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 ...

Value for Money

So many negative comments about this ship which I thought unfair. When you book you know it's an old ship and that it's rated 3 star. We've just returned and had a great time. Because of the seriousness of the virus ...

Poor ship, but a great itinerary cut short

We chose this cruise for Iceland, and the Scottish islands. Overall, the itinerary was great, and from this perspective we loved the cruise. The weather was definitely against us, though, and some extremely rough ...

Unhealthy cruise to Iceland and Northern Lights

This was our sixth cruise, one of the previous ships also belonged to CMV, the Astor. The Astor was a lovely ship with the right number of passengers. We soon realised that most passengers on the Magellan had ...

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 ...

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 ...

Old and Overcrowded

This is a lovely Little boat. At 46,000 tons it is towards the top of the Small category. For a vessel of this size the cabin quality is good (4/5), but it is a little crowded. This was now our 12th cruise and ...
