Steve’s Sojourns A cruise taster.
Cruise line Cruise & Maritime Voyages (CMV) is offering the ideal opportunity to try cruising for the first time this Summer on a 2-night mini cruise. The traditional and classic Astoria sails from Portsmouth (They also sail for other ports all around the country) on 30 August on a 2-night taster cruise including full board accommodation, stylish entertainment and leisure facilities, with fares available from just £99pp.
You can step aboard Astoria for this two-night mini cruise from Portsmouth to Hull. This taster cruise is a good introduction to cruising. Included is full board accommodation, stylish entertainment and use of the ship’s leisure facilities. You can extend your stay in Hull and travel back independently or take the free pre or post cruise coach transfer service.
Cruise & Maritime Voyages specialise in providing no fly cruising holidays aboard smaller to mid-sized traditional and classic cruise ships including the Astoria. The CMV experience offers a leisurely and friendly ‘home from home’ style of cruising, combining attentive and friendly service with stylish entertainment, delicious cuisine, daytime activities, and guest speaker and craft programmes on most sailings.
In contrast to many of the huge resort style cruise ships, the Astoria is a classic cruise ship carrying just 550 guests and provides a very intimate cruise experience exclusively for adults. CMV’s smaller to mid-sized cruise liners are accessible to more ports of call than larger resort style ships, offering more varied and interesting itineraries.
The fare quoted is based on two people sharing a twin inner cabin and includes delicious full board cuisine, afternoon teas and late-night snacks, Captain’s Cocktail Party, complimentary tea & coffee 6am to midnight, big show entertainment, cabarets and classical interludes, daytime activities and leisure facilities, guest speaker and arts & crafts, 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 £7pp per night will be debited to the passenger’s on-board account.
