Returned to Tilbury on the 14 Dec from a 46 night cruise. I am a solo traveller. The cabin was very large with loads of space for clothing. The ship is beautifully clean and the staff are lovely and helpful. The food is good. You won't go hungry.. I have been on several cruises but found this one excellent value for money and would definitely use Cruise and Maritime again if they keep their single passenger prices reasonable. Overall I was delighted..

This was our second cruise. We went on a cruise to Canaries and Madeira. The ships crew, service and its cleanliness was amazing. In common with some other passengers we did not get our booked dining time, even though we booked 11 months previously. We were told on board that the ship is just given the passenger information by head office. Head office told us "There is a 'mutual understanding that this (dining) is not done on a guarantee basis". We find this appalling when relatively easy computer programmes can be designed to guarantee desired siting. If you are infirm then check VERY carefully gangways that the ship may use (whether its the decision of the ship or the ports). We went to Lisbon where a ramp was use with many steps. At all other ports the gangway was obstruction free. In addition the port at Lisbon is being modernised with low cost labour laying cobbles which as not bedded in correctly. This is NOT CMV's issue. But, take note for the future ! The food was generally far better that what we experienced on the Oriana (P&O), but beware of tasteless/textureless sausages, crab salad with NO crab (it's 30-40% white fish with added crustaceans). We will definitely consider Cruise and Maritime again, but will do more homework before booking

I returned from my 3rd cruise on Columbus this year, at the end of October, I am a solo passenger, and was given 5 star treatment from ALL staff. It was my birthday whilst on the ship and of course along came the cake in he restaurant along with the waiters singing happy birthday. As if that was not enough after my meal as always I visited Taveners bar where the waiters naming a few Yuliya, Ellina, Olesya and Ther had organised the singer and everybody else to sing happy birthday to me, what a moment will never forget it. I then again as always went to the Dome night club at about 10.30pm, just as I sat down Arasee the young lady waitress walked up to me and wished me happy birthday and brought me my usual drink, it did not end there she then brought to my table the biggest birthday cake I have seen and once again the singers sang happy birthday to me. I am told this was Arasee's first cruise and for a young lady to go to the trouble and organise such a thing for me was truly remarkable she provided plates and even cut the cake and shared with other passengers and bar staff for me, other passengers commented at what a lovely surprise given by this young lady this is what makes C&M SPECIAL and I will never forget and truly hope to see her on my next C&M Cruise. All staff were brilliant but the ones I have mentioned make me want to come back and back and back. THANK YOU
