We have travelled on many cruise lines...Oceana, HAL, Princess, Celebrity, Star Clipper etc and so are seasoned cruisers. We tried CMV as we were considering a world cruise. And we are very pleased we did The price does not reflect the quality of food or cabin on board. We had better meals in the restaurant than we had on HAL or Celebrity. You do dress for dinner which we were very happy with. The cabins are dated but larger than the average because the ship is old. The bathrooms are considerably bigger than a modern cruise ship. All of the staff were excellent. And the entertainment was really good in comparison to many of the major cruise lines. Drinks on board were FAR cheaper than any other cruise line we have been on too. This is an older cruise ship but still has all the facilities we required...even a gym which I nearly used! The deck space is generous which is a reflection of a proper old fashioned ship and not the monsters of RCL So all in all, we are delighted with CVM and looking forward to our 78 day epic around Africa and Asia

A great little cruise ship
