The Marco Polo is quite... by jez55

Sail Date: /

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.

We sailed on Marco Polo... by markandmaria

Sail Date: /

We sailed on Marco Polo last summer from Rosyth to Svalbard and Norway. What a voyage of discovery. Glaciers and whales wherever we looked. First impressions were that it’s an old ship, but this all adds to the character. She has a deep draft, which makes her very stable. Food and entertainment on board was very good, apart from the soup in the main restaurant, which became a subject of amusement with our fellow guests on our dining table. Lots of courses, and generally the choice and quality was excellent. There are lots of areas to chill out, and take advantage of the brilliant drinks package, or other activities to keep you occupied during sea days. Being a smaller ship, it is very sociable on board, which led to a great atmosphere. So if you enjoy the classical music from Vladimir and Nadia, late night disco, or shows in the show lounge, there was something for everyone. The only negative for us were single beds in the cabin, that can’t be pushed together. However this was a small price to pay, on that was an incredible adventure. Staff were helpful, and charming. Alexandra in the main lounge, somehow knew what we wanted to order before we did. Will definitely sail on Marco Polo again, if we get the chance. ✨✨M&M✨✨ ⛴
