Wanted to go to the ports and having travelled with cruise maritime on the marco polo previously thought i would try another ship. Embarking was good and had no problems with this. Ports of call excellent and had a good experience especially st Petersburg, would recommend this. The crew were excellent the ship and cabin were clean and the waiters etc looked after you. Entertainment - This was very good and the entertainers were superb. But i always book the second dinning in the restaurant, to goto the show after the meal, not on this ship, show time is before the meal on this ship, no wonder there was no one in the restaurant, we also started to go to the buffet, then we could attend the 9pm show, from 10pm there was nothing else to do but go to the bars and drink, not for me. Meals. Breakfast it is the only time i ended up skipping this meal, the bacon was like trying to eat a piece of leather sausages looked under cooked, lunch and dinner were alright but the food was uninspiring, and lacked the usual cruise experience. After travelling on the Marco Polo previously it was such a different disappointing experience on the Magellan.

Overall destination and crew excellent, but the worst of 14 cruises
