Day One
Make your way to Tilbury for embarkation and this afternoon's sailing.

Day Two
Today is spent at sea, enjoying the atmosphere on board and getting to know Marco Polo's wonderful on-board amenities.

Day Three
Hardangerfjord stretches over 100 kilometres into the Norwegian interior. Be on deck early this morning as Marco Polo heads into this epic landscape where sheer, forested mountainsides plunge into the still waters. Our first fjord-land call will be at the exquisite village of Rosendal, on Hardangerfjord, where the famous Baroniet Rosendal is Norway's only 'palace', set in stunning surroundings

Day Four
Awake as Marco Polo cruises through the narrow fingers of mighty Sognefjord, the world's largest and deepest fjord, to Flam in the remotest corner of the fjord. From here, you can board the world-famous Flamsbana Mountain Railway to witness the sheer beauty of the journey to Myrdal.

Day Five
This morning Marco Polo docks in Bergen - an ancient Hanseatic city of cobbled streets and medieval houses, and birthplace of composer Edvard Grieg. Visit the vibrant harbour and fish market, stroll past the wooden warehouses of Bryggen, and take the Floibanen funicular to the summit of 'Mount' Floyen

Day Six
Today is spent at sea, no doubt exchanging memories with fellow passengers, and enjoying a last evening's entertainment on board.

Day Seven
Marco Polo arrives back in Tilbury at the end of a memorable voyage, and you'll bid farewell and make your way home.

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.
