Marco Polo Life on Board

The Marco Polo is brilliant if you want to enjoy a laugh at sea. From the stand-up comedy to the vibrant choreographed shows, there's plenty to keep a smile on your face.

Marco Polo Lounge

After dinner the show team would enjoy the pleasure of your company in the comfortable theatre-style Marco Polo Lounge as their artists display their talents in a snappily choreographed revue or colourful floorshow – all you need to do is just sit back and enjoy.

Following the great success of many guest acts from the field of comedy Cruise & Maritime Voyages have launched ‘A Laugh on the Ocean Waves’ where, on selected cruises, you are invited to enjoy the talents of one of their guest comedians. Laughter is the best medicine so enjoy the talents of their comedy acts with their dedicated evening shows, hear them talk about their life experience and listen to their Comedy Corner interviews with the Cruise Director.

Internet connection is available from the terminals in the Internet Café, located near the Beauty Salon on Columbus Deck. A Wi-Fi system is available on Magellan Deck whereby there is a Wireless Hotspot access point in the Reception area and close to the lounges.
