ms Marco Polo (built 1965, joined the fleet in 2010, last refurbished in 2017) is the first of the CMV cruise ships – with fleetmates Astor, Astoria (Azores), Columbus, Magellan. The vessel was originally built for the Russian “Baltic Shipping Company” during the USSR times. Back then, the ship was named after the most famous poet of Russia – Aleksandr Pushkin. After the fall of the Soviet Union, the newly renamed ms Marco Polo joined the fleet of now defunct Orient Lines, which operated the vessel between 1993 and 2008. Following an extensive refurbishment in 2010, the Marco Polo ship started operations for Cruise and Maritime Voyages.
