We chose CMV for the itinerary that started in Singapore and ended in London 46 days later. The ship was a total delight - small but with many stylish lounges, a walk-around promenade deck, two sunny pools, and three free restaurant choices in addition to the buffet. Our interior cabin 4117 was spacious, quiet, and very steady during windy portions of the trip. Since George and I enjoyed every day on board and would do this cruise again, suffice it to say we really liked the food, entertainments, spa services, reading lounges, cabin attendants, cruise directors, casino folks, craft classes, passenger choir, afternoon tea, the informative lectures, and so many other aspects of this cruise. The ambience was relaxed - like being home - rather than super luxe. That made the cruise restful. With many sea days, we were able to read some great books. How nice is that - cruising along and reading? We did not buy a beverage package and survived quite well on tea, coffee, water, and an occasional Schweppes Bitter Lemon over ice. Lovely cruise, lovely staff, a variety of cuisines, and at a good price. Thank you CMV!!!

So enjoyable!!!

Cabin Review

Cabin 4117
Spacious, in the center of the ship, very steady in strong winds, quiet, outstanding cabin attendants (Olexsandra and Bernard), easy access to both forward amenities (spa, gym,) and aft amenities (restaurants and outdoor deck). It had a walk-in shower rather than a tub (our preference). We set the tv on the “Report from the bridge” during the night to keep track of the ship’s location and the weather outside. Very nice.
