Wonderful ship with a great crew.

Sail Date: November 01, 2006

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

We have been on the Marco Polo 3 times and each time it getts a little better. Our vacations are planned around the area the ship is in and the ports of call. the last trip to Egypt and then onto Kenya and the game parks is one that every serious traveler should take. I do not know how the ship plans shore trips , but they do a fantastic job. In fact it is the best we have evere experenced!

Also, when you leave the ship for home they can make arrangements for additional days at the city where you get off. This is a wonderful tidbit for us.

Pros: Ease of walking around the ship both inside and out, the food is great, and having constant table companions is a plus for us.

Cons: Nothing

Recommends Marco Polo (RETIRED)? Yes!

Children's Programs
Ship Quality
We have been on several other ships and their size is just overwelming for us. The Marco Polo is just right to get to know other travelers. As for being clean,wow is she clean.
Food and Dining
Having a set dinner time with an establish table leads to a more 'homey' feeling. You get to share 'you will not beleive what happened to us today' stories over the most fantastic meals.
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
Excellent can not begain to describe the crew and senior staff. Within one day you are known by name and always greeted by a pleasant smile.
We really look forward to the night the crew gives a show. They are the Marco Polo.
