Sail Date: Jul 2019

Chose this because of the attractive itinerary, plus the convenience of sailing from UK port with no flights involved.

As seasoned cruisers for many years ( principally with Thomson / Marella and NCL) we tried CMV for the first time this year.

I will start with the positives:- There is a good staff to passenger ratio, and we found the service was good across all departments. The cabin (6131) was spacious and clean, and well serviced by our cabin steward on a daily basis. The food was of an acceptable quality, and well presented, and served hot. The itinerary was good, with adequate time ashore in each venue. The DISembarcation at Liverpool was very speedy, and we were on the train home in little more than an hour after disembarcation commenced.

Cabin Review

Cabin ocean view

The cabin was spacious, with the twin beds in an L formation, which left plenty of floor space. The shower room was cruise ship average, but the lighting was poor. Always plenty of hot water at any time.
