Cruise & Maritime Voyages
Welcome to Cruise & Maritime Voyages…
Cruise & Maritime Voyages aim to offer a more traditional and leisurely ‘country house’ style of cruising and maritime experience aboard our 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 us 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 too, 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.

CMV 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, CMV are offering Multi-Generational cruises in the summer months with no age restriction.
