Marco Polo

Marco Polo

Marco Polo is fully stabilised and air conditioned and has eight passenger decks. Her wide range of public facilities include the very impressive Waldorf Restaurant offering a traditional two sitting fixed time dining option and, as an alternative more informal experience, the stylish Marco’s Bistro. There are five lounge areas – the theatre style Marco Polo Lounge, for some truly sparkling entertainment from the highly acclaimed show-team; the elegant Captain’s Club, a perfect venue for pre-dinner cocktails with the resident pianist; Palm Garden, with wonderful panoramic ocean views; and the stylish Columbus Lounge where the head barman will soon get to know your favourite drink. Completing the quintet is Scott’s Bar, an ideal spot to enjoy the late night cabaret.

Other facilities include the ship’s Livingston Library, the Nansen Card Room, an internet cafe, a shopping arcade and the Jade Wellness Centre, which offers hairdressing and beauty treatments, fitness and exercise equipment, and sauna and massage facilities. There is an outdoor swimming pool, three whirlpools and, in keeping with her heritage, a traditional walk around promenade deck. There is a good selection of comfortable cabin accommodation from standard to de luxe with 70% of cabins having an ocean view.

Marco Polo offers a more traditional and intimate cruise and maritime experience to mainly scenic and cultural destinations. Therefore, for the enjoyment of our adult passengers, Marco Polo operates as a ‘child free’ ship. This means that even during school holiday times you can enjoy the pleasures of cruising in the company of adult passengers only. We will accept teenagers who are 16 years old or above at the time of sailing but they must be accompanied by adult passengers.
