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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Excellent Christmas Cruise on Vasco Da Gama

My family and I spent 10 days on the ship and had a great time. If you want a value for money short cruise on a small ship that has excellent food and nightly entertainment then this is the ship for you. The ...

Best cruise in a long time

Booked the Xmas cruise a long time ago but were horrified to read the reviews of the ship after its recent acquisition by CMV. Looking at the reviews, it was clear that some writers thought they were with another ...

New year cruise disaster

I sailed on the 31/12/19 on the New Years cruise. The ship condition was ok certainly not up to bigger lines standards. The service on the ship (other than cabin staff) was terrible. Order drinks after getting on ...

Boring and very unorganised

Itinerary sounded wonderful until you board then fed a lot of rubbish as to why they didn’t dock at Wallaroo SA for a low tide??? Why we didn’t go to another port is baffling and had to spend a night at port ...

Thoroughly enjoyed the cruise despite missing the port of Wallaroo.

My main reason for choosing this cruise was to try out the Vasco da Gama on which I have formerly cruised as the P&O Pacific Eden and the Holland America Statendam. My suite was lovely and functioned very well. The ...

Leaving from Adelaide was the big attraction as the norm is a flight to the eastern states to catch a cruise. The smaller ship was ok but limited your choice of places to go and rest or a bar for a quiet drink. I ...
