A ship not an apartment block

|

Chose the cruise because of the itinerary [St Petersburg] and have sailed on Marco Polo before. Marco Polo looks like a ship and not like a floating apartment block and that's why I like it. OK it has its downside ...

Lovely weekend away but this is not a ship for me.

The Marco Polo is old, small and no frills but she doesn't try to be anything other than that. This was my 11th cruse and the smallest and oldest vessel I have sailed as my past ships have been on the super ...

First ever cruise and this grand old lady had me hooked

The Itinerary suited us but sailing from Cardiff clinched it. Knowing nothing at all about cruise lines I booked on impulse. Then, I found cruisecritic and how critical some were about the Marco Polo! By the time ...

It's all about the itinerary - Greenland aboard Marco Polo (21 day cruise)

Why this cruise? We chose this ship due to the superb itinerary and reasonable price point. For less than half the cost of 1 week on board an "expedition" ship, we spent 3 weeks visiting Faroe Islands (1 port), ...

Excellent British Isles Cruise

Chose this cruise because of the interesting mix of ports to visit and liked the idea of travelling on a smaller, older ship. Mixed reviews on here but we were pleasantly surprised. Cabin was very clean and ...

Never again

I chose this because I wanted to see Cuba before it was spoilt. Ship was old, no use to disabled. Every seat in the restaurant was either broken or badly repaired. The entertainment was awful. Singers couldn’t ...

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 ...

Seine river and medieval ports: beautiful,relaxing cruise on a small older ship

We chose this 7 night cruise for the ports visited, convenience (no fly) and price. Having read mixed reviews we weren't sure what to expect. This was our first cruise with Cruise and Maritime: the model suits us ...

Cabin was clean and comfortable but I wouldn't want to be on for a long cruise 14+ nights as wardrobe space was at a minimum. There was a good range of public areas and bars. The accommodation round the pool was ...
