Welcome to Mother Russia.: Marco Polo Cruise Review by Helen Ufton
Overall Member Rating
Welcome to Mother Russia.
Destination: Baltic Sea
My thoughts on Marco Polo, I love it, on all three cruises we had the most fantastic staff, some even remembered us from previous cruises and called us by name. The food is good and plentiful but I accept that for the price I am paying I am not going to get gourmet dining. The entertainmers are great, the show team are all professionally trained dancers and musicians and Richards Sykes is an inspiration, the classical entertainers, Olga and Tetyana and Lilia and Eugene are brilliant and the crew entertainers i.e Ciat and James are fantastic.
The excursions we took on all three cruises we were fantastic. Cruise and Maritime use guides who really know thier area and subject and give you a great experience.
I don't understand some of the critism of the crew, i.e surly or unfriendly, I have never found this, they are all cheerful to a man (or woman) I remember one crewman, what ever time I was on deck he was there, scrubbing and polishing, I took to remembering the old army adage, if it moves salute it, if it stands still polish it, and shot out of his way, but he was always very polite.. good morning Madan, did you have a good night?
So, you have read my review and I stand by it, I love Marco Polo as a ship and I will be back as soon as I can. Why don't you give it a go? Less
