Cruise & Maritime voyages to add two more ships to fleet in 2021

Cruise & Maritime Voyages recently announced the expansion of their ocean fleet with the introduction of two new ships in 2021.

Increasing their fleet to eight ships, CMV will take delivery of P&O Australia’s Pacific Dawn (tbr) and Pacific Aria (tbr) in Singapore on the 2nd March and 2nd May 2021. The pair will spend time in drydock in Summer 2021 for minor upgrade and re-livery works before embarking on CMV maiden positioning voyages via the Suez Canal to Northern Europe. Both will be officially renamed following drydock.

Christian Verhounig, CEO of Cruise & Maritime Voyages said, “The introduction of two more ships to the global ocean fleet is the next exciting chapter of our strategic growth objectives. This will enable us to service increasing market demand for our traditional brand of cruising generated by our expanding international network of in-house sales offices and developing sources markets. We have now acquired five cruise ships in just five years and are firmly on course in carrying 200,000 passengers in 2021.”

Chris Coates, Group Commercial Director added, “As the CMV brand continues to evolve, the growing popularity of our traditional product, classic ships and destination focused cruise programs has encouraged us to accelerate plans to add capacity to the two top European cruise markets in the UK and Germany, which represents 85% of our business.

“These two fine cruise ships perfectly complement our existing fleet providing trade partners and consumers alike with much needed extra capacity. For 2020, we expect close to 70% of capacity to be sold by the year end, in line with expectations. This provides an ideal platform for the early introduction of new tonnage and opportunities for summer 2021 with the focus very much on higher yield business.”
