This was our first cruise with CMV and we were certainly not disappointed. Marco Polo is an old ship but has plenty of character and is well looked after. The staff are extremely friendly & helpful, giving the impression that they enjoy looking after their passengers.

The cabin was immaculately clean and kept that way with the towels changed with alacrity by our smiling stewardess.

At dinner on the first night we mentioned that I am allergic to peppers but if notified I would make a selection from the more than adequate choices. However, this would not do for our waiter who arranged for me to get a copy of the next days menu. I then chose my meals and if any dish contained peppers, this was made especially for me (this level of service is not always available in top hotels). The food was superb and the choices abundant. The problem being not to eat too much.

Due to weather and a strike , the itinerary had to be changed but this was done and the passengers were kept informed at all times. There were a choice of new excursions offered. and again the staff were wonderful. A varied selection of lectures, crafts, games etc. were available on sea days if they were wanted.

Although the waiters and bar staff passed among us, there was never any pushing to buy just there when you needed them.

Altogether the best cruise that we have undertaken even on more expensive ships.

We have no hesitation in returning for the Amazon cruise in January and recommending this company & ship to anyone.
