Marco Polo and Astor to be scrapped

CMV fleet sold at auction

The entire fleet of the now-defunct Cruise & Maritime Voyages has gone up for auction, with Marco Polo and Astor due to be scrapped.

Vasco da Gama, which was built in 1992 for Holland America Line, was bought by Mystic Invest for $10,187,000, according to Cruise Industry News. The vessel joined P&O Australia in 2015 before joining CMV in 2019, sailing for TransOcean, the company’s German-speaking brand. It is capable of carrying up to 1,258 guests.

Columbus, which was built in 1988, and joined CMV in 2017, has been sold to SeaJets for $5,321,000. The vessel carries up to 1,400 guests and has sailed for Princess, P&O, Ocean Village and P&O Australia.

SeaJets has also bought Magellan. The ship, which was built in 1985 for Carnival Cruise Line, had a major refit in 2009. It was sold to CMV in 2014. SeaJets have bought it for $3,431,000.

Astor and Marco Polo failed to attract a buyer and are due to be scrapped, according to reports.
