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.
Stylish Copenhagen, home to the famous Tivoli Gardens and forever associated with Hans Christian Andersen, is a marvellous city. Join the optional shore excursion to discover the world famous Little Mermaid, the Royal Palace and the grand stores that line the Stroget as Marco Polo spends the night here.
Days Three and Four
Relax on board as Marco Polo spends another day at sea.
Today we'll arrive in beautiful Tallinn. Step back in time as you explore the enchanting Estonian capital with its perfectly preserved old town, winding cobblestone streets full of storybook houses, steepled churches and ancient buildings, all watched over by Toompea Castle.
Marco Polo will spend two days in St Petersburg, one of the world's most glorious cities. Explore its incomparable Hermitage Museum, stroll down its wide canal-side boulevards, and soak up the modern 'European' atmosphere. You'll have the chance to explore the city's Haymarket, familiar from scenes in Dostoyevsky's novels, to gaze in awe at the opulence of the Marinsky Theatre, home to the world-renowned Kirov Ballet, and to visit the famous Summer Palace at Petrodvorets.
Days Seven and Eight
Step ashore to explore Helsinki, Finland's elegant capital. Explore the harbour-side fish market, take a stroll in nearby Esplanade Park, and don't miss the monumental neo-Classical buildings of stunning Senate Square, which have played the part of Moscow in many Cold War movies.
Marco Polo will call at Nynashamn this morning, and you'll have the chance to head to Stockholm. Best explored on foot, the Swedish capital spans 14 islets and boasts a wonderful mix of historic sights and fine city parks. Its ancient heart is Gamla Stan, a beguiling labyrinth of cobbled streets, shops, cafes and restaurants.
Today is spent at sea before Marco Polo arrives in Holtenau to begin her transit of the Kiel Canal.
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.
