Marco Polo is a classic ocean liner with a handsome traditional profile, beautiful teak decks and distinctive dark blue hull. She has an interesting history, having been the prestigious pride of the Soviet cruise fleet before being sold to a Western entrepreneur and undergoing a multi-million pound rebuild.
Now a child-free ship operating exclusively for adult passengers, she carries up to 820 guests in a warm, friendly and comfortable atmosphere. Food and service are superb, cruise experts say.
‘Put simply, Marco Polo is about the basics of cruising: going to interesting places in comfortable surroundings in the company of people you enjoy,’ according to www.cruisecritic.co.uk.
‘In this day and age, where every ship seems to be a gleaming new mega-liner or an ultra-luxury "yacht" with fares so high they make your eyes water, the number of ships that can offer this kind of experience is shrinking fast.’
