Day One

Make your way to Edinburgh and Leith to board Marco Polo and settle in before her afternoon departure.

Day Two

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

Day Three

Tiny Torshavn, capital of the remote Faroe Islands, welcomes us today. These islands have a deep-rooted Norse tradition and are home to countless bird species. Today, you might cross the famous 'Bridge across the Atlantic', which connects Streymoy, the main island, with smaller Eysturoy, home to wooden churches and spectacular scenery.

Day Four

The Shetland Island capital, Lerwick, is gateway to a rugged land of ancient legend, traditional crafts and an incredible abundance of bird-life. Spend time in Lerwick town, or join an excursion to the 3,000 year-old archaeological site at Jarlshof, with its Bronze and Iron Age remains.

Day Five

Marco Polo anchors off Stornoway, the capital of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides, today. Perched on the very edge of Britain, these unspoiled islands have been inhabited continuously for over 6,000 years. Explore the town, or take the excursion to the mysterious and ancient Standing Stones at Callanish, thought to be nearly 4,000 years old.

Day Six

Our final port of call is Kirkwall, the historic capital of Orkney. Visit magnificent St Magnus Cathedral, stroll the meandering streets, explore the museum, or enjoy a shore excursion. Among the sights you might see are the tragic waters of Scapa Flow, the beautiful Italian Chapel, the Neolithic stone settlement at Skara Brae and the fabled Ring of Brodgar.

Day Seven

Disembark as Marco Polo returns to Leith at the end of this delightful cruise.
