Magellan Cruise Review by JonBee

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: May 2018
  • Destination: Europe
  • Cabin Type: undefined

Have never been on a cruise before, so decided an 'overnighter' would be a good introduction, and have to say we enjoyed every minute. To be honest we weren't expecting much for what we paid, but it soon transpired that like many others we spoke too, it was amazing value. Check in was quick and efficient, as was parking at Tilbury. Our cabin wasn't ready on boarding, but we were directed to the bistro to grab some lunch, which was a unexpected. We heard many comparing the Magellan with other ships, but couldn't fault it. It was clean and comfortable, with plenty of places to sit and relax. The emergency drill was a bit drawn out (and disorganised) but had to be done. Our cabin was excellent (Atlantic Deck, Outside Superior) and bigger than we expected. The staff in the restaurant's and bars couldn't do enough, and the food excellent. Drink prices were reasonable too. The evening entertainment was a bit 'Butlins' however the classical 'Duo' in the piano lounge were excellent. Overall the cruise exceeded our expectations.

Cabin Review

Cabin 9 6034

Spacious, clean and comfortable. Tea making facilities and TV with cruise map, weather etc. was nice touch. Even though we were only on it one night, cabin staff made a real effort to ensure everything was 'spot on' inc. turn down at night.

Well organised disembarkation, quick and comfortable coach transfer back to Tilbury
