What You Can Expect
Cruise & Maritime Voyages specialise in providing 'no fly' cruising holidays aboard smaller to mid-sized ships with a traditional British cruise experience. They believe these vessels offer a more leisurely and friendly 'home from home' style of cruising and maritime experience combining attentive and friendly service with stylish entertainment, delicious cuisine, daytime activities, and guest speaker and craft programmes on most sailings.
These smaller to mid-sized cruise liners are accessible to more ports of call than larger resort style ships, offering more varied and interesting itineraries. Our emphasis is very much on attaining high levels of customer satisfaction and we strive to ensure that our passengers return home with many fond memories and will cruise with us again and again. This reflects our own values and is the main reason we have decided to use CMV as our travel partners for cruise holidays.
The CMV Fleet
CMV have 5 ships of varying sizes all offering a different type of cruising experience. Whilst many of the cruises offered are for adults, several have been designated as 'multi-generational' and therefore have provision on board for families with younger children.
Astor offers a great opportunity to experience the bygone days of long distance sea travel on their voyage service between the UK and Australasia. This exquisite, classic style ocean liner offers great value premium style cruising for just 600 privileged guests.
In contrast to CMV's mid-sized vessels, Astoria (formerly Azores), is a classic cruise ship carrying just 550 guests and providing a very intimate cruise experience exclusively for adults. She operates a spring season of cruises from the UK prior to a summer season on the French market.
Columbus joined the CMV fleet in June 2017. This splendid medium-sized cruise ship enjoys a fine reputation on the British cruise market and will offer the same traditional cruising style that CMV is known for.
This medium-sized cruise liner adds a little more contemporary style to the traditional British cruise experience. Magellan features a wide range of comfortable lounge areas, well-appointed facilities and expansive panoramic viewing ideally suited to the more scenic cruises.
Over the years, the ever popular 800 passenger Marco Polo has built up a strong following and reputation on the British market with an enviable tradition of offering more interesting destination cruising and is positioned as a ‘child free’ ship operating exclusively for adult guests.
