fjords and land of the midnight sun
Destination: Europe - British Isles & Western
Firstly, Marco Polo is a cruise ship built in the 60s and has had numerous refits, if you want a luxury liner with balconies large cabins and massive deck areas then look elsewhere. Marco Polo is a small ship by comparison to some of the floating hotels that we saw on our cruise, she takes 820 passengers and was full on this particular cruise. We found the size of the ship suited us fine and we never felt lost in a crowd. Staff were helpful and very pleasant at all times, we, unlike one reviewer, did see the captain and saw his officers on a number of occaisions.The ship was clean and tidy, cabin was kept spotless by our steward who again was very pleasant and helpful. . It was a big enough room with plenty of storage space. The food was very good with a choice of formal dining or buffet meals for all three More meals.
We were blessed with some good weather and calm to moderate seas which always helps the holiday. The scenery was spectacular...We went on some excursions but other times chose to spend time in the port of call.. the choice is yours..
Would I go on the Marco Polo again? without a doubt.. Less

Cabin was clean and tidy and had two single beds (comfotable), a large wardrobe, 2 chest of drawers, one with a mirror, both had pull out writing areas, television, small but perfectly adequate on suite. Room was large enough for the purpose, sizes of rooms are given in their brochure so read it before booking!!
