Cruise & Maritime Voyages is Britain's leading independent cruise line and 2019 heralds our tenth year of operating no-fly cruises from a choice of 15 UK and Irish ports. We believe our smaller more intimate ships offer a leisurely and traditional home from home country house style of cruising with the emphasis very much on personal service and going that extra mile. That’s why over 40% of our passengers cruise with us again and again and why over 95% of our guests are satisfied and enjoy their cruising experience with CMV.
Vasco da Gama, Columbus, Marco Polo, Astor, Astoria and Magellan are operated under charter by Cruise & Maritime Voyages who have a wealth of cruise industry expertise.
More and more cruise passengers are choosing to sail from the UK and starting their holiday from the moment they step aboard. Cruise & Maritime Voyages has been quick to recognise this and to provide an exciting and varied programme of convenient regional departures from no less than eleven British ports: London Tilbury, Bristol Avonmouth, Bristol Port, Portsmouth, Poole, Hull, Newcastle, Liverpool, Greenock, Dundee, Aberdeen, - bringing cruising closer to home.
A Laugh on the Ocean Waves On selected cruises, enjoy ‘A Laugh on the Ocean Waves’ where you are invited to enjoy the talents of Cruise & Maritime Voyages' guest comedians.
