Sail Date: Feb 2020

This was our first cruise on C.M.V. so we were unsure what to expect. We had the quickest ever embarkation in Freemantle and first impression of the ship was very favourable and that opinion did not alter. The décor, layout and cleanliness of the ship was first class.

We had chosen an inside cabin 5240 and again was pleasantly surprised with the space, layout and décor and it was available as soon as we got on the ship, followed very closely by the luggage.

During the 26 nights we probably ate half of the time in the self service restaurant in the evening and the other half in the Waterfront Restaurants. The self service was O.K. but considering that 99% of the passengers were either Brits or Aussies I think that there was to much "foreign" food and not enough traditional food, but that is only my opinion.

Cabin Review

At the rear of the ship with little outside noise apart from the anchor, everything worked as it should, plenty of room and wardrobe space.
