We have just returned from a wonderful cruise around Britain & Amsterdam on the Astoria. We feel compelled to write and thank you for a wonderful 10 day cruise. We cannot thank the crew enough for their kindness and attention to all our needs, the food was wonderful and the waiters’ service and the cabin crew were first class. We also commend the captain for his decision to reverse course to ensure we missed the bad weather.

I would just like to say how much my wife and I really enjoyed our recent voyage to the Azores on Marco Polo. The food was excellent, in fact it was by far the best that we have ever had on many voyages in the past twenty years. The Executive Chef and all his staff, together with our two waiters did exceptionally well. I would also like to commend the superb service that we received from our cheerful and friendly cabin steward, our room was kept immaculately clean throughout the voyage. The entertainment in the show lounge was on the whole good, Dana was exceptional and really showed how to engage an audience. Also the port of Bristol was very efficient and well organised.

What a great disembarkation we had following our wonderful cruise in March to the spring gardens and River Seine experience. The disembarkation was fast, smooth and the fact we were able to park in the terminal itself was fantastic. So our thanks to everyone for the cruise and for the disembarkation on the 1st April.

This was our third time on Astoria, we love her very much and she feels like our own home from home. As always all the staff were so helpful and happy to help, which makes such a lovely atmosphere. I cannot praise the Maitre'd and our waiter on table 52 in the Olissipo Restaurant highly enough for looking after me so well with all my food allergies, the food was excellent. I tried to thank the Maitre'd on our final morning but was unable to find him, it was a busy morning. Also the same praise goes to the ships Doctor and Nurse who were excellent when my husband became ill just after embarking.

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.
