Black / yellow exhaust smoke spoils the aft decks

We were looking for a cruise around X'mas time and the New Year, so the cmv Magellan to Madeira Cape Verdes Canary Iles seemed OK.

We embarked in Amsterdam and soon found out that the average age of the passengers was about 80.Lots of wheel chairs, electric scoot mobiles with beep sound signals etc.

The cabin was OK and the steward was exellent. Only the airco smell in the cabin was like a smokers room that lasted for 22 days.

Cabin Review

Cabin superior plus twin

Very nice cabin, good shower, carpet was old,beds narrow, television channels very poor mostly no reception of international channels due to bad sattelite reception system.

WIFI speed is very slow, you pay GBP 59 and fall asleep during use.So forget about the wifi and save the 59
