I wanted to express my disappointment of the Marco Polo cruise we took from Rosyth on the 23rd Aug 19. The ship while kept clean is in need of a full refurb. The service in the bars and for coffee is excruciatingly slow. We waited for over an hour in the Captain's Lounge just to get a coffee, and had to chase it 3 times before we got 2 cups...getting drinks was equally as slow for the whole week. The crew were not easy to engage with and some downright rude. Very happy to talk and laugh between themselves, but as customers we felt like an inconvenience. Breakfast was a farce most mornings, and we tried different times -food had run out leading to long queues, no toast, no mugs to get tea and coffee. It was just a joke, and set the day off on the wrong note every morning. Scots bar was closed one evening for a staff party! But the ship was heading to Newcastle when we came home then to Tilbury with perhaps very few passengers, could the staff party have been then? Not a pleasant trip, and many of our travellers we ate with in the evening had complained onboard about the service. I would be very reluctant to recommend the Marco Polo or Cruise & Maritime after our experience and it’s unlikely we would want to travel with you again, which is disappointing as you will be sailing from Aberdeen in 2020. You need to review your management of the catering areas for breakfast and lunch, train your crew to be customer focused, and look to refresh the ship if you hope to get return clients, and that is where your business focus should be. Not what we were looking forward to on the cruise. To let you understand how disappointed we were, in 40 years of travel and holidays this is the 1st time we have complained.

Our cruise was perfect. The staff were lovely all the way through the cruise, the food was wonderful and the staff dealt with a few mishaps for us with the best of service and attention which we thank them for. They were amazing!

We went on this mini cruise as we have never been before, but we were thinking about doing a three week cruise next summer. After doing this mini one to Rotterdam i'm not convinced. The ship was old, the seating is showing its age and is in need of updating. The swimming pool was shut until the morning we were to dock back home so all our clothes were packed and we couldn't use it. The hot tub was only open once during the trip. Some of the staff do not speak English and it was very hard to order drinks etc due to there lack of understanding on their part. The worst thing was the cabin. When booking I asked to be near the lifts as we are both disabled, but when we got onboard our cabin was the furthest away from the lifts at the back on Baltic deck. That made things hard for us, and when it came to sleeping there was no chance with the noise. I also booked a double bedroom but was given two single beds which could not be moved, so I asked if we could be moved and was told no, here have some ear plugs. I spoke to fellow passengers who booked late like myself and they had a nice cabin near the lift and quite a few floors up, so I guess it's down to luck if you get any sleep on a ship - but I couldn't do 3 weeks without sleep.
