Get your Christmas Season off to a hugely enjoyable start, as Marco Polo heads across the Irish Sea from Bristol to lively Cork. Dressed in its festive finery, the cultural centre of southwest Ireland boasts several galleries, bustling (St) Patrick Street and Grand Parade's colourful Christmas Market. Do some Christmas shopping and make the most of the ship's array of on-board amenities and festive fun and entertainment.
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 vessel.
