Went on the inaugural trip of the Columbus to Amsterdam and Antwerp from Sunday 11th June - Wednesday 14th June with our grown up children and their partners as we were celebrating my significant birthday. Just wanted to say "well done" to everyone at Cruise and Maritime. Ship's facilities are lovely, dining was great, shows were fun and we will certainly be cruising with your company again. The Tilbury terminal flower displays look lovely and the parking arrangements were a great.

I have recently had the very great pleasure of cruising around Britain on the Columbus. I have to say that I enjoyed it all! The itinerary was perfect for me and, although we could not visit Ullapool and Tobermorey, we were blessed with a visit to Belfast instead, a brilliant decision by the captain and crew. I really enjoyed the ship itself. The food on board was of an excellent standard and there was plenty of variety. Extra drinks and coffees were another surprise to me - I had been warned how expensive these are on cruise ship, so imagine my delight to find that the prices charged were very reasonable indeed. The entertainment and attention to detail was brilliant, but what impressed me most, I think, was the way your wonderful crew looked after the more elderly and frail passengers, they were wonderful, patient and kind. I feel that as a company you are to be congratulated for providing and excellent cruise, your captain is to be congratulated for running such a pleasant ship and all the staff are to be congratulated for superb, courteous and pleasant service.

Just wanted to thank all at CMV for such an interesting and enjoyable inaugural trip on Columbus recently. Beautiful ship, wonderful friendly staff on board who are a real credit to you. First rate food and service. Our first trip with you. Previously cruised with Cunard and P&O. Just booked on your Marco Polo Mini Cruise from Liverpool in September!

We have recently returned from a cruise aboard the Marco Polo and wish to convey our thanks and appreciation for the service we received all through the holiday.

The cabins were first class, the food was excellent , the staff were all very helpful (all nationalities) and a big advantage for us was that we only had a 15 min car ride to the terminal.

I am sure in the future we will be tempted to sail with you again and we are passing our comments to all friends we meet.

Just returned from your cruise from Hull to Norway on the Marco Polo and we would like to say how much we enjoyed the cruise. As this was our first cruise we weren't sure of any procedures but the embarkation procedure was easy then shown to our cabin by a crew member. The staff on the ship were all friendly and helpful. The meals were excellent either in the Waldorf Restaurant or Marco's Restaurant. After our evening meal we went to the show in the Marc Polo Lounge and found the entertainment was really good.

During the days at sea, time was taken up by going to the lectures by John Hussy or watching the films shown in the Marco Polo Lounge.

We enjoyed it so much that we have just booked for next year for the Baltic Cities and St Petersburg on the Marco Polo departing from Hull.

We have just returned from a British Isles Cruise on Columbus and wanted to say how much we enjoyed our trip. Embarkation was a little chaotic at first (we were some of the first people on) but once the lanes had been put in place it went smoothly as did disembarkation. Our balcony cabin was clean and spacious and our steward could not have done more for us, he was efficient and friendly. The food in the Waterfront restaurant was very enjoyable with a good choice. The entertainment was good to start with but by the end of the cruise the shows were spectacular particularly the 'Round the World' evening. It was nice to see that the crew and other members of staff not normally acknowledged were given special thanks in a parade and cabaret in the Atrium, it was an evening enjoyed by everyone. We had such a good time we have booked to go to the Baltics next year.

We have recently returned from a wonderful cruise on the Columbus to Norway. There was so much that was great about the cruise. The ship was smaller than our only other cruise and nicer for it. Food was great, entertainment was very enjoyable and your staff are very friendly.

We have just arrived from the maiden voyage on the Columbus to Amsterdam and Antwerp. This was our first cruise and it lived up to more than our expectations. We had a fabulous time and enjoyed every minute of the cruise. The food was beautiful and plentiful. The staff were friendly and welcoming and the service was excellent. Thank you for a most fabulous holiday. I believe the Columbus will go from strength to strength.

Firstly, thank you for sorting out my parking information at Bristol for the above cruise. Secondly, we had a most enjoyable time, everything was splendid: the crew, the programme, the food! Thirdly, we really appreciated the informal Christian gathering you organised for us on the mornings when were at sea. Thank you.

Just come back from a 2-day cruise on Magellan to Dublin This is the first time we have cruised with CMV and must say our every need was taken care of. Little things such as a bus waiting for us outside the docks to take us to the car park, whilst on board you got the impression that you would be looked after in you needed it. I would call this company caring and kind. I certainly will consider booking again in the future.
