You get what you pay for!


We chose this cruise based on itinerary. We knew that the ship was older and expected, "quaint!" and it was quaint. Very clean and over all, not bad for it's age. Had we wanted five star sailing, we would have gone ...

Great Value mini cruise

Although this was our 40th cruise, it was the first on Marco Polo and the smallest ship we have been on in 25 years of cruising and at 2 nights, the shortest. This is also my first review of a cruise ship. Having ...

Canada in the Fall (in 2 weeks)

We choose this cruise to see a bit of Canada. Had done a couple of cruises about 20 years ago and not sure about 31 days. No need to worry as the time aboard ship there was plenty to do - games, quizzes and talks ...

An enjoyable cruise, no real complaints

We picked this cruise from Cardiff as it was close to home and because of the ports of call and very few days at sea. This was a 10 night cruise visiting France, Spain and Portugal with a night stopover in Lisbon. ...

Great Itinerary, Average Ship

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary and date. Which is the main reason we cruise. The ship and cruise line are secondary to us. Embarkation: No problems. Nothing to note. Ship: Older, smaller ...

A great cruising holiday

We chose this cruise because we have always wanted to visit St Petersburg and the 2 day stop at this city did not let us down. We chose the 2 day package and visited the Winter Palace (The Hermitage), the Summer ...

An Old Style Cruise

With misgivings, we booked a 1 night taster on this venerable ship, for nostalgic reasons! Decades ago, when she was under Gerry Herrods ownership, we enjoyed some adventurous cruises on her,; to Antarctica, up ...

Agreeable voyage with very few shortcomings

This cruise was to the Faroes, Iceland, Orkney and Shetland sailing from Hull. First impression was that the embarkation arrangements were mickey mouse as we had opted for the car parking arrangements. In the ...

A good first cruise

We wanted to visit Iceland and, having initially looked at flights/hotels, this cruise, our first, fitted the bill. Although the good weather and calm sea helped, the cruise exceeded our expectations. Despite the ...

Norway Fjordland Cruise

Chose this cruise on price and local embarkation (Hull). The small ship (only 800 passengers) suited my age range and the fact no children allowed suited me and my husband. I have been on much more expensive and ...

Marco Polo, compared to the Magellan.

As we had spent two months on the Cruise and Maritime flag ship M/V Magellan from middle of December 2015 to middle of February 2016, I was rather concerned how the Marco polo cruise to the Baltic would go. The ...

Another Lovely Cruise

This was our third cruise on Marco Polo. Leaving from Avonmouth (Bristol) was delayed by the late arrival of a coach, and possibly the weather. This meant that tide was missed, and with a locking window of only an ...
