A veteran tub for the more mature: Marco Polo Cruise Review by ken may
Overall Member Rating
A veteran tub for the more mature
Destination: Baltic Sea
Don't get me wrong, the ship is small and More intimate with the hospitality crew working their socks off to please and the other passengers very amenable, with many a word exchanged, normally when standing with a full plate of food and waiting for a free table in the restaurant.
Now for the homework bit, the itinerary sounds comprehensive but timings seem to be suited more for the cruise line than the passenger. Of the 11 day cruise, nearly 5 of those are at sea, with only 1 day in St. Petersburg, 4 hours in Stockholm and the transit of the Kiel Canal starting at 11 at night and exiting at 8 next morning, that made for some interesting comments from fellow travellers who had all expected to see us through during daylight. Information on ports of call is dire with not even a city map available on board and the first day lecture on destinations is blatantly to sell their tours, so I do recommend that you get as much information as you need before sailing and find out the docking times at each port.
Sorry about the moans as we really enjoyed the trip to visit places we have longed to see and were quiet proud to return home more sober and less heavy than when we started.
I won't mention the gym, honest. you would cry. Less
