Marco Polo
Orient Lines

Built in 1965 -- 22,080 tons -- 826 passengers (double capacity)


Christened Alexander Pushkin by her original Soviet owners, Marco Polo was designed with an ice-strengthened hull to sail in Arctic waters. 

Seventy percent of Marco Polo staterooms have an ocean view.

The Art Deco Seven Seas Restaurant on Marco Polo features etched glass partitions and a ceiling of Tiffany-style glass. 

The centerpiece of Marco Polo’s Polo Lounge is a white grand piano bar.

Daily afternoon tea is served amid the lush palms and rattan furnishings of Marco Polo’s Palm Court. 

Marco Polo cruise-tours are destination intensive and designed for adults so there are no playrooms or children’s facilities on board. 

Most Marco Polo European cruise-tours include hotel stays and sightseeing tours before and/or after your cruise. 

Vegetarian and low-calorie options are included on the Marco Polo’s main dining room menu.
