Board Marco Polo in Liverpool today, and settle in to your cabin as she prepares to set sail.
Today Marco Polo arrives in Dublin. This great city of culture, once home to Joyce, Yeats, Wilde and Swift, is one of Europe's most engaging capitals. Grafton and O'Connell Streets are popular with visitors, as are the city's famous bars and pubs, cafes and coffee shops.
Cobh is gateway to the great Irish city of Cork. Discover this historic capital of southwest Ireland, or perhaps head into the beautiful rolling countryside beyond to fashionable Kinsale, or to Blarney Castle for a chance to kiss the Blarney Stone and receive "the gift of the gab".
This morning finds us in the Isles of Scilly. Marco Polo anchors here in, giving you the opportunity to go ashore to explore Hugh Town on St Mary's, the flower-strewn byways beyond, and stunning Tresco, where the famous Abbey Gardens house Britain's finest subtropical plant collection.
Guernsey's St Peter Port welcomes us this morning. See 800-year-old Castle Cornet, which guards the entrance to the harbour, wander the cobbled central quarter and make the most of the island's tax-free shopping.
Crossing the Channel completely, our next port of call is Honfleur at the mouth of the Seine. Wander the streets behind the pretty harbour, or perhaps join an optional excursion to Monet's delightful house and gardens at Giverny.
Relax on board as Marco Polo spends another day at sea.
Today's call at Leith offers up the chance to discover Edinburgh many landmarks - from the Royal Mile and Princes Street to the ancient Castle that watches over the city - or perhaps to visit the Royal Yacht Britannia, which is moored nearby.
Today Marco Polo arrives in Kirkwall, Orkney's historic capital. Wander the streets and marvel at magnificent St Magnus Cathedral, or join an excursion to fabled Scapa Flow, Churchill's famous Barriers or the Italian Chapel.
Today Marco Polo arrives in the Western Isles, to anchor off Stornoway, capital of Lewis, in the Outer Hebrides. These beautiful, unspoiled islands have been inhabited for over 6000 years. Explore the town, or take the excursion to Callanish's mysterious Standing Stones, thought to be nearly 4000 years old.
The small town of Tobermory on the beautiful island of Mull, with its picturesque, multi-coloured houses encircling the waterfront, is a delightful place to explore, as is nearby Duart Castle, the famous seat of Clan Maclean.
Marco Polo's final call, in Belfast, brings chances to explore this unique city - where the gleaming Titanic Quarter is a must-see attraction - and the scenic Antrim countryside.
Bid farewell to Marco Polo and all your fellow travellers, today, as you disembark at the end of your cruise.
