Ship Facts: Marco Polo Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Marco Polo Deck Plans
I must be easily pleased

This was our first Cruise trip and had some concerns on how it would go. We arrived at Tilbury and were greeted by a porter who took our cases and suit carrires away which were at our cabing door when we boarded the ship. The embarking was easy and after a short queue we were on board and met with a smile and shown our cabin. Our room host was Zorro who kept smiling all the time and was very efficent. The rooms are not great but have stayed in smaller. We had 2 sets of drwaers and a large wardrobe with an old but working TV. We found the staff always smiled and were friendly.

We decided on the restaturant for meals and Lisa our waitress was very atentive to our needs and seemed happy in her work. I found the choice varied and very tasty. The brekfast choice was very good from the good old fry up to cold meats. cereals or fruit and yoghurts. Entertainment was along the Campsite levels but what to do you expect on a cruise Robbie Williams. As no money is exchaged it's easy to run up a large tab if you are not too careful.

We decided against the excursions as they were expensive so do not feel you have to go on them because it's in the brochure. Shuttle runs into Ghent was a bonus and a short walk from mooring into Amsterdam center was pleasant enough. My only negative were the staff in Scotts Bar, they seemed bored and really did not want to be there. Disembarkation was as easy as embarkation just a bit of a wait as you are off loaded by Cabin level, posh first peasants last.
