Sail Date: Dec 2019

I chose the four night East Coast Discovery cruise to welcome CMV's Vasco Da Gama to Australia. I was not disappointed.

Long a fan of Astor and Columbus for the last couple of years Vasco Da Gama was a test.

Sadly the weather turned nasty on Bass Strait and our planned stop at Burnie was cancelled. We stopped for most of the 2nd day at sea at Eden instead. The Capt. had advised of big seas and very strong winds on Bass Strait. No complaints from anyone.

Cabin Review

Single use of a twin/double bedded balcony cabin on Deck 9 aft.

Cabin was spacious and perfectly air-conditioned the whole time. A rather heavy looking dark brown leather sofa was a bit disconcerting on arrival but was comfortable. Deep Balcony with a small table and 2 chairs. Welcome aboard complimentary bottle of Greek wine and a 2 litre bottle of mineral water - and a small kettle and cups/tea/coffee etc.

There was also a basket of fruit and a small plate of canapes.

Bathroom was standard size but contained a spa-bath.

Updated décor since Holland and America and P&O evident.

CMV do offer a generous single/solo passenger fare grade unlike most other Lines
