Ports

Fremantle

Historic Fremantle is your gateway to Perth, the capital of Western Australia. Situated some 20 kilometres upriver from Fremantle on the banks of the Swan River, Perth is a growing, bustling city where soaring high rises coexist with sandstone buildings from the colonial era. The population in and around Perth makes up some 8% of Western Australia's population. And it's here that life moves at a slower pace, from the wonders of the bush to the wineries of the Swan Valley.

Places of Interest
King's Park, Fishermans Harbour

Geraldton

Geraldton is a water enthusiast's paradise, a keen spot for surfing, diving and snorkelling. Located on the stunning Batavia Coast, Geraldton also offers visitors the opportunity to immerse themselves in its rich heritage. Learn about the Yamaji Tribe, discover the stories of local shipwrecks or tour to the HMAS Sydney Memorial site. 

Broome

Bordered by the Indian Ocean and sandy beaches on one side and the arid red-green landscape of the Kimberley wilderness on the other, Western Australia's Broome is a place a beat apart from the rest of Australia. Broome is a vibrant city filled with a history and culture all its own, as well as the gateway to the vast Kimberley wilderness.

Komodo Island

They look like visitors from another age of our planet: the Komodo dragons*. These lizards, which roam freely in Komodo National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, can grow to a length of as much as 3 metres. Head out on an exciting tour of discovery.

Places of Interest

Benoa

White beaches, elaborately placed rice paddy terraces or the friendly people, for whom Balinese culture and faith plays such an important role, will enchant you on the "Island of the Gods". Their beliefs find expression in the Barong dance, for example. But colourfully decorated altars and temples can be found in many places. One of the most beautiful is the garden temple Taman Ayun. But the mother of all temples is Besakih. This imposing complex is the principal sacred Hindu building in Indonesia.

Semarang

The world's largest sacred Buddhist building lay hidden for hundreds of years.
But the monumental Borobudur was rediscovered in 1835. A magnificent view over the countryside is waiting for you on the highest terrace of the UNESCO World Heritage Site - as well as 72 stupas with Buddha figures. The nostalgic Loco steam train takes you right through the picturesque nature of the island. And the fragrance of Indonesian clove cigarettes hangs in the air as you learn about the history of the crackling kreteks.

Ship info

Vasco Da Gama

With an enviable reputation and established following on the international cruise market, the premium 1220 passenger Vasco da Gama will join the Cruise & Maritime Voyages fleet in April 2019. Combining beautiful, contemporary decor with a more traditional cruise style, Vasco da Gama is small to mid-size, by comparison with the new mega-ships carrying up to 6000 passengers and is a wonderful new addition to the CMV fleet.

The 55,877 grt Vasco da Gama has nine passenger decks serviced by eight lifts, is stabilised and air conditioned throughout and underwent a multi-million-dollar refurbishment in 2015. In preparation for her maiden CMV voyage, she will undergo further upgrading and livery change.

The onboard facilities are impressive and include Hollywood’s, the fabulous two-tiered show lounge, where you may enjoy ‘big show’ entertainment from our talented singers and dancers or one of our special guest acts. With its panoramic seascapes, The Dome Observatory is a delightful venue to relax and watch the world sail by or to chat with fellow passengers, and at night, this is the place to be to dance the night away.

By contrast, head to the Blue Room, the perfect venue to enjoy some musical entertainment after another wonderful day ashore or a nightcap before taking that final stroll on deck and retiring to the comfort of your cabin. All in all, there’s a choice of five lounge bars, a pool bar and four entertainment venues each with its own individual style. Which will be your favourite haunt?

Vasco da Gama offers a choice of three main Waterfront Restaurants – Waterfront Restaurant, Waterfront Mediterranean and Waterfront Eurasia where, unlike our other ships, dining will be flexible and not fixed to specific sittings. You are therefore free to dine where and when you want to. In addition, there are two delightful speciality restaurants – The Grill and Chef’s Table (supplements apply) or, as an alternative, enjoy more relaxed buffet style meals at the Club Bistro.

The impressive three-decked atrium is the focal point of the ship offering a shopping galleria, Reception, Shore Excursions desk and photo gallery. Elsewhere, you’ll find a cinema, casino, Trumps & Aces bridge and card room, arts and crafts area, meeting room, ship’s library and children’s facilities. Plus, there’s Cappuccino’s coffee shop and Gelato’s ice cream bar to tempt you.

Vasco da Gama offers extensive deck areas and in keeping with her tradition, starboard and port side promenades with timber style decking. There are two swimming pools with the main top deck pool benefitting from a retractable roof so that you can relax in this stylish setting, whatever the weather. If you are feeling more active, then why not team up for a game of tennis or basketball. Be pampered at the well-appointed wellness centre with its beautiful spa amenities, make use of the hairdressing and beauty facilities, or work out in the well-equipped gym. 

Comfortable cabin accommodation ranges from standard to deluxe with 80% enjoying an ocean view. There are no less than 149 balcony cabins and 28 more spacious suites which also benefit from having private balconies.
