The Marco Polo is an old ship but she's been lovingly looked after. She's kept spotlessly clean by the staff. The cabin we had (for 3 people) was a little small (I had the top "bunk") but again it's clean and perfect for our cruise of a week.
It's not a big ship (800 passengers) and that means it doesn't feel impersonal by any means.
The choice of food in both restaurants is amazing - tasty and plentiful. You won't starve on this ship. Free tea and coffee and water available at all times. Never ran out of anything.
All crew were lovely, friendly and helpful.
If you suffer from sea sickness then ask for a cabin on the lower floors. We were on the Navigator deck and we could feel movement , tho not unpleasant.
The cruise we did was down the Seine from Bristol, stopping at Honfleur (so pretty), Rouen (ok), Guernsey (lovely) and Scilly isles. The ship doesn't go into port at the Scilly isles and the sea too rough for the tender so we couldn't do that trip sadly.
Overall, I would highly recommend her.
Great if not a little bit small for 3 people. 2 would be fine. Shower was great; hot and surprisingly powerful. Kept spotlessly clean with beds turned down every night.
It was ok. Honfleur is lovely and we wish we had done it independentlyView All 2 Deauville Reviews
For the price it was expensive. Not enough time spent there.View All undefined undefined Reviews
Lovely tour on board a very old bus. Guernsey is so lovely and we thoroughly enjoyed the tourView All undefined undefined Reviews
