A kind of 'taster'cruise for us ,as we've not done one before but we were very impressed by everything and will certainly re-book another.

The car park at the port was difficult to find, the signposting was virtually non existant, when we found it it was full so had to find the overflow car park, which was not easy in a fully working port that has never been modernised. The embarkation was excellent, but the air conditioning in the cabin was useless, also very noisy, so couldn't sleep without turning it off. The bed configuration was single/twin, I'm used to a choice and double with my partner. The entertainment was useless apart from the classical girls. The food was good in the buffet, we didn't use the restaurant. The disembarkation was good apart from when we had to get the shuttle buses, it was a free for all, no organisation at all.

St Marys Bay, Kent Single traveller
it was a nice but too short (2 day break). next time I go for a 4 day break. Unfortunately it felt you arrive get settled into your cabin and the next minute your packing to go home again.

Thoroughly enjoyed the trip. Only negative comment would be to do with the lifeboat/life jacket drill which I thought was rather superficial and the attitude of the staff somewhat frivolous and slap dash.

Stamford, Lincolnshire Couple
We knew very little about CMV and had never cruised with them before. What an absolute pleasant surprise we had. The ship Magellan surpassed all our expectations. The service, facilities, organisation and food were exceptional. We have cruised with Celebrity and Thompson and have to say that you are absolutely on par with them, suffice to say that your cabins were far superior. The ships layout, with its excellent facilities, was particularly good meaning that no areas felt cramped even though the ship was full. The auditorium, wow, what a pleasant surprise that was and its layout meant that every seat had an excellent view. The Waldorf Restaurant was wonderful and the food and service equally so. The Christmas Market wasa first for us and was so well worth seeing. My Husband and I are well travelled and I myself worked for Inghams Travel for 20 years so our comments really are based on experience. We have recommended CMV to family and friends and we personally will definitely travel with them again.

Good short break, self service restaurant food could have been hotter and more choice.
