We had a very enjoyable holiday. We had a junior suite with balcony. It was a very spacious comfortable cabin and we were given a fresh bowl of fruit and canapés every day. Despite reading mixed reviews before our trip we found ... Read more

We sailed from Tilbury, a painless procedure, our bags were at the cabin before we were. The cabin was an outside with window twin, big enough for us with lots of storage space both drawers and hanging space, so we unpacked and went for a ... Read more

We chose this cruise as it fell in perfect time for school holidays, no children, smaller ship, local port and we wanted to see St Petersburg. We have sailed on Marco Polo a few years back so knew we were not getting a 5 star ship. ... Read more

We chose the cruise as the destination to the Baltics appealed. From the moment we arrived at the terminal we were made to feel so welcome and this progressed right throughout the whole cruise. We had a junior suite with a balcony and this ... Read more

This ship has been sailing with CMV for 2 months now and the teething problems reported by other reviewers seem to have been pretty much fixed. All procedures went very smoothly and staff were helpful and friendly. The cabin was ... Read more

I chose this cruise for the itinery and the price was competitive . Embarkation was easy and straightforward. Suitcases are left with the porters in the terminal and they are delivered to your cabin. I was on Deck 10 in a single ... Read more

This cruise was chosen as it included 2 days in St Petersburg. The Church on the Spilled blood has been on my bucket list for a long time. Embarkation was a little disorganised, but everyone was very nice, disembarkation was swift ... Read more

My mum and I took this cruise as we wanted to see St Petersburg and embarking from Hull was ideal as we live on the North Yorkshire coast! Embarkation was carried out quickly and efficiently and our suitcases delivered to our cabins within ... Read more

A good value cruise, but Tilbury was rather disorganised for embarkation especially as previously we had experienced Newcastle which was excellent. The ship is small enough to navigate where one needs to get to easily, without getting ... Read more

This was a trip arranged by my 79 year old mother-in-law as it was a 'BOGOF' deal, although still cost us £1400 each! The ship was tired looking, and the cabin was small (the smallest she had ever stayed in and she's a serial ... Read more

Crew were well trained, polite and very good, in some cases let down by management of restaurants and disembarking arrangements. The ship was very full. Food was good quality Raffles Bistro on deck 10 was a scrum most times of the day. ... Read more

Having just returned from a 12 night Baltic cruise, the Magellan is an older ship but this adds to its novelty. Embarkation was smooth, disembarkation was a bit chaotic, we did self disembarkation. The ship has great lounges, 2 ... Read more

Found this cruise online and the itinerary was the main attraction. To be honest I hadn't heard of CMV before, having traveled with P&O, Royal Car, Princess, NCL and Ocean Village. Without any doubt this cruise was up there with the ... Read more

This cruise is not good for disabled people, the gangways are to narrow, my wheelchair wheel came off two times. The toilet in the cabin is too low and I needed help in getting off of it. They state that a wheelchair must be below 23 kg ... Read more

Just returned from a Baltic cruise on Magellan and had a great time. As with any holiday there are always niggles or things that you would prefer to be different, but the good far outweighed the bad. When we arrived at Tilbury using ... Read more
