WHAT DOES THE PRICE INCLUDE?
Day One: Depart Bristol Avonmouth
Board Marco Polo in Bristol today, and settle in to your cabin as she prepares to set sail.
Days Two and Three: Cork, Ireland
This morning Marco Polo cruises into Cork's Cobh harbour, where she'll spend two full days. During your stay you'll have time to explore this historic capital of southwest Ireland, and join shore excursions through the beautiful rolling countryside to Kinsale or Blarney Castle (where you'll have the chance to kiss the Blarney Stone and receive "the gift of the gab"!).
Spend your days exploring and shopping for last-minute Christmas presents, and your evenings back on board Marco Polo enjoying fine food, entertainment and festivities.
Day Four: Arrive Bristol Avonmouth
Disembark in Avonmouth today, at the end of your pre-Christmas cruise.
Days marked above with an anchor include ports where you will be transferred to shore by landing boat. These ports may be inaccessible for customers with mobility difficulties as a result. Any days not listed will be spent at sea.
British Citizens will need a full, 10-year passport to travel on this cruise. Since some countries require visitors to be valid for at least six months after the return date of the cruise we recommend that all customers ensure that this is the case. Holders of non-British passports should check with the relevant embassies to see if any requirements and restrictions exist for any countries visited during the cruise.
