Marvellous Magellan

Having previously done a Hurtigruten cruise, we wanted to try a “proper” cruise. That is one that has entertainment in the evening and I get to dress up a bit. We chose CMV because they leave from ports in ...

Excellent in every way - except one.

Our intention - my wife and I - was to cruise leisurely on a ship which was neither very large (ocean going) nor very small (such as on a river cruise), to visit places we had never been to, and where we would ...
