From cruises of the British Isles to those visiting faraway lands such as Australia, Cruise & Maritime Voyages visit locations all around the world, leaving it up to you to decide where you would like your next adventure to begin.
Whether you’re new to cruising, or have been an avid cruiser for a long time, there are plenty of itineraries to choose from to suit a range of tastes and budgets. As well as destinations, Cruise & Maritime Voyages also offer a variety of themed cruises, which are great if you don’t have a particular location in mind.
Cruise & Maritime Voyages aim to offer a more traditional and leisurely ‘country house’ style of cruising and maritime experience aboard thier classic-style cruise ships - Columbus, Magellan, Marco Polo, Astor and Astoria, where the emphasis is very much on providing attentive service within a friendly ‘home from home’ atmosphere. These small to mid-size ships are accessible to more ports of call than the larger resort ships, enabling them to offer some truly innovative itineraries.
Cruise & Maritime Voyages is the UK’s leading independent cruise line dedicated to providing high levels of customer service. The start of your cruise holiday should be a stress-free experience, that allows you to step on board ready to be pampered and waited on. After check-in formalities, you will soon be making your way along the gangway and welcomed aboard by a steward who will personally show you to your cabin.
Sterling is the onboard currency on board Columbus, Magellan, Marco Polo and Astoria, so there’s no need to worry about currency exchange.
Marco Polo and Astoria operate as ‘child free’ ships. This means that you can enjoy the pleasures of cruising in the company of adult passengers only. Cruise & Maritime Voyages will accept teenagers who are 16 years old or above at the time of sailing, but they must be accompanied by adult passengers. Although Magellan and Columbus will operate for adults only, Cruise & Maritime Voyages are offering eight Multi-Generational cruises in 2018 and five in 2019 with no age restriction. Please note that there are no specific children’s facilities on board.
Although Columbus and Magellan operate essentially for adults only, Cruise & Maritime Voyages are offering a choice of Multi-Generational cruises, with no age restriction, during school holiday periods. These cruises enable the whole family to enjoy quality time together. Look out for the ‘smiley face’ symbol indicating these cruises. Please note that there are no specific children’s facilities on board.
For singles travelling on cruises of 6 nights or more, Cruise & Maritime Voyages offer a special programme of events including a welcome cocktail party and get togethers with the opportunity to meet like-minded travellers. On board Columbus and Magellan, Cruise & Maritime Voyages have set aside 150 twin cabins for single occupancy priced with just a 25% supplement on the equivalent category twin share prices.
To enhance the enjoyment of your cruise, we have created a wide choice of optional shore excursions designed to maximise your time at each port of call.
Celebrate a special birthday or anniversary, or just spoil yourself, by ordering a beautiful floral display in your cabin, a selection of fine wines or a relaxing spa treatment. Cruise & Maritime Voyages can even arrange a wedding vows renewal ceremony with the Captain and officers.
