this was my wife and I first Cruise and we were both really looking forward to it,embarkation went smoothly and we were soon under way. We were assigned a table for dinner along with three other couples.The food was average although the presentation was good, and the other couples were good company. The entertainment on the first night I thought would be a sign of things to come, I wasn't wrong, it was embarrassingly bad, the singers couldn't sing,the cruise director looked like he was working out his notice, and would rather have been anywhere else but on board. The best singer was the waiter who gave our dinner table a rendition of (Iam sailing) The main reason I have for writing this review though is a much more serious one. My wife has never smoked and I cant remember the last time she had a chesty cough, By the end of the cruise she sounded like a homeless person who had just spent the winter on the streets of London and who smoked 20 cigs a day.This didn't just apply to my wife,i noticed whenever we went on shore excursions,(we went on3) at least 70% ofpunters were coughing and sneezing or in some way feeling not right.I sincerely believe shipboard environment is a very unhealthy one and anyone considering a cruising vacation should think about the health implications.

I will not re-state the title because we had a wnderful cruise. The food was excellent, the crew were excellent and the entertainment was excellent. The itinerary was as expected and enjoyable. The weather was as expected and changeable. If we had just pulled out into mid-Atlantic and gone round in circles, I would not have complained. The evening buffets/ displays should really have been photographed not eaten. I am not a wine buff but the house wines were good and much enjoyed. Embarkation at Tilbury was good, disembarkation was a little chaotic but we got there in the end. We had a table for four (163) where the bench seats were a bit low and my wife asked for (and was given) a cushion but if this is a complaint, it is a small one. The cabin was comfotable (6150) but I would have preferred a cabin with a bit of daylight - but this was my fault not CMV's. Overall - great!! Read Less

We're do I start to payed just over 650 each for a large inside cabin crew which was spotless our cabin girl elana was great cabin number 7092 so a good start to holiday ok the magellan is a old lady of the sea which gives you her lots of charm. as for the food it was realy very good the waiters and the chefs and we're first time class. The entertainment industry run by Johnathan and his team work in endless to entertain you plus a classical duo guest guest comedian and and opera singer and speakers and there was always something to do. We met at some lovely to people who and there were a few tears on the last day. On a negative note the passengers are a little on the older generation side which is nothing wrong with that but did a lot of complaining about silly little things instead of of looking for a the good things. Then there is was the young at heart that were having a good time whatever. Anyway thats it thank you to all the crew and to cruise and maritime a realy excellent cruise and I forgot to mention the drinks and package which is really good value for money even if if you're only a average drinker served by the hard working bar and restaurant waiting for staff Read Less
