Nice Cruise - spoilt by chaotic disembarkment

Ship felt a bit “old & tired" – the stairs were steep between decks. Tables not equipped for rolling – we experienced severe weather conditions where items just skidded off tables – lips on the edges of ...

Value for Money

So many negative comments about this ship which I thought unfair. When you book you know it's an old ship and that it's rated 3 star. We've just returned and had a great time. Because of the seriousness of the virus ...

Poor ship, but a great itinerary cut short

We chose this cruise for Iceland, and the Scottish islands. Overall, the itinerary was great, and from this perspective we loved the cruise. The weather was definitely against us, though, and some extremely rough ...

CMV - Magellan Well below expectations

We chose this CMV cruise on Magellan as it offered ports along the Norwegian coast not available with our normal cruise line, Princess. What a let-down!!! To begin with, a few days before the cruise we were ...

So bad it was laughable

Never heard of this cruise line or ship but got what I thought was a good offer from “trip a deal”, but you get what you pay for don’t you. The sail date was delayed by one day due to bad weather but we ...

Variable. Sometimes great, sometimes missed the mark.

Sometimes the food was great, sometimes very ordinary. The desserts in particular started to taste much the same - there was often no subtlety or nuance of flavour. It was just all sugar and chocolate. The only ...

Our second Christmas and New Year Cruise on the Magellan

Was it perhaps us? We’re not new to Cruise and Maritime, far from it, in fact. We were really looking forward to the Christmas New Year cruise. It was our third time on the Magellan, and our second during the ...

Absolutely appalling, nickname Fiasco Da Drama

It was visiting some of the places I’d never been. The first day we were given our key and we went to our room and it smelled mouldy. Over the first 15 days we were moved from cabin to cabin 6 times. We ...

Good food, comfortable ship, but management of daytime activities appalling

Reception Staff were polite but often did not appear to care too much. They had so many complaints to handle, many to do with inefficient airconditioning units I guess they became complacent. I have to admit I ...
