we wanted to try and see the northern lights at the northern tip of europe. The Magellans itinerary ticked all the boxes for us. We did indeed see the lights both from a shore excursion and from the ship's deck. it is a bucket list experience and were glad we did it. The service was excellent - staff worked really hard to make the experience enjoyable. nothing was too much trouble for them. The food was good although a little predictable, but choice in the bistro was somewhat limited. Seating in the Raffles area is limited and resulted in several long waits for a table. i don't know how they could improve this as there didn't seem any available room to fit in extra tables. The entertainment was good by both dancers and guests. The shore excursions were well managed and the guides were really well informed. All in all we enjoyed the cruise and would travel with CMV again.

All in all a very enjoyable experience

Cabin Review

Cabin 4114
clean and spacious but a little tired. Excellent cabin steward! No coffee making facilities - no mini bar.
