Marco Polo

Cruise and Maritime entered administration 20th July 2020. All future Cruise and Maritime bookings are cancelled. If affected, we will be in touch with you to advise how to reclaim any money that you are owed and to discuss alternative holidays. Please be assured that your money is protected. If you’re looking for a suitable alternative, we recommend Fred. Olsen Cruises or the brand-new Ambassador Cruise Line and their new Ambience cruise ship.

One of the best-loved ships at sea, the iconic Marco Polo creates a memorable experience for every guest who has the joy of stepping onboard. Boasting an authentic, high-quality cruise experience, Marco Polo boasts an onboard ambiance which few of the modern superliners can replicate. Being an adults-only ship, the relaxed and sophisticated ambience means guests can make the most of their holiday and all the great facilities found across the ship.

Ship Facilities


Marco Polo features traditional cruise cuisine with a couple of great dining options available. The main dining room offers set dining times and elegant five-course meals, and the relaxed buffet-style venue is perfect for the more informal moments onboard.

Choose the Waldorf Restaurant for a traditional two-sitting, fixed-time dining option or, as an alternative and more informal experience, the stylish Marco’s Restaurant has everything you need for a delicious mealtime.

When it comes to taking a break for a nice cuppa, passengers can choose from a range of delectable speciality teas from the famous British company Whittard of Chelsea. Their selected gift products can also be found in the onboard shopping areas, so guests can take their favourite hot drink back with them


There is a great range of entertainment onboard Marco Polo. Why not try pre-dinner cocktails whilst enjoying the pianist in the Captains Club, or sit back and enjoy the range of shows in the Marco Polo Lounge? If you're feeling lucky there is Scott's Bar which offers great views over the pool while dancing the night away.

Things to do

Nothing says a leisurely cruise more than socialising with other guests in the Card Room over a game of bridge or backgammon. However, if you find yourself feeling a little restless, head to the fitness centre to use the exercise machines or take a stroll around the deck and admire the view. The deck is also a popular spot for sunbathers, who can soak up the rays from the comfort of the sun lounger and take a refreshing dip in the pool to cool off.

For those looking to up their holiday relaxation game, Marco Polo also boasts an onboard spa, with a hair and beauty salon, and sauna and massage facilities. Whichever treatments you choose, you’ll be sure to leave feeling refreshed and ready to explore the exciting destinations.
