We sailed Columbus out of... by gw375962

Sail Date: /

We sailed Columbus out of Tilbury on 4th August 2018 Never sailed with CMV before, but have sailed with royal, celebrity, NCL, Marella and Cunard We found the ship to be in good condition for her age, We had an ocean view cabin 6161, loads of storage space lovely big window with lots of natural light . Tv tiny and sound shocking. Shower plenty of powerful hot water. The inside of the ship has a spacious feel, with the exception of the buffet area which felt cramped. The main dining room was well laid out, and good service and food, with the exception of Greek night. Entertainment was a bit hit and miss. The classical music in the atrium each evening was very enjoyable. The oasis bar area with jacuzzi was a lovely area of peace and quiet. And adults only on this multigenerational cruise. We would sail with CMV again.

This is a get what... by poppypink

Sail Date: /

This is a get what you pay for cruise , cabins large , beds hard . 1500 passengers approx 200 sunbeds , whitnessed actual fights over them . Food in buffet weird , meat , no potatoes lots of veggie food so they saved money on meat . Chips once one lunch time for adults , kids menu same every night , only one type of egg at breakfast hardly any days for fried eggs for your bacon. Entertainment dire , same in bars every night for two weeks. Multi generational cruise then kids banned from certain pools . Then to top it all itinerary changed to a lot of half days passengers agreed you hadn’t got time to do anything .

Enjoyable cruise by cjsc

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Cabin was excellent, loads of storage, comfy bed, quiet. Public areas including bars, theatre, open decks all very nice. Plenty of sunbeds available. Staff on the whole extremely good. Entertainment team very talented but unfortunately only did three shows in two weeks . They also did solo performances which were not as good. Uk guest acts were average. Food ranged from ok to very good but was usually spoilt by being unbelievably salty. With the majority of passengers being over 65 I'm sure some will have blood pressure, heart and kidney problems so salty food not the best for them!! Only one formal night out of 14 then 13 casual nights was also disappointing, but obviously didn't spoil our enjoyment. Would do it again!

Very disappointed with the level... by swindonnicki

Sail Date: /

Very disappointed with the level of service and customer service on this ship. Much better on Magellan, although not perfect. Ran out every morning of clean glasses and mugs. Food in waterfront amazing but service so slow! Night two an hour for main course. Problems getting dairy free anything. Hot tub not running, don't care it's cold out brochures state this is available. Jacuzzi available in spa.... €40 each!! ( that was also out of order) We thought it quite dated in cabins. It's been upgraded but not with a great finish; found screws in various places. Cabin 6203 very noisy, turned out bar is above it. Have no intention of going on this ship again and would not recommend it.

Do your own thing for shore excursions

Ask for food to be unsalted and add your own. Some of the food was unbelievably salty!
