Many thanks for your interesting and very thorough review Donna, it's greatly appreciated. :thumbup:

I'm amazed that on disembarkation day you had to vacate your cabin by 6am. However, the CMV website states: "The full embarkation and disembarkation procedures and timings will be confirmed when tickets and cruise documentation are despatched, usually 14 days prior to sail date.", so I guess you'd been warned! But anyway, I'd have had to have got up at about 5am and I wouldn't have been happy - that's the middle of the night for me.

Nope when the cruise docs came it said disembarkation info would be given near end of cruise. I did know we would be docking at 5 am but never for second thought that meant we had to be out cabin at 6 lol

It was a pity that it rained so much. Norway is so much better with sun and blue skies, but I know you have been there before, so hopefully will have seen it at its best. I haven't sailed with CMV (yet), but I would be happy to do so in the future after reading your review.



Yeah it was nice in July :lol: apparently during night Thursday into Friday the weather was bad lots of rocking and rolling. People couldn't sleep woman next door was up all night with sea sickness, spoke to several people at breakfast who said they was terrified things where falling over in cabins. Mum said she couldn't sleep and it went until about 4 in morning . Me I slept through the whole thing only waking up about 4.30 am as I suffer from occasional night cramps which cause my leg to spasm and seize up. Once I stretched that I went back to sleep woke up back of 7 fresh as a daisy everyone else was exhausted due to lack of sleep :lol:. I kept going what storm never heard or felt a thing although I do remember thinking when I got into bed it felt a little rocky but I fell asleep soon after :lol:

We have been like that too several times Donna - people saying how rocky it was and we never noticed it, slept right through it! :lol:
