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.

We sailed on the Magellan in September (Rock the Boat Cruise). We had a ball and it was down to your excellent food and staff well done. Absolutely nothing at all to moan about drinks were reasonable and free tea and coffee made a big difference. All on our table were well satisfied all around. We won't hesitate to book in the future.

I have recently returned from my first cruise with Cruise & Maritime Voyages and would like to say that both my wife and I had the most fabulous holiday. We were on board the Magellan that sailed from Dundee on 4th August to the Norwegian Fjords.

The whole experience was amazing. Food, entertainment and crew made it all such a great experience. I was in Cabin No 6130 and would like to give a mention to our cabin steward, Yana, who was such a pleasant and helpful person. A credit to your company.

Mario, the Hotel Director, was a gentleman and always took time to speak to us and his affection for the company was obvious.

All in all it was a truly memorable holiday and we will definitely sail with you again. Thank you for making our first cruise such a fantastic experience. I have recommended CMV to many people since our return.

We have just returned from our first cruise, Summer Gardens and River Seine, and enjoyed it immensely. The staff aboard Magellan were fantastic, as were the food and itinerary. Our restaurant waiters, Vilroy Gomes and Htet Aung, made meal times very special for us. We particularly enjoyed the lobster thermidor – the tastiest lobster I have had in a very long time. My wife particularly enjoyed the vegetarian options.

Our cabin steward Edi had our cabin spotlessly clean always and was very attentive and friendly. The entertainment team did a fantastic job and the program of events and activities was very good. The bar waiters were all very smart, polite and efficient and we are looking forward to joining CMV again for further cruises.

Thank you very much for a wonderful holiday. We have lovely mementoes with our on board photos, taken by the professional photographers.

We have just returned from our week away on the Columbus and for the first time we feel the need to email yourselves and congratulate yourselves on a suburb ship and fantastic crew. We were a party of 6 and for 4 of them, we had to persuade them to try a cruise. From the time we arrived, we were on the ship within 15 minutes everything was perfect. From the upgrade to outside cabin, food, entertainment was second to none.

We will cruise with you again, I'm trying to persuade my husband to do the Norwegian Fjords next August with my sister who is booked with yourselves. Many thanks once again and our family are already looking at the next cruise.

We have just arrived home from our cruise to the Baltic on the Columbus and we would just like to say thank you for a wonderful time. The service was excellent and the crew were always so helpful and friendly the meals were a delight. Our table steward could not have been more attentive. Our cabin steward Alfred was always asking if he could do anything for us nothing was too much trouble for him. Thank you again for a wonderful time it was our first cruise it was for our 50th Wedding Anniversary we had a wonderful time and we hope to go on another cruise in 2019.
