Board Marco Polo in Bristol 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.
This morning Marco Polo arrives in the great city of Belfast. Step ashore to explore the historic city centre, see the sensational new Titanic Quarter, or join an excursion to the wild Antrim coast, and discover the wonder of nature known as the Giant's Causeway, with its thirty-seven thousand basalt columns.
Today, Marco Polo arrives in the Western Isles, to anchor off Stornoway, capital of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides. These beautiful, unspoiled islands - guardians of a rich culture - have been inhabited for over 6000 years. Wander the town, or take the excursion to Callanish's mysterious Standing Stones, thought to be nearly 4000 years old.
The beautiful island of Mull offers breathtaking scenery, abundant wildlife and a spectacular coastline. The small town of Tobermory, with its picturesque, multi-coloured houses encircling the waterfront, is a delightful place to explore, as is nearby famous Duart Castle, the seat of Clan Maclean.
Today we'll visit Dublin, one of Europe's most engaging capitals. Explore this former home of Yeats, Wilde and Joyce, shop on Grafton and O'Connell Streets or relax in one of the city's famous bars and pubs.
Marco Polo arrives in Cork's long, narrow Cobh harbour this morning. A shore excursion here offers you the chance to discover this historic capital of southwest Ireland. You might choose to head into the rolling countryside to fashionable Kinsale, famed for its fine food and sea-fishing, or to visit famous Blarney Castle, just north of the city.
Bid farewell to Marco Polo and all your fellow travellers, today, as you disembark at the end of your cruise.
