Marco Polo Odyssy

Sail Date: October 2011
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Embarkation: Other

Having cruised with NCL, MSC and Princess lines in the past we found Marco Polo to be the best value for money.Being a much smaller ship it did not have the variety of restaurants,lounges and bars that can be found in bigger ships, but what it did have was very good value for money.The menu's had a good selection of five course meals and the house wines were good and no more expensive than what can be found in our local eating establishments.

The ship was clean,the crew were well trained,could speak good English,were very helpful and courteous.The waiters and cabin stewards we found to be as good if not better than we have found in other ships

Entertainment was good, with stage shows in the evenings,and musicians of a high standard playing in the various lounges throughout the ship.Various games and quizzes, and lectures took place during the day time hours to keep everyone occupied.

The cruise director should also get a mention,he was probably the best that we More have had the pleasure to have sailed with.

We have looked at some other reviews of this ship,some people should just stay at home. Less

Cabin review: Marco Polo 411

The only improvement that could be made would be to the shower in the bath room. We do not like plastic shower screens,and the adjustment between cold and very hot is is very small.

Port and Shore Excursions


We took a coach tour and saw some fantastic architecture,will have to go back again.

We went on a coach tour, Corsica is a beautiful island. a must see for any traveller.
