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.

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.
