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.

Marco Polo offers a traditional maritime experience in cosy surroundings. Discover a wide range of comfortable lounges and stylish leisure facilities to enrich your time on board. Watch Marco Polo on The Travel Channel's Cruise Today and see for yourself.

Her wide range of public facilities include the impressive Waldorf Restaurant offering two sitting dining or the more informal Marco’s Restaurant. There are five lounge areas including the theatre style Marco Polo Lounge, and a wide range of other amenities. Out on deck, there’s a swimming pool, three whirlpools and a traditional walk around promenade.


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.

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.
