Fjordland cruise - Marco Polo ex Newcastle

Capturing all the beauty of western Norway in its summertime glory, this cruise calls at three contrasting fjords, where you might step ashore to explore, or take optional shore excursions into the hinterland.

Included

  • Seven nights accommodation in your choice of cabin
  • Full-board arrangements including full breakfast, luncheon, dinner, afternoon tea and midnight snacks
  • On-board entertainment as arranged
  • Calls at ports as detailed in the itinerary
  • The services of a friendly, professional crew and cruise staff

Day one

Embark Marco Polo in Newcastle in time for her early evening sailing.

Day two

Today is spent at sea.

Day three

Marco Polo's first port of call is the ancient village of Hellesylt, set on twisting Geirangerfjord. Step ashore to take an excursion through the scenery of the fjord and its surroundings.

Day four

Cruise into Romsdalsfjord and call at the port town of Andalsnes. From here, there's the opportunity to take an excursion through some of Norway's mountain scenery, and perhaps a chance to visit the wooden Rodven stave church in its setting beside the fjord.

Day five

Today Marco Polo calls at Olden. Take a trip through the surrounding countryside to the famous Briksdal glacier, part of the vast icy mass of the Josterdalsbreen glacier, which broods over the eastern reaches of the fjord.

Day six

Today Marco Polo cruises to her anchorage at the far end of mighty Sognefjord - Skjolden, in the tributary Lustrafjord. From here shore excursions may take you into the interior. Follow the scenic ancient trading route of the Sognefjellsweg, or visit the Nigardsbreen glacier, an eastern section of the massive Jostedalsbreen icefield.

Day seven

Enjoy a last day at sea.

Day eight

Marco Polo arrives back in Newcastle.

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.
