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 ...

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 ...

CMV must do better

This was our 4th cruise with CMV, all of the other three being on the Marco Polo, which we absolutely loved. Although we enjoyed the cruise (we enjoy all of our cruises), there were quite a few things that could ...

Comfortable but room for improvement

The destination of the Amazon was the principle criterion for selecting this cruise. I also thought I was not paying a single supplement but came across more than half a dozen couples who jointly paid less than me ...

Our second Christmas and New Year Cruise on the Magellan

Was it perhaps us? We’re not new to Cruise and Maritime, far from it, in fact. We were really looking forward to the Christmas New Year cruise. It was our third time on the Magellan, and our second during the ...

There were parts of the cruise which were very good namely the cabin steward and the waiting and bar staff. Unfortunately there was a force majeur situation which meant that 4 stops on the itinerary were ...

Perfectly adequate budget cruise

I took this short cruise with my Mum as a quick festive getaway. We had low expectation due to the very reasonable price we paid and for the most-part our expectations were either met or exceeded. The ship is ...

Pros and cons but would probably go again

We chose this cruise as it was from Liverpool, which is much nearer for us than Southampton and much easier than flying. The ship itself, Magellan was old, we knew that before we booked and that as far as we were ...

Wake up, management!

We had a good overall experience on our “Grand Fjordland Splendour” cruise on the Magellan. Overall, we believe that the cruise provided good value for money. Nevertheless, some upsetting incidents arose that ...

Wanted to like this cruise but unfortunately I didn’t.

We had never sailed CMV before but was seduced by the price, not having to go to Southampton and the option of the Sicily Isles, something on my 80yr old mother’s bucket list. However, the first announcement on ...

Falls short of its competitors.

Chose this because of the attractive itinerary, plus the convenience of sailing from UK port with no flights involved. As seasoned cruisers for many years ( principally with Thomson / Marella and NCL) we tried ...

Underwhelmed by Iceland

We booked this cruise as it seemed an ideal way to visit Iceland and the Faroe Islands, something a bit different. Another bonus for us was embarkation in Dublin - no flights! We were onto the ship in 5 minutes. ...

We actually had a wonderful time on this 37 day Cruise. The ship itself was wonderful, and the staff that "waited" on us cannot ever be faulted. The problems seem to be on the small "issues". They all got the ...
