself on being an old but classic ship, it is old but certainly has no class! Everything about it was a disappointment. We had ... Read more

I booked this cruise just ten days before departure, and was stupid enough to read the reviews after booking. Must say I was dreading the experience as all the reviews were extremely negative. Anyway I think I must have been on the wrong ... Read more

Our cabin was clean and tidy, it’s a pity the tap in the bathroom came off in my wife’s hand and it took over 4 hours before it was fixed. The Air-conditioning was noisy and the knob to turn it off was stuck, eventually I ... Read more

Picked up a 'two for one' deal to the Fjords. I was expecting a rusty old tub. What we experienced was a well maintained, tastefully decorated ship with plenty to offer. Cabin was a good size with plenty of storage. The steward was very ... Read more
