Excellent first cruise experience: Marco Polo Cruise Review by Helen Harrison
Overall Member Rating
Excellent first cruise experience
Destination: Baltic Sea
Embarkation: London (Tilbury)
Our cabin, a Junior suite was very comfortable and well worth an upgrade. Food was tasty and varied but only available at set times, so we didn't fall into the overeating trap 'because it's there' that we were warned about. However what was provided left us very satisfied and those who want to pile plates high have a self serve bistro. The journey was smooth to start but the edge of the storm battering the Uk did produce choppier seas in the latter part of the cruise - the ship coped well, as did the attentive crew.
The only downside was a few fellow passengers who found fault - largely due to orevious experience on the larger liners and expectations that this value for money cruise would provide the same amenities and food provision.
We will return! Less
Comfortable bed, ample space and thoughtful extras such as fruit delivered every other day and complimentary breakfast in bed service all added up to an excellent stay
