This summer sailing combines coastal scenery with history-laden towns. Kirkwall is your gateway to the Standing Stones of Stenness as well as Skara Brae - a Stone Age settlement that predates the pyramids. Lerwick, county town of the Shetlands boasts Clichimin Pictish Fort as well as Jarlshof - a remarkable archaeological site. Finally, unspoilt Torshavn, capital of the far flung Faroes, would still be recognisable to its early Viking settlers.
With her traditional handsome profile, teak decks and distinctive dark blue hull, Marco Polo is a fully stabilized classic ocean liner with comfortable lounges and elegantly furnished bars and restaurants.
