A Charming Summer Cruise
Enjoy a quartet of charming calls during this northerly summer cruise on much-loved Marco Polo. Sit back, relax and savour the fresh, clear air as she sails to the Faroe Islands, a birdwatcher’s paradise, before turning south, to the Hebrides. Departing from Bristol Avonmouth, Marco Polo cruises north to the Faroes Islands and their exquisite toytown capital Tórshavn, calling en route at vibrant Belfast with its glittering Titanic Quarter development. Turning south, calls at picturesque Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis, the largest town in the Hebrides, and pretty Tobermory on Mull complete this highly enjoyable cruise.
