Full Itinerary

Day One

Make your way to Cardiff and board Marco Polo for this afternoon's sailing.

Day Two

Today finds Marco Polo in Dublin. The Irish capital has been a thriving cultural centre for centuries. Join the bustling shoppers on Grafton and O'Connell Streets, visit historic Trinity College or head to one of the many cafes, coffee shops, bars and pubs to soak up the buzzing atmosphere.

Day Three

Marco Polo arrives in Cork's long, narrow Cobh harbour this morning. Shore excursions here offer you the chance to discover this historic capital of southwest Ireland, to head into the beautiful rolling countryside to fashionable Kinsale, famed for its fine food and sea-fishing, or to visit famous Blarney Castle, just north of the city, for a chance to kiss the Blarney Stone.

Day Four

Skirting the coast, Marco Polo heads to exquisite Bantry Bay. Go ashore at Glengariff, a green oasis where sub-tropical plants flourish against the backdrop of the rugged Caha Mountains. Take an excursion into County Kerry and Killarney National Park, which sits beneath the wonderfully named Macgillycuddy's Reeks, Ireland's highest mountain range.

Day Five

This morning finds us in the Isles of Scilly. Marco Polo anchors in still blue waters, giving you the opportunity to go ashore to explore Hugh Town on St Mary's and the flower-strewn byways beyond, and stunning Tresco, where the world famous Abbey Gardens house Britain's finest subtropical plant collection.

Day Six

Marco Polo arrives back in Cardiff at the end of a wonderful voyage.
