Staff food and entertainment good. Weather could have been kinder.

We were a group of six friends on the Scottish Isles 8 night cruise from Newcastle finishing somewhat bizarrely in Liverpool. Embarkation was extremely fast and painless. We are gold members and have priority ...

First Time Cruise - Northern Isles

This was our first, but hopefully not our only, cruise so we have nothing to compare against. As first-timers I will say one thing firstly: the instructions given each day were a great help and all the things I ...

What befell the Magellan

This is our 5th cruise, the 3rd on the Magellan. We were sent tickets and purple luggage labels, booked for parking at Newcastle. Boarding turned out to be horrendous, something went seriously wrong which CMV blamed ...

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 ...

Fjords

We chose this cruise because we got an excellent deal and it was sailing from Newcastle. We weren't sure what to expect with it being an older ship but were pleasantly surprised by decor and cabin. I must ...

Good value for the money you pay

Chose to cruise the Fjords for 7 days. After reading reviews was not expecting the ship to be up to much, but to our surprise it was a lot better than reviews we had read, having been on P&O, Royal Caribbean cruises ...

Norwegian fjords

The embarkation at Newcastle was seamless we were in our cabin 30 minutes after getting to the port with our luggage delivered to the cabin. The ship is getting on but is spotlessly clean. We had an inside ...

Better Than Expected

As a first time cruiser I was unsure what to expect, Magellan is an older ship but was scrupulously clean and very comfortable. I had read many varied reviews before the cruise and have to agree that some ...

Great Itinerary, Average Ship

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary and date. Which is the main reason we cruise. The ship and cruise line are secondary to us. Embarkation: No problems. Nothing to note. Ship: Older, smaller ...

An Old Style Cruise

With misgivings, we booked a 1 night taster on this venerable ship, for nostalgic reasons! Decades ago, when she was under Gerry Herrods ownership, we enjoyed some adventurous cruises on her,; to Antarctica, up ...

A Cruise on the Briny

Having always believed that cruise food is pretty good, we were sadly disappointed. They must have shares in a salt company as everything was ruined by over-salting (apart from the porridge). The soup was always ...

Great Cruise for Under £700

First cruise ever, so we were a little apprehensive. But as the Magellan ship is a small/medium size it is a good choice for a first cruise. Embarking at Newcastle was great and very easy. The steward met us and ...

Great speakers. Interesting ports visited around the UK

Actually chose this cruise due to an engine failure on one we booked. Interesting ports around the Uk where few other ships go. Though this is an old ship from Carnival, it was well maintained and clean. Had an ...
