SHOCKING!

The noise in the cabin was dreadful. It was sold as a superior plus. Day and night, there was banging, rattling and what sounded like very loud power washing. These noises would would regularly shock us awake. ...

Pros and cons but would probably go again

We chose this cruise as it was from Liverpool, which is much nearer for us than Southampton and much easier than flying. The ship itself, Magellan was old, we knew that before we booked and that as far as we were ...

First and probably only time on a cruise

We were a family group of six, siblings and spouses, and for all of us a first time. It seemed good value but you’ll pay hefty prices for services, drinks and excursions so be cautious about your budget. ...

Wonderful cruise on a friendly and well-run ship - great family value

This is the fourth cruise we have been on, with various lines and destinations. Departed Liverpool, seemlessly, and cruised to Dublin, then on to the Shetlands and then to the Norwegian Fjords. It does amaze ...

Wanted to like this cruise but unfortunately I didn’t.

We had never sailed CMV before but was seduced by the price, not having to go to Southampton and the option of the Sicily Isles, something on my 80yr old mother’s bucket list. However, the first announcement on ...
