Cruise & Maritime Voyages (CMV) is one of Australia’s leading independent cruise lines, offering a traditional, British cruise experience and exceptional value.
Over the past 10 years, the cruise line has become known for its relaxed, convivial ambience, exacting standards, and high levels of attentive personal service aboard each of its small to mid-sized ships.
CMV sails to over 280 destinations worldwide but has championed regional Australian destinations since 2014 to local and international travellers. The cruiseline is the first to be able to showcase all four South Australian ports in the one cruise, starting from and returning to Adelaide, as well as visiting Kangaroo Island, Port Lincoln and Wallaroo. CMV’s Vasco da Gama was the first cruise ship to visit Wallaroo on 7 December 2019, carrying 1,200 guests and 630 crew.
“When the ships come into town, it creates a buzz everywhere. Guests are coming off the ship, excited – not only guests but 600-odd crew on board, they’re also getting off and experiencing the local town. It means that it’s really bringing tourism into all the local bars and restaurants and cafes in local towns and areas, and people can go out and visit wonderful destinations and regions in South Australia,” said Dean Brazier Managing Director Cruise Maritime Voyages (CMV).
