Marco Polo

Ship Details

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.
