One thought on “No solo Supplements”
The unfortunate thing about this is CMV is quite a poor cruise line: old, badly-run ships (their MV Discovery was detained in 2013 by the UK authorities because the staff weren't familiar with safety and fire escape access and the cruises cancelled, in late 2014 the ship's actual owner sold their MV Voyager and they replaced it with a chartered 1961-built Portuguese vessel). Still, £1568 for a 14-night Nordic cruise is good value as long as you know what you're getting.
