Staff food and entertainment good. Weather could have been kinder.

We were a group of six friends on the Scottish Isles 8 night cruise from Newcastle finishing somewhat bizarrely in Liverpool. Embarkation was extremely fast and painless. We are gold members and have priority ...

First Time Cruise - Northern Isles

This was our first, but hopefully not our only, cruise so we have nothing to compare against. As first-timers I will say one thing firstly: the instructions given each day were a great help and all the things I ...

First timers

Having read previous reviews we were worried about going on our first cruise. Please make your own mind up. We live 20 minutes away so embarkation was efficient and quick. No waiting around in airports for hours. ...

Excellent in every way - except one.

Our intention - my wife and I - was to cruise leisurely on a ship which was neither very large (ocean going) nor very small (such as on a river cruise), to visit places we had never been to, and where we would ...

It's all about the itinerary - Greenland aboard Marco Polo (21 day cruise)

Why this cruise? We chose this ship due to the superb itinerary and reasonable price point. For less than half the cost of 1 week on board an "expedition" ship, we spent 3 weeks visiting Faroe Islands (1 port), ...

Good for singles who like traditional cruising

I was actually on the Baltic cruise 10/8/17 but for some reason cant choose that date. Very few cruise lines offer single cabins at a reasonable cost (+25%) or sail from Northern Ports (I live in Scotland) - CMV ...

Good value for the money you pay

Chose to cruise the Fjords for 7 days. After reading reviews was not expecting the ship to be up to much, but to our surprise it was a lot better than reviews we had read, having been on P&O, Royal Caribbean cruises ...

Norwegian fjords

The embarkation at Newcastle was seamless we were in our cabin 30 minutes after getting to the port with our luggage delivered to the cabin. The ship is getting on but is spotlessly clean. We had an inside ...

North Sea Island and Iceland Adventure

We choose this cruise because of the itinerary and the value for the dollar (pound). It did not disappoint. The ship is a bit old and tired, but was clean and very acceptable. The cabin was a Standard Twin Plus ...

Great Itinerary, Average Ship

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary and date. Which is the main reason we cruise. The ship and cruise line are secondary to us. Embarkation: No problems. Nothing to note. Ship: Older, smaller ...

An Old Style Cruise

With misgivings, we booked a 1 night taster on this venerable ship, for nostalgic reasons! Decades ago, when she was under Gerry Herrods ownership, we enjoyed some adventurous cruises on her,; to Antarctica, up ...

Much better than we thought it was going to be.

Have given this very good based on food quality (which in fact was excellent), cleanliness and friendliness of service (practically all the staff went the extra mile). The entertainment was pretty good too as were ...

Very Enjoyable Cruise to Iceland and Northern Isles

We chose this Cruise to Iceland because we could join the ship from our home town of Dundee. We found embarkation very easy, cases taken from us the minute we alighted from our taxi and the process to board was very ...

Great Cruise for Under £700

First cruise ever, so we were a little apprehensive. But as the Magellan ship is a small/medium size it is a good choice for a first cruise. Embarking at Newcastle was great and very easy. The steward met us and ...

Well done to C&M Voyages, and the brilliant staff of the MS Magellan!

I feel people are being far too harsh in their reviews of this great ship. I have been on a number of cruises, including Cunard's flagship, the Queen Mary 2 - So I feel I am in a good place to review ships, ...

As the eternal optimist, there were so many negative reviews about Magellan, that even I was getting downhearted. As usual I should have trusted my own instincts. I cruised on Discovery last summer enjoying it ...
