We booked this cruise specifically for the itinerary of the Scottish Isles, Scilly Isles and Guernsey. Hurricanes and gales forced CMV to abandon all but 2 of the planned ports of call and substantially change the itinerary to Ireland, France and Cornwall. Obviously the safety of passengers was paramount but when such a substantial change is necessary surely customers should be offered the option of their money being refunded. All we got was a £50 onboard credit and the offer of 25% of another cruise! Apart from this, we found the eastern european staff surly and unhelpful, thank goodness for the asian and indian staff who did their best to make us feel valued and even managed to smile - something the Ukranians, Serbs and Russians appear to be incapable of. Needless to say we will not be using Cruise Maritime Voyages again and certainly would not recommend it to anyone!
