On-board Management makes good money by promoting packages. Value for money is poor. Especially staff are not friendly & does awkward drinks. Cabins sometimes smells likes a fish. Entertainment is always the same excellent. Pool ... Read more

This was our fourth cruise on Astor in three years. We have always enjoyed the trips, but each time seems even better than the last. What I can say is: - Life is never perfect, so a big part of really enjoying your cruise is to ... Read more

I have to say I do not usually write a review because I think it colours peoples opinion of the ship before they have tried it. But I feel compelled to let everyone know what a complete shambles the whole experience was. The ship is ... Read more

Cabins were locked by old fashioned keys, as were the safes. The inside cabin we had (519) was very small, but it was clean. The single beds were bunk bed size and we were only able to fit a small suitcase underneath. The big suitcase ... 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

12 night cruise to Iceland/Scotland. Embarkation was quite quick. We did not have any of our passports or bags checked, there were 4 of us. Our cases came quickly except one. But not too bad. Not many of the staff spoke much English, ... Read more
