Hello Mr. Dixon sub.: Transocean Tours The M/v.'Marco Polo' is a medium sized, classic style vessel and has a large following of fans in the UK. In Greek terms she is a 'nice money earner'. If I were the lucky Owner, or controlling shareholder in this shipping group, I would find another Horatio Hornblower to be the next Captain, i.e. Ships Master ! "navigare necesse est" Cheers for now - dick m. york. UK.

Captain Hoddevik called the Marco Polo 'our home from home' and everytime I got back on board that is how I felt. The Marco Polo was run with efficiency and friendliness and I hope they have managed to retain some of the Philopino crew, it was the attention to small details that really worked for me.

Other than Sri Lanka, the friendliest place I have been to is Japan, where people will literally stop you in the street if you look ...
