CMV to wave goodbye to Astoria

Cruise & Maritime Voyages (CMV) has announced that Astoria will leave its fleet this year.

Last year the company revealed that it would be growing its fleet after acquiring two new ships.

Chris Coates, CMV’s group commercial director 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.”

Astoria’s farewell season includes four cruises from Poole in March and April plus three sailings from Hull in September and October.

Astoria joined the CMV fleet as the Azores in 2015, replacing Discovery.
