Today is spent at sea, enjoying the atmosphere on board and getting to know Marco Polo's wonderful on-board amenities.
Marco Polo's first port of call is the ancient and beguiling village of Hellesylt, beautifully set on twisting Geirangerfjord. Step ashore to enjoy an unforgettable excursion through the breathtaking scenery of the glorious fjord and its surroundings.
Cruise into beautiful Romsdalsfjord and call at the delightful port town of Andalsnes. From here, there's the opportunity to enjoy an excursion through some of Norway's most spectacular mountain scenery, and perhaps a chance to visit the famous wooden Rodven stave church in its dreamy setting beside the fjord.
Today Marco Polo calls at Olden. Take a trip through the almost unimaginably beautiful 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.
Today Marco Polo cruises to her anchorage at the far end of mighty Sognefjord - Skjolden, in the tributary Lustrafjord. From here wonderful shore excursions may take you into the stunning interior. Follow the spectacularly scenic ancient trading route of the Sognefjellsweg, or visit the awe-inspiring Nigardsbreen glacier, an eastern section of the massive Jostedalsbreen icefield.
Enjoy a last day at sea, enjoying life on board Marco Polo.
Marco Polo arrives back in Newcastle, at the end of a wonderful cruise holiday.
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.
