MS Marco Polo is part of the fleet of the British company Cruise & Maritime Voyages. The ship was built in 1965 as MS Aleksandr Pushkin at the Mathias- Thesen Werft in the former East-Germany. It was one of five identical sister ships that were ordered by the Baltic Shipping Company from the former Soviet Union. The ships were designed to both be able to sail regular services and cruises. It is one of the last ocean liners that is still sailing today.
In 2015 the ship celebrated its 50th birthday. This is exceptional as an average ship gets put out of service after around 40 years. At that age the maintenance costs tend to become too high, but at the moment this does not seem to be a problem for the company.
Throughout the years the ship only changed names a single time. In 1991 the name was changed from Aleksandr Pushkin to Marco Polo. At the moment (2018) it is one of the oldest still sailing cruise ships that, with a few small rebuilds, is still in a fairly original state. On top of that all the engines are still original from 1965.
