Portland Port’s cruise season got off to a surprise early start on Monday with the arrival of the Cruise and Maritime Voyages vessel Marco Polo. Her return to the UK from her previous cruise to South America and the Amazon river was delayed by adverse weather conditions last week which meant that the Marco Polo could not make it back to her turnaround port of Bristol in time to start her next cruise but instead had to head to Portland.
