The present, 101-mile-long Canal took 15 years to build, was completed in 1869 and shaved a mere 7,000 miles off the journey from England to India. It is the second to cross the Isthmus of Suez – the first was constructed in the 5th century BC and was in use until the 8th century.

Had a great cruise and the itinerary was spot on ....this ship is CMV's best but we have been on the others which are also very good. The only downside was the crew not enforcing where children could and could not go - so beacuse of that I would not do a Multi Generational Cruise again.

Nice enough ship if you don't mind it being in need of an update. Bathrooms are past their best, beds old and quite low. Food was served luke warm. We got a good deal or I might have complained. Would I go back on her? Yes if I got a cheap deal with a good itineray.
