MS Marco Polo

Follow Cruises From Bristol's Miles Morgan on his guided video tour round Cruise and Maritime's Marco Polo.

The Marco Polo cruise ship offers a wide range of public facilities including the 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 main lounge areas. The Magellan Deck offers the theatre style Marco Polo Lounge; the elegant Captain’s Club, a perfect venue for pre-dinner cocktails with the resident pianist; relaxing 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, located on Amundsen Deck, an ideal spot for night owls.

Our maitre’d and his attentive waiting staff will welcome you to the elegant Waldorf Restaurant where you can opt for a full English breakfast, savour a leisurely five-course lunch and enjoy a delightful dinner every day of your cruise. Whilst breakfasts and lunches are generally served in the restaurant on an open seating basis, two fixed time sittings are operated for dinner in the evening. As a casual alternative, the light and airy Marco’s Restaurant is open every day for buffet style breakfast, lunches and dinner. Here informality is the key and you can feel free to drop in without any ceremony. The Pool Deck lends itself particularly well to al fresco meals so a buffet breakfast or lunch from Marco’s can be served up with a complimentary ocean view!

Why not settle down and enjoy wonderful panoramic ocean views in the relaxing Palm Garden, or in a secluded corner of the delightful Columbus Lounge where the head barman will soon get to know your favourite drink. At the very heart of Marco Polo is the stylish Captain’s Club, a popular place to meet fellow passengers. To start your evening you might opt for a pre-dinner drink here and enjoy a few of your favourite melodies played by our resident pianist . After dinner the show team would enjoy the pleasure of your company in the comfortable theatre-style Marco Polo Lounge as our artists display their talents in a snappily choreographed revue or colourful floorshow – all you need to do is just sit back and enjoy. Scotts Bar is an ideal spot for evening entertainment and late night dancing for the night owls! Located on Amundsen Deck, Scotts has direct access to the outside and a view of the pool deck below.

Other Facilities
The beautifully appointed Jade Wellness Centre is nature’s secret of well being on the Marco Polo. It offers hairdressing & beauty treatments, fitness and exercise equipment, and sauna and massage facilities. Why not indulge yourself with life’s most perfect gifts: relaxation, invigoration and rejuvenation. Treat yourself to a spa package and design your own special day.

Out On Deck
There is an outdoor swimming pool plus three whirlpools and, in keeping with her heritage, the Amundsen Deck offers a traditional walk around promenade for that daily exercise or romantic stroll before you decide to call it a night.

Cruise & Maritime

Cruise & Maritime Voyages specialise in providing 'no fly' cruising holidays aboard smaller sized classic and more traditional style ships. They believe that these vessels offer a more leisurely and friendly 'home from home' style of cruising and maritime experience and are accessible to a much wider choice of interesting and remote ports of call. New for 2015 is the adults-only MV Azores, which will be sailing out of Bristol for the first time. Cruise & Maritime Voyages realise that many seasoned, and first time British cruisers alike, from our seafaring nation, still prefer the more traditional cruising experience. The emphasis is very much on attaining high levels of customer satisfaction and attentive and friendly service standards and ensuring that passengers return home with many fond memories.

** Please note that all cruise itineraries operated by the MS Marco Polo are on an adult-only basis.
