Full Itinerary

Day One

Travel to London Tilbury to board Marco Polo.

Day Two

Today is spent at sea, getting to know the ship and your fellow passengers.

Day Three

Marco Polo's first call is ancient Orkney capital, Kirkwall. Explore this gateway into the island's rugged landscape with its magnificent St Magnus Cathedral, meandering streets and excellent museum, and discover a land where history, archaeology, crafts and wildlife all play their part.

Day Four

Today is spent at sea as Marco Polo begins her cruise north to the stunning Norwegian coast.

Day Five

Beautiful Trondheim, picturesquely set between a loop in the River Nid and pretty Trondheimsfjord, welcomes us this morning. Dominated by the imposing Nidaros Cathedral, Trondheim is a fine place in which to wander, soaking up the atmosphere of a city that was once the capital of Viking Norway. Explore the cathedral and the nearby restored Archbishop's Palace, and don't miss the Stiftsgarden, northern Europe's largest wooden building, now a royal residence.

Day Six

Enjoy another relaxing day at sea.

Day Seven

The largest settlement beyond the Arctic Circle, Tromso, with its magnificent cathedral rising grandly from its bustling centre, is our port of call this morning. Step ashore to explore the market, and the Polarmuseum, which pays tribute to Arctic pioneers. East of the city centre is the strikingly modern Arctic Cathedral, or Ishavskatedralen, while close by, a cable car climbs to the summit of Mount Storsteinen for unsurpassed views.

Day Eight

Marco Polo cruises way beyond the Arctic Circle, close to the coast of Finnmark, where the Sami people still lead nomadic lives herding reindeer. Marco Polo docks in remote Honningsvaag, and you can join an optional excursion to the famous visitor centre at Nordkapp (North Cape), almost at Europe's northernmost point.

Day Nine

Relax on board as Marco Polo cruises towards Russia.

Day 10

Peter the Great's northern shipbuilding city of Arkhangelsk, or Archangel, has been much modernised, but remains a welcoming riverfront settlement. It has strong ties to Scandinavia, forged over centuries through the Pomor (literally 'by sea') traders who plied the waters of Northern Norway during the long days of each short summer. Step ashore to discover one of Russia's most fascinating northern outposts, with its colourful promenade overlooking the river.

Day 11

Enjoy another leisurely day at sea.

Day 12

The formerly 'top-secret' city of Murmansk, close to the headquarters of Russia's Northern Fleet and its submarine bases, suffered terribly during WWII - a fact commemorated with a giant hill-top memorial overlooking the remote settlement. Optional shore excursions will include the opportunity to visit the fascinating Museum of the Northern Fleet, before you re-board Marco Polo to sail back into Norwegian waters.

Day 13

Marco Polo spends the day at sea as she returns to Norway.

Day 14

Reaching the wild and beautiful Lofoten Islands, Marco Polo enters some of Europe's most spectacular waters. Here, tiny fishing villages shelter beneath the towering peaks, cliffs and rock formations that rise out of the water. Calling at Sortland, there'll be an opportunity to explore this beautiful corner of the world on an overland excursion.

Day 15

Relax on board as Marco Polo spends another day at sea.

Day 16

A final call is made in Bergen - an ancient Hanseatic city of cobbled streets and medieval houses, and birthplace of composer Edvard Grieg. Visit the vibrant harbour and fish market, stroll past the wooden warehouses of Bryggen and take the Floibanen funicular to the summit of 'Mount' Floyen.

Day 17

Enjoy a final day at sea as Marco Polo returns to the UK, reliving the memories of a wonderful holiday.

Day 18

Marco Polo arrives back in London Tilbury at the end of your cruise.
