Despite 800+ old folks being cooped up for 6 weeks, there was a high degree of tolerance between passengers. There was some fractious behaviour, some very rude people, some who assumed entitlement, and some who complained about trivia. It ... Read more

This was our first cruise and many commented that we had certainly jumped in at the deep end, however, we were not alone it seemed. Quite a few people had been attracted by the amazing cruise itinerary......The Amazon and the West Indies ... Read more

Had I read the reviews on the Marco Polo before booking I probably would not have gone ahead. However I am delighted to read the last two very fair and accurate reviews echoing my feelings. Before that I wondered if I had been on the same ... Read more

Reading the negative reviews of the ship it would be easy to conclude the Marco Polo is one to avoid. Nothing could be further from the truth. We went on the 42 day Amazon cruise and it was exactly as we expected and a great experience, ... Read more

Embarkation and disembarkation at Tilbury was quick,easy and efficient. The size of the ship appealed to us after being overwhelmed by some bigger and impersonal vessels. We read some reviews before hand as well as the information ... Read more

Our cruise (we are Dutch) with the Marco Polo was not too bad taking into account some negative reviews on this site. The ship is old and that shows. During our trips there was a lot of repairing and painting going on, restricting the ... Read more

This was touted as a very special event with many great surprise features, as it was the final voyage of a former (before NCL bought the line) great ship. Having been on the Marco Polo prior to and after the NCL takeover, I witnessed the ... Read more
