Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Dec 2016
  • Destination: Canary Islands

wanted away for Christmas and New Year My wife Myself her Sister and Friend

aged between 60 and 73

having been on larger ships before we were a little unsure of the Marco Polo

But right from the start at least you knew your way around

Boarding not bad from arriving at quay to our rooms about 40 minutes which we thought normal

nice touch mulled wine handed round while we waited

Cabin small but functional with good shower , Cabin Steward excellent nothing was a problem ,Every thing was spotless (but too many full length mirrors ,will have to diet)

plenty of variety at mealtime with the waiter and wine waiter at our table good fun and always smiling

Shows were good and there were a variety of talks lectures and quizzes every day

there also were art and craft classes everyday .

this suited us as my wife and sister liked the lectures their friend loved all the arts and crafts and I had my quizzes So we always had something to talk about when we met

we did not go on many excursions as we had been to most of the places before

but the ship anchored off Maderia to bring in the New Year and the firework display was fantastic

only downside was that we had to wait for a couple of hours to disembark but fore by that i would recommend the Marco Polo if you want a small pleasant ship without great shopping Malls or Climbing Frames that is easy to get around and give good value for money
