Cross the channel and explore Normandy

Join Marco Polo on a special Eastertime voyage, sailing from Bristol to the Normandy ports of historic Rouen and delightful Honfleur, and taking in the flower-strewn by-ways of the idyllic Scilly Isles and Guernsey's pretty capital. A passage through the meanders of the River Seine completes the relaxing break.

Ship Information

In an age of vast, impersonal, floating hotels, 22,000-tonne Marco Polo, her profile marking her out as the epitome of sea-going elegance, is a beautiful ocean-liner in the classic tradition. Offering high levels of comfort, sumptuous dining and a genuinely warm welcome from the crew, Marco Polo will offer everything you'd expect of such a high-class vessel.

Full Itinerary

Day One

Make your way to Avonmouth to embark before Marco Polo sets sail this afternoon.

Day Two

Spend today getting to know the ship, her crew and your fellow passengers as Marco Polo makes her leisurely way across the Channel.

Day Three

Crowded around its busy harbour St Peter Port is utterly charming. Fortified Castle Cornet is a 'must-see' attraction, as are the views from Candie Gardens. Visit stunning Hauteville House, one time residence of Victor Hugo, whose exquisite interior design is preserved in the house.

Day Four

Today you'll reach Honfleur, set at the mouth of France's River Seine. Visit this favourite retreat of the French Impressionists, with its harbour surrounded by gabled houses. Perhaps venture further afield on an excursion to Monet's idyllic house and garden at Giverny or to fashionable Deauville.

Days Five and Six

Marco Polo navigates her way into the heart of Normandy, sailing under the dramatic spans of the Pont de Normandie, Pont de Tarcanville and Pont de Brotonne to Rouen.

Marco Polo will spend the night here, giving you the opportunity to step ashore to explore this beautifully restored medieval city. See the site of Joan of Arc's martyrdom in the Place du Vieux-Marche, the famous one-handed clock and its stunning Gothic cathedral.

Day Seven

The Scillies are one of Britain's most verdant corners, often bursting into life weeks before the rest of the country. Step ashore to explore tiny Hugh Town on St Mary's and the flower-strewn byways beyond. Take an excursion to stunning Tresco, where the world-famous Abbey Gardens house Britain's finest sub-tropical plant collection.

Day Eight

Bid farewell to Marco Polo and all your fellow travellers, today, as you disembark at the end of your cruise. Back to top
