You get what you pay for!

We chose this cruise based on itinerary. We knew that the ship was older and expected, "quaint!" and it was quaint. Very clean and over all, not bad for it's age. Had we wanted five star sailing, we would have gone ...

Cruising before Coronavirus

This was our first cruise on C.M.V. so we were unsure what to expect. We had the quickest ever embarkation in Freemantle and first impression of the ship was very favourable and that opinion did not alter. The ...

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 ...

Ship not "fit for purpose"

The promotion by Imagine Cruising (who were fantastic and very helpful) made this voyage sound like the "trip of a lifetime", so we took it to satisfy an important anniversary in our life. - VASCO da GAMA Cruise – ...

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 ...

A relaxed cruise meeting interesting people.

Originally, the ship was going to Komodo Island, but this was cancelled and Lombok was one of the destinations instead. However, we were told before we took the cruise. We had travelled on the ship before in 2006 ...

Struggled to reach it's 3 star rating

I will make this as honest and impartial as possible. We expected a 3 star budget cruise and it struggled to reach this standard. I will start with the embarkation. Singapore is not a good port to board from ...

Worst Cruise we’ve ever been on...

We’ve just returned from 13 night cruise on the Magellan to Norway. We’ve done Royal Caribbean, P&O, TUI and one previous CMV cruise on the Columbus. It pains me to say that this was undoubted the worst cruise ...

Variable. Sometimes great, sometimes missed the mark.

Sometimes the food was great, sometimes very ordinary. The desserts in particular started to taste much the same - there was often no subtlety or nuance of flavour. It was just all sugar and chocolate. The only ...
