Cruise & Maritime Voyages is Britain's newest privately owned cruise line and 2015 is their sixth year of operating no fly cruises from a choice of 8 UK ports. 95% of guests rated the enjoyment of their cruise experience either excellent or good - high praise indeed! With a wide choice of cruising holidays to consider, their emphasis continues to be on attaining high levels of customer satisfaction and providing attentive and friendly service standards.
CMV offers a more traditional and leisurely cruising experience with distinctive, small to medium sized ships accessible to more ports of call with wonderful excursions. They have a friendly and attentive standard of service from an experienced international crew and a broad range of entertainment. There is a delicious selection of traditional British and international full board cuisine including afternoon teas and late night snacks, not to mention self-service tea and coffee. Guest lectures, daytime activities, classical interludes, plus a wide range of leisure facilities all combine to enrich your time onboard.
Opt for a full English breakfast, savour a leisurely lunch and enjoy a delightful five-course dinner in convivial company each and every day of your cruise. Buffet-style meals offer a casual alternative served up with a complimentary ocean view! There's also afternoon teas, late night snacks and traditional shipboard occasions such as the Captain’s Welcome and Farewell Dinners.
Look forward to starting your evening with a pre-dinner drink. Following dinner, the highly acclaimed entertainment team will display their talents in a big show such as Abba or We will Rock You. The late night cabarets will ensure your evenings keep going with a swing. Or how about a liqueur and good conversation; listening to the resident pianist; a few hands of cards; or making up a table for a syndicate quiz? There's plenty on board to keep you busy.
There are outdoor swimming pools on all of ships plus whirlpools together with expansive deck areas for that daily exercise, relaxation and viewing or a romantic stroll before you decide to call it a night.
The beautifully appointed Wellness Centres are nature’s secret of well being. They offers hairdressing & beauty treatments spanning across state of the art treatment rooms, relaxation area, sauna and extensive menu of massage treatments. Why not indulge yourself with life’s most perfect gifts: relaxation, invigoration and rejuvenation? Treat yourself to a spa package and design your own special day.
There’s sadly no excuse for leaving your fitness regime behind – your ship has a gym! Machines, fitness classes and personal training mean that you can make the most of your free time and restored energy levels. You might even have a little fun while you do something great for yourself!
The relaxing atmosphere is ideal for enjoying the programme of guest speakers, entertainers and craft specialists. The special Additions Programme, so called because it's additional to the other entertainment and leisure, is a range of other complimentary activities and entertainment for you to enjoy.
Cruise & Maritime Voyages specialise in providing no fly cruising holidays aboard smaller to mid-sized ships with a traditional British cruise experience. They believe these vessels offer a more leisurely and friendly 'home from home' style of cruising and maritime experience combining attentive and friendly service with stylish entertainment, delicious cuisine, daytime activities, and guest speaker and craft programmes on most sailings. These smaller sized cruise liners are accessible to more ports of call than larger resort style ships, offering more varied and interesting itineraries. The emphasis is very much on attaining high levels of customer satisfaction and we strive to ensure that passengers return home with many fond memories and will cruise with CMV again and again.
Standard, superior and premium cabins offer a wide range of standard cabin features but if you book one of the De Luxe or suite categories you can take advantage of some amazing extra benefits.
