Hi there,

Yes, I (Andrew) and a friend (Peter) will be on this one. I was thinking of starting a roll call on CC early in the New Year. I have been lucky enough to have done quite a few cruises over the years but never been on CMV or to Iceland.

Hi Andrew, I see you have turned to the dark side.
I was on CC long before CN Phil - but as you can see have posted a lot more on the 'light side'. Cruise Critic Forum was virtually unknown in the UK back in 2009 and catered almost exclusively to USA-based cruise lines. I am looking forward to trying CMV and very much looking forward to seeing Iceland.

You will enjoy Iceland but beware the costs; a very expensive place.

If there is a tour to Stokkseyri for langoustine I can recommend it. We did it with Princess as we had done the Golden Circle trip, also highly recommended, on a previous trip.
