Marco Polo Cruise Review by Kathryn McCulloch

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jun 2015
  • Destination: the Baltic Sea

As a regular cruiser I was thrown by the rigidity of dining times.Breakfast finished at 9:30 and no more available till 12:30.not only this but times varied and we had to look at cruise info to check when meals available.Its a small ship more like a floating hotel and often in the bistro bar it was difficult to find a space to sit and eat a meal.The clientele were almost without exception over 65 and were probably happy enough to organise themselves for meals but I found the lack of flexibility limiting.It delivered on destinations and was reasonable on price but much preferred entertainment and general set up on Thomson.On the whole everyone was very happy with the cruise.The entertainment crew worked hard but were a singer down so a number of shows were not staged and so entertainment was not the usual cruise fare.This is very much a cruise for over 60 couples who want to see some interesting destinations ,regular meals, a bit of entertainment on the night and don't mind a lot of people around.
