MS Marco Polo

Sail date: October 12, 2017

Ship: MS Marco Polo

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Review summary

The Marco Polo is quite an old ship ,built in the Soviet Union as an Ice Breaker! It has been extensively refitted and has a loyal following. Aimed at the older passenger but not exclusively, it isn't recommended for children. It's small size (8XX) passengers gives it charm, not present in larger vessels. Our cruise in October 2017 was enjoyable ( we are aged 62 & 60 ), food and service was good, entertainment was well above expectations in general, and activities kept us busy on the 6 Sea Days on our Madeira & The Canaries cruise. One aspect that didn't suit everyone was that as an older ship, the Marco Polo does rock & roll much more than newer & larger ships, so travel sickness precautions are worthwhile if you are not a great sailor, some actually liked it though because it left them in no doubt that they were at Sea, unlike some large ships.
