Marco Polo Cruise Review by Bridie Robin
- Sail Date: June 2019
- Destination: British Isles & Western Europe
The ship is good but it was overcrowded. The cabin is very good, but a big step into the bathroom and the window was dirty, spoiling an excellent view. The highlight of the dining experience was dinner which was excellent. Breakfast, lunch and tea were average, with big queues for tea.
The onboard ship's entertainment was outstanding, although visiting acts were poor. There was also a great choice of onboard activities and excellent guest lecturers. Service was excellent and usually with a smile.
We found the ports of call very interesting and was one of the main reasons we chose this cruise. The visit to Narsarsuaq was cancelled, but we went to Minaatsoq instead. We also missed out on Prince Christian Sound due to it being blocked by icebergs.
Shore excursions in Iceland, Faroe Islands and Orkney were good and value for money, but very poor value for money in Greenland. Our best visits in Greenland were when we explored on our own.

Akureyri£119 was quite expensive, so not good value for money, but a very interesting trip, seeing some fascinating sites. A good lunch was also included.View All 12,802 Akureyri Cruise Port Reviews

KirkwallWe went on the Skara Brae and Brodgar excursion which was fascinating as Skara Brae had been on my bucket list. We also had a bit of a tour of the main island, including Scapa Flow. There were very long queues for the tenders on our return, but we toured the port and went to the hotel opposite to drink local whiskeys and an Irish coffee until the queues died down. Great day and the weather was good.View All 179 Kirkwall Cruise Port Reviews

Golden CircleAt £119, this was probably the best value for money of all the trips. A very good lunch was also included. This was very informative and we got to see the fascinating geological features of Iceland. A great day and the weather was great.View All 107 Golden Circle Reviews
Torshavn (Faroe Islands)We went on the coastal villages trip for £52 each. Good value for money and we got to see a reasonable amount of Streymor, which is beautiful, helped by the lovely sunny weather. Another great day.View All 14 Torshavn (Faroe Islands) Cruise Port Reviews
