This was our 4th cruise with CMV, all of the other three being on the Marco Polo, which we absolutely loved. Although we enjoyed the cruise (we enjoy all of our cruises), there were quite a few things that could have been better: The cons The cruise was booked for 14 days, 5 days before we were due to go we were informed that the cruise was being cut short by one day, because of bad weather ...

We chose this cruise to see the Northern Lights. We didn't see them in bright colour, but I loved how we were let know each night there was a good chance of a sighting. Magellan isn't the fanciest ship we've been on, but it was certainly clean, warm and adequate for all our needs. The staff are constantly cleaning hand rails/ toilets etc all over the ship to reduce bug transmission. We ...

Worst Cruise we’ve ever been on...

We’ve just returned from 13 night cruise on the Magellan to Norway. We’ve done Royal Caribbean, P&O, TUI and one previous CMV cruise on the Columbus. It pains me to say that this was undoubted the worst cruise we’ve ever been on. The positives are more than outweighed by the negatives. Positives: Quality of food was very good, as were the Waiters and Wine Waiters. The Room maid was ...

The destination of the Amazon was the principle criterion for selecting this cruise. I also thought I was not paying a single supplement but came across more than half a dozen couples who jointly paid less than me so I feel duped. The onboard entertainment was a mixed bag. But lints is missing some performers. I walked out of some shows as there are only so many songs that I could cope with ...

THE WORST EVER CRUISE SHIP. Northern Lights Cruise Feb/Mar 2020 The good points, food we thought was quite good, staff in restaurants and bars very good. Cabin steward, Cabin 5009 very good always cheerful and helpful. We thought the dancers were excellent but the singers left a little to be desired. The two guest entertainers were way past their sell by date, a comedian who was so old and ...

Saw an online deal that looked like good value for money, learnt a lesson, you get what you pay for. Below are a few reasons I viewed CMV so lowly. 1. Departed 1 day late due to storms which is ok but to miss two ports as a result of loosing one day wasn't explained. 2. Tv didn't work for the duration on cruise (14 day), reported daily and was informed it is a widespread problem and they ...

Deciding that we would like a Christmas holiday together, my cousin and I chose CMV Magellan for the “21 night Christmas & New Year Cape Verde, Madeira & Canaries Cruise sailing from Tilbury on Dec. 18, 2019”. To start this review on a positive note, my first impressions were all positive. The terminal at Tilbury was decorated beautifully and had a festive air about it. Embarkation went without ...

The itinerary and the price together with promise of a couple of weeks of sunshine over Christmas seemed a very attractive propositio. Transport from Victoria and embarcation were very efficient and we were very happy with our Outside cabin on Deck 4.First impressions of the ship were good: clean, bright & open. From the beginning, however, the ship was cold both in the cabin and in the ...

WHY CMV COLUMBUS? --Baltic sailing --Smaller ship --Price DINING --We chose the late dining option for the Waterfront Restaurant. We also took most breakfast and lunch meals at the Waterfront. The food was good and nicely presented. The pasta selections tended to be soggy or firm. Otherwise the entrees were satisfactory. The appetizers, however, were outstanding. The cafeteria on ...

My best friend booked us this cruise for a girls trip. We were excited to see different parts of Europe and the ship was gorgeous online. Even better, the price appeared to be really good for the length and destinations of the trip. Our first night here, a waiter in the buffet tried to sell us prostitutes and convince us to go into Rotterdam with him that night to go clubbing. We declined. ...
