Astoria Cruise Review by CavalierLRW
- Sail Date: March 2017
- Destination: Norwegian Fjords
Embarkation at Tilbury was very smooth and we quickly settled in to our cabin. Our cabin steward was very helpful and obliging. The cabin was small but this was not a problem.
We had booked several excursions at various ports - these were very well organised and most enjoyable. The only disappointment was the entertainment - the cabaret seemed rather amateurish. But the guest lecturers made up for this - one in particular was a press photographer who gave several talks on photography, her life as a press photographer and how best to take photos of the Northern Lights.
The food was excellent and the catering staff (waiters, Maitre D and his 2nd in command) were first class, nothing was too much trouble.
We met several passengers who had either travelled with CMV before, or who had cruised on the Astoria (Azores) before - so this was a great endorsement of both company and ship. We certainly intend to cruise with this company again, possibly on the Astoria (Azores) or maybe on one of their other ships.

LysefjordAn excellent mini cruise up the Lysefjord, past Pulpit Rock to a lovely waterfall where we were able to sample the very fresh, extremely cold water. We then stopped at a fjordside cafe for waffles with cream and jam, and coffee - delicious!!View All 62 Lysefjord Reviews
