I thoroughly enjoyed being on the vessel, from the mechanics of it all. It is such a large ship and it was fascinating seeing it leave the harbours and dock, anchor at sea and everything that was involved with it. I loved being on the deck seeing the the ship plough through the sea, and loved seeing the shore from the sea - especially at night when you could see harbour lights and the light from the lighthouses.

My cabin was wonderful, the window being under the deck so I was right beside the sea. It was all so clean and the cabin staff worked tirelessly to make it all a great stay.

The ship was spotlessly clean - again the staff working all day to keep it so.

The entertainment was good and the facilities of all the lounges and bars. I didn't like eating the formal dinner every night (the staff were wonderful, so friendly, but being a solo passenger with no choice of whom to be with, I found some of the other table members somewhat difficult to get on with). I found the dinner went on for so long, there being so many courses (the food was wonderful but too much for me to eat) that I found I could eat in the bistro instead. I found that much better as I could be more independent, eating when I wanted and how much I wanted. Also, it meant I was free to go up on deck and watch the ship as it left the ports.

I liked the library and games room. I found peace and quiet in both places and like minded people occupying them. It was great to have jigsaw puzzles that everybody could join in with.

The information sheet that we got each night in our cabin was invaluable. It was all so well organised. I also loved the little newspaper each day and the puzzle sheets - so many people used them.

It was lovely having free tea and coffee all day long. The food was superb in both the restaurant and the bistro, with super afternoon tea as well - I especially liked the pastries.

I did a couple of excursions but after that decided to do my own thing rather than having to be organised on and off buses. I enjoyed walking off into the towns, and enjoyed the tender journeys. We visited some lovely places.

I did feel at times like I was in a floating care home, so many elderly and infirm people. That is all fine but a lot of moaning went on as well! I thought the staff were very patient and friendly at all times when having to deal with such passengers and their complaints.

I applaud the captain and his staff on looking after us all so well and delivering us safely from place to place. I am in awe of how they handle such a large vessel.

All in all a very interesting, enjoyable experience. Although my next sortie at sea will be with 34 passengers.

"Baltic Cities Cruise" by a.thain5 star

No matter what part of the holiday we think about now we cannot fault any of the organisation, from embarking to disembarking.

The ship was clean, the food was excellent, the staff were wonderful and the organisation at each of the cities we visited was first class.

We would highly recommend this trip on the MARCO POLO

"Hull to St Petersburg" by j.godfrey5 star

Our first cruise (other than one down the Rhine in the 1980s).

It proved to be more enjoyable than we had hoped.

Chosen because it left from Hull and we had never been to St Petersburg and because it came back through the Kiel Canal, 12 days.

We had been to Copenhagen, Tallin, Helsinki and Stockholm which were the other ports of call. Useful not to have to get visas for Russia if you go on organised trips.

Most passengers were from Yorkshire and Lincolnshire and, to put it kindly, mostly over 65, all well travelled and many had been on a number of cruises.

We were apprehensive about being allocated to a table at dinner with four people we might not wish to spend our evenings with, however our companions were agreeable and easy to talk to.

We didn't attend the two formal "fancy dress" dinners as we do not want to take formal clothes on holiday.

The two restaurants had similar food with plenty of choice, 6 main courses at dinner - meat, fish, chicken, pasta, two vegetarian choices and always including a curry of some kind, the chef was Indian. Flavours perhaps a little genteel but that's mass catering. The restaurant had very efficient waiter service, two sittings for dinner, usually 18.00 and 20.00. The bistro was self service and also did afternoon tea which was very good, with excellent scones. Supper at 23.00 wasn't investigated except for one evening when a "gala" supper provided a sumptuous spread with suckling pig, a glass of fizz and petit fours.

There were always specials, perhaps eggs benedict or pancakes in the restaurant for breakfast.

Both the bistro and the restaurant had a servery which would cook eggs or omelettes to order for breakfast.

An outdoor bar at the pool provided small snacks at lunchtime, where chips were always available for those suffering chip withdrawal (they didn't appear anywhere else).

At dinner the bistro had a servery which cooked specials to order, perhaps kebabs or crepes.

There was a good wine list (in fact confusingly, to us and the staff, there were 3 different ones and it was often difficult to get wine service).

Our cabin, a premier twin on deck 10 was comfortable, with forward facing windows. It had tea making equipment, but as tea and coffee are available all day in the bistro we rarely used it. The public areas were comfortable and everything was spotlessly clean.

