Cabins on the Marco Polo

Customer reviews for Marco Polo

We were very disappointed that we booked a cabin and found the beds cannot be converted to a double unless you book grade 12 or above. This is not shown or mentioned in CMV literature or on website. An old ship that has little soundproofing between cabins we found we were woken by revellers in the early hours each morning as they returned from late entertainment. Sadly we will be reluctant to travel again with CMV because the port of Bristol is a very convenient starting point for us.

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.
