Full Itinerary

Day One

Make your way to Hull and join Marco Polo before she sets sail this evening. Enjoy your first dinner on board, and get to know your fellow passengers.

Day Two

Today is spent at sea, with a host of facilities and entertainment to enjoy.

Day Three

Marco Polo ties up in Invergordon, one of Britain's greatest natural harbours, where you can step ashore to explore. You might choose to take a shore excursion, perhaps to Inverness, with famous Loch Ness beyond. Golfers might head to nearby Dornoch, home to one of the world's finest courses, while whisky connoisseurs might head to the celebrated Ord Distillery.

Day Four

Today Marco Polo reaches Kirkwall, the historic capital of Orkney. Visit magnificent St Magnus Cathedral, stroll the meandering streets, explore the museum, or enjoy a optional shore excursion, perhaps taking in the waters of Scapa Flow, the beautiful Italian Chapel, the Neolithic stone settlement at Skara Brae and the fabled Ring of Brodgar.

Day Five

Marco Polo arrives in the Western Isles, to anchor off Stornoway, capital of Lewis, in the Outer Hebrides. These beautiful, unspoilt islands (and guardians of a rich culture) 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.

Day Six

The beautiful island of Mull offers breathtaking scenery, abundant wildlife and a spectacular coastline. The small town of Tobermory, familiar to many, with its picturesque, multicoloured houses encircling the waterfront, is a delightful place to explore, as is nearby Duart Castle, famous seat of Clan Maclean.

Day Seven

Today finds us in the great city of culture and learning, Dublin. Home to Joyce, Yeats, Wilde and Swift, birthplace of Shaw, and one of Europe's most engaging capitals, its streets teem with shoppers, and the famous bars and pubs buzz with the energy of locals and visitors alike.

Day Eight

Marco Polo arrives in Cobh this morning. Join our shore excursion to discover this historic capital of southwest Ireland. Alternatively, you may wish to head into the beautiful rolling countryside beyond, to the fashionable resort of Kinsale, famed for its fine food and seafishing, or to famous Blarney Castle, just north of the city.

Day Nine

This morning finds us in the still, blue waters of the sunny Scilly Isles. Go ashore to explore Hugh Town on St Mary's and the flower-strewn byways beyond, and don't miss stunning Tresco, where the world-famous Abbey Gardens house an impressive subtropical plant collection.

Day 10

Guernsey's delightful St Peter Port welcomes Marco Polo 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 you can shop for an array of tax-free gifts.

Day 11

Exquisite Honfleur, with its picturesque harbour surrounded by terraces of gabled houses, lies at the mouth of the Seine, and is the gateway to the stunning Normandy countryside. Explore this favourite retreat of French Impressionists, or venture further afield, perhaps to the famous Normandy beaches or to the historic 'Joan of Arc' city of Rouen.

Day 12

Spend a leisurely day at sea as Marco Polo makes her return journey.

Day 13

Disembark in Hull at the end of a wonderful voyage.