Our steward looked after us well and cheerfully.

All staff were friendly and helpful, always spoke to you whoever and wherever they were and had good English.

Trips were expensive but well organised, with good guides. I recommend taking a small group, out of hours tour of the Hermitage to avoid the crowds. We were there at 9 a.m. in a group of 6 - worth every penny.

Copenhagen, Tallin and Helsinki are easy without going on a tour. The tour desk on board will give you maps and information about things like the free bus from the boat to the old town in Talllin.

Stockholm is not possible on your own. Mooring an hours drive from the town (is this a financial or time constraint?) means a tour is essential. Don't miss the Vaasa ship museum. Transfers to land by ship's lifeboat were slow and would not be nice in bad weather.

As we were running late we were fortunate to transit the Kiel Canal during the day - it hadn't been made clear in the details that this is normally at night.

We were 12 hours late returning home after being put ashore at Newcastle instead of Hull and were bussed back - fairly painless. We were told that this was because as we were late the tides would not allow us into Hull - this is not true because the large ferries come into Hull at the same time every day regardless of tide. I didn't mind being late because it meant the Kiel Canal transit was in daylight. However the boat was not able to cope when we were turned out of our cabins at 11.00 and were not able to disembark until after 18.00. There were not enough seats for the 800 bored and unhappy people, and very few toilets in public areas (a problem throughout the cruise) and nowhere to put luggage.

My one complaint would be that there was almost no information about where we were and what we could see. Sometimes when some information was broadcast it was incorrect - we had completely wrong information given about the Danish bridges.

I probably wouldn't do another sea cruise as the days at sea can be dreary. There were good lectures, but none of the other entertainment appealed to us.

"Baltic Cities" by N.Noble5 star

We have done other cruises but this was our first with Cruise and Maritime and the first to the Baltic.


Overall ,the holiday was very good-an old ship "The Marco Polo " but well maintained ,excellent cleanliness and a polite,friendly crew.We did trips in all 6 countries visited ,including 3 in St Petersburg ,and all were enjoyable .The food was good and varied and all evening shows were excellent.


The only disappointment was a lack of time in Stockholm-I had hoped to see the "Vasa" (old ship) but this was a minor point in an otherwise very enjoyable 13 days

"British Isles Discovery" by L.Spillane5 star

We thoroughly enjoyed our cruise and would recommend it . We arrived at tilbury at the time stated on our tickets our bags were taken from us and we just had to book in and went straight on to the ship. Our cabin was a good size and the bed was comfortable the cabin steward was excellent . We dined in the restaurant every night except 1 where we dined in the self service which had plenty of choice as did the restaurant excellent food. The entertainment was really good we watched the show every evening . The shore excursions we could not fault . We wish we could do it all again

"Fjordland Splendour" by A.Hope5 star

I went on the Marco Polo in May to visit the Norwegian fjords. The day we arrived in Bergen (May 17th) was their Constitution Day and nearly everyone was in their national dress. The youths not wearing the traditional dress were all in suits; not a pair of jeans in sight! There were hundreds of people around plus a parade and a fun fair but not a scrap of litter; the Norwegians are so proud of their country.The lovely Hanseatic wharf in Briggan with all the little side streets was very attractive and King Harkon's Hall so well preserved.

Marco Polo was lovely, not too big and the staff were all so attentive and helpful. There was a great choice of food and the evening entertainment was excellent. There were also some 'serious' lectures which were so interesting - from Northern Lights, DNA and forensics to dinosaurs. Security was second to none and the excursions ashore were well organised.
Ge4irange3r Fjord was perfect but being fairly early in the year and the 2016 weather continuing to be cold for so long, not many of the waterfalls were flowing.

The scenery everywhere was spectacular. One excursion was a visit to the Briksdal Glacier where you could either walk or go in a Troll Car if there was difficulty in walking. At the base of the glacier was a lake and the water in there was just like drinking silk - it was so soft.

The Flam railway was fascinating with a huge waterfall along the way and a photo-stop for the cameras and camcorders.

Andalsnes gave the opportunity to visit Trollveggen - the Troll Wall which is 6,000 feet high and quite often covered in cloud at the top but impressive non the less.

The shop in Geiranger was wonderful as were the cafes and as we moved on to Olden, we had spectacular waterfalls in the Fjord

I cant give a favorite place to visit, I loved them all
