There is still time to book a Cruise & Maritime Voyages (CMV) cruise departure before the end of the year. CMV has just a few cabins left following a near sell out year, such is the popularity of their traditional British cruise experiences. There are four remaining cruises with some availability. Fares are from just £159pp for a three night Marco Polo cruise to Ireland visiting Cobh (for Cork) and Dublin departing 18 December from Bristol – Avonmouth. An ideal choice for doing some late Christmas shopping.
CMV has other alternatives starting with Magellan from London Tilbury on 11 December for five nights visiting Amsterdam, Hamburg and Antwerp fares from only £299pp. A good selection of continental cities with great shopping opportunities.
For those looking to get away for the Christmas & New Year period then Magellan sets off 21 December from London Tilbury heading south to the Canary Islands and Madeira. This 15 night cruise will be at sea on Christmas Day with plenty going on. On New Year’s Eve you should have a good view of the famous Madeira fireworks. Fares from £1339pp.
A similar cruise itinerary is available from Bristol Avonmouth on 22 December for 14 nights on Marco Polo. Fares are from £1299pp, a good value option for the often expensive Christmas period at home.
The currency on board all CMV ships is sterling.
The fares quoted are from and per person based on two people sharing a twin inner cabin. All are subject to current limited availability. Includes delicious full board cuisine, afternoon teas and late night snacks, complimentary self-service tea & coffee 24 hours, big show entertainment, cabarets and classical interludes, daytime activities and leisure facilities, porterage of luggage, port to cabin and port taxes. For greater convenience CMV operate an automatic tipping system on board, so instead of worrying how much and when to tip, an amount of £5pp per night will be debited to the passenger’s on board account.
