Board Marco Polo in Hull today, and settle in to your cabin as she prepares to set sail.
Spend the first day relaxing, and getting to know the ship, her crew and your fellow passengers.
Tiny, Toytown-like Torshavn is the capital of the Faroe Islands. Explore its confusion of lanes, narrow passages and black-tarred houses with green turf on the roofs, or join an excursion, perhaps to cross the famous Bridge across the Atlantic connecting the main island of Streymoy with the spectacular scenery and ancient wooden churches of smaller Eysturoy.
Reaching the east coast of Iceland, we'll call in Eskifjordur, a historic fishing port and charming seaside village on the shores of the Eskifjord. A fascinating Maritime Museum details the region's long association with the sea, and shore excursions might a boat tour to remote Mjoifjordur and the fascinating Icelandic Wartime Museum.
Today we visit Husavik, the European Capital of Whale-Watching. Learn about the fascinating creatures at the pretty port-town's Whale Museum.
This morning Marco Polo arrives in tiny, exquisite Isafjordur, the capital of the Westfjords area, and gateway to the magical, mystical land of West Iceland from which Norse sailors set out to discover Greenland and the New World.
Reykjavik is the world's northernmost capital. Its brightly painted wooden buildings contrast sharply with the stunning beauty of its setting beneath Mount Ejsa. Step ashore to explore, take the lift to the top of the Hallgrimskirkja Church for a panoramic view, or visit the fascinating Arbaer Folk Museum and the Saga Museum.
Today we cruise past Heimaey, where Eldfell, the volcanic 'Fire Mountain', looms over the tiny port of Vestmannaeyjar, and around the fascinating, 'new' island of Surtsey, created from a three-year series of volcanic eruptions that began in 1963.
Relax on board as Marco Polo spends another day at sea.
Our next port is the Shetland capital, Lerwick. Spend time exploring this rugged but enchanting town, or join an excursion to the 3,000 year-old archaeological site at Jarlshof, with its Bronze and Iron Age remains.
Invergordon's natural harbour, welcomes Marco Polo today. Step ashore to explore or join a shore excursion, perhaps to Inverness in search of Nessie. Golfers might make a pilgrimage to Dornoch, or whisky connoisseurs to the celebrated Ord Distillery.
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 at the end of your cruise.
