OVERVIEW: This is a comfortable ship with classic looks, and, with its deep draft, rides well in unkind sea conditions. It appeals to couples and single travelers of mature years who enjoy visiting interesting destinations in the comfort of a ship that is unpretentious yet pleasing, without much ent

Marco Polo Christmas Markets

Reviewed By: on
Older/smaller ships have a friendliness and intimacy that mega-ship can never hope to emulate. Smaller ships are also easier to navigate for those passengers with mobility problems. Personally I find it so much easier to fall in love with small ships.

The success of any cruise can come down to ones expectations. The Marco Polo does not claim to offer a five star experience and is often priced accordingly. However, I did not feel that I was simply getting a second rate product. Nearly every aspect of Marco Polo’s operation exceeded my expectations, given the size of the ship, its age and the low fare that I paid. The internal décor was generally modern and clean, the cabins were adequate to good. The food generally exceeded my expectations and the entertainment was very good in a non-ambitious way.

I think the Marco Polo will appeal to those who enjoy a friendly British style product, with some evening formality, at a reasonable price. Fred Olsen regulars, P&O veterans and Thomson fans should seriously consider this ship. Likewise, those passengers who have only ever experienced mega-ships should try her out to see what ‘real’ cruising is all about at the purest level: no rock walls, no parks or ice rinks, just sea views, good company and some wholesome cooking.
