Food was awful. Tasteless, and much like eating in a school cafeteria. Even the sitdown restaurant had the same food. Cabin was great, but we hardly slept. Don't know why as the beds were OK. Very old ship, and it's showing it's ... Read more

My husband and I have been on several cruises with CMV and this was truly the worst holiday ever. I would not recommend this cruise at all. This was our only holiday of the year and quite frankly the cruise was terrible – full of ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we liked the itinerary. Age group 60 - 90 years of age. Very elderly frail clientele - not a good combination with rough seas so we were greeted with 2 ambulances on the dockside at our first port stop. An ... Read more

We booked this cruise because of the destinations and the size of the ship. As Donte states, the Marco Polo has quite a following and we met many passengers who had booked for the same reasons as us and because they loved the ship.. We ... Read more

This was our first cruise, and we found it to exceed any expectations we might have had! The ship was just the right size - small and intimate enough that it really felt like 'home' after just a few days, but with plenty to do and just ... Read more

We have been on the Marco Polo 3 times which shows how highly we rate it. Left Liverpool this time which compares favourably to Tilbury. We stayed overnight so that we were able to enjoy almost a full day in Liverpool. Parking was no ... Read more

We chose this cruise for a number of reasons living close to Liverpool it was an ideal place to set off from. Another reason we chose this particular one is that the Marco Polo is not to big as we felt that some of the other ships were ... Read more

I’ve read some of the negatives about this ship but we were pleasantly surprised. Don’t take any notice of the whingers! It’s not ‘old’; it’s well maintained, spotless, and very comfortable. We chose ... Read more

I was a bit sceptical about my 7 night Scottish Island cruise on Marco Polo as I'd hear a few bad things about the ship, but have to say I had a great time. We chose this one based on the itinerary and were certainly not disappointed. ... Read more

This ship is very tired and old and needs lots of updating. The waiting and bar staff are very hard workers, polite and friendly but the reception staff and excursions staff appear to be more aloof. The food apart from the cooked breakfast ... Read more
