Overcrowded ship

Marco Polo Cruise Review by Grahambrooks2

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jan 2019
  • Destination: the British Isles & Western Europe

Brilliant itinerary, good food and friendly staff, service excellent. Too many people on board for the size of ship. All activities over subscribed. Ship like a long corridor, so passengers and staff passing through all bars sitting areas and bistro. No quiet areas to sit and relax and read without interruptions. Cabins, very poor sound proofing so hearing neighbours whether you wanted to or not. The cabin we had 611 had people thundering around overhead doing exercise walking early mornings. Be careful of the medical mafia on the ship, very expensive. Not recommended for a long cruise. Would not travel on this ship again. There was also a spell when black soot spots came through the air conditioning unit into the cabin covering the beds and furniture. This also happened on decks.

Disappointed that the captain did not seem to want to use tenders in the Caribbean when the wind or sea was not too rough! No laundrette and laundry service expensive.

Cabin Review

Cabin Superior twin 611

Small but comfortable. Very poor sound insulation. Shower room difficult access.

People walking overhead early mornings very annoying.
