The 36 night cruise from London Cruise Terminal in Tilbury departing on July 24, 2015 went on sale earlier this month. Prices start at £3,225pp based on a deal that is available until June 30, 2014.
Mike Hall, head of marketing at CMV said, ‘interest in Marco Polo’s 50th Anniversary cruise has far exceeded our estimates and expectations. In just three weeks, since announcing this unusual programme, we have sold out several categories of cabin.’
From Tilbury Marco Polo will head off to the Shetlands, then up to the Faroe Islands and on to Iceland. The ship then cruises to Greenland and includes visits to Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, the St. Lawrence River, Québec and Montréal with a call into Cobh (Cork) Ireland on the way back to Tilbury.
