Board the Marco Polo in Cobh and set sail on an incredible 41-night cruise to the Amazon, Cape Verde, West Indies and Azores.

Vast swathes of jungle, home to extraordinary tropical plants and an abundance of colourful wildlife, Amazonia will undoubtedly be the highlight of this magnificent adventure that starts the moment you leave our shores.

On this incredible voyage taking you to the infamous Îles du Salut, sun-splashed islands in the West Indies, Cape Verde and the Azores, you’ll cruise the mighty Amazon and discover the largest tropical rainforest and most diverse ecosystem on earth!

Cruise Highlights:

  • Approximately 100 performers will thrill you at the Boi Bumba show in Parintins. A mesmerising carnival of music and dance with flamboyant costumes
  • From Manaus, visit an ecological park. Keep your eyes open for wildlife such as parrots and toucans, and you may even witness the giant water lilies in bloom
  • From Santarém, in the midst of the Amazonian jungle, there’s a chance to see rubber and Brazil nut trees, and perhaps fish for piranhas at Maica Lake
  • Make the most of your day on lush St Lucia by taking a tour across the island to see the dramatic Pitons, La Soufrière volcano, the Diamond Baths and the sulphur springs
  • Enjoy your final landfall in Ponta Delgada. Stretch your legs in the narrow streets and the paved squares with their geometric designs of black & white mosaics

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, is a fantastic way to make the most of your time on a cruise holiday and the stylish Columbus Lounge is an intimate spot where the head barman will soon get to know your favourite drink. Completing the quintet is Scott’s Bar, located on Amundsen Deck, an ideal haunt for night owls.

Other conveniences on board the MS Marco Polo include the well-stocked and comprehensive Livingston Library, and the Nansen Card Room, an Internet Café, and a shopping arcade offer entertainment of every kind.

The beautifully appointed Jade Wellness Centre, which offers hairdressing and beauty treatments, fitness and exercise equipment, and sauna and massage facilities is an oasis of tranquillity to refuel in after exploring ashore the world’s most exciting destinations.

There is an outdoor swimming pool, plus three whirlpools and a medical centre. In addition; and in-keeping with her heritage; the Amundsen Deck offers a traditional walk-around promenade, perfect for taking in the air on a Baltic City Cruise.

There is a good selection of comfortable cabin accommodation ranging from standard to deluxe with 70% of cabins on board the Marco Polo cruise ship having an ocean view. Category options are priced generally according to position, size and facilities.
