Make your way to Avonmouth to embark before Marco Polo sets sail this afternoon.
Spend today getting to know the ship, her crew and your fellow passengers as Marco Polo makes her leisurely way across the Channel.
Marco Polo navigates her way into the heart of Normandy, sailing under the dramatic spans of the Pont de Normandie, Pont de Tarcanville and Pont de Brotonne to Rouen.
Marco Polo will spend the night here, giving you the opportunity to step ashore to explore this beautifully restored medieval city. See the site of Joan of Arc's martyrdom in the Place du Vieux-Marche, the famous one-handed clock and its stunning Gothic cathedral.
Today Marco Polo will cruise back the Seine to Honfleur. Visit this favourite retreat of the French Impressionists, with its harbour surrounded by gabled houses. Perhaps venture further afield on an excursion to Monet's idyllic house and garden at Giverny or to fashionable Deauville.
Crowded around its busy harbour, St Peter Port is utterly charming. Fortified Castle Cornet is a must-see attraction, as are the views from Candie Gardens. Visit stunning Hauteville House, one time residence of Victor Hugo, whose exquisite interior design is preserved in the house.
Relax on board as Marco Polo spends the final full day of your cruise at sea.
Early this morning, Marco Polo arrives in Cork's long, narrow harbour of Cobh. Shore excursions here offer you the chance to discover this historic capital of southwest Ireland, to head into the beautiful rolling countryside to fashionable Kinsale or to visit famous Blarney Castle, just north of the city, for a chance to kiss the Blarney Stone.
Bid farewell to Marco Polo and all your fellow travellers, today, as you disembark at the end of your cruise.
