We booked this 6 months before departure so paid c. £3500 for 4 of us. Last minute passengers can pay much less (£500-600 each) and I imagine CMV struggle to break even. I had no problem with the price. Embarkation at ... Read more

We paid around £500 per person for our 7-night ‘Autumn Fjordland’ cruise. This is a cheap cruise. We generally cruise in a large party of 7 and we were only able to coordinate leave to be available to go away in the last ... Read more

Embarkation to Tilbury was quick and efficient. Only problem was the queue waiting to get in to the car park in Tilbury Docks. Once in, cases disappeared and we were on the bus to the cruise terminal. Once on board we were shown to our ... Read more

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
