Interesting Iceland Itinerary

Magellan Cruise Review by helgatours

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jul 2018
  • Destination: the British Isles & Western Europe

We chose this cruise because of the Itinerary. We were a little hesitant because of some bad reviews. We found it value for money for what we paid. It is a 3 star cruise line.

What we liked:

The food was absolutely lovely

Ocean view cabin spacious, clean and well maintained

Staff were very friendly

Very interesting guest lecturers.

What we did not like so much:

The disembarkation was a total joke. We opted for express check out only to wait for hours near Deck 4 and then when finally allowed off, were then told to go up to deck 8 for immigration processing.

Lack of communication, staff not fully trained and able to answer some simple questions.

Guest act of a comedian (Jimmy Carlo) total rubbish and should be ashamed to be called an entertainer.

Entertainment was a hit and miss, the resident performers do really try, we also saw them performing other duties during the cruise as in tours, reception, activities etc. So they really are all rounders.

We thought that they were understaffed especially in the dining room.

Yes it is an older ship.

Overall I would recommend in particular if it was an interesting itinerary.
