“Majestic Fjordland 11-18th September, 2014”

Written on: 19/09/2014 by MW44 (1 review written)

My friend and I booked a Cruise with Cruise and Maritime Voyages aboard the Marco Polo. We didn't know what to expect but it surpassed all our expectations. When we received our tickets, we were surprised to find that we had been given a free upgrade. Our cabin 821 was on Navigator deck and was very comfortable. It had two large windows and although there was a partially obstructed view, we still enjoyed views of the magnificent scenery. Cleanliness of the ship was paramount. Hand sanitizers… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/11/2010 by lesley31 (1 review written)

We travelled on the Marco Polo to the Baltic capitals and St Petersburg. The itinerary and entertainment were good. The cabin was clean and the crew, on the whole, were polite. However, there were serious problems with the food, which lacked variety, wasn't appetising and was served cold, particularly in the buffet restaurant. Worse, the early dinner sitting was advertised as starting at 6.30pm, but in reality started at 5.45 or 6pm - like nursery tea-time, and not acceptable. Marco Polo staff… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/08/2010

Just back from the Baltic cruise today. I am 46 and my wife is late thirties. Food excellent and a good choice of being served by waiters or not. Everywhere was spotless, there were good shows at night and interesting lectures. Notably, a former soldier that patrolled the former Eastern block during the cold war and did a bit of spying. The staff couldn't do enough for you. It's saddening having read other reviews that people are put off as most of the passengers are older people. We met very… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/08/2009

I can honestly say this was a holiday of a lifetime, the Baltics cruise on the Marco Polo was the most amazing experience I've ever had. The Captain and crew were outstanding, every last one of them. the food was fantastic, with a choice of buffet or more formal meals in the restaurant. All staff were chatty, helpful and attentive without overcrowding you. The cabin was cleaned twice a day and our cabin attendant Leonid was exceptional. All the receptionists were friendly and informative… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/07/2009

Just survived the PLAGUE SHIP. Sad that the holiday was ruined by sickness among the Marco Polo passengers and crew. Spent 4 days in one port and was confined to cabin for 48 hours. The crew that were well were fantastic, absolutely nothing was too much effort, all of the communal areas of the ship were really in good condition as were the cabins. Does not appear to have stabilisers fitted to the ship… Read Full Review

We went on the Fjords cruise at the end of April with Transocean Tours and it was wonderful. It was great being able to stay on board the ship instead of transferring to a smaller ship to see the Fjords, as you have to with some of the other cruise liners… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/06/2008 by margaretbuddle (1 review written)

I cannot disagree more with the previous review. We have just returned from the Witsun Fjords cruise on Marco Polo and were impressed with every aspect. The crew and staff, mostly from Eastern Europe, all spoke excellent English, and went out of their way to be extremely helpful and polite. We found the food to be very good with plenty of choice. The whole ship was spotless. The embarkation went very smoothly. We will definitely go again and would recommend it to our friends… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/05/2008

Please note that these are only my opinions. Think carefully before you take a trip on the Marco Polo with Transocean Tours. She was once much loved by her passengers, but Transocean are putting paid to all that. If you do go (and the destinations are attractive) then plan well to overcome the difficulties outlined. If you like middle-of-the-road entertainment, then it is provided and done pretty well - if you prefer something a bit more intelligent then take a book and an MP3 player!… Read Full Review
