Five cruise ships, which were part of the Cruise & Maritime Voyages fleet are currently up for sale at auction, following the demise of the cruise line in July.
Cruise & Maritime Voyages was Britain’s largest independent cruise line and was foundered in 2010. The cruise line operated the Marco Polo, Magellan, Columbus, Astor, Vasco da Gama and Astoria.
Unlike her former fleet mates, the 1948-built Astoria is not up for auction as the vessel was already due to leave the fleet in October 2020. Currently all five of the ships up for auction are docked in the United Kingdom, in London Tilbury and Bristol Avonmouth.
Cruise & Maritime Voyages were also planning on added two further ships to its growing fleet in 2021, the Amy Johnson and Ida Pfeiffer. The two ships currently remain part of the P&O Cruises Australia fleet, sailing as Pacific Dawn and Pacific Aria.
