Full Itinerary

Day One: Depart from Cardiff

Board Marco Polo in Cardiff, today, and settle in to your cabin as she prepares to set sail.

Days Two and Three: At sea

Spend your first full days on board relaxing and getting to know the ship, her crew and your fellow passengers.

Day Four: Torshavn

Torshavn, the tiny capital of the Danish Faroe Islands, is Marco Polo's destination today. The Faroes are a birdwatchers’ paradise in the heart of the Gulf Stream, and their inhabitants live surrounded by natural beauty. Discover Torshavn’s confusion of lanes and narrow passages, black-tarred houses with turf roofs and modern centre, or join an excursion to another part of the islands, perhaps crossing the famous ‘Bridge across the Atlantic’, which connects the main island of Streymoy with smaller Eysturoy.

Day Five: Seydisfjordur

Today Marco Polo arrives in Iceland, stopping in the stunning natural harbour of Seydisfjordur, one of Iceland's most beautiful coastal locations. From here ferries and a sub-ocean telephone cable connect Iceland to the outside world. Wander the streets lined with Norwegian-style houses or head inland to discover yet more breathtaking countryside.

Day Six: Akureyri

Akureyri, on Iceland's rugged north coast, is a thriving winter sports centre and home to a fascinating Botanical Garden. The area beyond is wondrously scenic, and today's excursion, to the Godafoss Falls and volcanic Lake Myvatn, will highlight many of its delights.

Day Seven: Isafjordur

This morning Marco Polo arrives in tiny, exquisite Isafjordur, the capital of the Westfjords area, and gateway to the magical, mystical land of West Iceland from which Norse sailors set out to discover Greenland and the New World.

Day Eight: Reykjavik

Reykjavik is the world's northernmost capital. Its brightly painted wooden buildings contrast sharply with the stunning beauty of its setting beneath Mount Ejsa. Step ashore to explore, take the lift to the top of the Hallgrimskirkja Church for a panoramic view, or visit the fascinating Arbaer Folk Museum and the Saga Museum.

Days 9-10: At sea

Relax on board and relive the memories your cruise around Iceland as Marco Polo spends two days at sea, heading home.

Day 11: Cobh

Marco Polo arrives in Cork's long, narrow harbour at Cobh, 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 or to visit famous Blarney Castle, just north of the city, for a chance to kiss the Blarney Stone.

Day 12: At sea

Make the most of your final day aboard Marco Polo as she cruises back towards Cardiff.

Day 13: Arrive Cardiff

Bid farewell to Marco Polo and your fellow travellers, today, as you disembark at the end of your cruise.
