Sail Date: Apr 2019

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.

Cabin Review

Cabin Premium twin outside

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.

Brilliant embarkation
