Cruise & Maritime Voyages’ (CMV) newest vessel Magellan is to sail her first world cruise in January 2017.
Departing from London Tilbury in England on 5 January, the newly christened ship will embark on a 120-day ‘Around the World’ voyage visiting 43 ports in the West Indies, Panama Canal, French Polynesia, Australasia, South East Asia and the Far East, India, the Red Sea, Suez Canal and the Holy Land and the Mediterranean. The ship will return to London Tilbury on 5 May. Guests can also opt for nine shorter cruises sector options are also available based on Auckland, Sydney, Hong Kong and Singapore.
“The introduction of Magellan in 2015 has considerably broadened CMV’s market appeal and level of interest for our product with record sales achieved this year,” said Chris Coates, CMV’s commercial director. “Magellan at 46,052rt and carrying about 1,250 passengers accommodated in 726 cabins is the perfect sized vessel for this special long haul itinerary. Her generous passenger space ratios with spacious lounges and public areas, three dining venues and extensive deck space and observation points, make her the ideal world cruise choice for 2017 backed up by some really strong early booking price incentives to reward early bookers.”
Meanwhile, the 21,000gt Astor will set sail from London Tilbury on 16 October 2016 to sail a 46-night cruise to the West Indies, Panama Canal, French Polynesia and New Zealand, before arriving in the Australian city of Sydney on 1 December.
Astor’s guests will then have the option to return to England on Magellan’s northbound World Cruise voyage from Sydney on 23 February 2017. Meanwhile, Magellan’s guests can transfer to Astor’s northbound voyage, which will sail from Fremantle in Australia on 15 March, taking guests to South Africa and returning to London on 23 April.
