Cruise & Maritime Voyages

The Cruise & Maritime Voyages Experience

Cruise & Maritime Voyages specialise in providing cruising holidays aboard small to mid-sized ships with a traditional British cruise experience. Their vessels offer a leisurely and friendly ‘home away from home’ style of cruising combining attentive and friendly service with stylish entertainment, delicious cuisine, daytime activities, and guest speaker and craft programmes on most sailings.

Cruise & Maritime Voyages are best for

Guests looking for a relaxed, traditional British style cruise experience. Amy Johnson, Columbus, Magellan, Marco Polo and Astoria operate as ‘child free’ ships, which means that you can enjoy the pleasures of cruising in the company of like-minded adult passengers only. Columbus does, however, operate a selection of multi-generational cruises during the English summer school holidays, where no age restrictions are in place.

Vasco da Gama also offers multi-generational voyages during the Australian summer, and while she doesn’t offer any dedicated kids facilities onboard, the space and choice of amenities makes her perfect for the whole family, grandparents, adult children and kids, to enjoy quality time together.

Atmosphere & Experience onboard 

Whether enjoying a short break close to home or embarking on a grand voyage, Cruise & Maritime Voyages’ classically-styled ships offer all the comforts of home and more. Choose from up to six lounges, bars and dining venues onboard, unwind poolside or enjoy some of the best cabaret performances at sea. There are no ziplines, waterslides or rock-climbing walls, just friendly, attentive service, a relaxed country-club ambiance and exceptional value for money.

Clientele

Sailing from a host of ports around the UK, Ireland and Europe, Cruise & Maritime Voyages carries a predominantly British clientele 55+ years, with a growing presence of Australian and New Zealand guests. Like most cruise lines, Cruise & Maritime Voyages caters well to couples but has also received accolades for their solo traveller options as well, most recently by Cruise Critic Australia. Locally on Vasco da Gama, their clientele are generally couples and solo travellers from Australia and New Zealand with a few families onboard as well.
