We have cruised only once before and that was with Saga. On this occasion we had a Junior Suite (Cabin 404.) The extra expense of the more costly cabin was well worth it; the accommodation was spacious with a good sized bathroom, a ... Read more

My husband and I recently returned from a wonderful cruise around the Baltic on the Marco Polo. I had great reservations because of reviews I had read and almost made a decision to cancel the trip. How wrong I would have been so ... Read more

This was only our second ever cruise, the first being a British Isles trip aboard Marco Polo which we enjoyed immensely. We found that embarkation at Tilbury was nowhere near as slick and easy as our experience at the CMV desks in ... Read more

We enjoyed our Baltic cruise but were not impressed with the Magellan. Everything was just below par except for the staff who were very helpful. The food was very ordinary. Some guests ordered veal and got ham. When this was pointed ... Read more

Travelled with my sister and brother-in-law. My husband and I had been on five cruises before this one and this has to rate as the best. The food was superb with plenty of choice. It was available from 07.00 to 21.30 with midnight ... Read more

Overall a lovely cruise, we had an outside cabin, with a window, which was spacious with plenty of hanging and storage space. All the staff on board were helpful and friendly. The food was very good especially in the buffet. Lunch in the ... Read more

We had seen a number of pretty average reviews before our cruise and were expecting a reflection of that but I have to say we were pleasantly surprised on a number of levels: 1. The food was exceptionally good every day with a hint of ... Read more

Having read some of the negative reviews about Magellan I can't say I was exactly looking forward to our recent trip but my fears were unfounded. From start to finish the cruise was absolutely amazing. Our arrival at the Tilbury car ... Read more

loved the destinations, price, and easy boarding. The ship is old dated but beds in cabin comfy, showers great. Bad points it WAS noisy, passengers need to be aware of this if they are early risers or late revellers. Ignorance is ... Read more

After booking on the Magellan for the Norwegian Fjords trip I felt downhearted as I read the reviews, it wasn't nearly as bad as reported, although I do have to agree with some of the comments previously reported. I took along ear plugs ... Read more

If you have been on many cruises then you will probably be disappointed with the standards on board this ship. It is all a bit tired, the bedrooms and bathrooms need updating and redecorating. The ship is showing its age and years of ... Read more

As someone who doesn't generally write reviews (good or bad) I feel moved to say that my first cruise with CMV will be my last cruise with this line. I am not a seasoned cruiser having done fewer than 10 cuises with the likes of P&O ... Read more

In common with, I believe, a lot of people who had booked a cruise on the Magellan I was worried about what we might find. There was no need to. I am no seasoned cruiser and have not traveled on and of the big names company ships, but it ... Read more

Our holiday began the moment we stepped on board. All the crew were friendly and welcoming and looked after us very well. The cabin was spacious and clean and our cabin steward provided excellent service throughout the cruise. We ... Read more

My wife and I had a hugely enjoyable cruise, the main reason for going was to visit St Petersburg but the other destinations were interesting. The ship is spotless both inside and out , maintenance is continuous and any faults or problems ... Read more

Just returned from a great cruise to St Petersburg on CMV's Magellan and thought I'd write a note to allay the fears of others who may have been concerned about some of the early reviews. To cut to the chase, CMV offer very good value but ... Read more

We were attracted to Marco Polo because of the cruise itinerary and the pricing. Refurbished in the 1990's, starting to show some weariness. It's too small for 800 people. We were lucky to have a convivial bunch of Scots on board. The ... Read more

My husband has a few mobility problems and a couple of years ago we decided that cruising might be our way forward. We were fortunate to chose Marco Polo for our first cruise as the crew really go the extra mile for passengers. We have ... Read more

Funny and not funny: Embarkation was supposed to be Leith but changed to Rosyth on the 11th Hour (excuses ranged from technical problems to tide problems !) but we were informed this was the norm for this ship---and here we go--- a ... Read more

We have just returned from a Baltic cruise from Rosyth I went with some trepidation having read some reviews. If you are expecting a modern ship with many facilities and are under 50 this will not be for you. However we found all the staff ... Read more

This cruise ship was advertised as refurbished. We found that only the public areas were spruced up. The gangway was steep and very was not an inviting sight to embark the ship by. We spoke to one lady who said she was not leaving the ... Read more

The two positives about this cruise were leaving from Newcastle and the ports of call. Marco Polo sells itself on being an old but classic ship, it is old but certainly has no class! Everything about it was a disappointment. We had ... Read more
