6 weeks of coughing and illness with poor catering and onboard lecturers

Picked this for the itinerary and had thought that, if nothing else, we would have knowledgable lecturers onboard, and possibly..hopefully..a commentary as we sailed the Amazon. There was NOTHING. The English speaking port lecturer had never visited the Amazon and plagiarised all and sundry delivering her information in a very poor manner. The infection running through the ship was something ...

Just to counter the negative reviews from others. We chose this cruise because it went up the Amazon and it was being heavily advertised and discounted just prior to departure. We never actually thought we would cruise, and most of the downsides I imagined were there, but there wasn't really anything I hadn't predicted, so the upsides more than made up for it. I want three things from a ...

My sister and I loved every minute of this cruise! We found Magellan to be like a well loved holiday home - not immaculate and glitzy, but comfortable, friendly and with plenty to do. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to an outside cabin, which was quite roomy with enough storage space for our 6 week trip (a pre-booking concern), and a great shower. The cabin steward, Viktoriya, kept it ...

A Thoroughly Enjoyable Cruise

Our departure from Tilbury was pretty chaotic. We travelled to the ship on their coach from London Coach Station and the last quarter of a mile took about 90 mins. The ship had arrived late from their previous cruise (the Canaries I think), because of terrible weather and so embarkation was backing up. However when we eventually arrived at the terminal everything was done speedily. Once aboard ...

I sometime wonder if the reviewers had been on the same ship as myself because I found this cruise to be very enjoyable and took me to those places that I had wished to visit in the past and the programme of visits was perfect. The ship is old and well travelled but one passenger was overheard in saying that they had never travelled on such a clean ship. The crew were constantly cleaning and ...

We were looking at a 50+ day cruise along the South American east coast but by the time we had made up our minds it was unavailable so our agent suggested this as an alternative. We booked in mid November and the price was very reasonable. We had spent a week last summer on Marco Polo so had a fair idea of what to expect from CMV, good clean ship, good service, good food and hopefully good ...

We wanted some destinations neither of us had been to before and the Amazon was very inviting, plus price was reasonable for the length 6wks . Did not expect 5star cruising but nor did we expect so much water where it shouldn't be! The cabin was of ample size, beds very comfortable, shower great. Food was acceptable but in buffet not great. Like an old fashioned noisy school canteen! The ...

The Ship itself: The Magellan is the noisiest, creakiest, most unstable ship that we have been on. If you don’t mind a rolling ship then it might be OK otherwise this is not the ship for you. The ship constantly rolls with every wave no matter how small. I set up an “inclinometer” to monitor it. From London to Amsterdam to Lisbon, the ship rolled from 0 to over 8 degrees to port. At one point ...

Surprisingly enjoyable bargain cruise

You either love the Marco PoloPolo despite its faults or the problems appear to become so magnified that they appear to be all you take from the cruise. Having read previous reviews we were a little concerned before we joined the ship. In the event we thought the cruise was excellent value for money that allowed us to visit parts of the world we had not visited before. Embarking at Tilbury was ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

We were first time cruisers seduced by the thought of escaping the English winter and the romance of the exotic places that we had never thought we might be able to visit. And so we embarked with a sense of excitement and optimism which is probably essential for a long voyage like this. We were not disappointed. We were greeted by smiling faces and an immaculate if clearly older ship and ...
