I chose this cruise for a Birthday Retirement present for my husband The Good: Excellent food, entertainment, friendliness and hardworking staff were amazing The Bad: Music that did not suit the age group of the people on board as most were over 55 The Ugly: My husband died in July before he could have his holiday. When I rang in CMV to change the booking name to that of my sister-in-law (my husbands sister) I was told they would be charging me £232.50 as no matter how unfortunate the circumstances it is their policy to charge 25% of the holiday for this. CMV obviously lack compassion and are completely heartless. Although both my sister-in-law and myself enjoyed the cruise immensely I still feel robbed by CMV many other cruise lines do not charge to change booking names. I would have been happy to have paid an administration fee but I actually feel that they ripped me off while I was mourning the death of my husband. Read Less

Passenger handling through Tilbury was very quick and surprisingly warm for December! Our cabin was spacious, well appointed and extremely clean. Our steward was a lovely chap who was very pleasant and offered to help us at all times. Al staff encountered were extremely pleasant and so friendly. We ate in the buffet restaurant for breakfast and the Kensington restaurant for dinner. The service was superb in both. Meeting strangers for the first time at dinner is always interesting but the friendliness on this ship made it so relaxing. Our dinner and wine waiters were extremely good, making us laugh with their little jokes. The bar staff were so friendly and polite. The reception staff were so professional and helpful. We would definately go on this ship again and are looking at future cruises. Read Less

Being a couple age 28 I did not expect much - We were the youngest on the ship by far but still had a pleasant experience.. Ship was of average size but easy to walk around - Food was better than expected and service in restaurants was excellent! Drinks package is well worth the money. Entertainment very poor, Aimed at people 70+- Nothing for younger people. Rooms fairly spacious and very clean.. Good value for money and ports were excellent except for Hamburg, Why take us on a Sunday, when all shops were closed.. Staff do an excellent job - However having the Tannoy in your room in the mornings is very annoying and needs re addressing. All in all - Very good value for money but it is not a P&O or Royal Caribbean so expect to get what you pay for. Read Less
