Great first time cruise

|

The Marco Polo is an old ship but she's been lovingly looked after. She's kept spotlessly clean by the staff. The cabin we had (for 3 people) was a little small (I had the top "bunk") but again it's clean and ...

A Spring Break on MS Marco Polo (CMV) was a Hit!

We chose this because were desperate for a post winter break. We have been the Marco Polo several times.It's not huge but comfortable and easy to find your way around. I love bigger ships because of having more to ...

Better than expected

We booked this cruise on a 2 for 1 deal, and the attractive cruise itinerary ticked several boxes on our bucket list..(Tresco, Sark, Honfleur and Monets garden at Giverny.) We are aged 56 and 65.Extremely easy to ...

Frail elderly abound; engine & wave noise

We chose this cruise because we liked the itinerary. Age group 60 - 90 years of age. Very elderly frail clientele - not a good combination with rough seas so we were greeted with 2 ambulances on the dockside at ...

Never Again

The two positives about this cruise were leaving from Newcastle and the ports of call. Marco Polo sells itself on being an old but classic ship, it is old but certainly has no class! Everything about it was a ...

Again; Not Much to Fault

This was our 3rd cruise chosen for the ports of call (Baltic cities, especially St Petersburg) and the two for one offer in the Saturday telegraph. We were offered an upgrade to Deck 5, which was the next to the ...

What an amazing experience.

Our first cruise & our expectations were more than exceeded. I loved the Marco Polo. The service was exceptional. You would be hard pressed to criticize anything although I'm sure some picky people would try. The ...

A Very Pleasant Surprise

Picked up a 'two for one' deal to the Fjords. I was expecting a rusty old tub. What we experienced was a well maintained, tastefully decorated ship with plenty to offer. Cabin was a good size with plenty of ...

A cruise too many??

Just returned from our fifth cruise on the good old M.P. around the Norwegian Fjords and perhaps it was one too many. As usual embarkation/disembarkation was fantastic. Sitting in Captains club at 09.15hrs and in ...

British Maritime Heritage Cruise

Not a 5 star cruise/ship but not marketed as such. A traditional cruise with all the ingredients. The Waldorf Restaurant was beyond our expectations and well managed. Dinner comprised of 6 courses with Grilled ...

Marco Polo - an Easter Break

We drove straight into the London Cruise Terminal and immediately unloaded our cases to the waiting porters before driving the 400 metres or so to the long-stay car park -- a covered parking area. Whilst it would ...

Excellent value for money - ignore the moaners!

I have just read a review by a passenger, Philip, on the same cruise as me. We visitied Rouen, Guernsey and the Scilly Isles. Although I agree with him that the eastern European staff were not the friendliest that ...

Great spring Break

We are just back home from the 'springtime gardens' cruise on the Marco Polo. We couldn't believe our good fortune in managing to get a late deal on this ship. The itinerary provided an overnight stay in Rouen after ...
