Your Itinerary

  • Board Marco Polo in Tilbury, today, and settle in to your cabin as the ship prepares to set sail.
  • Spend your first two full days on board relaxing, and getting to know the ship, her crew and your fellow passengers.
  • The 'stretched' village of Kollafjordur welcomes Marco Polo to the Faroes today. Tiny Torshavn is the capital of this cluster of remote islands, home to countless bird species and a deep-rooted Norse tradition. On an optional excursion to other islands, you might cross the famous ‘Bridge across the Atlantic’, which connects the main island, Streymoy, with smaller Eysturoy.
  • Relax on board as Marco Polo spends another day at sea.
  • 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.
  • 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 as Marco Polo spends an evening and a full day here, and perhaps take a nighttime trip outside the city in search of the Northern Lights, the enchanting Aurora Borealis, that flicker across Iceland’s autumn and winter skies.
  • Spend another two days at sea, hopefully enjoying crisp air and sunny skies during the day, and the glimmer of the Northern Lights by night.
  • Today Marco Polo arrives in Kirkwall, Orkney's historic capital. Wander the streets and marvel at magnificent St Magnus Cathedral, or join an excursion to fabled Scapa Flow, Churchill's famous Barriers or the Italian Chapel.
  • Make the most of your final day aboard Marco Polo, reliving the memories your cruise to Iceland, as she cruises back to London.
  • Bid farewell to Marco Polo and all your fellow travellers, today, as you disembark at the end of your cruise.
