Slightly disappointed

We booked this cruise because of the Comedy Legends which we had experienced on a previous cruise. The embarkation was very quick, we had journed by coach from Victoria coach station which due to traffic took 1 & half hours. We found the cabin rather tired though the beds were comfortable, the wash basin was old and did not hold water very well due to a worn mechanical system. The shower ...

We chose it for the destination The food was awful 2* is being generous. The breakfast was the same very day greasy hard bacon cheap nasty sausage never changed . Every day was a stir fry or some obscure meat like beef cheeks nasty cheap food by the end of the cruise so many people were eating from the kids section as the food was slightly better. if you are vegetarian you would really struggle ...

We were last on the Columbus in June 2017 for the Iceland cruise, and booked this with two other friends. We had an upgrade to a Junior Suite with a balcony and, although the cabin had not been refurbished as far as we could see, was very comfortable and roomy, with a good shower and a sofa and armchair plus a small balcony. Embarkation was fine, reasonably well organised bearing in mind the ...

A bit disappointing

We chose this cruise because it covered the Christmas and New Year period. We have never cruised at this time of the year before, so we were looking forward to a new and interesting experience. The vessel has had something of a 'makeover', but some of the areas looked and felt very dated. Seating in some lounge areas was so dated and so low, that guests with any kind of mobility issues had ...

We are seasoned cruisers but never with Cruise and Maritime, so my partner and I along with 2 of our friends booked the Cape Verde Christmas and New Year cruise hoping for some winter sun which we got... Embarcation: this was ok, we had our Embarcation time sent to us with the tickets and final cruise information, once out of our taxi at Tilbury, porters quickly and efficiently took our cases ...

Christmas cruise to Cape Verde and the Canaries

The cruise had an appealing itinerary together with the opportunity for Christmas in a warmer climate. The cost was at the lower end. I believe we had value for money. The Magellan visited Amsterdam, Vigo, Lisbon, Cape Verde, Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, Madeira and, Leixoes (for Porto). We were allocated cabin 5078, adjacent to reception. It was quiet and in mid ships comfortable. In ...

We were looking for a no fly cruise to celebrate our friends 60th birthday, don't usually go in August but being a one off this fit the bill, it was just a lovely cruise, cabins were clean and well maintained by our steward, the food was excellent in the Waterfront dining room, didn't feel the need to use the other choice restaurants. The ports of call had enough interest based on the length of ...

Wheelchair assistance was requested but only one person was giving assistance so after a VERY long wait I had to walk on board with assistance from my husband. ONE PERSON WAITED FOR OVER 2 HOURS. The cabins are large and comfortable with a large TV on which only one channel ever worked. When asked about this reception explained that all the cabins have different channels, most of which were ...

‘Columbus’ sailed to Gibraltar, the Canary Islands, Madeira and Lisbon from Tilbury on 11th August and whilst I’m sure that there will be those that will find something to moan about, if you cruise with CMV and expect a ‘Cunard’ standard, then you will be disappointed. I found the whole experience far exceeded my expectations and my previous experiences with P&O. Whilst there was not perfection in ...

Not bad, but not particularly good either.

As a cruise I have no real complaints and it's not the reason I'm giving the poor overall review. I've been on many Cruises over the years and started off with the now extinct Airtours followed by Thompson Cruises and then moved on to P & O and Princess Cruises. It seems Cruise and Maritime have bitten off a little more than they can chew with the Columbus, but I think given time they will ...
