Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Aug 2017
  • Destination: Norwegian Fjords

Overall, I would say we were happy with this cruise from Rosyth to Longyearbyen then back again. I'm not convinced I would cruise again with CMV, it would depend on the itinerary.

The Good:

The price was reasonable as we got a last minute deal, yet had a better cabin than those who did not get the same deal...

The cabin was clean.

There was a good choice of food at the buffet.

The Bad:

The food was mostly always look-warm/under-cooked/overcooked

The fish on the menu was not fresh.

Keep your receipts to check later.

The Ugly:

Some of the staff obviously did not want to be there. e.g This is the only cruise I have been on to date where upon returning aboard we were met with complete silence from the staff scanning the boarding passes.

I reported something serious to be told by staff they were busy and "not to worry as we are almost home".
