The Fjords are stunning, but the Magellan leaves a lot to be desired. Principally, the sewage system seems to be in permanent difficulty. We were by no means the only people to have to call for someone to fix the loo-flush. Also, there ... Read more

This was a 70th birthday present and it was a buy one get one free. Good food and service and being a small ship was not impersonal. You met a lot of people who were friendly and there were no children! We ended up not getting the ... Read more

Food was awful. Tasteless, and much like eating in a school cafeteria. Even the sitdown restaurant had the same food. Cabin was great, but we hardly slept. Don't know why as the beds were OK. Very old ship, and it's showing it's ... Read more

This cruise offered the opportunity to visit parts of the British Isles which are normally expensive or difficult to get to and the visits ashore were the best part of the holiday. The Astoria (formerly the Azores, the Stockholm, and ... Read more

We chose to sail on The Astor purely because of her itinerary. We thought is would be a great way to visit South Africa, instead of flying there. Our ports of call were, embarkation at Fremantle, Mauritius, La Reunion, Durban, Mossel Bay ... Read more

This is our third time with CMV, and the second time we’ve been on the Magellan. The value for money is outstanding, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Some of our fellow passengers obviously went on the cruise simply to find fault with ... Read more

Took the shuttle from Victoria so embarkation was very smooth because we were the last to board. Even so there was time to eat before boat drill if you had wanted to. My cabin 6090 was sold as a superior single, actually contained two ... Read more
