Exclusively for adults
For the enjoyment of our adult passengers Marco Polo operates as a ‘child free’ ship. This means that even during school holiday times you can enjoy the pleasures of cruising in the company of adult passengers only. We will however accept teenagers who are 16 years old or above at the time of sailing but they must be accompanied by adult passengers. Families will however be welcome to cruise aboard Ocean Countess although it should be noted that there are no dedicated recreation facilities for children.
