Cruise & Maritime Voyages MS Marco Polo
The 22,080grt Bahamian flagged Marco Polo cruise ship with her handsome traditional profile, beautiful teak decks and distinctive dark blue hull is a classic ocean liner. She can accommodate up to 800 guests within a warm and friendly atmosphere that reflects a truly intimate cruise experience. The ms Marco Polo is fully stabilised and air conditioned and has eight passenger decks serviced by three main lobbies and four lifts.
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 for those wishing for the more informal experience, the stylish Marco’s Bistro.
There are five main lounge areas. The Magellan Deck offers the theatre-style Marco Polo Lounge while the elegant Captain’s Club is a perfect venue for pre-dinner cocktails with the resident pianist. Relaxing in the Palm Garden, with wonderful panoramic ocean views, is a fantastic way to make the most of your time on a cruise holiday and the stylish Columbus Lounge is an intimate spot 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 haunt 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!
