    "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
