Ship Facts: Marco Polo Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Marco Polo Deck Plans
A first time encounter with cruising at sea.
We arrived at Tilbury at 13.35, while I parked my wife joined the queue for checking in. The checking in process was speedy and efficient. By 1400 we were in our cabin with our luggage. Our cabin was perfectly adequate, nothing luxurious but we had booked the Voyager Inside Guarantee package for only £699 each.

We were booked on the first sitting for dinner and our principle waiters Ivo and Dawson were excellent and nothing was too much trouble. I would give the food 7/10 with three dishes 9/10. The wine, at least the one I chose was good.

We enjoyed the entertainment in the Marco Polo Lounge, it was well presented and well performed.

The public areas on Marco Polo were all comfortable and well furnished. I also made good use of the excellent gym facilities.

We found all the staff very pleasant and cheerful, but we do like to treat the staff as we would like to be treated. We had read some less than complimentary comments about Marco Polo before we sailed, we found none of them to be true.

Possibly people get what they deserve.

Would we consider going on Marco Polo again? Definately.
