10+ Cruises • Age 70s

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 elsewhere. Most of the passengers were very pleasant and yes we had a sprinkling of passengers who complained from day 1. The fact that we missed ports due to the corona virus, was ...

An excellent mini cruise. Despite it being a little rough on the crossing out we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The entertainment was very good with a new show each night. The singer and piano player in the Scott’s bar were excellent, a great way to sail away from Bristol. We chose a suite that did not disappoint, fresh canapés were delivered each evening. The dining experience was good for the ...

It was wife’s birthday so went for it Enjoyed cruise but I was disappointed in the timings ,the boat went up the fjords early morning (while in bed) out in evening (while at dinner ) thus missing some of the scenery A shorter stay at the places would have cured some of that, as there was nothing much in the villages stopped at .b t w £1.75 to use loo in one place by c c !

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 booked the cruise recently I looked up the reviews just before going and was quite alarmed by the number of negative reviews. I was not therefore expecting much. However, having enjoyed ...

Best cruise itinerary to Greenland

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

Cheapest way to get to Greenland to see the south and west of the island. I have not been on a cruise before. I was on the Baltic deck, two away from the tender boat exit which was ideal. The cabin was spacious and clean and light and we could see out of the portholes and watch passing icebergs by kneeling on the beds. All staff were very good.The food was fine though not excellent. Managed just ...

South America cruise excellent. Ship old but very good. Lots of activities on sea days. Trips expensive but easy to make your own way. Food very good. Staff couldn't do enough for you. Many solo travellers. Entertainment very good. Opted for drinks package which turned out to be an excellent choice.. disappointed not to visit some places that required a tender but you have to respect the captain's ...

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

A thoroughly enjoyable cruise which we did back to back with a cruise of the Baltic in a different cabin (inside cabin 409 at the front of the ship which often had diesel fumes in the cabin). We moved to cabin 327 for this phase of our back to back cruise and we were much happier enjoying this midship cabin which had a high porthole and the difference some natural light makes is amazing. The cabin ...

We booked this because we were going to the U K and decided to try this cruise because it was going through the Kiel Canal.. We had a total of 4 sea days. and our port stops were. Wismar . Germany. A very quiet port lovely architecture but very walkable. Next Port was Ronne a Danish island. Again very very quiet and apsrt from the churches not much to see.Would not visit this port again. ...

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 or craft sessions. Or even choir, line dancing and acting. Embarkation was fine and the cases that we had sent ahead by TEFRA were waiting at our cabin door. We chose late sitting ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

Our first ever cruise chosen because of the destinations and departure port being so close to home. Very impressed with the organisation of embarkation, cleanliness and standard of service. We had cabin 607 on deck 9. Spacious enough and with plenty of storage but nothing flash. Food was excellent as was the service ice and the standard of entertainment was superb. Popular with older ...
