Leisure Facilities

Restaurants

Our maitre'd and his attentive waiting staff will welcome you to the elegant Waldorf Restaurant where you can opt for a full English breakfast, savour a leisurely five-course lunch and enjoy a delightful dinner every day of your cruise.

Whilst breakfasts and lunches are generally served in the restaurant on an open seating basis, two fixed time sittings are operated for dinner in the evening.

As a casual alternative, the light and airy Marco's Restaurant is open every day for buffet style breakfast, lunches and dinner. Here informality is the key and you can feel free to drop in without any ceremony. The Pool Deck lends itself particularly well to al fresco meals so a buffet breakfast or lunch from Marco's can be served up with a complimentary ocean view!

After dinner the show team would enjoy the pleasure of your company in the comfortable theatre-style Marco Polo Lounge as our artists display their talents in a snappily choreographed revue or colourful floorshow - all you need to do is just sit back and enjoy.

CMV cruises of five nights or more are accompanied by one or more of these experts giving informative talks or practical sessions on a range of fascinating subjects. These speaker subjects may include maritime history, broadcasting, gardens and even criminology! They are generally programmed to take place during days spent at sea rather than in port, so that you won't miss out.

CMV Club Class

After a brief sign-up session you are then put in touch with other passengers who share the same interests, allowing you to make the most of your time aboard. It's never forced - just helpful.
