Cruise and Maritime Voyages: Marco Polo

Marco Polo Staterooms

Cabins: There are 15 accommodation categories on Marco Polo, and the ship's 425 well-maintained, brightly decorated rooms in blue, green, and red are adequately spacious and vary in size. All cabins have individual thermostats, safes, direct-dial phones,

waffle-style bathrobes, and TVs. The most luxurious Deluxe suite on deck 7 has a separate living area, minibar, 19-inch flat-screen TV, and walk-in wooden mirrored closet. Its attached marble bathroom is equipped with a shower and bath, towels, bathrobes, slippers, and hair dryer. More modest cabins have either a twin or double bed, mirrored dressing table in honey-colored wood, closet, shower, and hair dryer. The ship has no balconies. The water from the taps in all cabins is chlorinated but nonpotable, and bottled water is available in rooms or from any of the ship’s bars at extra cost. All cabins have both 110v and 220v current and have electrical sockets to allow small appliances such as electric shavers and curling irons. l Bring a European two-pin adapter to use your dual-voltage appliances.

Bathrooms: The higher-category cabins have marble detailing with a tub/shower combination with solid door. Smaller rooms have fairly standard, modular-style bathrooms with tiled floor and a small shower stall. Expect a scuffed sink or stained grout, typical of a ship older than three years.

Accessibility: Due to its age, Marco Polo is not suitable for passengers with special mobility needs. There are many raised-door seals that can restrict passenger movement about the ship. Passengers can bring foldable wheelchairs to store in their cabins for shore use.
