Ship Facts: Marco Polo Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Marco Polo Deck Plans
Mini Cruise
Just returned from short break on Marco Polo. Was very wary of this trip as we had short break on Fred Olsen's Boudicca some time ago and were very disappointed as the whole experience left us with a 'never again' attitude for these 3* ships. However we were pleasantly surprised with Marco Polo.

We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a suite which I am sure helped A LOT. The suite was very spacious although dated, the bed was extremely comfortable, 2 televisions (but wish these cruising companies would relay BBC ITV etc - especially for rainy days!). Canapes daily and fresh fruit and flowers the usual suite accompaniments.

The food was just ok but the dining room was very pleasant and run well however the waiter was run off his feet and needs a helper, we did feel very sorry for him, poor Elvis!

The entertainment was excellent, Richard Sykes brilliant, P & O need to head hunt this amazing friendly head of entertainment! Drinks contrary to other reviews inexpensive and served to perfection with waiters constantly cleaning tables for water marks.

After 12+ cruises must say I thoroughly enjoyed this one - although it is for passengers who enjoy the old way of cruising not the new glitzy large tankers!
