Vasco da Gama did give us a value for money, three star plus service and we do want to thank you and your staff for that. We wouldn’t hesitate in cruising with you again. Thank you.

As first time cruisers, we cannot compare with other cruise lines, but our 10 days spent on Vasco da Gama were a most enjoyable experience. Though this small cruise ship is a little older than many of her competitors, she has been restored in such a way to compliment her era and design. "Small", to us, meant more intimate and we found the guests and crew alike to be friendly and cheerful, resulting in a pleasurable 10 day cruise. Both the public spaces and the cabins appeared to be generous in size and attractively decorated, with many smaller, more private spaces where guests could enjoy a drink, play a game or simply sit quietly and read or watch the sea go by. The show team singers & dancers were so professional - with a double new show daily, catering for the varying taste of passengers. Christmas Day was particularly enjoyable, culminating in a delicious & festive evening meal in all the dining venues. We were given unexpected gifts from CMV as well as a finale treat, late in the evening; a particularly creative Buffet on the Pool deck, involving, as well, a staff flag parade. A very special thank you & congratulations, CMV & Vasco da Gama!

It was a very smooth journey to & from our beautiful destinations. It was wonderful to be a part of cruising history, being the first cruise ship to visit Wallaroo, & the locals certainly did not disappoint by making us very welcome. I was very impressed by the food onboard, it was very delicious, & there were good options for those with dietary requirements. The production shows were very entertaining & a great sing~a~long. I will definitely recommend Vasco da Gama to others wanting a great cruising experience.

We are certainly not surprised with your award. We think Cruise and Maritime Voyages are a wonderful company, fabulous ships and staff. We look forward to our next cruise with you in February and again October next year from Newcastle. Hopefully there will be more!

We have now returned from our short cruise on the Magellan and must say that our party of seven enjoyed our time aboard. We were as were many passengers naturally disappointed that our call at St Mary's was cancelled but appreciated that it was due to weather. The Magellan being an older cruise vessel was fitted out both in the cabins and public rooms better than I expect. The entertainment was as expected, and the food better than we expected. As a retired travel agency owner with many friends still in the business, I will pass on my comments to them. Many thanks for your assistance.

I feel it is very important to let you know that your employees on that journey could not have done more to ensure everyone's comfort and enjoyment. We also had the opportunity to meet with representatives of the owners along the way, and they could not have been more delightful. As an aside, I would also like to say how much we appreciate the Anzac Day service.

We had the very best time. This has now set us a future high accommodation standard! The ship was very comfortable, we had lovely weather and smooth sailing almost all the way and actually disembarked in Germany, as a storm developed in the North Sea and we were unable to port in Amsterdam. CMV seamlessly organised transport etc back to Amsterdam. We enjoyed all our excursions, glimpsed/experienced so many countries, great food and wine and met some lovely people. Going through the Suez Canal was an absolute highlight, as was Mumbai, Malta, Barcelona and Lisbon, not to mention the Middle East countries we visited and many more. We delighted in our days at sea to just relax.
