I chose a 2 night cruise to see what the Marco Polo was like as I was planning to go on a much longer cruise (78 nights) and was unsure if I would enjoy life on this rather old and small ship for that length of time. I have been on larger ships for long voyages before.
Having read various reviews I was anxious to find out if they were accurate or not. On the whole I found them a good guide to the ship. Reasonably OK for a short voyage but not for any longer.
The main reasons for this are that the cabins lack virtually any sound proofing. I heard every word of the phone call that my next door neighbour was making. I was in a premium ocean view cabin. I could also hear music from the entertainment lounge in the evenings.
Virtually no sound proofing you would be dependent on how noisy your neighbours were to have a reasonably quiet time.
Facilities in the cabin were fine although a bit dated. This grade has tea and coffee making facilities. Fixed twin beds so no ability to change configuration. I gave it a 2 star as compared to other more modern ships cabins it was overpriced.
Moored very close to the centre of Rotterdam approx 20 min walk. Shuttle bus also provided.
