CMV's Astoria to sail final season with fleet

Cruise and Maritime Voyages will not be renewing the charter contract for its ship Astoria, which has been in the fleet since 2015, after this year.

CMV described the move as a 'difficult decision', but said it was necessary because two larger ships are joining the fleet in 2021.

The 550-passenger ship Astoria joined the CMV fleet in January 2015 to replace Discovery.

An inaugural 30-night voyage from Plymouth to the West Indies set a course of varied cruise itineraries.

CMV group commercial director Chris Coates said: "Although we will be sad to say farewell to Astoria, especially as she has built up a strong and loyal following, we are excited at the prospect of Pacific Dawn (to be renamed) joining the fleet in 2021 and another traditional-style ship for the British cruise market."
