Marco Polo

Orient Lines History

Destination cruise specialist Orient Lines, having celebrated its 10th birthday, carries its experience-seeking guests to far-flung destinations in 2004, offering a collection of 57 separate CruiseTour itineraries sailing from the Cote d'Azur to the Baltic, Scandinavia and Russia.

Quick View

The former Russian spy ship Alexandr Pushkin, a mid-size vessel with cozy nooks for quiet moments and wide, teak decks with lounge chairs for basking in the sun, also has been updated with welcome amenities including a casino, nightclub, health club, library, tea room, and more. An ice-strengthened hull makes Marco Polo ideal for Antarctic expeditions. Don’t look for all the whistles and bells of newer megaships, but do count on a very comfortable seagoing home away from home for longer itineraries.
