I’ve just returned from a cruise on the MS Magellan (18th Feb. – 4th March,) up the coast of Norway in search of the Aurora Borealis. This was the first time I’ve actually cruised before. This year the aim was search for / see the Northern Lights. May I compliment you and all the staff / crew of the MS Magellan for the professional way they performed their duties every day of the holiday. There was always first class, delicious food in the restaurants and nothing ever appeared to be too much trouble for the waiter’s / waitresses to assist. On top of this, the cabins were always exceptionally clean, and once again, nothing was never too much trouble for the cabin boy, (if that’s the correct term nowadays?) Then there was the ship itself and the amenities, sports facilities, games equipment, bars always open / available, large lounges and the show room it the evening was excellent. Then there was the holiday itself, two weeks up the coast of Norway, stopping off at regular intervals to explore the Norwegian cities / towns. Once again compliments, the range of excursions they were too was also fantastic – catering for everybody’s taste. Once again, compliments to you and the crew of the MS Magellan for a fantastic holiday. I’ll have no trouble in either travelling with you or recommending you at all.

Just returned from the Amazon trip. We had an amazing time. The staff were all very friendly, helpful and professional. It was hard to pick our star, but Mariia our cabin steward, no 7115, was our choice, she kept our cabin very clean, working round our comings and goings, whilst being very friendly and helpful. Lazar and Carlton, our waiters in Kensington table 112, were really friendly and made our dining experience very relaxing and entertaining. The food, wow! What a great selection and so tasty. We were really impressed by the presence of the Captain and senior staff around the ship daily. The Captain is a star at the karaoke! All the staff worked so hard to make everything run smoothly. The choice of trips were varied and the ones we picked more than fulfilled our expectations. If we ever go on a cruise again, this was our trip of a lifetime, we will definitely be looking at CMV and particularly the Magellan.

We would like to let you know it was absolutely terrific, and far exceeded our expectations. We have done a few cruises in the past but this one knocked the spots off of them. Everything about it was wonderful , the crew ,the cabin staff, the waiters, the girls on reception, the dining room staff especially , we could go on and on. A special mention about the entertainment, the singers, the dancers, the solo artists were all excellent as were the shore excursion staff. We honestly had a brilliant cruise with no complaints, So a big thank you and hopefully we can afford to sail with you again in the near future.

I would just like to thank you for finding extra space on the submarine trip on Lanzarote as this was the highlight of my holiday. Also thank you very much for the upgrade as this made an enormous difference to our cruise and we really appreciated it. Another thank you to the Manager of the Restaurant and Kevin the Waiter for looking after us so well and putting up another table in the Restaurant in order to accommodate our request for an early sitting. All these things made the difference between an OK cruise and an excellent one.

My wife Christine and I have just returned from our very first cruise and it was simply wonderful. We traveled from London Tilbury on 02/10/2017 and from the embarkation to the disembarkation it couldn’t have been any better.

Our first ever cruise and we had the time of our lives. Cruise on the Columbus went to France, Spain, Portugal and Gibraltar for 12 nights. We met some wonderful people who we will keep in touch with. Geremi, our cabin steward was charming and very helpful. The food was delicious and plentiful, and the entertainment was first class. Alex the "future cruise" chap was so friendly, helpful and accommodating - he was our star of the cruise with regards to what he achieved for us for the World Cruise we have booked for 2019. The highlight of the 12 nights was being invited to the Captain's Table for dinner on the second formal evening. I spent the last morning looking for a place to stow-away as I did not want to leave the ship. Thanks to all crew for making our first ever cruise so enjoyable and memorable. We will be back!

We have just returned from European Cities on Magellan and once again you have excelled. We had a lovely cabin, 7169, a fantastic cabin steward, Made Sudama, who was always cheerful and smiling and he made so many fantastic towel animals. Once again, thank you for another memorable experience, We shall have to start looking to see where we can go next with Cruise & Maritime.

Just returned from a wonderful cruise to the Norwegian Fjords on the Magellan and I wanted to congratulate your company for providing an above and beyond service. From embarkation at Tilbury to our return a week later was excellent. The service and commitment from every staff member we came across was exceptional. The ship was a delight to sail on and the entertainment that was provided was great. I was very impressed with how cheerful and happy the staff were and everywhere was spotless. We always felt very safe with the Captain in charge as he informed us of everything going on weather wise. We normally cruise with Thomson but not anymore. We are now going to start saving for our next trip with CMV. Thanks again.

Just wanted to say how much my daughter and I enjoyed our mini cruise to Dublin on the Marco Polo. The food was good, friendly attentive staff and a very enthusiastic entertainment team made our time on board a pleasure. Very good value for money, organisation on board was excellent. Boarding at Liverpool is excellent, we were on the ship within 10 minutes of arrival at the port. Well done to the Cruise & Maritime Voyages team.

My wife, her parents and I sailed with your company on the Magellan on the 23rd September 2017 overnight and I felt obliged to let you know how much we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We all agreed that we couldn't find a fault with our trip and have already recommended your company to several friends.
