Your Ship The Marco Polo - The Marco Polo cruise ship offers a wide range of public facilities including the impressive Waldorf Restaurant offering a traditional two-sitting fixed time dining option and, as an alternative for those wishing for the more informal experience, the stylish Marco’s Bistro. There are five main lounge areas. The Magellan Deck offers the theatre-style Marco Polo Lounge while the elegant Captain’s Club is a perfect venue for pre-dinner cocktails with the resident pianist. Relaxing in the Palm Garden, with wonderful panoramic ocean views and the stylish Columbus Lounge is an intimate spot . Completing the quintet is Scott’s Bar, located on Amundsen Deck, an ideal haunt for night owls. The beautifully appointed Jade Wellness Centre is nature’s secret of well being on the Marco Polo. It offers hairdressing & beauty treatments, fitness and exercise equipment, and sauna and massage facilities. Why not indulge yourself with life’s most perfect gifts: relaxation, invigoration and rejuvenation. Treat yourself to a spa package and design your own special day. There is an outdoor swimming pool plus three whirlpools and, in keeping with her heritage, the Amundsen Deck offers a traditional walk around promenade for that daily exercise or romantic stroll before you decide to call it a night.
