Great overnight, but beds like lying on bricks

Enjoyed the overnight cruise from Greenock to Liverpool on the Marco Polo. Great value for money, very good food and okay entertainment, very reasonably priced drinks.

This is an old ship but the public areas are well maintained but somewhat dated as you'd expect. The cabin we had (432) was a premier twin with two windows and ample storage space. Good spacious cabin with furniture showing a bit of wear and tear. But the bed ..... it was so hard it was like lying on a brick wall. If the bed had been better I'd have given an extra star and would have been more likely to cruise with CMV again.

The disembarkation was quite slow given the fact that this is a small ship. Having docked at 9am I'd have thought you could have had everyone off quicker.

The buffet breakfast in the dining room was okay but there really isn't enough room for people to get back and forward between tables, it was a bit of an assault course.

For an overnight it was an enjoyable experience but we had to go to bed early the next evening in Liverpool to make up for lack of sleep on the ship.
