My husband has a few mobility problems and a couple of years ago we decided that cruising might be our way forward. We were fortunate to chose Marco Polo for our first cruise as the crew really go the extra mile for passengers. We have since returned twice, the latest trip being to the Baltic. Every time we find that there are crew members on board who always remember us and make us feel at home. It has enabled us to visit places that would be unattainable otherwise. The food is varied and the stewards always made sure that we had a nice meal even when the menu offering did not offer something to our taste (that did not happen very often!) Our cabin stewards have all been excellent and looked after us well and you have not lived until you meet the wonderful "Lovely Jubley" our poolside and breakfast chef. He is quite a character and makes everyone feel good with his chat!
On arrival at Leith we had our cases taken and were told they would be outside our cabin next time we saw them (and they were) We were then directed to a bus which took us to Rosyth as there had been a last minute change of departure port, there we joined a queue to check in which did not take to long, from there we were taken through the port by bus to the ship and boarded right away.
Because of time changes we were directed to Marco's Bistro for lunch before heading to our cabin. All went quite smoothly
The ship is well maintained with ongoing maintenance throughout the cruise. Oh! we have just booked another trip to add to the 2 already in the pipeline. Says it all I think. See you soon folks. Read Less
