Cruise & Maritime Voyages (CMV) is one of Australia’s leading independent cruise lines, offering a traditional cruise experience and exceptional value. Over the past decade, the cruise line has become known globally for its relaxed, convivial ambience, exacting standards, and high levels of attentive personal service aboard each of its small to mid-sized ships. This is reflected by a number of global awards, including ‘Best Emerging Cruise Line in Australia’ at the Cruise Passenger 2019 Awards and ‘Best for Solo’ at the Cruise Critic Annual Editors’ Picks Awards. Nosing into smaller harbours off-limits to many others, CMV offers a range of exciting itineraries to over 280 destinations worldwide, around Australia out of Adelaide and Fremantle, as well as through Asia, Africa, South America, Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean and Europe, visiting Iceland, Greenland, the Baltics, Norwegian Fjords, Northern Lights, British Isles and more.
CMV offers a more traditional and leisurely cruising experience with distinctive, small to medium sized ships accessible to more ports of call with wonderful excursions. They have a friendly and attentive standard of service from an experienced international crew and a broad range of entertainment. There is a delicious selection of traditional British and international full board cuisine including afternoon teas and late night snacks, not to mention self-service tea and coffee. Guest lectures, daytime activities, classical interludes, plus a wide range of leisure facilities all combine to enrich your time onboard.
Opt for a full English breakfast, savour a leisurely lunch and enjoy a delightful five-course dinner in convivial company each and every day of your cruise. Buffet-style meals offer a casual alternative served up with a complimentary ocean view! There's also afternoon teas, late night snacks and traditional shipboard occasions such as the Captain’s Welcome and Farewell Dinners (on selected cruises).
Look forward to starting your evening with a pre-dinner drink. Following dinner, the highly acclaimed entertainment team will display their talents in a big show such as Abba or We will Rock You. The late night cabarets will ensure your evenings keep going with a swing. Or how about a liqueur and good conversation; listening to the resident pianist; a few hands of cards; or making up a table for a syndicate quiz? There's plenty on board to keep you busy.
There are outdoor swimming pools on all of ships plus whirlpools together with expansive deck areas for that daily exercise, relaxation and viewing or a romantic stroll before you decide to call it a night.
The beautifully appointed Wellness Centres are nature’s secret of well being. They offers hairdressing & beauty treatments spanning across state of the art treatment rooms, relaxation area, sauna and extensive menu of massage treatments. Why not indulge yourself with life’s most perfect gifts: relaxation, invigoration and rejuvenation? Treat yourself to a spa package and design your own special day.
There’s sadly no excuse for leaving your fitness regime behind – your ship has a gym! Machines and fitness classes mean that you can make the most of your free time and restored energy levels. You might even have a little fun while you do something great for yourself!
The relaxing atmosphere is ideal for enjoying the programme of guest speakers, entertainers and craft specialists. The special Additions Programme, so called because it's additional to the other entertainment and leisure, is a range of other complimentary activities and entertainment for you to enjoy.
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. Cruise & Maritime Voyages visits over 280 destinations worldwide, with its global fleet currently comprised of Vasco da Gama, Columbus, Magellan, Marco Polo and Astoria. The cruiseline also recently announced the acquisition of Amy Johnson to join its expanding ocean fleet from 2021. These smaller sized cruise liners are accessible to more ports of call than larger resort style ships, offering more varied and interesting itineraries. The emphasis is on attaining high levels of customer satisfaction and we strive to ensure that passengers return home with many fond memories and will cruise with CMV again and again.
