We arrived at Tilbury about 15 minutes before our embarkation time. The embarkation was a shambles with people not really knowing what was happening. The ship itself is getting on a bit and awkward to find your way around as you ... Read more

Having been on several cruises in the past, always with Cunard, it was with trepidation that I booked a trip on CMV Magellan. Magellan is a Holiday Class ship, so you would be forgiven if you thought it would be full of rowdy young ... Read more

Chose this cruise on price and destination. Destinations were really good. Price wasn't really the bargain it seemed. Everybody on board had some kind of deal making it feel a bit like a cruise by a well known furniture store. Ship ... Read more

We chose this cruise on the Magellan because it was visiting the Baltic. I do not have complaints about the cruise itself, the ports of call were good and the food etc and entertainment were good. But we were given a terrible cabin, ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we have always wanted to visit St Petersburg and the 2 day stop at this city did not let us down. We chose the 2 day package and visited the Winter Palace (The Hermitage), the Summer Palace (Catherine's ... Read more

I chose this cruise as it visited some great cities: Copenhagen, Warnemunde, Tallin, St Petersburg, Helsinki and Stockholm, I booked through Solos holidays so I would have other solo travellers to have dinner with. From the moment I ... Read more

Over all the cruise was very good. We chose it for the itinerary. Staff, entertainment and food is first class. The Magellan lacks the 'wow factor' experienced on other cruises. The cabins were small and the general condition felt ... Read more

Chose this cruise as I had always wanted to visit St Petersburg. Magellan, despite her age is in fair condition and my inside single cabin was comfortable and clean, indeed the cabin steward did an excellent job whilst remaining ... Read more

I've had some good river cruises, but this was my first sea cruise so I'm not sure if it was typical. I did not have a good night's sleep for all of the 12 days. We were in a top price cabin - barring a suite. The nose & ... Read more

Like many posters I was originally put off by negative reviews, but luckily a friend had just travelled on Marco Polo & enjoyed, so I thought in for a penny! The fact it would cost me more (as a solo passenger) to do a 7 night cruise ... Read more

We choose this cruise as the destinations sounded interesting. We had read some differing reviews of this trip so was naturally sceptical, however from the very professional and streamline embarkation at Tilbury to the disembarkation at ... Read more

Chose this cruise as the Ports of Call were all just where we wanted to go. As we live in Debyshire Hull was so easy to reach. Once on board not so sure on our choice, cabin sloped down hill making quite a high step in to shower etc. ... Read more

This was the second time we have been on the Baltic Cities & St Petersburg cruise, and just as with the first time, it was thoroughly enjoyable. We sailed from Hull in East Yorkshire and the operation there was so smooth; drove car ... Read more

The itinerary was ideal for us and Newcastle was easy to get to from home. Embarkation was easy and we were quickly reunited with our luggage. Cabin 5009 had a porthole rather than a window but as it was an upgrade from an inside one ... Read more

We sailed on Marco Polo to Baltic and St Petersburg May 2016 and could only rate the cruise as average- ish. The cabins are quite dated and no tea/coffee making facilities but were clean and the cabin steward great. The shopping ... Read more

As we had spent two months on the Cruise and Maritime flag ship M/V Magellan from middle of December 2015 to middle of February 2016, I was rather concerned how the Marco polo cruise to the Baltic would go. The Magellan was rather ... Read more
