Cruise & Maritime Voyages (CMV) is pleased to announce a new series of cruises from Plymouth next Summer. It is the first time the company will sail from the port. There are five holiday alternatives planned onboard CMV’s elegant liner Marco Polo.
Fares will start from just GBP69 for an overnight weekend from Plymouth to Portsmouth with the opportunity to travel back by coach to Plymouth post-cruise.
Mike Hall, marketing director at CMV said: “We are delighted to put Plymouth on our cruise map, for our first operating season in 2021. We appreciate that many of our passengers prefer to cruise from their own local port, so our focus on regionality is key. Passengers in the local area can take advantage of less travel time and the expense of having to journey further afield to start the holiday.”
Marco Polo is a smaller traditional-style cruise ship and is very popular with British cruise passengers with a high repeat level. The 2021 cruise selection includes:- A six-night cruise 19 August gives time to relax and, providing the weather is good, to circumnavigate the Isle of Wight and a chance to view the Bournemouth Air Show before sailing along the River Seine to Rouen, France. Fares available from GBP 489pp.
