This year, specialist tour operator Newmarket Holidays offers
a fantastic programme of 2012 ocean cruises, on board elegant Marco Polo and delightful Ocean Countess.
The cruise ships depart from several ports across the UK, with Marco

For a break offering relaxation, fascinating excursions, superb value-for-money and
good company, Newmarket’s cruise holidays are the perfect choice. The two wonderful
cruise ships promise all the comforts of a good hotel with first-class entertainment– including light-hearted quizzes, port lectures and exercise classes, excellent
food, comfortable cabins and a friendly crew.
Newmarket’s 2012 cruise programme offers a fantastic range of destinations to choose
from. If something a little bit different is the order of the day, Marco Polo’s
Majestic Fjordland Cruise, from Newcastle, is the ideal choice. With calls at
Bergen, Flam and Stavanger, this scenic cruise takes in the magnificent fjords of
Western Norway clothed in all their springtime glory. For something closer to home,
Marco Polo’s British Isles Discovery Cruise and Scottish Isles Cruise navigate the
UK and Northern Ireland’s stunning coastlines.
If you’re looking to embark on a cruise from Leith, Marco Polo’s Baltic Treasures
and St Petersburg Cruise uncovers some of Europe’s most fascinating sights – from
delightful Copenhagen, medieval Tallinn and Tsarist St Petersburg to Scandinavian
gems Helsinki and Stockholm, as well as Warnemunde – gateway to historic,
fascinating Berlin – and transits of the famous Kiel Canal.
Also sailing from Leith is the Marco Polo Diamond Jubilee British Isles Cruise,
which offers the chance to celebrate the Queen’s 60 glorious years as Marco Polo cruises around the UK, calling at some of its best known port cities.
Ocean Countess cruises from Hull include the great-value Bank Holiday Break Cruise.
Ideal for a weekend break, this short cruise offers the chance to enjoy a taste of
sailing and includes calls at two wonderful cities, Hamburg and Amsterdam. Ocean
Countess cruises from Liverpool offer the chance to soak up more of Europe’s
fascinating culture on the more leisurely 13-day Baltic Cities and St Petersburg
For an unforgettable cruise taking in some spectacular natural sights, Ocean
Countess cruises from Greenock sail to the stunning land of fire and ice, on the
Iceland Wonders and Northern Isles cruise. Ocean Countess also sails from here to
the Canary Islands and Madeira on a wonderful summertime voyage 'south to the sun'
and the Atlantic’s warm blue waters.
A beautiful ocean liner in the classic tradition, Marco Polo is the epitome of
elegance and enjoys an impressive reputation amongst British cruise holidaymakers.
Offering sumptuous dining in stylish surrounds and a desk space with plenty of
viewing opportunities, this is a home from home. With its shopping arcade,
sunbathing areas, internet room and Wellness Centre, Marco Polo caters to every
