Marco Polo

Sail Date: October 2012
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Embarkation: Other

We arrived at Tilbury and embarkation was spot on and painless. Food was plentiful if a little unimaginative at breakfast and lunch. Dinners were good - the same food was served both in the restaurant and in the 'Bistro' but the bistro was self service, and apparently the wine cost less in the Bistro than in the Restaurant.

Entertainment was probably the best we have seen - both dancers and singers were good and very hard working.

The cabin was small but clean with enough hanging and drawer space - note however, that your suitcases stay in the room (under the bed)so make sure they are not too big!

Gratuities are charged at £10 per day per cabin, however we chose to give money personally to our cabin girl,(who failed to say 'thank you') our waiter (Nin Nin who was the cheeriest and nicest staff member we met on board) and wine waiter and the remainder of the £140 we added to our final bill.

The attraction of this cruise for us was the More departure from Tilbury. We were surprised, however at the number of old and infirm people on board, given that this is an old ship and not really suitable for wheelchairs etc.

Over all the trip was good value working out at about £100 per night each including bar bill and car parking. We did not take any of the trips in port. Less
