This was our first cruise and we loved it, chilled out and took it for what it was..w new it was an older ship and not massive so you can feel the motion if your sensitive to it but my husband and our other dinner guey had great sea legs and felt norhing mot of the time. We got the VIP drinks package and it is definately worth it for all cocktails on menu and nice coffee. The shows were mediocre some good and some not so good but staff work very hard and were always on the go .Fair play to them all, bar staff included. Food was good and plentiful in restaurant and if busy people were very oblinging letting is double up on tables and we meet aome lovely people. All guest were very friendly and engaging throughout . We had fabulous Indian on the Saturday night well worth the extra which was half price on VIP package. We only booked one trip with cruise, cheaper to do it yourself on trip advisor. In Flam booked Segways great fun and super way to see village. Bergen lovely but book seperate from cruise. Our tour guide as lovely though. Nice art gallery in eidfjord. Stravanger nice to walk around. So glad we went. People need to be less critical and not so impatient. Some guests rudeness as nothing short of embarrassing, you can't expect staff to give 100 per cent if guests are rude. Read Less

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 was a permanent, very heavy smell of sewage within the cabin. During sailing the cabin doors are closed, so one could think that it was only ones own cabin that had the smell. However, on disembarkation day, when all doors are open, it became clear that this was a problem throughout the cabins on Level 5, and most likely on other levels too. We were in cabin 5127. We reported the problem re the flush and it was attended to promptly. We also had to call the plumber during the night, to fix the flush. On reporting the smell, a plumber came and simply did not understand that it was not the loo, but the sewage pipes under the floor. I should also mention that there was a case (there might have been more) of NoroVirus on level 5. Two passengers were quarantined to their inside cabin (no window) for two days. We were instructed, at the start, about hand hygiene. However, the staff did not always adhere to this, nor did many passengers. Entertainment included a Journalist talking about his experiences. Oh my goodness, he had no idea how to deliver such a talk. It was woeful. Dana was the principal entertainer, and of course she is the consummate entertainer. The staff were all excellent. The evening meals were very good. Indeed, the Starters chef was brilliant. Queuing and table-hunting at the breakfast and lunch buffet was a pain. If having breakfast or lunch in one of the restaurants, you had to sit at tables of eight which can be difficult. Suffice to say no more Magellan for us. Read Less
