New Zealand cruise

WE chose this cruise as it went from our home port of Adelaide so was an easy decision to make. The ship is getting on and looked tired in places but the cabin and entertainment areas were decorated very nicely. ...

Not up to Princess's usual standard

Embarkation at Adelaide was a nightmare. No one available to help with the bags, was expected to move them myself. A bit difficult at 74 with two large suitcases. Wilson security staff kept giving contradictory ...

Average Cruise - Wouldn't recommend to anyone as a First Cruise option

After cruising with many different cruise lines, we thought we would give CMV a go, especially as we had previously sailed on the same ship when it was previously owned by P&O. Very disappointing on the 11days we ...

Woeful

Embarkation was handled well - took us less than half an hour from arriving at the terminal to get on board. Our first cabin (10047) had issues - these were obvious as soon as we arrived. It smelled mouldy and ...

New Years cruise not great

Billed as the New Year Cruise experience out of Adelaide for 2 nights. The ship was not up to the main task of providing a great NYE experience. The management (not the overworked crew) are to blame. The Ship is ...
