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 ...

Falls short of its competitors.

Chose this because of the attractive itinerary, plus the convenience of sailing from UK port with no flights involved. As seasoned cruisers for many years ( principally with Thomson / Marella and NCL) we tried ...

What befell the Magellan

This is our 5th cruise, the 3rd on the Magellan. We were sent tickets and purple luggage labels, booked for parking at Newcastle. Boarding turned out to be horrendous, something went seriously wrong which CMV blamed ...

First cruise for me with elderly parents

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. ...

Good Start, Entertainment a Bit Old Hat

We embarked at Tilbury & I have got to say that the embarkation was not too bad & the cases arrived in a timely manner. We ate our Dinner in the Waldorf Restaurant which I could not fault the service was food & no ...

Magellan Cabin warning.

We have used CMV before on Marco Polo which was enjoyable with no complaints so were looking forward to a similar experience. To be honest the ship and cruise in general was up to expectation but we were far from ...

Great Itinerary but Mediocre Food

The Magellan is an older ship that was purchased by CMV just a year or so ago. No glitz, no atrium, few balconies but comfortable and in reasonable condition. About 1200 passengers, just about all British who enjoy ...

British Isles Cruise

We chose the cruise because of having travelled before with Cruise and Maritime on the Astoria which we enjoyed. Also the itinerary appealed to us. We opted for an inside cabin and was on deck 7. The cabin was ...

Would we go again?

We chose this short cruise to Amsterdam and Ghent to give us insight to what cruising is all about. The embarkation and disembarkation were a joke - on arrival we were a little early and after being sent to the ...

If Ryanair did cruises, this could be it.

My husband & I have taken around a dozen cruises with various lines inc. P&O Royal Carribean, CUnard, Celebrity, MSC & Fred. We took this short cruise to determine how we felt about the ship and cruise line before ...

A Cruise on the Briny

Having always believed that cruise food is pretty good, we were sadly disappointed. They must have shares in a salt company as everything was ruined by over-salting (apart from the porridge). The soup was always ...

Useless Captain, great staff

Great staff, from across the world. Must particularly praise our Ukranian waitress and her number two on table 153 in Waldorf Restaurant, Krystina and Ruslan. Also our super cabin boy Suwirka, who never stopped ...
