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".
Marco Polo will stop in Bristol to let some of your travel companions disembark, and you'll have time to step ashore and explore this lively university city.
Relax on board as Marco Polo spends a day at sea.
La Rochelle's sheltered position on the Atlantic coast has helped it become arguably the most attractive seaside resort in France. Wander through its pedestrianised centre from the Vieux Port, past the 17th- and 18th-century houses lining the Rue de Palais to the Belle Epoque Cafe de la Paix.
Bilbao, the largest city in the Basque country and site of the astonishing, futuristic Guggenheim Museum. Famed for its friendliness and food - said to be the best in Spain - this compact city has a wonderful old town, the Casco Viejo, set beside a meander of the Rio Nervion.
Relax on board as Marco Polo spends another day at sea.
The Portuguese capital Lisbon is Marco Polo's next port. Stroll the narrow streets of the Alfama district, and climb aboard one of the city's famous trams. See the extraordinary Manueline architecture of the Belem quarter, and the striking modern buildings of the Baixa.
The Portuguese port of Leixoes gives you the chance to step ashore, perhaps to join this afternoon's excursion to the historic city of Oporto, in its pretty setting on the River Douro. The excursion will include a visit to one of the Port wine lodges and time for sightseeing. Why not take a cruise along the Douro?
Marco Polo's last call is in the historic port of A Coruna, or La Coruna. Step ashore to explore the atmospheric medieval quarter, stroll the extensive seafront promenade, or perhaps take a shore excursion to Santiago de Compostela.
A final day is spent at sea, no doubt reliving the memories your cruise holiday as Marco Polo heads for home.
Bid farewell to Marco Polo and all your fellow travellers, today, as you disembark in Bristol at the end of your cruise.
