I just had to write and let you know what a wonderful cruise we have just experienced on Columbus to the Baltics & St Petersburg. All crew were very friendly and extremely helpful from the moment we boarded until we, sadly, disembarked on Tuesday. Nothing was too much trouble for anyone and it was lovely that some crew recognised us from our cruise on Columbus last October. The entertainments this year were absolutely fantastic, varied and professional.

To say we are over impressed is an understatement. The whole experience far surpassed our expectations. I know we were not alone in saying that the cleanliness of the ship was second to none. The amount of staff employed as cleaners was phenomenal and they did a sterling job. The cabin was very well appointed with so much space, and the shower was one if not the best I have ever been on a ship. Room and ship temperature was perfect. Not sure where to begin with the staff because every single one of them from Captain to the lovely little cleaner in the laundrette were unbelievably friendly and so attentive. I couldn't get over how quickly empty plates were collected from pool deck staff. The pool guys ensured all sun beds and chairs were immaculate and in neat order. You have the friendliest reception staff I have ever encountered. All waiters and supervisors were lovely. Food was of a good standard and varied.

We wish to congratulate CMV staff on land and sea for their excellent professionalism, done with friendliness, helpfulness and efficiency. The cuisine on-board is exceptional for a cruise line and we have been on many.

I wanted to tell you what a lovely time we had and how much we enjoyed ourselves. The itinerary was perfect with the Air Show and the Red Arrows giving us a great kick off. The staff looked after us so well.

I just wanted to say how much I have enjoy my cruise Columbus, on the 11th of August to the Baltic and ST Peterburg from Tilbury. It has been my first cruise, but I know it will not be the last, the people were so friendly, the food stupendous, really nice experience. All have been really good. Thank you to you all.

Just back from the Fjord cruise on Columbus and must say was very impressed. From the controlled well run embarkation to the superb facilities on the ship to the equally impressive disembarkation, other cruise lines should learn from you. Onboard superb food great staff and fabulous entertainment. The ship itself was equally impressive, just about the perfect size.

My wife and I have recently returned home having spent 15 relaxing nights onboard Columbus, cruising the Canary Islands and Madeira. We would both like to say how much we enjoyed the cruise - our first on a CMV Ship. To put the comments that follow into perspective, we are cruise veterans having cruised with five other cruise companies (including Cunard, P&O and Holland America) over the past eight years. Our cabin was larger than almost all outside cabins we have had on other cruise ships. Food in the Waterfront and Plantation restaurants was always well presented. Members of staff throughout the ship readily acknowledged guests and were only too willing to hold doors open. The shows in the Palladium Theatre were excellent and unlike other cruise companies, these performances were aimed at the majority of guests eg most songs were for the 50+ age range. We hope to cruise with CMV again and would not hesitate in recommending you to friends.
