Customer reviews for Columbus

  • Columbus

  • 03 Oct 2018

The crew members were excellent - friendly and helpful at all times. The cabin comfortable with loads of storage space. The food was plentiful and good. The only adverse comments are: the music was too loud in the bars for conversation, there could have been more entertainment on the days at sea, the table tennis table was badly situated and the self-service restaurant could be better 'laid out'. On the plus side , the Captain was very informative and friendly. The trips were well organised and had something to suit all tastes. This was our first cruise and we had no idea quite what to expect - but all we can say is that it will not be our last.

Our first cruise with CMV and sailing on Columbus..very pleased with everything.. especially the service the friendly and very hard working crew gave us. Our cabin was kept clean by our cabin steward who pleasantly complied to a couple of requests we made. The chef and maitre de catered admirably for me as I have dietary needs.. nothing was too much trouble despite having to cater for many other passengers. 10 out of 10.

What a fantastic Baltic Cruise. Columbus was great , really friendly staff, excellent food and well appointed staterooms. CMV cut down on the prices by using matt paper and no coloured photos on the daily programmes, a small card for the layout of the ship instead on those fold up maps. The food and staff were just as brilliant as other , more expensive cruise lines we’ve used. The entertainment was fair. Destination ports were very good. In other words they cut back on unimportant things but the very important things remain first class. It means I can go on two cruises instead of one!
