Day One: Depart from Rosyth
Board Marco Polo in Rosyth today, and settle in to your cabin as she prepares to set sail.
Day Two: Kirkwall
Today Marco Polo arrives in Kirkwall, Orkney’s historic capital. Wander the streets and marvel at magnificent St Magnus Cathedral, or join an excursion to fabled Scapa Flow, Churchill’s famous Barriers or the Italian Chapel.
Day Three: Lerwick
Our next port is the Shetland capital, Lerwick. Spend time exploring this rugged but enchanting town, or join an excursion to the 3,000 year-old archaeological site at Jarlshof, with its Bronze and Iron Age remains.
Day Four: Torshavn
Torshavn, the tiny capital of the Danish Faroe Islands, is Marco Polo’s destination today. The Faroes are a birdwatchers’ paradise in the heart of the Gulf Stream, and their inhabitants live surrounded by natural beauty. Discover Torshavn’s confusion of lanes and narrow passages, black-tarred houses with turf roofs and modern centre, or join an optional excursion to another part of the islands, perhaps crossing the famous ‘Bridge across the Atlantic’, which connects the main island of Streymoy with smaller Eysturoy.
Day Five: At sea
A final day at sea, reliving the memories of your cruise holiday.
Day Six: Arrive in Rosyth
Bid farewell to Marco Polo and all your fellow travellers, today, as you disembark at the end of your cruise.
