We were concerned that the cruise would not go ahead after the previous cruise was hit by a D&V virus. All went great, ship was very clean, our cabin great for our needs, near the bar and food!! The bars were varied and cattered for all, the service came with a smile, special thanks to Silvyja. Drinks reasonably priced and in sterling. Entertainment was great and varied, from stage shows, classical music to bingo and quiz shows. Food was fantastic either in the silver service Waldorf, or the more informal Marco's bistro. We had most of our meals from Marco's as it was a pleasure to go in, help yourself and take the food onto the deck to eat. Lots of activities were provided but we did not participate much in these as the weather was so good we preferred staying on deck. There was another D&V outbreak, 13 people I believe, which resulted in escurtions being cancelled in Helsinki(you could still walk in) and Marco's being closed for two day, putting too much pressure on the Waldorff. Cannot blame the ship or the crew, I would guess they maybe over-reacted after the previous cruise. The ship was kept spotlessly clean and any bug being passed around was as a result of cruise passengers poor personal hygiene. Destinations superb, excurtions very good, could not have asked for more. A great experience, cannot wait to go back on the Marco Polo.

Marco Polo lives!!!!

Cabin Review

Cabin
Had a superiot Interior twin. Quite small but met our needs, close to top of ship, bars, food etc. Right next to the door to the deck. Was able to specify this room before departure.
