I went on this ship Magellan For the first time Found it to be very clean Food was very good Cabins also good staff worked hard around the she ship Some passengers had Coughs awhile they were on-board but the sun most days made up for feeling a little under the weather. Entertainment was good shows I Liked the Cruise director Gary was always around to make you laugh Raul The singer was also fun to watch The team who did The Entertainment worked hard under what looked like long days. there is lots of space Around the ship to relax will book again for this ship only have postie comments to make Nice holiday and very good for the money when I read other reviews it makes me wonder what ship they were on. I have been on many other ships and CMV do a good job with this Ship Read Less

We took this cruise as it was convenient to our home and needed a break. We have cruised for 20 years and have never experienced such a miserable cruise. 5 hours late in departing which we understand can't be helped. The ship then went back to Antwerp which they said was due to bad weather. We were due to go to Gibraltar and therefore missed out Lanzarote. We picked up a lady and a child who were family cruise members. The ship is advertised as child free! I was told that they would only be allowed in crew areas but they went anywhere in the ship and disturbed guests.Trades description! The cruise was supposed to be festive. The Christmas dinner was disgusting and no one had heard of mince pies or Christmas pudding. Decorations were non existent. The staff worked hard but were restricted by the appalling management. The cruise home was through the Bay of Biscay in a force 9 gale. Necessitating the use of a helicopter to lift off injured folk. Many folk, including the child and mother had left in Lisbon as they were aware that the Bay was going to be very rough. In fact folk had been leaving throughout the cruise as food and entertainment was the worst we have ever experienced. Cruise Maritime refused to accept that it had been a disastrous cruise and wanted folk to go through the trouble of ABTA because they know that guests were so fed up they couldn't be bothered. I can only sum up by saying that it may have been a one off terrible cruise. They knew it was well below accepted standards and should have held up their hands and apologised. I would never cruise with this company again. After cruising with most companies I feel able to classify thus company as deceptive and having no care for their guests. My advise is just don't trust them. They want your money but not are prepared to provide the basic services. Read Less
