Marco Polo Cruise Review by windygail16

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Aug 2017
  • Destination: Europe

All good - except charged for a bottle of water in the cabin not used- we deliberately made a point of not opening the bottles of water in the cabin - did manage to get money back with a bit of awkwardness-also staff not terribly friendly at the reception while dealing with it!

My main moan was the dreadful Wellness Package I had pre - booked for £129!!! To cut a very long story short - don't bother with getting it! - not worth the money and hassle I had trying to sort it. It was a disaster from the start to the finish - thought with pre booking it and the price I would have red carpet treatment - oh how I was wrong! Don't Do It!!!

But apart from that -thoroughly enjoyed the trip - even with two extremely choppy nights at sea! - don't forget the sea sickness pills and you will be fine!

Would book with the cruise line again - but keeping to small trips.

Cabin Review

Nice cabin - two good size windows with a slight restricted view - slightly small - but absolutely fine.


Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Kirkwall

We went on the Skarra Brae excursion- very good

Portree (Isle of Skye)

Tender boat took us to the quayside and we looked round Portree - lovely place to visit - although small.

Greenock (Glasgow)

Just a port - we did walk into Greenock. We had booked to go on a trip to Glasgow - but it got cancelled- supposedly not enough people wanting to go into Glasgow. The reception staff might have helped us to go it alone- either by getting us a taxi - maybe with other passengers who wanted to go into Glasgow - or helping us with public transport directions.
