As the last flames of summer lick the magnificent land of Western Norway, board elegant Marco Polo to cruise through the still waters of a trio of exquisite fjords, to call at some wonderful places that dot their pristine shorelines and to take the opportunity, on shore excursions, to explore the beautiful countryside beyond. A visit to historic Bergen, birthplace of composer Edvard Grieg, is the final highlight of a memorable voyage.
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.

Day OneBoard Marco Polo in Rosyth today, and settle in to your cabin as she prepares to set sail.
Day TwoSpend today relaxing, and getting to know the ship, her crew and your fellow passengers.
Day ThreeThe tiny village of Flam, at the inner end of Aurlandsfjord, welcomes Marco Polo today. Here you'll have the chance to board the world-famous Flamsbana Mountain Railway for the journey to Myrdal. Later this afternoon, the ship navigates her way into stunning Naeroyfjord where some of fjordland's prettiest scenery awaits.
Day FourToday you’ll call at Olden. This tiny village of clapbpoard houses and rolling green pastures is the starting point for an excursion, through scenic countryside, to the famous Briksdal Glacier. This immense frozen cliff is actually just one of the 50 arms of the Jostedal Glacier, which covers almost 200 square miles of the surrounding landscape in an vast, slowly shifting blanket of ice.
Day FiveExquisite Geirangerfjord is one of the smaller fjords, but is undeniably among the most beautiful. Today Marco Polo cruises its twists and turns through a landscape marked by crashing waterfalls and ancient villages like Hellesylt and Geiranger. Disembark in Geiranger to take in the beauty of it all, or to enjoy an optional excursion.
Day SixCompact and friendly, Bergen was once a great trading city within the Hanseatic League. It remains Norway's second city and, despite being sheltered from the sea by its seven hills and outlying islands, is unashamedly nautical in outlook. Visit the vibrant harbour and fish market, stroll past the wooden warehouses of Bryggen and take the Floibanen funicular to the summit of 'Mount' Floyen.
Day SevenMake the most of your final day on board as Marco Polo cruises back to the Scottish mainland.
Day EightBid farewell to Marco Polo and all your fellow travellers, today, as you disembark at the end of your cruise. Back to top
