We booked our queen bed cabin 12 months earlier and it was given to a couple of French ladies who had recently made the booking. Make sure you have a letter from the company confirming your selected cabin. We had to squat in a similar cabin to get what we paid for. Often English was not given over the PA system, only French. French and English speaking were segregated - probably just as well. Otherwise we had a wonderful time, the food and service by the wait and bar staff was... (read more)

The itinary was fantastic.
Food was good and staff very friendly and helpful.
Entertainment was very average.
The ship was just too old and noisy. As we only ever sailed at night the engine noise and room rattling kept us awake most nights. The beds were very uncomfortable with room size adequate.
All was good if you did not want to sleep. (read more)

Smaller is better. It enabled us to interact with the crew and to spend time with familiar faces amongst the passengers.
And the crew. What a fantastic group of people. They were friendly and always made us feel welcomed.
The selection of ports was great, with exception of Albania.
we would recommend this trip, and the ship, to anyone looking for a relaxing time and the opportunity to see a wonderful piece of coast and cities.
Well done guys. (read more)

YES, YES, YES...Classic International Cruise is a wonderful cruise. This ship, the crew/staff, the destinations, the pricing, the itineraries/ports, etc...we are EXCELLENT. Just the right allowance of time and freedom to surely pack each and every day. Only Albania was diappointing...I should have taken the offered shore excursion. Trust me on this one. (read more)

There is little entertaining to do on board the Classic International Cruises MV Arion ship. It is small by any standard and you can feel the waves much more than bigger ships as well as the sound of the engine room. This is because the ship is small.......I find it boring because there is little entertainment on board other than a few notable shows at night. Other than that there is really nothing to do onboard.......
I won't cruise with ships this small anymore. (read more)

Travelled with Classic International Cruises MV Arion - Small ship that leaves you nothing much to do when cruising on the sea. Small boat leaves it more subject to the waves and hear the engine sound while cruising. This can be because the ship is under 20,000 tons......it is really small.

On the whole I was very pleased with the Classic International Cruises MV Arion. I think we got what we paid for.
On the days at sea, we were finding it difficult to sit anywhere as the ship has no real comfortable sitting lounge.
We were able to get into small ports that the bigger ships couldn't get into - which was a big plus. Could have done with longer at some stops.
Impossible to get info on any port, so pressure was there to book excursions which were overpriced.
Dining was single... (read more)
