Marco Polo Cruise Review by kim samuel

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: May 2012
  • Destination: the British Isles & Western Europe

Pleasant surprise with a very good free upgrade from cheapest inner cabin to superior outside cabin and felt optimistic despite reading some of the reviews.Embarkation was spot on. Arrived at the cruise terminal at 12.25 pm and was shown to our cabin by 13. 15 and eating buffet lunch 20 minutes later. The ship, public areas may have been a little dated and worn in some areas but spotlessly clean. The cabin was spotless with a double wardrobe and had a larger en suite than when I cruised with Cunard/ Princess lines.The twin beds were exceptionally comfortable.

Didn't use the main dining room as didn't want to dress up.1 formal night even on a 2 night er cruise ! Buffet was reasonable and fish dishes excellent. The salads did though look like yesterdays veg served up in pasta or mayonnaise.There is cabin service but except for breakfast there is a charge.

Service from staff excellent throughout- all polite and cheerful and greeted passengers when they walked past.

Drinks were a bit pricey but no service charge added to the bill

The entertainment /showtime standard but there was a very good classical duo on piano and violin playing in one lounge/bars.

Didn't go on any of the excursions as had been to Belgium several times and its only a 15 minute walk to Antwerp central area. There was a couple of little things that irked me but not enough to spoil the experience of sailing on a traditional British cruise ship.

Cabin Review

Cabin 11 702

cabin 702- great view and just under the bridge. Except for suites none have fridges/ tea making facility. Cabin very spacious and plenty of storage space for longer cruises.En suite a fair size.
