I have just had a fantastic holiday on Magellan from Sydney to Hong Kong. The wife and I really chilled out on deck, the food was excellent and the ship clean. The staff well trained and a credit to your company. This ship is 30 year old and ran like a dream which is a credit to the engineers and crew on board. I have travelled on bigger liners etc, with the large companies and for us CMV will be the future. Value for money! Keep it up.! We have booked again for 2018 Amazon Cruise. thanks again we were sad to leave our temporary home!

Have just returned today from the Spring Gardens and River Cruise on board Astoria. Just to let you know we had a wonderful trip - could not fault anything! Staff were lovely and food great. We even had beautiful weather. Excursions and shuttle coaches were well organised. Cabins were very comfortable, surprisingly so for a ship built in 1948! Many thanks and look forward to more cruising with CMV.

I just had to write and say thank you for a fabulous holiday, having just spent 27 nights from Sydney to Hong Kong, on board your ship Magellan, what a fantastic ship, very friendly, staff were excellent, ship was spotless, food excellent, beautiful ports of call and great value for money. I will be recommending CMV to everyone, hence I have already booked back on the Magellan next January for The Amazon /Brazil and cannot wait.

We've just returned from the 14 night Northern Lights Cruise aboard Astoria and I'm writing not only to thank you for the upgrade but also the excellence of the ship and the crew. Everybody is friendly and helpful and the ambience is superb. The quality and value for money cannot be bettered and we are committed to CMV - keep it up. We have four more cruises booked for this year and next. Thank you so much.

My wife and I would like to express our thanks for the excellent service we received on our cruise on the Marco Polo that ended on Monday February 1. We cannot recall a single event where we met even one of our staff that was even miserable, everyone was pleasant, cheerful and very helpful, from our cabin steward, right though to our waiter, we were delighted. The outstanding way the staff enabled many people who were somewhat less capable than others to enjoy the experience was amazing. I am certain, as was stated by several passengers, “if this was P&O they would have just cancelled the excursion”. The crowning glory was when we arrived at Portland, when arrangements had to be made at the last minute to dock there as we were unable to dock at Bristol, how on earth the staff managed to handle 800 people in such difficult conditions when tempers were up and people were agitated, well I don’t know! Brilliant, just Brilliant. Thank you.
