Fantastic Ports/Ship was just okay...
Marco Polo (RETIRED) 333 Cruise Review to South America
Ship: Marco Polo (RETIRED) 333
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 11 years ago
Yes, I would recommend the ship but with reservations! Don't go on expecting the same amenities you will find on the larger ships. The entertainment is not nearly as glitzy as the larger ships. The food is okay, but pales in comparison. The staterooms are smaller than those on the larger ships. On the upside, the service is fantastic, and because of the size, you can actually get to know your fellow cruisers. The staff do a very good job of letting you know about the ports you will be visiting before you get there and there is not a big "pre-selling job" of on shore shops that often seems to be present on the larger ships.
