Roadmark has teamed up with no-fly cruise specialists Cruise & Maritime Voyages to offer a one-night ‘taster’ cruise aboard the Marco Polo. If you are considering a cruise this is a good opportunity to sample life on-board. The Marco Polo is not one of the huge floating blocks of flats operated by the larger cruise companies, but has a quiet and intimate atmosphere and a capacity for just 800 passengers. Whilst she may not have the glamour and glitz of some of the bigger ships you will enjoy the relaxed atmosphere, comfortable accommodation, good food and great evening entertainment.
Prices shown are per person sharing a Standard Plus Twin Inner Cabin
Upgrade to a Standard Plus Twin Cabin Ocean View (Category 7) for an additional £17 per person
Upgrade to a Superior Plus Twin Cabin Ocean View (Category 11) for an additional £34 per person
Other cabin grades may be available – please enquire
Please note that door-to-door taxi service is not included on this short break. Join the coach at one of our convenient local pick-up points: HORSHAM, SOUTHWATER, ASHINGTON, WASHINGTON, STORRINGTON, WEST CHILTINGTON, and PULBOROUGH
Your Holiday Hotel
The 22,000 tonne Marco Polo is a familiar sight around British shores. She is a classic ocean liner with a traditional profile, beautiful teak decks and a distinctive blue hull. She provides a warm and friendly atmosphere that reflects a truly intimate cruise experience. Marco Polo is fully stabilised and air-conditioned, and has eight passenger decks. Dine in the impressive Waldorf Restaurant, the Indian Fusion speciality restaurant (supplement applies) or, as an alternative more informal experience, the stylish Marco’s Bistro. There are five lounges including the theatre-style Marco Polo Lounge offering sparkling entertainment from the highly talented show-team. Other facilities include a Library, Card Room, shopping arcade, outdoor pool and, in keeping with her heritage, a traditional walk-round promenade deck.
(DAY 1) Saturday 29th June
Meet the coach at one of our regular departure points for the short drive to Portsmouth to join Marco Polo. The exact pick-up time will be notified to you nearer the day, but we will probably arrive in Portsmouth around midday so that you can board the ship, enjoy a light lunch (included), relax with a drink in the bar, settle into your cabin and explore before sailing later this afternoon. We make our way out of the harbour, passing the Naval Dockyard, ferries and sailing boats small and large. Being midsummer, it will stay light until late so you can enjoy the cruise along the south coast. This evening enjoy a five-course dinner and a fabulous show before retiring to your cabin.
(DAY 2) Sunday 30th June
The ship docks early in Tilbury on the River Thames. This is CMV’s main port and we will arrive at the grade II listed London Cruise Terminal. Disembark Marco Polo after breakfast and join the coach for the journey home to Sussex.
