Day one

Make your way to the London Cruise Terminal for the early evening sailing.

Day two

The Dutch capital welcomes Marco Polo today. Step ashore to explore Amsterdam's colourful streets, picturesque canals and renowned museums. Perhaps take to the water on a canal cruise or a self-pedalled canal 'bike' before you rejoin Marco Polo in the late afternoon.

Day three

This morning, Marco Polo docks in the Belgian port of Zeebrugge. Explore, or perhaps join an optional shore excursion to the exquisite Belgian city of Bruges, with its canals and cobblestones, its romantic 'Lake of Love', and its wonderful selection of chocolatiers.

Day four

Marco Polo anchors off St Helier, the pretty capital of sun-kissed Jersey, this morning. Step ashore to explore the shops and stores, or take an excursion to discover the island, which is also home to the world-renowned Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust.

Day five

Guernsey's St Peter Port welcomes us this morning, and the day can be spent enjoying the pleasures of this beautiful Channel Isle. Don't miss 800-year-old Castle Cornet, which guards the entrance to the harbour, nor the medieval, cobbled central quarter of St Peter Port, where countless shops and colourful stalls offer tax-free gifts.

Day six

Exquisite Honfleur, with its picture-book harbour and quayside, is perfect for wandering. Explore, or join the shore excursion to the Impressionist painter Claude Monet's exquisite home and garden at Giverny, where the grounds are laid out to the artist's design and his studio is left untouched.

Day seven

Marco Polo returns to Tilbury.

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.
