Board Marco Polo in Newcastle, settle into your cabin and enjoy your first dinner on board as your floating home gets underway this evening.
Spend today at sea, getting to know Marco Polo and your fellow passengers.
Hardangerfjord stretches over 100 kilometres into the Norwegian interior, and this morning Marco Polo heads into its stunning landscape of sheer, forested mountainsides and still waters. Our port here is tiny Ulvik, an oasis of tranquillity far removed from our hectic world. Enjoy an overland excursion through the almost unimaginably beautiful countryside, then re-join Marco Polo in Eidfjord, from where you can take an excursion to the towering Voringfossen waterfalls.
The remote village of Flam is set in one of mighty Sognefjord's most remote corners. From here, you might enjoy an unforgettable excursion, boarding the world-famous Flamsbana Mountain Railway, for the beautiful journey to Myrdal, before joining a coach to travel through yet more breathtaking scenery.
Marco Polo's final fjordland call is Bergen, unofficial capital of the fjords. Join the crowds at the morning fish market on the harbourside, and wander through the narrow cobbled streets of this historic Hanseatic city - birthplace of Grieg and a royal residence. Don't miss the ancient Bryggen area, and perhaps take the Floibanen funicular to the heights above.
Your final day is spent at sea, relaxing as Marco Polo heads for home.
Disembark in Edinburgh's port of Leith, this morning. A coach transfer back to Newcastle is included in the price of your cruise.
MV Marco Polo
In an age of vast, impersonal, floating hotels, 22,000-tonne 'Marco Polo', her profile marking her out as the epitome of sea-going elegance, is a beautiful ocean-liner in the classic tradition. Offering high levels of comfort, sumptuous dining and a genuinely warm welcome from the crew, 'Marco Polo' will offer everything you'd expect of such a high-class vessel.
Fully stabilised and air-conditioned, 'Marco Polo' boasts eight passenger decks, which are serviced by four lifts and three wide stairwells. Out on deck a vast amount of space ensures plenty of viewing opportunities when cruising through scenic waters, and more-than-ample room for sunbathers to top up their tans, while belowdecks you'll find facilities to cater to all your cruising pleasures by day and night. In addition to the comfortable lounges and bars, beautiful main dining room and light and airy bistro there's a shopping arcade, a library, a card room and an internet room. The Spa, Beauty and Fitness Centre spoils the body-conscious with a gym, a hair and beauty salon, a table-tennis room, a massage and sauna area, and even deck-top Jacuzzis.'Marco Polo"s 15 categories of cabins and suites all offer private facilities with showers or bath/showers, TV with satellite, 'view from the bridge' and in-house movie channels, telephones, hairdryers and personal safes. Cabins have a variety of twin and double beds, with upper berths for third and fourth sharing passengers. Outside cabins offer porthole or larger windows. Your cabin will be looked after your steward/stewardess and housekeeper, who will ensure that beds are made, towels are changed and toiletries replenished. All cabins feature 110v and 220v current and have an electrical socket. Even in the most economical cabins, the standard features are impressive.
