Having always believed that cruise food is pretty good, we were sadly disappointed. They must have shares in a salt company as everything was ruined by over-salting (apart from the porridge). The soup was always cold and tasteless, ... Read more

First cruise ever, so we were a little apprehensive. But as the Magellan ship is a small/medium size it is a good choice for a first cruise. Embarking at Newcastle was great and very easy. The steward met us and showed us our free ... Read more
