We specialise in providing cruising holidays aboard smaller and medium sized classic and more traditional style ships. We believe these vessels, which are generally owned by independent and privately owned shipping companies, offer a more leisurely and friendly 'home from home' style of cruising and maritime experience and are accessible to a much wider choice of interesting and remote ports of call.
Cruise & Maritime Voyages realise that many seasoned and first time British cruisers alike from our seafaring nation, still prefer the more traditional cruising experience. Our emphasis is very much on attaining high levels of customer satisfaction and attentive and friendly service standards and we strive to ensure that our passengers return home with many fond memories and will cruise with us again and again.
The CMV fleet
Both our vessels carry around 800 passengers and offer a wide range of leisure facilities to enrich your time on board. Over the years the ever popular Marco Polo has built up a strong following and reputation on the British market offering a fine tradition of destination cruising and is positioned as a ‘child free’ ship operating exclusively for adult passengers from her home port of London Tilbury, Newcastle and Edinburgh Leith.
Her fleet mate, Ocean Countess which began service as the popular Cunard Countess and at the time became one of the best-known ships to sail the Caribbean Sea, enjoyed a great debut season of cruises with us in 2010 and 2011 and is already becoming a firm favourite. She will again operate an extended summer season of sailings from three different British ports including Hull, Liverpool and Greenock plus Dublin in Ireland.
