Day 4

Lisbon, Portugal
Arrive: 0900hrs Depart: 2200hrs The Portuguese capital Lisbon stands on the River Tagus, down which the great adventurers sailed during the Age of Exploration. Today's shore excursion will introduce you to a city where the maze of narrow, hilly streets of the Alfamar district have stood, seemingly unchanged, for centuries.

Day 6

Gibraltar, British Overseas Territory
Arrive: 0700hrs Depart: 1700hrs Today Marco Polo arrives at the tiny British territory of Gibraltar, set beneath its famous Rock. Explore the very British Main Street, and take the cable-car to the summit of the Rock, not only for the tremendous views to the Atlas Mountains in Morocco, but also to meet the famous Barbary Apes.

Day 7

Casablanca, Morocco
Arrive: 0800hrs Depart: 2100hrs This morning Marco Polo docks in Casablanca, renowned for its connections with the celebrated movie, but today a world away from Humphrey Bogart's sleepy town. Startlingly modern, but retaining a sense of the past in its ancient medina, the city offers wonderful beaches, some designer shopping and the fascination of the gigantic Hassan II Mosque. Today also offers up the chance to join an unforgettable shore excursion to Marrakesh to explore the tiny stores, alleys and hidden courtyards of the souks, and its vast, bustling square, the Djemaa El Fna.

Days 8 and 9

Cadiz and Seville
Arrive: 1200hrs (Day Eight) Depart: 2000hrs (Day Nine) Ancient Cadiz, with its elegant squares, great Cathedral and wonderful Botanical Garden, is a fascinating city. Step ashore to explore or to join our optional excursions, which might include a trip to Seville, the Cradle of Flamenco and the site of the dazzling festivities of its annual Feria. Stroll through the historic streets to the cathedral and its soaring the famous bell tower, visit the wonderful Alcazar and see the city's impressive bullring.

Day 10

At sea
Spend today relaxing on board.

Day 11

Leixoes, Portugal
Arrive: 0700hrs Depart: 1300hrs Today's call in Leixoes offers you the chance to join an optional excursion to Oporto. Famed the world over for its port wine, "Porto" is perched on granite cliffs above the River Douro, which is crossed by several vertigo-inducing bridges. Explore the Ribeira district, and perhaps visit one of the wine lodges for which the city is so well known.

At sea
Spend today relaxing on board.

Days 13

Cobh, Ireland
Arrive: 0800hrs Depart: 1400hrs Early this morning, Marco Polo arrives in Cork's long, narrow harbour of Cobh.

Day 14

Arrive in Bristol Avonmouth
Arrive: 0830hrs Bid farewell to Marco Polo and all your fellow travellers, today, as you disembark at the end of your cruise. Back to top
