Marco Polo by day
As Marco Polo arrives in each port of call, you’ll have the chance to explore, either at your own pace or on shore excursions lead by knowledgeable tour guides. Back aboard the ship, a wealth of leisure facilities and activities ensure your days spent at sea are equally fun-filled.
Foodies will be spoilt for choice, with Marco Polo’s chefs going out of their way to cook delectable feasts from morning through to night. The health conscious can burn off the calories at the on-board gym, choose to go for a swim or opt to go for a turn around the complete circuit of Columbus Deck.
During your down-time, choose to indulge yourself at the Wellness Centre, where you might opt for a massage, a beauty treatment or a soak in a deck-top Jacuzzi. Alternatively, challenge you fellow passengers to a game in the Nansen Card Room, recline on a sun lounger next to the swimming pool, or cosy up with a book in the Livingstone Library.
A daily programme of activities and events will keep you entertained throughout the day. Perhaps learn millinery, calligraphy or the art of jewellery making at a craft session; attend fascinating lectures from guest speakers; test your general knowledge in the daily quiz; or keep fit at an exercise or dance class.
Marco Polo by night
Enjoy dinner each evening in the elegant Waldorf restaurant, the ship’s beautiful dining room, which operates two sittings. Alternatively, more informal dining takes places at Marco’s Restaurant, a light and relaxed bistro located next to the pool – the perfect spot for eating al fresco on warm days. On every cruise there will be Captain’s Welcome and Farewell parties, as well as a number of themed dinners at which you’ll enjoy local cuisine from the day's port of call.
Your evening might continue at one of the ship’s five lounges and bars, including the Marco Polo Show Lounge – where you can sit back to enjoy nightly cabaret shows. Alternatively, retreat to the Columbus Lounge piano bar or the Captain’s Club for a nightcap, or choose to dance the night away at Scott’s nightclub.
